It’s getting a little weird for some at Ole Miss.
The most talked about recruiting battle after National Signing Day has been that of Laremy Tunsil of Lake City, Florida. The behemoth tackle has coaches drooling over his projection to be the next Michael Oher at Ole Miss. His recruitment was a strange one. He was long thought to be headed to Georgia and had a change of mind at the end that has fueled speculation and a ton of anger from UGA fans and possibly even their administration. Does the current news of Georgia president Michael Adams stepping down play into this?
Adams plans to step down after 16 years at the helm of the state’s flagship university. Adams did a great job growing UGA and its enrollment nearly 6 times of its total when he started. [Ed. note: What?] I’m sure you are wondering why this has anything to do with Laremy Tunsil. It was announced that Adams is 1 of 8 new members on the NCAA infraction committee. In Craig Powers article on SBnation he said, “The NCAA says the move is to allow the committee to handle more cases and process more efficiently.” Powers went on to add, “Many are likely hoping this will be a step towards a speedier and more consistent process in the future.”
As little sense as this makes on its face, as it’s unlikely Michael Adams knew about Tunsil’s change in college plans before Georgia’s coaches did, it makes even less when you look at the rest of the time line – Adams announced his resignation months before being appointed to the infraction committee – for which the poster has conveniently supplied the links. So either Michael Adams has a prodigious ability to forecast the future which was previously undisclosed or some of the Ole Miss faithful are turning into a bunch that would be right at home talking to Finebaum. Occam’s Razor, peeps.
