There's a fan group in Mississippi called Forward Rebels expressing their displeasure with Ole Miss athletic director Pete Boone. Jerrell Powe, a former Ole Miss Rebel and current Kansas City Chief, recently gave them some support with a letter speaking out against Boone.

In the letter, a full copy of which can be seen here, Powe has this to say about Ole Miss's current AD:

Throughout my two and a half year fight to go to college, one voice of encouragement was noticeably missing, and that voice was Athletic Director Pete Boone's. While you would think that Mr. Boone would want me to go to school, and even more to play for Ole Miss, he was, if anything, discouraging to me during my struggle. Although many are familiar with Mr. Boone's desire to keep me out, I have held it back for a while.

Yikes.

I'm glad KC is on a three-game winning streak and not going through something like this.
