Hugh Freeze’s Twitter account is in the news for a second week in a row; this time on happier terms.
Friday morning he tweeted that it is a “real honor” to be one of the leading vote-getters in a new ESPN.com poll that asked college coaches which of their peers they would most like their children to play for.
Freeze tied for fourth with Northwestern’s Pat Fitzgerald, behind Michigan State’s Mark Dantonio, Stanford’s David Shaw and Oklahoma’s Bob Stoops.

Last week, he made headlines after tweeting a merciful response to an Alabama radio host that had called Freeze a “snake-oil salesman.”
According to Freeze, he didn’t realize he’d been called that term, and the tweet was deleted later that night.
“I probably get called things like that everyday,” he told SEC Country. “Certainly I’m far from perfect, but I do believe I have the right core values, and I am a man of faith. And the ones who really know me, know that. I probably can’t do a whole lot to change that perception with those that will never get to know me. So you kind of come to peace with that.”
