Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze made the rounds at the Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover, Ala., to close out SEC Media Days.

He made it count.

The first-year coach of the Ole Miss Rebels knows the reputation that the program has and is on a mission to change that perception—particularly in the mind of South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier.

Spurrier took at shot at Ole Miss on Day 1, saying that he'd like to schedule Ole Miss this season rather than LSU because it would give his team an easier road to the Georgia Dome.

Freeze didn't like it.

"We do play them in 2013," Freeze said. "I will circle that one and hopefully change his perspective of Ole Miss football."

Shot fired, and shot returned.

Freeze is confident in his offense and his program. That confidence may be a bit premature, but if he's going to turn around the seemingly dormant Ole Miss football program, it's certainly a good start.

I doubt it happens in 2013, though.
