Hugh Freeze (Strangely) Compares Mike Gundy to High School Coach

first_imgI realize he meant it as a compliment, but it still came off weird. On Thursday, Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze compared his Sugar Bowl counterpart to … a high school coach?“I’m not sure of Mike’s (Gundy) total background but he reminds me of a great high school coach in regards to this guy can find ways to do great things with what he has,” said Freeze.“And you know, the way he has smoke and mirrored his way to 10 games in regards to the run game, has been very impressive, and the way they create extra gaps, the way they are always creating new things with motion. It creates problems for you defense and he has done a nice job with him. Hats off to him. I have always admired the job ‑‑ I don’t know Mike well ‑‑ but the job they have done in being consistent, consistent over a course in time in this profession is very difficult to do and they managed to do that and I think this is just another example of how he took an area that many considered to be not a strength of the team and is doing well with it.”All of these things are true of course. Nobody is arguing that they aren’t true. It just seems like a backhanded way of saying them. Especially if you’re the head coach of the other team.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

D Editor Ill be Writing and Illustrating Every Story in Our February

first_imgInteresting quote in the story about layoffs at Dallas’ D magazine, via executive editor Tim Rogers:”What that means is I’ll be writing and illustrating every story in our February issue, for starters.”Full text of Rogers’ e-mail to FOLIO::Here’s what I can tell you about the cuts: We’ve experienced explosive growth since I came to work for the company seven years ago. We assembled the best team of media professionals in North Texas — if not the Milky Way. Every one of the 14 people we let go from the magazine division will be missed. It was a painful process.The reason for the cuts? Ad revenue for us is down. More important, our projections indicate 2009 will be a lean year. We did what was necessary to keep our company profitable and healthy.As for D Magazine proper, we did not lose a single edit or art person — though we all took pay cuts. And we will be working with reduced freelance budgets. What that means is I’ll be writing and illustrating every story in our February issue, for starters. Expect a magazine focused on every detail of my personal life. Should be a newsstand killer.—Tim RogersExecutive EditorD Magazine4311 Oak Lawn, Suite 100Dallas, TX 75219[PHONE REDACTED]www.dmagazine.comlast_img read more
