While the assistants have hit the road recruiting, Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze and Athletic Director Ross Bjork hit the road to meet with boosters and drum up support at conventions and other events around the state.
The tour, which started yesterday with a trip to The Dock Bar and Grill in Gulfport, include stops in a total of 15 cities across Mississippi.
For two of the newest faces of Ole Miss athletics, it's been a great way to get out and visit with the Rebel faithful. “This is a great way to kick off my tenure, a great way for Coach Freeze to meet people around the state he hasn't met before.” Bjork said.
Bjork explained his excitement and believes many of the pieces of the puzzle are in place for Ole Miss to succeed. "“The foundation is there. $125 million worth of facilities the last 10 years, the atmosphere at Swayze Field, the atmosphere in ‘The Grove,’ the Manning family, the ‘Blind Side.’ There are so many assets we have to work with.”
After catching a glimpse of their travel accommodations, we can see they are definitely traveling in style. There's no doubt who's coming to town when this bus rolls in.
