Ole Miss Fires Orgeron After 4 Years

There are 4 comments on the The Associated Press story from Nov 24, 2007, titled Ole Miss Fires Orgeron After 4 Years . In it, The Associated Press reports that:

“I understand that was a bad call and that it probably cost us the game. I understand that and I take the blame.”

Ed Orgeron was fired as Mississippi's coach Saturday, a day after the Rebels blew a game against their big rival to finish the season 3-9 and go winless in the conference for the first time since 1982.

His departure ends a tumultuous three years in Oxford that included plenty of bravado but few wins. The ouster came after Friday's difficult loss in which a fourth-and-1 call by Orgeron started a 17-point rally by Mississippi State that ended in a 17-14 defeat after it appeared Ole Miss had won.

Ole Miss can not play in the SEC football or basketball. Ole Miss, Miss. St. and Vandy should play in another league maybe the WAC where they would be more competitive.

I guess if Nutt wins with Ed Orgeron's recruiting classes of the past three years everyone will think Boone is a genius. They should have given Coach "O" 1 more year like Miss. State did with Coach Crooms. Orgeron will re-surface next year either as a def. line coach in the NFL or as a defensive coord. with a big name college before he gets another chance as a head cosch.

Rrb, put down that bottle of booze and wake up and smell the coffee. Ole Miss has won 6 SEC championships and 3 national titles in the past and they will win again, of that I'm certain.
