Today, in As the Rebels Turn

I linked to this rather breathless allegation a couple of weeks ago:

“Ole Miss, per multiple sources, possesses a recording, and has given the SEC a copy, of Lewis’ mother asking Ole Miss for money and detailing incentives she received from other programs, including Mississippi State,” McCready reported.

Oh, hells yeah!  Pass the popcorn, bitchez!

So what’s the deelio?

A tape does exist, a well-connected source with knowledge of the case told, but the NCAA was aware of it before issuing Ole Miss an updated Notice of Allegations last week, and the tape isn’t any type of smoking gun…

The source who spoke to directly refuted the two key points in that report. The source said Lewis’ mother on that tape doesn’t ask Ole Miss for money and doesn’t mention other schools.

I see.  Other than that, though, it’s perfect, right?

Meanwhile, it looks like Ole Hugh’s got some more fish to fry.

Ole Miss signee Tae-Kion Reed was arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with burglary, according to Lowndes County Sheriff’s Department Detective Capt. Ryan Rickert.

Rickert said Reed attempted to burglarize a home and remains in Lowndes County Jail as of Wednesday morning. The investigation of the crime is ongoing.

Reed, 19, attends New Hope and is a three-star defensive tackle prospect, according to 247 Sports’ composite rankings.

“We are gathering facts on the matter,” an Ole Miss spokesman said.

Lucky for them, Ole Miss has lots of experience with fact gathering.  Heckuvan offseason you’re having there, Rebels.

    Ole Miss must really think they are going to skate.

    They should have imposed post season ban on themselves last year when it was clear their season was going nowhere. Instead they sat at home and didnt even get credit for it.

    I would also imagine that rival coaches and players will have a field day with the whole secretly recording mama thing on the road.

    Snitches get stitches.

    And Ole Miss has totally self’d themselves on this one.

    I worry that it is a bad thing that I am enjoying their pain so much. I worry the karmic bitches are watching and just looking for a chance to dump on me and my teams.

    Even if she did ask for money, it was only because she likely knew they were paying. Word gets around.

    all this dirt and tapes and stuff about the MS schools, and nobody had anything on AU? How disappointing. Call me when they catch Gus on tape offering hookers and blow to recruits. I would pay to watch THAT video.

      I hear it is the loaded gift cards to the “pretend casinos” Alabama has. Hard to trace those babies, and hard to wire the Pat Dye cabin where many “deals” are closed. One thing there is no doubt about, Auburn has been at it the longest, and are the dirtiest; Ole Miss is just a flash in the pan. Auburn and TN will be back on the front page soon.

    Regarding the burglary committed by the Ole Miss signee Reed, you all are being a bit too harsh. Where the hell else is he going to get his money with the boosters’ and coaches’ checkbooks closed off…?
