Liggins Seems Like an OK Dude

I still haven't figured my way around this new layout so somebody might have already posted about this, but this article has me feeling pretty good about Jeremy Liggins. I'd take him back regardless, it's just nice to think he might not be a total jerk. Here are some quotes:

On committing to LSU on the Square:

"I just want to apologize for all of that. I hope everyone can forgive me. I've always loved Ole Miss and just got caught up in the moment. I knew right after I signed with LSU that it was a mistake, but I didn't know what to do. I didn't even know where I was going to announce when they got me to commit to make my announcement on the Square. I felt like I would be letting them down by backing out of it but that's what I should have done. It was a mistake. Hopefully I can make up for it when I help Ole Miss go down to Baton Rouge and leave there with a win."

On playing a position other than quarterback:

"They're recruiting me as an athlete. I don't care where I play, really. They can put me on the defensive line, tight end, quarterback, even offensive line. I really don't care. I just want to help Coach Freeze win a championship. He's had my back the whole time during this, and I'm just going to go in there and give it my all. I also want to win it for the Ole Miss fans. They deserve it. They've been through so much through the years, and I want to be a part of the team that brings them in a ring. That's all I care about, really."

And it doesn't look like Ole Miss is a last resort either:

"LSU wants me to come back. Coach Miles said he wants me back in January but I'm going to Ole Miss. Coach Saban (at Alabama) also wants me to sign with them in December but I told him I'm going to Ole Miss. They said they were going to keep recruiting me until I signed, but nothing is going to change my mind. Coach Freeze is the only one that stayed with me through thick and thin and I'm going to give him everything I got. I just can't wait to put on that Red and Blue. It's a lifelong dream of mine."

Here's hoping he's learned something and can contribute to the success of our 2014 Rebels.
