Now it’s Ole Miss’ turn.

To do the NCAA shuffle, that is.

“As a precautionary measure, we are withholding Laremy Tunsil from today’s game until the pending process can be completed,” Ole Miss said in a pregame statement. “We are cooperating fully with the NCAA and feel this is the best way to protect Laremy, our football program and the university.”

Hey, we Georgia fans can tell you all about precautionary measures.  Based on recent history, if he’s already missed more than a half, it’s probably not good.

In case you’re wondering, Mississippi’s next three games are against Fresno State, Alabama and Vanderbilt.

  1. Well, they were likely to be 3-1 with him. Might as well be 3-1 without him.


  2. JT (the other one)

    He will be back for Bama’…


    • Probably. A bit of thread hijack. But man! Bama and the Barners getting the love from the press.

        I think Bama deserves it after Saturday’s game, but I haven’t seen that much positive about Auburn. I have seen some questions, especially about their offense. I think Alabama should move up, and Auburn should be dropped.

        As for Tunsil, Ole Miss would be wise to keep him benched and Tunsil should just (openly) get an agent and begin preparing for the combine. I think everybody knows there is dirt on that recruitment and putting the spotlight on it will bring more to the surface.

          But…but…but they have to play Fresno St. They’re ruined.

          Tunsil is just the first to fall off the turnip truck. Wouldn’t be surprised if some other rocks will have a few secrets underneath that may or may not be uncovered in the perusal of Tunsil. Is it just me or did I see something flash on the Bottom Line while watching the game on ESPN that had 4 out of the top 5 going in the NFL draft this year were from Ole Miss? Tunsil, Nkemdiche, Foster and ? were Mel’s picks. How in hell did Ole Miss get that bunch of athletes to come there at that time?

    “whatever we can control”… good luck coach, writing is on the wall in the AD’s office.
    The NCAA infractions committee is like the U.S. Senate… a very slow, deliberate body of very old men.
    Could there be more at Tennessee?


  4. I thought Georgia was the only program on the planet that would respect an ncaa investigation? What happened to that bunch of bullshit? I tried to tell you that until the ncaa clears a guy you can’t play him and you all said that no one else would sit their best player because of an ncaa investigation.

    Ole Miss will be fine, as long as they don’t prematurely announce that Tunsil is coming back for the Alabama game.
