DUE TO FLU CONCERNS, “MEET THE REBELS DAY” AT OLE MISS TO BE CANCELLED THIS YEAR


OXFORD, Miss. – In an abundance of
caution regarding the potential exposure of
various flu strains, Ole Miss officials announced
Tuesday that Saturday’s planned “Meet the Rebels
Day” has been cancelled for this year.

 

  “After consultation with our team
physicians and Coach Houston Nutt, we felt it was
in the best interest of our football team to
cancel this year’s ‘Meet the Rebels Day’,” said
Ole Miss Athletics Director Pete Boone.

 “While we may be over cautious regarding
the flu, our season opener is less than three
weeks away and we can’t take any chances,” Nutt
said.  “We certainly regret not being able to
interact with our fans at this time.”
