Everybody’s got their preseason happy talk game going.

Even Ole Miss.

If the NCAA slaps a two-year penalty on the program, I wonder how many of those same kids are going to hightail it for greener pastures.

    Could those kids know Freeze was a fraud and glad he’s gone?

    How many hightail it for greener pastures? Any of them that are good–if they are smart. UGA might be able to pick up some guys who may be able to help the Dawgs.

    How can they say anything else? They came there knowing there was an undercurrent about things to come. It might not have been this specific situation but the drumbeats were loud about recruiting issues that would surface. Wonder if they have any recruits we might need to make a push for? We still need some DL talent in the 2018 class.

    If there’s anyone still there who was getting paid, my money is on a transfer to Auburn.

    Ahh, basically the ol’ “3 star heart will triumph over 5 star talent” talk. It’s that time if year where everyone is right on the cusp of a championship season ahead.

    I find no joy in O’MS’s punishment. Yes, a lot of people need to be held accountable and maybe punished..but there are lots of young people that are getting burned for transgressions they knew nothing about and had nothing to do with. Also, I know some good people that are O’Ms grads and they are embarrassed for something they can’t help. It hurts the whole conference. However, if kids decide to bolt, there’s no shame or ugliness in offering them a spot on UGA’s roster. If they are determined to transfer, then offering them is fine.
    “The Rise and Fall of the Ole’ Miss Football Program” is ripe for the writing. Too bad Faulkner’s dead..died in 1962..the year of much upheaval as James Merideth entered O’Ms as the first black student. ..the same year that O’Ms went undefeated and won the SEC under coach Vaught..who implored his players to conduct their behavior against the U of Houston in such a manner as to “show the world we’re not all bad”. O’Ms, had it been outside the deep South, would have almost certainly been voted National Champs that year.
    I wonder where the program is heading now…certainly in a forward direction, as even the hardest of the old-ways constituents realize the past was wrong. It must have seemed Freeze was a godsend. He let them down.
    The SEC needs a healthy Ole Miss. Might be a while, though.

      It hurts the conference? WTF?! What hurts the conference is when a school like Ole Miss buys players and their cheating WORKS. That hurts all the honest schools who have to compete with the cheaters. Thank goodness the Rebs/Bears got caught and penalized. Now if we can only get someone to expose Auburm……

        I agree. It works for a while…hurts the honest programs..then hurts the hell out of O’Ms, and the rest of the schools too. When there will be no bowl payout for them, wins against them will be diminished in importance because they will be weakened, winning the West will be one game simpler, etc..hurts everyone. Fodder for talking heads that already love to talk down the SEC… It hurts the conference. From the first cheating day tilll the last day of penance Not sympathizing for the cheaters..only the bystanders..fans, alumni, players, etc. that get covered in their dust.
        But when schools cheat and get away with it..yeah, that hurts even worse.
