No stone unturned

The most Laner story you’ll read today:

When it comes to finding walk-ons on college football rosters over the years, coaches from across the country have found players in a variety of places you would never expect. In desperate need of another punter, Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin told his players to search on campus and go find him a punter. And sure enough, they delivered. In Saturday’s press conference with the media, Kiffin shared the hilarious story about how his players found the latest addition to their football team at a frat party.

“Yeah, I don’t know a whole lot about him. I think he was down at the frat house. You know, like, at a keg party or something. Where they got him from. So, we’ve got some conditioning work to do with my guy. We just said, ‘Hey, someone go find a punter on campus.’ And so, we found one that actually used to punt Division I. So, you never know,” Kiffin said.

Kismet, baby.

The Rebels added Charlie Pollock to their official roster via the transfer portal on Thursday, August 11th. Pollock came to Ole Miss from Nevada and was expected to join the team as soon as Friday, per reports. He did not play football in 2021. He averaged 39.9 yards per punt as a high school senior.

That’s what you get when you’re known for always going for it on fourth down, I guess.

      The guy a huge part of the fan base believes cost them another God-given natty?

        You give those Gumps way too much credit. They’ll hire any snake they figure will offer them the best chance at winning. Kiffin, Freeze, Petrino, Jimbo even. Hell, they hired Saban back when he was known more for being a fuckn liar than as an NC winning coach at LSU who regularly beat the shit out of ‘em.
        Whoever they hire best get used to being abused by the Tide fans as he’ll never duplicate Sabanocchio’s success. The Dawgs will see to that.

      I’ve said it for years.
      Give the guy Bama resources and he’ll be a problem.

    CKS is down on our current punt performance. Might not be a bad idea to get the word out around the classic city. You never know what/who might show up.

    That’s nothing when you consider that Kiffin’s Mississippi State counterpart finds his defensive coordinators the same way.

    Didn’t UT have to police escort their 6th string K from a tailgate party to kick against us a while back?

      That individual was actually enrolled in the big urnge kuntry law enforcement “debris removal” program on a several mile long stretch of the local interstate, prior to kick off…and then was escorted…
