Methinks Freeze doth protest too much.

Touchy, touchy.

I got news for you, Hugh.  It ain’t the players people are insulting… it’s the coaches.

And I’m sure your compliance department appreciates the shout-out.

    What’s this about?

    • Jim

      I assume it is about people wondering how he is on the verge of landing the top 3 recruits in the nation

    • Russ, Tunsil’s high school coach basically said “Ole Miss is cheating” in an article at ESPN this afternoon. He did not directly say “ole miss is cheating”. He first talked about how their class was amazing but that there were a lot of questions as to how this was happening. He ackowledged they were a young staff and must be “great recruiters”, but basically said there were still questions

      Then he went on to say that “if someone is going to cheat, you can’t really trust them. They won’t have your best interests in hand. I told him [Tunsil] that with Georgia that wouldn’t be an issue”. His comments were pretty interesting.

    that said, it is pretty amazing that a team that sucked last year is getting these high profile guys in this class. It isnt like Ole Miss is about to be knocking on the door to the SEC West…

    It’s because they changed their mascot to the Black Bears.

    About a month ago, a big time WR from Illinois (Treadwell?) who’d never even visited the Ole Miss campus committed to them, he then had his official visit last weekend and posted a tweet flashing a wad of $100 bills. The tweet was quickly removed. However, has to make you wonder….

    I don’t know. UNC’s chief recruiter had a slush fund provided by an NFL agent and a slew of no-show classes. Lost a few schollies and a bowl game. Miami broke every rule in the book, but now it looks like the NCAA is going to let them go on a technicality.

    I think the message is clear: cheat your butts off.

    SAdly the NCAA will not even give the allogations a whiff. They are too busy with internal problems to investigate anyone right now so have at it boys.

      I agree. Given the Miami situation, if ever there was a time to push the envelope, this is it.

      Except at UGA, as we have a double agent in the house. One who has stated many times his intention to further “balance” athletics with academics and turn this place into an example for others.

        Wrong about Adams BJ. He’s a single agent–for himself. It’s all about his own self-promotion. If you understand that then all the seemingly counterproductive things he has done regarding UGA make perfect sense.

        • Skeeter

          Jere Moorhead will be a big upgrade over Adams. He may have been an Adams underling and is not a strong personality, but he loves UGA, has been here forever and is not a jerk. Oh, and he has actually taught classes in a legit academic subject!

    I like the headline senator. Tweeted that exact thing to freeze right after his tweet.

    Dawgs get hit by The Blind Side.

    Check out what Treadwell got and tell me Ole Miss recruiting is on the up and up

    There’s also the story by 24/7 that when this first surfaced that CMR visited LT’s home earlier this week to determine if there was any truth to this and several family member were wearing Ole Miss gear and singing Hotty Toddy (pretty classless, if true). It is also being rumored that LT’s girl friend is being offered an academic scholly from Ole Miss. Anyway, with what was thought to be a lock for Tunsil by the good guys, just a week ago, may not come to fruition. 24/7 also commented that Ole Miss could end up with three of the no. 1 ranked players in their positions–Dkemdechie, Tunsil and Treadwell–their analysts said they’ve not been able to determine if that has ever happened before.

    • Mayor of Dawgtown

      Gee, ain’t we lucky that Ole Miss dropped off our schedule and we get LSU instead (snark, snark).

    • No One Knows You're a Dawg

      The dawgrun board had a link recently showing the flight plans for UGA’s plane (complete with a pic of the plane!). The plane was in Tallahassee Friday morning. My guess is that our coaches met with Tunsil or someone in his family about signing with UGA. This is a moment when Richt’s character is a tremendous asset, especially with the parents. And parents’ opinions always seem to mean a lot in determining where a recruit goes.

    Freeze is from Memphis, which is the Sodom and Gomorrah of college recruiting.

      And his recruiting coordinator is a Kiffin. Lane’s brother. He’s also their best recruiter and the main guy involved in getting all these 5 stars.
