Hugh Freeze pens letter to players prior to Alabama game
Hugh Freeze wants his players to block out the media noise prior to Ole Miss’ showdown with No. 1 Alabama on Saturday.
The Rebels coach joined The Paul Finebaum Show on campus in Oxford Friday afternoon to talk about his team’s preparation and mindset for the game.
In the segment, which can be viewed online, Freeze shared with Finebaum that he wrote, with the help of bestselling author Andy Andrews, a letter to his team that players will receive upon checking into the team hotel in Tupelo, Miss.
“It’s called, ‘What do you believe?’” Freeze said of the note. “And it all centers around: the one question we all need to answer before we get on that field tomorrow.”
Freeze hopes the letter will get the Rebels to forget about any picks and commentary they’ve heard from the media this week and focus on the game plan.
