going on at Miss. Hugh Freeze is not an outstanding recruiter, unless he has some help along the way. I do not know what it is, nor am I prepared to make an accusation, simply saying, it is STRANGE, and completely out of the ordinary for them.
Didn't you kind of just do that?
I assume every commit they get that's a 4* will provoke these types of posts and that I'm just going to have to get used to reading them but I wish they'd stop
Well no one is requiring you to read these kind of posts. I am sure lots of posters don't read every post, including those made by you.
New staffs with a good msg always do good in recruiting their first two seasons. They can sell playing time, being the foundation for a culture change, etc. Any SEC team with a little tradition can do well recruiting under a young, energetic staff that showed any decent amount of success on the field. It's normally that third year before recruits start looking for that staff overall results. UT under kiffen, AU under chizik, UF under muschamp, vandy under franklin, UT has momentum again with Jones and staff.

I'll say it: OLE MISS is CHEATING. Not only are they paying players to visit, but they are paying them not to visit other schools. That's on top of paying them to play for Ole Miss courtesy of your local Ole Miss Boosters. We have some folks on here that are NAIVE, I see. You Naive guys better open your eyes to what is going on. Can't believe people are that gullible.
This ^^^^^^^^^^^^, I live in MS and have no hard evidence but there is a ton of talk about it, even among Ole Miss folks. Their theory is that if AU can get away with it then why not go for it at all cost. I mean they are not winning anyway, so what's the worst that can happen? A slap on the wrist. In my opinion it will get worse before it gets better. Dont be surprised if at the last minute high profile recruits switch to Ole Miss. I'm not scared, but cheating is cheating. It's almost as if they just don't care, the boosters have a green light and they are trying to buy victories. Ole Miss is a has been, a mid level SEC team. Now you tell me how they go from mediocre recruiting to lights out overnight. Yeah, I understand the circumstances of several players this year, but if they do it again this year something is up for sure, no doubt about it!!!! Money changes hands all the time, these Ole Miss alumni are on a mission, dont be so gullible. Dont say that one player bought can't make a difference, .... CAM Newton, best money AU ever spent. Pay and no punishment. Personally, I think we need a new SEC commissioner, one that actually looks into allegations!!!!
I'm not sure why you say he's not a good recruiter. I know him from when my son played for him in Memphis. He is a very inspirational speaker and I've listened in on enough pre-game and half-time talks to know he can fire 'em up.
That's the kind of thing that Mommas and Daddys like to hear when he goes to their house. He has charisma and confidence and you know he's a winner just listening to him. He won state championships in girl's basketball and football when he was at Briarcrest and has won at the college level everywhere he has been, even if it was Division III and ASU.
Whether he's doing it the right way at Ole Miss will soon be discovered, but I wouldn't call him a poor recruiter.
oh noooz...somebody else is getting decent players
He was simply saying that by you saying something is "strange" going on, that in itself by many people's minds is understood that you're sort of making an accusation. Logically would you agree with this? Maybe you made a mistake in what you were trying to get across? It happens, just trying to help.
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
I think it is lame and classless to accuse another program of cheating. If they are cheating, what does it matter? Bama is on another level right now and the last thing we should be worried about is OM recruiting.
Lol. Why not just post this....."I'm not saying they're cheating, but they're probably cheating".
lol it's Ole Miss....who cares?
Actually the most naive thing someone could do is believe a delusional message board poster making accusations without providing any proof. If you can back up your claims with some valid evidence you MIGHT not sound so idiotic, or as the other poster said, scared.
You left out the part where the people who make these claims are essentially saying there isn't a single recruit on Ole Miss's board with any integrity. Funny how they offer money to all these players and not only do many of them take it but literally ZERO even mention it to another living soul. Clowney did an interview just to call Saban boring and short, yet the only people talking about getting paid are former Auburn players on HBO.
This is no different than any generic conspiracy theory - all these people are in on it, and somehow, everybody is on the same page, even the ones who they failed to bring into the fold. I'll take it seriously when I see something other than what essentially amounts to a guy at his computer making things up.
