Email from Pete Boone to Ole Miss Season Ticket Holders

There has been a lot of talk these past 24 hours or so regarding what will and should happen with our athletics department. In what seems to be a preemptive strike to keep the Rebel fan base from entering a tailspin of panic, Rebel Athletic Director Pete Boone sent this last night at 11:34 PM to season ticket holders and financial contributors to UMAA. (HT: SNIWIJ)

Dear [SEASON TICKET HOLDER],  

The Rebel Family is the most important part of Ole Miss Athletics.  Without your generous support month after month, year after year and generation after generation, Ole Miss would not be what it is today - a destination university for Mississippians as well as the nation.  The richness of tradition and pride that encompasses Ole Miss fans all over the world is unparalleled.   The fullness of the Ole Miss football experience that you deserve and have generously invested in, has not lived up to expectations recently.  Coach Nutt and I met today and discussed the current state of Ole Miss football.  Both of us are extremely disappointed in our performance this year.  We agreed that to be successful, this disappointment must be met head on with solutions for improvement.  We discussed several areas that needed improvement and I support Coach Nutt in his effort to correct those areas.

 

As I have said, Saturday's performance and our running two-season SEC record are unacceptable.  Our commitment to compete at a championship level is as strong as ever and we will succeed!  We need your continued support of the team as Saturday is another SEC weekend and we need you here!

Sincerely,

Pete Boone 

Director of Athletics
