“I can tell you this. It ends terribly for everyone involved.”

If you are an amateurism romantic, I warn you that Steven Godfrey’s inside the sausage factory look at Mississippi recruiting won’t give you the warm and fuzzies.  Sure, Hugh Freeze’s sanctimony and chutzpah make him an easy target, but the real finger-pointing goes towards the NCAA and, indirectly, our love of the game that makes us willing accomplices to the comfortable fiction that the NCAA sells.

You can watch the first installment, which centers around the Laremy Tunsil saga, here:

There are three more installments that follow, so hang on.

      Interesting video, but I have a hard time feeling sympathy for Ole Miss. Yeah, the kids get screwed, but the coaches and schools make millions.

    Really interesting follow up to the original bagman article. That article is one of the most insightful pieces of investigative journalism I’ve ever seen. So far the video is a nice summation of the stuff that leaked out over time about Ole Miss and Co.

    Can’t say I am surprised. EVERY school to a degree has dirt. Boosters with more money than common sense.

    While having read the story compiled from various reporting that is assimilated like drops of water, the full cascade of the repeated and linked information versions is like a bucket of water dumped all at once. Lives have been savaged by the information links of the Leo Lewis story that stretches the tendrils of dishonesty between two rival SEC schools, their public administration representatives and selected athletes that create a perfidy that touches reasoning of all sports fans of SEC teams, sports businesses that live off the edge of public school administration information and their conjoined business living off poor athletes; a large pos that doesn’t care about the players, the conference nor the individual schools represented by that conference.

    The hypocrisy of the coaches, the SEC and the NCAA creating the template that writes this sad story becomes more and more evident with each act that is viewed on this sports stage that had it’s beginning in the gutter. My viewing pleasure now has a vengeful edge that can only be played out by kicking the shit out of teams coached by this panoply of deceit, including the FU coach who recently was mixed into our rivalry. That he is involved in the Rebel Rags suit is satisfaction enough considering the enmity he has created in other states and what that will do to his recruiting at FU.

    This is all worth a reread for any fan who makes the time to do so – and it ain’t over yet. Thanks for the link, Senator, and it seemed open for anyone to read or play the installments.

    Thank you for the upload Senator. We all new something stunk when he got all those 5 star recruits in one year.

  6. This guy is very naive if he thinks paying the college players is going to solve any of this.
