Y'all are pathetic. This looks like a thread on the barn site when coach Saban came in and started recruiting lights out. We had been perennial middle of the road and below for a while and he turned it around. I guess you guys believe coach Saban is the only man in the world that can turn crap into gold. And before you kid yourself, crap is exactly what were dealt after CGS retired.
"Theres No Substitute for Guts"
CNS had won a bcs title, coached in the nfl, and was at a school that has a history of winning big. what about freeze and ole miss comes close to that? he was a character in a movie?
I'm sure it's just Hugh Freeze, a year removed from Arkansas State, and the magical and record breaking 7-6 season.
Yeah, Saban and Freeze, and Ole Miss and Alabama, definitely have similar track records. Great point.
Never Gets Old
Exactly. If Urban Meyer had done this at Ohio State, no one would be making these allegations. Freeze has nothing to legitimately sell these kids which would account for this level of success in his first full recruiting class.
So none of you believe. That a coach like Freeze. Could convince several top recruits to come in & help turn Ole Miss around? WOW! if you truly believe that he couldn't talk some talented teenagers into thinking that?

I could see it more if Ole Miss was a traditional power that had been down and was turning things around. Or if he was a life long fan wanting to restore them to glory. Ole Miss is a traditional "also ran." Yeah, I have a hard time seeing how he could reach out to Tunsil, who wasn't even mentioning them 4 weeks ago, and convince him to bypass UGA and Alabama, where early playing time is available (in addition to all the other things those schools have going that Ole Miss doesn't) and considering he has friends on each of those teams, to go to a bottom level SEC school that is still riding high off of its unexpected Birmingham Bowl birth. Everyone is entitled to his opinion, but that one doesn't pass the smell test.
Then you & others underestimate what these coaches get paid to do imho. Recruiting is the life blood of the sport. & if Freeze & others aren't pulling this kind of talent. They aren't gonna have a hope in hell of staying competitive in the SEC. & he will be at a Big East school of worse at his next job!
So Freeze is just straight up going head to head with the top recruiting head coaches in college football and beating them all out on every targeted top recruit
They all get paid to do this, but he's the only one doing it, and with very little to sell, IMO. No one has ever pulled the top three recruits in the country, then all of the sudden a coach with three SEC wins to his name total, ever, whose team was demolished by virtually every quality team it played last year, is going to do it, and to Ole Miss of all places? As Cris Carter would say, "Come on, Man!"
