Ole Miss Not Happy With Negative Comment By Trev Alberts

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.''
