Don’t cry for me, Oxford.

SI.com asks the musical question, “How will the NCAA’s investigation into Ole Miss affect the Rebels’ recruiting?”.  Rather than just answer with a simple “bigly”, I think instead I’ll refer you to what the author proposes as a light at the end of the tunnel for the program’s message to recruits:

For now, coaches from other programs can continue to use the looming threat of a crushing blow from the NCAA to persuade prospects that they shouldn’t seriously consider Ole Miss. The Rebels can try to counter that strategy by claiming that they at least have a vague timeline for the end of the case and that they’re on the road to putting this whole thing behind them.

“Son, never mind what that prick says.  Rest assured, before you leave school, Ole Miss will be eligible to play in Shreveport again.”  Yeah, that’ll work.

    The real question is if they get a two year bowl ban sometime in 2018 will there be any recruits left that we want to poach? Someone needs to explain to me why they are holding on so tightly to Hugh Freeze? Wipe the slate clean and maybe the NCAA lets up. They keep him the NCAA will be on him for the rest of his tenure. It’s not like the guy is Saban or Corch.

      I just watched that whole thing and laughed out loud.
      I would like to know what he was really talking about because it seemed hilarious.

    I miss the Weedwacker Bowl and the camaraderie and league esprit de corps from SEC Media Daze of yesteryear when Hugh’s only worry was about what he can control

    Sure we cheated. And we got caught. But in two years time, we’ll be able to cheat again and pay you to help us get to a bowl.

    What’s that? Oh…of course we’ll match Auburn’s offer!
