Yesterday we told you about the troubles facing Ole Miss athletic director Pete Boone. You know, these:
* For the first time since 1995-96, UM missed out on postseason play in football, basketball and baseball.
* Rival Mississippi State is piling up wins over the Rebels in recent years.
* Various fan groups are firing off letters, complaining to the chancellor, and starting websites that promote “change.” (We assume that means “change” at the top of the UM athletic department.)
* And lets not even get started on the Black Bear mascot nonsense.
So what’s Boone saying about all this?
“It’s one of those years you dust yourself off and move forward.”
Sound advice that can be applied after any stumble in business or life. We doubt many Rebel fans will be moved however.
And now we’ll be left with this song in our head for the rest of the weekend, too. Thanks, Pete.
