Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze, who has been tearing up the recruiting trail and turning the Rebels into some sort of respectable football program, may need a lesson on the football history in Oxford.

Freeze tweeted the following photo on Monday with the line, “Oxford, Mississippi, Home Of 3 National Championships.”

Hotty Toddy does indeed have three titles under its belt, however, in order to find those one would have to look all the way back to more than a half century ago. The Rebels won the championship in 1959, 1960 and 1962.

The trophies back then, however, looked drastically different than the BCS trophies in the image below.

@SEC_Logo was quick to point out the mistake, in which Freeze removed this image.

Now, of course, Freeze is spending his day fending off the haters on Twitter.

As far as effort goes, we will just go ahead and give an F.
