  • Houston Nutt takes a big swing at Hugh Freeze in lawsuit against Ole Miss

    Quote
    "Coach Freeze had knowingly lied to the journalists and recruiting prospects by saying that the NCAA's investigation had little, if anything, to do with him or his coaching staff and was instead focused on alleged rules violations by Coach Nutt's staff," the complaint says, per Yahoo! Sports. "Coach Freeze falsely stated that most, if not all, of the NCAA's allegations involved 'Houston Nutt' and his staff. At the time Coach Freeze made these statements, he was fully aware that they were patently false, yet he continued to make such statements, severely damaging Coach Nutt's reputation. ... The protection of Coach Freeze became the University's Number One priority in dealing with the NCAA investigation."

    From Lee Tyner, General Counsel of UM: "We have not yet been served with the lawsuit, but we are aware it has been filed. We were provided a copy a short time ago. We will carefully review Coach Nutt's claims and respond in due course."

    One of Nutt's freshmen told him I was Journalist No. 3. He did not read my stuff.

    Nutt, who coached at Ole Miss from 2008-11 and currently is a CBS television analyst, signed a separation agreement in November 2011 that he alleges the school violated.

    “Coach Freeze had knowingly lied to the journalists and recruiting prospects by saying that the NCAA’s investigation had little, if anything, to do with him or his coaching staff and was instead focused on alleged rules violations by Coach Nutt’s staff,” the complaint says. “Coach Freeze falsely stated that most, if not all, of the NCAA’s allegations involved ‘Houston Nutt’ and his staff. At the time Coach Freeze made these statements, he was fully aware that they were patently false, yet he continued to make such statements, severely damaging Coach Nutt’s reputation. … The protection of Coach Freeze became the University’s Number One priority in dealing with the NCAA investigation.”

    “Standing on their own, each false, misleading and defamatory statement made by Coach Freeze and other members of the Athletics Department from 2014 through 2017 harmed Coach Nutt’s reputation as a football coach and is a clear and deliberate breach of Section 8 of the Severance Agreement,” the complaint says. “Collectively, the Defendants’ deliberately false and misleading statements also constitute a blatant violation of SEC Bylaw 10.2 (prohibiting recruiting using false statements or false pretenses), and an equally egregious violation of the Ole Miss Code of Ethics …”

    SEC spokesman Herb Vincent declined comment on the suit on Wednesday.

    It's as if Houston Nutt has conveniently forgotten he was the head coach when all the academic stuff listed in the NOA went down.

    He leaves a program in behavior-academic-talent shambles, gets $6 mil for two years of nothing and wants more? Blank stare. Sweet insanity.

    This suit will never make it to court.

    A lawsuit opens the door for the NCAA to get info that they previously couldn't...  8)

    See what it did to USC a few years back?

    Loser: Hugh Freeze

    We jump from lighthearted fun to … Ole Miss. Freeze, also a loser on Wednesday because of Houston Nutt’s interestingly-timed lawsuit, spent more than half of his appearance at the podium discussing everything but the NCAA scandal that has enveloped his program for many months.

    As chronicled by just about every reporter in attendance, Freeze made his opening statement last a whopping 17 minutes. He addressed Nutt’s allegations by insisting he couldn’t comment upon them, and generally giving the same half-apologetic answers he’s given throughout the whole ordeal.

    A couple of the Rebels coach’s answers were particularly laughable. Asked about how he prevents corruption in his football program, Freeze responded in part that he was “open to suggestions by our chancellor and our A.D. and our compliance people, our legal team always as to how we can do that.”

    Then there was this gem: “Integrity is not always doing the right thing, but it is when something is done that is not right, you acknowledge it, you own it, and you move on from it,” said Freeze, who hasn’t exactly owned it, but who certainly would like to move on from it.

    This is, as my colleague Alex Smith so aptly put it, a doomed PR campaign for Freeze, who can merely point to his upcoming date with the Committee on Infractions, cross his fingers and pray the NCAA doesn’t suspend him —

    If Ole Miss had just apologized to Houston Nutt, I don’t think any of this happens.
