Ole Miss AD Bjork defends Landshark after warning from ref
The fake dorsal against the helmet has become a symbol for Ole Miss’ defensive prowess under coach Hugh Freeze.

Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork joined the ensuing discussion via Twitter, defending the gesture as long as the players stay within the rules.
