"Because Bama now sucks just like FSU used to suck when we were getting dominated by OU. Does it make sense now?"- Sliger (FSU Fan)
Why is there a lack of offers for this kid?
What is beginning?
Ole Miss finishing probably better than anyone in the country. They are about to kill it this month.
I do agree they are going to have a heck of a class. Hopefully they won't steal Lawson.
Right after the Townsend hire, this is the 2nd biggest story in Mississippi today....
LOL @ this
Anyway, we like the attention we are getting. However, I think its safe to say that Bama and a few other schools will be ahead of us even if we do in fact run the table with most of the guys that are expected to commit. Give a listen to the link below, especially the last 15 sec. You tell me theres not a plan in place with these kids and Ive got a bridge to sell ya.
Going to be a lot of talent up there in a couple years that won't have won many games.
Once Ole Miss is mediocre on the field next year, they won't have much momentum and it will be back to business as usual.
Were winning 9 games next year.
take a look, the scheule is promising.

I count no more than 8... and that is being optimistic.
with a 1-6 start.....But could finish strong.
9 games is pretty mediocre. I understand 9 games for Rebs may seem like an accomplishment, but for the elite teams of the nation 9 games is below expectations, and for good programs 9 is the baseline you want for wins.
Also lol at 9 games.
Going to get smoked by Bama, A&M, LSU.
@Texas is a toss up at best.
@Vandy, @MSU, @Auburn are all losable games
No way you win 9.
We’ll see. With Depth we would have won Vandy, A&M and LSU this year.
We had Vandy and A&M beat until the final minute in each game. Each game was also decided by blown calls that the SEC later apologized for. We just ran out of steam in the 4th due to lack of depth and scholarship athletes (played against LSU with 59 players, and only 40 were SEC caliber talent).
You also have to realize that we were 2-10 at this time last year. Saben was 7-6 his first year at Bama too, just saying. Anyway, folks paying a attention in the SEC know that Freeze is the real deal and we are on the rise, hence a BAMA fan creating this thread.
But you didn't and you lost.
Freeze is getting the typical early bump in recruiting we will see if it continues. He had a good first season but pronouncing he is the real deal after 1 season is pretty jokes.
I'll sig bet you on the amount of games you win. Not a chance in hell you win 9.
Nine is pushing it.
Don't you see Mrider, they are only team who will improve.....The others have no chance, this bear team went 6-6 this year after a solid 2 years without winning a conference game, no rational reason not to believe they won't be competing for the west....Vandy, aTm, LSU, clearly won't build any depth or develop talent over this spring, nor will texas, Bama, State Arkansas or Auburn. Freeze has captured something that no other coach in football history has done, he has figured out how to get better while everybody else stays the same!!!
I see Ole Miss at 7-10 wins. The early Vandy game is huge. Vandy is a much improved program and an 9 win team this season. Like Ole Miss, they continue to improve depth and need this game. If they win, they are 2-0 going into Texas. I think they lose to UT, but you never know. UT has been on such a decline as of late anything can happen. Bad QB play can always get you beat so UT is on deck. Ole MIss has a chance here, but I see them at losing and going to 2-1.
Then a loss to Bama, a win over AU, and a loss to A&M.
So going into LSU they are 3-3 with the hardest part of their schedule behind them. This game will set the tone for the season like the Vandy game did earlier. They will need to take the next step. Ole Miss should have beaten LSU this year. They had it, but messed it up late. Now this year, LSU loses damn near everyone, Ole Miss returns everyone, Ole Miss adds an amazing class, and they get them at home instead of on the road. This game is VERY winnable and I think they get it done, finally.
So now they are 4-3 and then beat Idaho, Arkansas, Troy, and Missouri. Now, this is the SEC so there is a decent chance they drop a game like Arkansas randomly, but I don't think they will. That puts them at 8-3 heading into the Egg Bowl against MSU.
Rivalry games are always tough to predict (especially almost a year ahead of time), but Ole Miss will have more talent and should win the game. That makes them 9-3 heading into a bowl game with a chance at 10 wins. That's best case, and they could lose a game here or there, but 8-10 wins next season would be huge. Freeze will sign another top class, these big recruits will have another year in the system under their belt, and they will be heading into the 2014 season with even higher expectations.
It's hard to argue Ole Miss is not one of the hotter teams in the SEC and country. If they can keep Freeze and upgrade their facilities, they have a chance to get their foot into the upper tier every 2-3 years or so.
I recall Michigan fans saying the exact thing about Hoke...
The good news is, Freeze won't be at Ole Miss longer than 4-5 years. He'll move on to a better program because frankly he's a better coach.

Haters gonna hate.
The Future Is Bright! Hotty Toddy
Not sure I see 9 games. You have three toss up games at the beginning of the year. Vanderbilt, Texas, and auburn. Vanderbilt beat you last year and Franklin is in year three. Texas is an enigma wrapped in a riddle. Auburn is the interesting one. Obviously I'm not an auburn fan but they fall in a sweet spot on your schedule. Your tempo, which is really your best advantage, shouldn't be a preparation issue for auburn. Of course auburn has a well known list of issues. That is why I mark it in toss up category. Definitive dogs in Texas A&M, Alabama and LSU games. I believe Missouri should be improved but you should handle them. The bullpups will be preparing for you since yesterday plus it is in Starkville, so I see that as a toss up.
Four toss ups + three likely losses. Lose all of them and your sitting at five wins. If you split toss ups, you get seven. You have to sweep to get nine. Got to believe seven is the reasonable projection.
Being good and Michigan and being good at Ole Miss are two different things.
Thats cool, let me know.
9 wins is with the bowl?
Oh yeah it has!! Next Thursday we get Treadwell
