Watch Hugh Freeze's locker room message after loss to Florida

Posted by: Chris Vannini on Thursday October 08, 2015

Hugh Freeze’s locker room speech after a 38-10 loss to Florida was all about responding.

In the latest episode of The Season, Freeze even referenced Alabama’s win at Georgia from earlier in the day.

“We got outplayed, we got outcoached, we didn’t take care of the ball, we didn’t get any turnovers, it was an awful night all the way around,” Freeze told his team. “Now, you still control the West. Do you know that? I want you to hear me. You think you’re the first team to ever be ranked high and get beat? No. It just happened. We beat Bama the other day, they go to Georgia and respond.

“It’s all on us, but we’ve got to go to work and get better. We’ve got two out-of-conference games to sharpen our soul up before it gets back into the grind. I love you. We still have everything right there. But you have to respond to this the right way.”

The 4-1 Rebels host New Mexico State this Saturday and travel to Memphis next week, followed by five straight SEC West games to finish the year.
