Ole Miss football coach Hugh Freeze needs to hold players accountable for insensitive behavior (Gay)
Yahoo Sports ^ | 10/4/2013 | Pat Forde

OK, Hugh Freeze. Time to lead.

Lead your football players at Mississippi out of ignorance and into understanding. Lead your young men toward accountability. Show that the remarkably, distressingly resilient track record for intolerance at Ole Miss can be changed for the better.

Because if ever a situation cries out for a coach to set the tone of team behavior, and to firmly establish what is acceptable and unacceptable, it's the situation at Ole Miss today. This is no time for soft-peddling it. There is a reputation at stake for a team, a university and a state. [SNIP]

Many Christians openly consider homosexuality a sin, even in the face of dramatically changing public opinions in this area. I don't know where Freeze stands on this. But regardless of his beliefs, players who are openly hostile toward the mere subject matter of homosexual persecution are in need of immediate behavior modification.

Why? They have the right to their opinions and beliefs. Believe me, I do not care for Old Piss or it's football program, but you have to respect guys who object to the gay agenda indoctrination.

Exactly. So the progressive pc faction at Ole Miss decides to promote the gay agenda on campus and probably hands out free tickets on campus (with some free (food, drinks)). A bunch of meathead football players show and start laughing. The gay mafia gets mad that they are not being taken seriously, and make a national story of it.

This is liberalism. You either take us seriously or else. Some “behavior modification” for you.

Pat Forde seems to think he’s been appointed to be God. Most likely he’s been self-appointed to assume such an arrogant, know-it-all and sanctimonious posture.

Maybe he needs to shut-up and let Ole Miss investigate and handle the situation.

Pat Forde spent too many yrs at ESPN

They are football players...not sissies. If HC Freeze punishes his team for acting Hetero...Ole Miss becomes the laughingstock of whole SEC

Not so fast. The administration is so liberal, they would probably kill off the football program over this, if it wouldn't tick off the car-dealer alumni base.

The funny thing is Pat Forde last week was whining that college coaches wouldn't let players wear "All Players Unite" (in reference to concussion - a big lib crusade).

He writes: "But I don't like the way either man has handled the small and utterly benign "APU" statements by players on their teams last Saturday. To me, their reactions seem to exemplify the worst college football coaching tendencies: control for control's sake, a tendency toward groupthink, an aversion to individual expression, and a rigid response to a challenge to authority.

Some students disrupted a play called “The Laramie Project” about the murder of an openly homosexual man. I have no idea of the play’s content other than that, but I can imagine in today’s culture that somewhere in this play, the idea is put forward that homosexuality is a viable alternative lifestyle. If so, then that is a far greater evil than some catcalls from the audience.

Homosexuality is a self-destructive lifestyle that destroys not only those practicing it, but casts out its destructive influence in ever-widening circles. The most stabilizing unit in any society is the intact traditional family with all of its resources. Homosexuality with the help of the government is beating against the door of this castle.

I am not sure if this was the topic but while switching around the radio channels yesterday, I heard an ESPN radio host say that “blacks and Latins....especially in the NCAA.... are playing by cultural rules (written by whites)...” The conversation seemed to take a change of direction at that point and honestly, that drivel is getting nauseating.

The little city of Oxford, MS is as beautiful a Southern town as one will find in the deep South. Glad to see that the football players at Ole Miss are able to think for themselves and see through the degeneracy agenda to reject it. ... Go Rebels, stomp the War Eagle! Lots of homos on the Auburn camp pus.

Sorry but forcing people to watch a play about perverts should be a crime. The players have NOTHING to apologize for. The school does..........

Actually, my understanding is that the football players were forced to attend the play as some sort of freshman diversity training....in which case they should be commended....very few people have courage enough to challenge the agenda of perversion... Go Ole Miss!

Now that’s just plain unkind! Don’t most jocks move up to the executive suite?

I think that if the players were making fun of anything, they were making fun of a play that has turned out to be a lie. The whole Matthew Sheperd story is one big lie.

LOve the comments at Yahoo. About 50-1 ripping the lib writer...

Some of the good ones...


I guess the author thinks that it’s ok for members of the gay community to walk into a Catholic church dressed as nuns and kiss each other during a Sunday service, but its not ok for straight people to voice their displeasure with the gay community during a play. I disagree with both, but what do you expect when one side openly mocks the other with support of the liberal media. The left is going to push too far and the backlash will be severe. The pot is beginning to boil over.


So “Freedom of Speech” is one-sided now? The cast members can go to the football games and yell at the players if they choose. I bet the players will not be defended by this so called writer. Bad taste? Absolutely. Cruel? Sure. I would be all for the team taking some sensitivity training, and next time leave if they are offended. But no one should tell them what THEY should tolerate.


How did this article take this angle? Was the behavior appropriate? NO. Was it unusual? NO. Unfortunately, I have attended many theatre events at our local college; unfortunately, some of those performances have been set aside as “student” nights when many in attendance were only there in order to receive credit for an English or music class. The behavior of many of the students on those nights sound very similar to the behavior of the students at Ole Miss. Was it appropriate? NO Did I search down these students and ask who the teacher was who had them attend and hold that teacher responsible? Or who their coaches were, because many of them appeared to be athletes? NO If I were to hold anyone responsible ,other than these students themselves, who by the way, are now adults, it would be their parents who did not teach their own children appropriate behavior. Was the behavior a result of the theme of the play? I doubt it. I have witnessed this behavior whether it be a comedy, a drama, a musical, a children’s show. The coach is “under fire” because he is a Christian??? What does that have to do with any part of this story? Or really, how did he even become a part of the story? Or finally, why was there even a story? Oh, it’s a problem, and these individuals were wrong, but why is their coach, their school, or anyone else to be responsible for their individual behavior?


The intolerance is from people like the author and members of the so-called LGBT community who thinks they are entitled to special treatment due to their lifestyles. Sorry, I could care lesswhat your orientation is, but when you ram it down my throat I get fed up. You’ve got a right to perform any play you want; others have the right to cast aspersions on the play and your performances. Tough luck if you don’t like it.

I have no idea of the play’s content

It's about a gay man who was murdered by his lover over a drug deal that went bad.

The facts were changed to protect the agenda.

You are forgetting that these are people doing something adverse to nature. What they are doing is an arrogant perversion. It is a choice and it is bad behavior. So why should everybody else cowtow to their abhorant live style? I will never!

How about we instead subject university administrators and journalists who are hostile to the mere subject of Christian persecution to mockery and riducule, and fire those who actually engage in the persecution of Christians.

I find the word “gay” offensive. I am more tolerant of “Deviant homosexual.
These students were mocking the portrayal of a nest of homos killing one of their own in a bitch fight. Can’t make more of it than it was.

Missed this bit earlier, but it is indicative of the University's position:

"Ole Miss dean of students Sparky Reardon said a bias incident response team, which is made up of faculty and staff, would investigate the incident and make any discipline recommendations to the university."

A BIAS INCIDENT RESPONSE TEAM? LOL!

A good message to take from it would be to not get involved in any homosexual activity or relationships and you’ll live a lot longer. Probably not the intended message but a true one.
