After 14 years on and off as the University of Mississippi athletic director, the Forward Rebels believe the best thing Pete Boone can do for the program is resign.

From 1995 to 1998 and from 2002 to the present, which includes Boone’s terms, the Ole Miss football team has gone 81-84 overall and 39-71 in Southeastern Conference play. Lee Habeeb, Forward Rebels spokesperson, said the blame for the poor play should go directly to the top, not with the coaches or the players.

This past Tuesday night, the University of Mississippi Faculty Senate met to vote in support of the chancellor in condemnation of the Forward Rebels. 

I was the only student present. No reporter from The DM or The Oxford Eagle was there. No one from the Forward Rebels was there to present a case. 

It was “Commissar Jones” demanding a loyalty oath, as one professor saw it.

This is an unprecedented response to an exceptional campaign.

The time for debate is ending. The message is clear. It is time the University of Mississippi advances with the cause of the Forward Rebels.

This outstanding organization was slandered over the last few weeks. Their vision for this university was dismissed and its supporters have been cast in a false light. Fortunately the fear-mongering and vague language from its opponents cannot last forever.

As I have been reading the papers the past few weeks, I’ve noticed something worth lamenting: the death of the Rebel spirit. 

Our country, our state and especially our university defined themselves by their rebels. We were taught to do what had to be done, regardless of whether it was popular, and to respect the same in others. That spirit, I fear, is giving up its last breath.

From the Office of the Chancellor:

Dear Ole Miss Family,

QUESTION: He quoted that would "get real ugly." Do you know what that means?

Over the last year, one might have found themselves calling into question the future of this beloved place we call home, Ole Miss. 

In these times of disappointment, characterized by a group who consistently resolves to hinder forward thinking, we find ourselves at a crossroad, questioning whether or not we can weather this storm.

At the conclusion of this past Ole Miss athletic year, there was an overwhelming feeling of disappointment and anger. With the Rebel fan base rapidly growing frustrated with the administration and wanting some change, a small group of people have taken action to help give the fans a voice.

Enter Forward Rebels, a new organization created by local alumni who are tired of the status quo and want to give other fans a chance to voice their frustrations in an organized manner.
