I think this is a big loss

I think this is a big loss for Mississippi. All the recruits seem to love the guy.

Sorry you have an axe to

Sorry you have an axe to grind with BA. However, Coach Rankin, I appreciate your kind remarks about Kent Austin.

I normally have very few

I normally have very few positive comments about the Carlton Flatt school. In this case I am very proud of what Kent Austin has achieved. Cornell is not the SEC but Kent Austin has just gotten one of the best jobs in the coaching profession.

There is nothing like coaching boys who have a value system consistent with honor,integrity and very few tattoos.
