Desperate times? Ole Miss invites former players to weigh in on state of football team
Things aren’t going so well for the Ole Miss Rebels this year, either on the field or off of it.
After coach Hugh Freeze resigned amid an embarrassing scandal this summer, interim coach Matt Luke has presided over a Rebel team that has gone only 2-3 so far, losing both its SEC games by a combined score of 110-26, with most of those 26 points coming in garbage time against Auburn.
Searching for answers, Ole Miss AD Ross Bjork tweeted out an invitation on Monday morning inviting all former Ole Miss players to come to a meeting to weigh in on the future of the program:
Calling on all @OleMissFB players to attend. Want to hear your input on moving our program forward together. Go Rebels! pic.twitter.com/eilvd66vml

Based on recent on-field results, it’s probably safe to say the former players won’t be thrilled with the direction the program is going.
Of course, it needs to be said that the Rebels have played Alabama and Auburn the last two weeks — two of the top programs in the country.
Three-straight home games against Vanderbilt, LSU and Arkansas could help right the ship, but picking up a win against Vandy or LSU will be key ahead of the Oct. 27 meeting of former players.
