I have been sitting back and just listening to rumblings and accusations for the past few weeks. Now that NSD has come and gone I feel I can no longer hold my tounge.
A little background to begin... I am from around Jackson, MS have grown up a as a Rebel fan all of my life. The main reason is that my dad played there from 82-85 and was a GA in 86. I know most of you won't care but just setting the scene.
What the Rebel staff has been able to do has been very exciting and hard to believe at times even for me at the start of the year. But if you take a look at the class you can begin to see connections that definately helped. Many people have been up in arms about us getting Tony Conner, RNK, Tunsil and treadwell. Conner is from Batesville and played at South Panola which is a pipeline school for Ole Miss. RNK has a brother on the team who is good in his own right, so that was a foot in the door there. Treadwell's best friend is on our team so again foot in the door. Lastly, our staff has been on Tunsil for a while now, it wasnt as though we just came out of nowhere and started recruiting him.
What Ole miss has to offer is first and formost, SEC football. Plain and simple we have depth problems so there is early playing time. The city and campus is just beautiful and welcoming. Other than rings and a huge stadium, Ole Miss offers everything that any SEC school does (excluding Alabama, Florida, and LSU).
So to wrap all of this rambling up, Hugh Freeze and the rest of the staff worked their asses off to do what they have done this year. I doubt we will continue to recruit like this in the future bc of all tue fortunate situations and connections we had this year. I understand that you will say it doesn't matter or you dont care that Ole miss did this bc we will continue to have 6 or 7 win years... thats fine, keep that state of mind and I hope your team does that too and just overlooks us. We will see what the future has for this class and Ole miss' program. Would love to hear the rebutle to this post.

Yeah, they just recruit hard.
Get used to the accusations. If you recruit well, you will be accused of cheating. That goes for everyone.
Furthermore, OM is cheating just like everyone else.
I never said Ole Miss isn't doing what wveryone else is doing just setting the facts out there.
This won't end well for the op.

Ya'll cheatin'. We cheatin' too but we have 3 natty's so it's all good.
perfected cheating ^^^...
+1 to ya bro.
I couldn't care less if you're cheating or not.
Ill leave that for the haters who also cheat
TL;DR but I'm pretty sure this belonged on your home board anyway.
God, give me patience today. If given strength I may beat someone to death.
Ole Miss has 1 division title (shared) in its history and has 0 SEC CCG appearances. No other SEC team with such a limited history recruits at the level Ole Miss just did. That's my rebuttal.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
Says the guy with the "free shoes" handle. Free Shoes U
What's better than free shoes?
Answer me that.
What Ole Miss is offering: free rich white girls with very disappointed fathers.
Free shoes with cash stuffed in them instead of that stupid tissue paper.
In sports, where there is smoke, there is fire.
Whole lot of smoke coming out of Ole Miss.

? I got screwed at Foot Locker. Dicks.
If you want to bring up history we can do that. In Ole Miss' football history we have 3 national championships, 6 SEC championships, 1 divisional championship (as you mentioned). We are currently 12th in history of bowl game wins and tied for 1st win percentage. Ole Miss has a rich tradition of football history, which is what Coach Freeze is trying to bring back by changing the culture of the program and recruiting strategy. The staff offered an absurd amount of offers at the beginning of the year to anyone and everyone. They have no problem going after top recruits "just because we are Ole Miss". That is what he has said from day one and proved yesterday.
All of those championships were before Ark and SCar joined in '92. Other than Nutt's success a few years ago y'all haven't done too much.
Well you sound convinced. That's all that matters.
You say that like its a bad thing.
Downvote me all you want to Mr. Rebel. You still have a lower winning percentage than Arkansas and trail in the all-time series. Good day.
No. You said name something better than free shoes. I did.
They are burning the leftover 100s they didn't use.
Good point bro.
I'd go shoeless for that. I'm not proud.
First of all, Nutt's success at ole miss was strictly bc of the talent on the team brought in by Coach Ogeron. Before that we had Cutcliff that was 44-29 from 99-04. I get the argument about the lack of success to an extent but we haven't been 2-10 every year since the 60s. We have had moderate success.
