Freeze talks spring, Liggins on move to offensive tackle

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze has been pleased with the effort he’s gotten from his players this spring.

That’s often Class A Coachspeak, but Freeze is one to tell you when he’s not pleased with effort. Seems to me I’ve head Happy Hugh more than Unhappy Hugh most of the time in these after-practice visits.

He talks a little bit about the format for the upcoming Grove Bowl and how he feels compelled to make it a “game” and not just a practice. That’s because of the televisions attention given to spring football these days.

For all intents and purposes today was the last real practice of the spring.

Today was also the first day that some of last year’s first-year players were allowed to take part in interviews.

We heard from Jeremy Liggins, A.J. and C.J. Moore, Markell Pack and Damore’ea Stringfellow this evening.

Here’s what Liggins had to say about his move from quarterback-tight end to offensive tackle. There may be a slash coming down the line for Liggins. He’s invested at tackle, but he could still line up at tight end, depending on injuries, or at quarterback, depending on the Rebels’ success in short yardage.

For now, we’ll just call Liggins a tackle with no slash. Here he is:
