I don't really know what to say about this, seems kinda meh like the coaching hire but he seems like a young(ish) energetic guy.

Honestly, I've never heard of this guy. I decided months ago that I'd be better off not keeping up with the hiring process of anything related to Ole Miss.

THANK GOD. This is awesome. It really is.

We avoided Walker Jones and the other GOB's. And this guy has been all over the country with other big programs and has no ties to Ole Miss. Young and energetic as well. This is great news, trust me.

No ties to Ole Miss is probably the best thing for ya'll. It's really alot like what we did when we hired Byrne. Hopefully ya'll have similar (but not too good) of results.

Sounds like the AD wasn't going in a direction that the Board and Alumni wanted. So bring in the outsider with no ties to the University and who doesn't have a problem cutting loose coaches that don't perform. Sounds like an energetic "Lets git her done" type of guy that probably has a list of needed impovements in policy, personel and facilties and will probably be out fund raising for an "Improved Ole Miss"

looks like yall got the youth part down which is a must in this quickly evolving landscape. i see a possible power struggle for the old-era archie guys and the new modern thinkers....gear up, but it looks like a good hire.

FCN's thoughts:

1. The New AD may have been named, but expect Boone to hang around until April at least. (retirement money goes up in April)

2. As J-Dawg mentioned, having a young AD is always great.

3. As BBN4L mentioned, Bjork has no ties to the GOB. Should be good news for Ole Miss fans.

4. Being as how Boone will probably hang around until April, who will handle the Basketball coaching hiring/contract renegotiation? Bjork or Boone?

5. Bjorks first order of business should be repealing these gay-arse rules about beer like at Swayze/Grove. I had my beer in a huggie for 2 innings tonigh, then some d-bag rent-a--cop comes along and says find a cup for it. I'm used to it (like every year), but it's :lanekiffin: ing bs. Just let us have the :lanekiffin: ing beer in a huggie or a can. JFC. I'm 24 damn years old, I have no need to hide my damn beer.

6. I hope there is a thorough purging of the Boone-era rent-a-cops. Never in my life have I seen such worthless and d-bag individuals.

7. lulz at his last name.
