ESPN: Freeze made multiple calls to escort services

It keeps getting worse.  ESPN reported yesterday:


A preliminary review of Freeze's phone records, obtained by ESPN through an open records request, revealed he dialed at least 12 numbers that are associated with online advertisements for female escorts. The calls took place over a 33-month period beginning in April 2014 and usually lasted two minutes or less...

Universities and their closely associated sports nonprofits operate to accomplish activities so removed from education. The laundering of many millions of dollars that should go towards education is unaccounted for. No wonder when Hugh Freeze got caught with the escort calls by a third party the university had to fire him to cover up its lack of any oversight.

3:19pm....any idea how much cash is generated for the university by football? how can they mis-spend money that wouldnt exist if the program didnt exist and wasnt at the level to create the massive surplus of funds the university has from the very thing you say they shouldnt spend on? your logic is not sound.

Anonymous said...

3:19, these millions of dollars that you claim are supposed to go for education but are laundered by these non-profit associated groups - what is it that makes them supposed to go for education as you claim? If they are "donations" made voluntarily by individuals, groups, or businesses, and are voluntarily given to support the sports programs of these universities, how in the hell can you claim with a straight face that the universities are 'laundering' this money; or that it was intended for 'education' and is being misused?

I can agree with the premise that folks that are giving these millions of dollars to the associations might have their priorities misplaced. But that was their choice when they GAVE THEIR money away.

The other dollars that are being spent by the universities - those dollars that are made from tv rights, ticket sales, or whatever - came from the sports programs and are being spent on the sports programs. Again, where the hell is the laundering that you so casually accuse these folks of doing?

Start the countdown to the Ole Miss fans asking how this can still be news.

It's news because your university won't follow the law and turn over the un-redacted cell records, let the chips fall where they may, recover and move on. 100% on university administration and mishandling by the school attorneys. It won't die because UM insists on being dragged, kicking and screaming like a 2yr old pitching a fit, instead of someone, anyone, stepping up and taking a little responsibility, putting on a little humility and getting this over with! So can actually blame it on your big money alums who are directing this freak show.

I LITERALLY <---(I know what that means), LITERALLY (not figuratively - remember I know what literally means) don't believe that Ole Miss' worst enemy could have concocted worse sabotage than the school leadership has inflicted upon itself. Now, absolutely no matter how bad it gets, everyone will assume that it is just the tip of the iceberg compared to what was able to be covered up by Ole Miss.

Look awaaaaay, look awaaaaaaay...

Ole Miss better hope those hookers were for the ball coach and not the players. It would be a real scandal if state money paid for prostitues for 17 year olds.

I am waiting for a court of law to settle this matter and make a legal ruling as to who really has to pay for all this mess. Yep, Freeze got his but this is just getting started.

Drip, drip, drip, drip, drip goes the Chinese water torture of the black bear landsharts. Eventually those national media sleuths will find the hooker who confirms she serviced recruits. And who confirms she was paid through an intermediary who may be contacted via a phone number on a certain listing produced to Mars, et al. It's coming. Count on it.

Bjork and Ole Miss Administration failed to perform its own due diligence investigation after first notice of allegations. Ole Miss should have cooperated with NCAA. Maybe they would have avoided second NOA and more severe infraction charges.Bjork has to go.

This whole death spiral of a program/school will become a case study on what not to do when caught being chronic cheaters.

The bears will forever be known as the dirtiest program in football, including their self righteous, bogus whore monger of a coach. He will go to a sex addiction clinic, cry a lot and beg forgiveness while endlessly quoting the Bible. Seen this before.

They blame everyone but themselves. Rotten to the core.

So nice to see a university and an athletic program so obsessed with its image that it was willing to erase much of its heritage now have that image sullied beyond redemption.

If Louis Winthorpe can turn a hooker's life around, maybe Hugh was giving his testimony to the paid talent…in hopes of doing the same

The story I am interested in is how UM can allow game-day unregulated open containers and consumption of hard liquor, like some by juveniles, on state-owned property. I'll bet the WSJ reporter would be intrigued by that question.

1013 - ok. We get it. You have posted your same prohibitionist rant multiple times now, despite the fact that it is not related to any of the different posts where you have made it.

Alcohol on the campus is not illegal. And only in some folks narrow minds is it immoral. Attend a game among D1 teams at the Superdome and you can not only BUY beer but also the mixed drink of your choice.

How about holding on to your Freeze-type salvation messaging until KF decides to post something where it will be relevant and use your keypad for a new thought next time you mix up some grape Koolaid.

10:13: Man, what a knucklehead. Alcohol sales at the Superdome are regulated by the State Alcoholic Beverage Control Board and sold by vendors licensed by them. Game-day alcohol consumption on the Ole Miss campus is not regulated by anyone and there is obvious consumption by underage individuals. You can absolutely bet that is against the law.

Y'all can throw crap all day long at one another... the real issue is judges have been bought off! No one gets it do they? Judicial system in Mississippi is corrupted

It's a shame Freeze wasn't a US Senator. This wouldn't be such a big deal under those circumstances.

Malouf said...

10:13 - If there is no problem with alcohol openly consumed on the UM campus, then you shouldn't be worried about any investigation of the practice.

Anonymous said...

Here is a thought. The university attorney has repeatedly stated that the calls released were of business use, and of a non personal nature. He further goes on to say that all personal calls would be redacted.

With that in mind, isn't it very likely that these calls to escort services were made for recruiting purposes? Why else would they be considered "business calls"?

Anonymous said...

10:18; it is reguflated and underage drinking is not allowed. Anyone who has been to a game day and seen UPD dumping coolers knows that. Even if what you say were true, underage drinking and consumption at football games is hardly unique to Ole Miss. This is one of those things that shouldn't have to be explained.

It's only hookers. Thank God. I was afraid he had a Confederate flag on a stick stashed in his office somewhere and could have put someone's eye out.

@10:18 - Underage drinking happens on every campus in America. And I do mean "Every". So save your breathe and our time regarding underage drinking. Ole Miss does not better or worse at policing this activity. As far as "regulated" WTH are you talking about. You think the convenience store clerk or bartender has some sort of special certificate or degree that allows them to serve alcohol? ALL of the liquor you speak of was purchased somewhere and therefore taxed and regulated. We are not talking about moonshine and stills in the grove. Next....

Open containers in Mississippi are illegal except where specifically allowed by law.

It's kinda funny that ANY post on this board that mentions Ole Miss or Miss State brings out the same comments from the same people.....alcohol, cheating, symbolism, plantations, classism, hunting camps, game day attire....doesn't matter what the original post was about.

Totally worth it

Anonymous said...

Beau James, walk past a UPD officer with an open beer can and watch it disappear. There's a reason everyone at State and Ole Miss games drinks out of Solo cups. Due to the weird county laws, beer is illegal in the Grove, but liquor is okay. Leave anything sitting out and the cops will dump it.

Boy Howdy said...

I can see where this is going.....er'body drinks so it must have been Coach Hugh Freeze was drinking when he called the escort services. Once again the Rebel Faithful are spinning the story cause "er'body does it!"

Less government, please said...

Oh, look. The commies are at it again. I'm no Ole Miss fan nor do I even try to understand the alchohol laws in every city/town or county. Do NOT even try to make it harder to get a drink in the landmass between Alabama and Louisiana. The voters are younger and the times have changed. Go ahead and give EVERYONE a reason to have a referendum on those alchohol laws our state has concocted. It won't turn out in your favor.

Let's address theories as to what Freeze's psychological problems are. The rest of this is going nowhere and has been beat to death. Why was the man pretending to be a pastor while dealing with whores? What causes one to do that?

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
