Here’s the text of Hugh Freeze’s answers to two questions on Alabama staffer Tyler Siskey, who was a part of Freeze’s staff at Ole Miss last year.
“I don’t know where he typically is. Certainly, I’ll say that Alabama had a wonderful defensive plan for us. I give them a lot of credit for the work they put in in preparing for us, whether it was in the summertime or just in the week. Nick and Kirby are two of the best in the business. Not that they need a lot of help in preparing a game plan, but I’m sure Siskey helped in some way.
“Tyler Siskey’s a good man. I hate that it’s been quite the drama. Did I feel like they had an excellent plan? For whatever reason, I did. I’m sure that Nick prepares just like any of us would. I’m ready to move on to Auburn.”
(Have you or Ole Miss contacted the SEC?)
“I haven’t. I don’t know what he exactly did. I’ll leave that. Our administration is great. Alabama, I’m sure, had great administration too, and I don’t think for one minute that Nick would put himself or his program at risk in doing something that … I don’t want involved in something like that. They beat us. They lined up and beat us, and I’m ready to move on to Auburn.”
