do not know what to say about the Tupelo game," added the 6' 1", 295
pounder who is expected to play offensive center on the next level, Quinn Sanford
"It was a good game. The best one we have played this year. Tupelo did not
back down. They came to play. Their Dandy Dozen back (Ken Davis
) was running like
a bull out there. They played hard. Personally, I did alright. I had around 7
But it was the off the field issue that caught Quinn by
"Man, it was awful when I heard about Coach Orgeron (getting
fired). I thought he was going to be the coach of the future. I guess Ole Miss
has other plans. I did not want to believe it though."
Has Quinn heard
from Ole Miss since the coaching change yesterday?
"No, not yet. I
heard from Coach Hughes but I was not around the phone. It hurt Bud Barksdale
Tig (Darius Barksdale
), and Terrance Pope
because we had all planned to go to
Ole Miss. I guess it could change the boy's minds about going to Ole Miss because
I sure planned on going there. I just do not know yet. We just want to see who
they hire and what is going to go on before we make any decisions."
does Ole Miss need to do to make the South Panola trio feel comfortable again
about their commitments to Ole Miss?
"They need to get another head
coach that is similar to Coach Orgeron, you know, someone who has a lot of enthusiasm.
I want them to keep as many as their assistants as they can because we are comfortable
with them, especially Coach Kehoe. I want him to coach me on the offensive line.
And I know Tig, Bud, and Terrance are really close to coaches (Tony) Hughes and
(Hugh) Freeze. I do not know. We are just waiting to see what happens from here.
We have always wanted to be at Ole Miss, so I hope they hire someone that we are
comfortable with."Watch Video
