OXFORD, Miss. (AP) Former Nebraska player Trev Alberts made the comment on the air
after Ole Miss lost to LSU 17-14 on Saturday.
Alberts, who grew up on a farm, said in every litter of pigs here is a runt and no matter how much you try to help the runt row, it will still be a runt.
He said Ole Miss will always be a runt.
Rebels coach David Cutcliffe said Monday that his players were ware of the comment.
``It's been pretty popular,'' Cutcliffe said. ``That's a pretty strong statement. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, I guess. That would be my statement in return.''
