Outgoing UM A.D. Boone Wants Unity

Ole Miss athletic director Pete Boone has been the target of the largely anonymous fan group “Forward Rebels” for the past several months.  Newspaper ads have called for his ouster.  Threats have been made regarding giving and donations. 

Two weeks ago, Boone announced that he would be stepping down in 2012.  Today, UM’s AD spoke with Parrish Alford of The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal and he spoke of a need to unify the Rebel fanbase:


“… Anything I might say about that group might appear to be self-serving, but I will say this as an Ole Miss fans, and I can say it, because I’m not going to be the AD, it’s absolutely devastating to have the Ole Miss fan base divided.  We’re not big enough to have that sort of divisiveness.  We’re competing with schools that have 25, 30 and 40,000 students, 300,000 active alumni, $100 million budgets… and we’re going to split up?  It’s the silliest thing I’ve every heard of.”

Bye Petey....you were simply incompetent in the role of AD. You lacked the institutional background and you certainly
lacked the people skills. You were too buys worrying about bottled water in the south end zone, cell phone bills for coaches
on the road. And when you look at your two different stints as AD there aren't many succuess outside facilities management.which
was your job. Robert Khayat did you no favors by allowing you to continue. Dan Jones contributed to the ongoing debacle by
renewing your contract. Go away Pete and find something else to break
