Ole Miss’ faucet has an annoying drip.

That text message conversation that saw the light of day at the NFL draft?  Ole Miss admits it’s real and it’s spectacular.

Ole Miss officials have determined that a text message conversation published to Miami Dolphins rookie Laremy Tunsil’s Instagram account during the NFL draft did happen last year, sources told ESPN’s Outside the Lines, but the school is still looking into whether the messages were altered before they were published.

Looking into?  The parties involved don’t know if they were altered?  Maybe it’s just me, but if I were an assistant athletic director, I’m pretty sure I’d remember a conversation I had with a player who was asking for money – especially one who was suspended for half a season for taking improper benefits.

The Rebels received an NCAA notice of allegations in late January but have released few details about the investigation. The sources said Ole Miss officials expect to respond to the NCAA later this month.

Better get those loose ends tied up fast, boys.

    This is the tastiest schadenfreude I’ve had in a long long time.

    “if I were an assistant athletic director, I’m pretty sure I’d remember a conversation I had with a player who was asking for money ”

    Unless you have that conversation regularly with numerous players.

    Spectacular, indeed. Wonder how Terry Hatcher is doing. I’m with you, Senator, I pick off many of your references. If you ever move up to current pop culture, I’ll be left behind. So, now, phuch Ole Miss…

    As Rasheed Wallace was known to say….. The Ball Don’t Lie.

    So, hoping against hope that the images were resized or something so they can claim it’s impossible to prove other alterations weren’t made? I’m not a techie – anyone care to guess where they might be heading with this?

    “… but the school is still looking into whether or not anyone will buy the bullshit excuse that the messages were altered before they were published or if they need to come up with some other ridiculous story.”

    Fixed that for you, ESPN.
