Ole Miss just released a video entitled simply "The Program", highlighting the changes that the new coaching staff has brought on board, as well as the offensive and defensive philosophies.
Linebacker D.T Shackelford has been impressed with the amount of time that the coaches are putting in with interaction with the players off the field.
"I may get a text sometimes in the morning, and it has nothing pertaining to football. It's probably something about life, or in the afternoons I may get something saying we got film. It's just constant reminders and you can just tell they care."
Hugh Freeze made one thing very clear during the video. They will understand how to compete for an SEC West title.
"We're going to put ourselves in position in years to come to be in the mix for that. I understand how tough this conference is, but Ole Miss is going to put ourselves in the talks for the SEC West Championship and not only on the field, but also in recruiting classes. We refuse to think we can't compete with others for those titles."
As the first practice wrapped up, Freeze commended the team on their effort and attitude, and then reminded them to tell three people (trainers, coaches, managers, etc.) thank you on their way off the field.
"If you didn't notice, we try to make our practices as chaotic as possible. That way when you get into a stadium that's chaotic it's just a normal everyday for us" he added.
Very good video.
