Here are his comments on the three questions he took after practice regarding the post-election gathering:
Q: What would you say about the things that happened last night?
“I’m disappointed in two things. In the thirty or so kids that gathered to do whatever they were going to call that, which by the way happened at a lot of places across the nation and not just at Ole Miss. I’m very disappointed in our local media that took upon themselves to run with it and make it into something it wasn’t. We are our own worst enemy when we do those kind of things. It’s not, in my opinion, proper journalism, and that’s frustrating. Obviously when the social media hit those other two or three hundred came to watch. Again I don’t condone any of those actions, and whoever the president of the United States is is who I’m going to give honor too. We have to press on, just like a football team, to make this a better place. That’s the attitude of so many Rebels, and hopefully the truth will be known and too much damage wasn’t done by the false reporting that happened.”
Q: Did you have to do any damage control with any recruits?
“Not really we just put out the truth. Normally the truth is good enough for most people.”
Q: Overall have you tried to be proactive with that kind of stuff?
“Certainly when I woke up and found out the reports were over-exaggerated by some of our own people. I got with our coaches and found out the truth, and we got that out.”
