VERY fishy indeed, I can understand Ole Miss getting some guys, but to have a guy commit like that out of the blue is fishy.

Does Ole Miss bend the rules? I think so. Does Alabama, Auburn, LSU, UGA bend the rules also. I think so. They are going to have a WR drafted in the first round. They have a 5 star QB so no I don't find it strange he is going to Ole Miss.

So landing a highly rated prospect when OM was a non factor for almost the entire process is not fishy?

The Special "Magic" of Ole Miss


Don't you love it? When it gets this close to Signing Day, the miracles just keep coming at Ole Miss! It's as annual as Valentines Day now, but with the wacky surprises of April Fools thrown in! And we're the fools, of course. Guess which five-star is going to Ole Miss now! No, no way! WAY!

Don't be cynical, folks. It's easily accounted to the brilliance and irresistible appeal of Hugh Freeze. Or perhaps the desire of so many young athletes to be close to William Faulkner's home, having admired "The Sound and the Fury" and "Absalom, Absalom" so much in their AP English classes. Maybe a South Florida kid like Tre Nixon longs for the progressive urban life of North Central Mississippi. Or couldn't it just be that he feels himself inexorably drawn to the age-old tradition and pageantry of being a "Rebel Black Bear"? Or he's grown up watching all those SEC Championship Game appearances. Wait, no, not that one.

Whatever it is...we can all agree Ole Miss has some SPECIAL TINKERBELL MAGIC that began precisely three years ago when Ole Miss jumped from a #40 finish the previous year to #7 in ONE season, suddenly recruiting from every corner of the South and beyond when it had previously struggled to hold down its own state for decades. Lots of players seemingly woke up one morning in early February and decided that they DIDN'T want to go to that boring old Bama or LSU or Georgia they'd been committed to for years; no, it was an epiphany moment: Ole Miss was the place! And lots of their family members wanted to move there too! You can only look at the special jobs and homes and extra scholarships some of them have managed and laugh at the fickle finger of Black Bear Rebel fate.

It's like that old uncle of yours who sold used cars for years and could never make ends meet, then, long about that year he bought the fishing boat down near the Keys, started having boatloads of cash for some reason. Just a great guy, that's how you explain it! As Hugh Freeze tells us--God i$ good! - Saxondawg

I knew the coach who recruited Eric Dickerson for OK State. He said Dickerson wanted $10K for an official, and $50K to sign.

First, despite what Reverend Herchel says, all schools pay players.

Second, if you're going to make this argument, I think WR is a bad position to use as your evidence. Our returning WR are damn good, and the commits we already had were as well. Didn't "need" his kid. Can't see him being the one we just drop $$$$ on to get committed.

As pointed out, Laquon about to go Top 5, and Cody Core is going to get his name in there after the combine. 5-star QB coming in to be the future. Oxford could be WR nirvana for a few years, especially compared to the rest of the SEC.

But a kid totally out of the blue choosing OM is not fishy? UGA bringing in Eason, Bama has Barnett, and guys like AJ Green, Julio, and Amari have had pretty decent NFL starts, while Ridley at Bama and Godwin at UGA are both showing signs of being top 10 picks. Bama has put out more elite WRs the past four years, is still youngnat WR and frosh could play, ask Ridley, and we have Blake Barnett and proven ability to putnWRs in the first round under Kiffin. But yeah, OM is better for WRs

How many times do Auburn, Bama, UGA on the outside looking in on a prospect and then they official and they either commit or announce they are leading now. If he had not taken an official then I would get the hate. Ole Miss has a lot to sell whether we like that or not. When you sign one of the best QB's it would be odd not to sign a great WR class.

Because of the timing of the game, I don't really are who wins. First game of the season and all, either can still make a run later. Just hoping for a good game, no sloppiness, injuries, etc.

But, if they were playing in a NC or some such late game that really mattered, Ole Miss.

Yet you also think that UGA doesn't give benefits but teams that land below UGA on recruiting rankings do pay their players? This is why most SEC fans can't take your moral high ground seriously.

I don't think Bama buys players wit bags of cash like in the old days, but I'm sure we bend other rules. Bama has no need at all to have to pay players to sign, they know its the fastest way to get to the NFL and make real money.

I think only two teams pay players, and Auburn isn't one of them.
There is absolutely nothing odd about UGA landing 5 star players every year. If you haven't noticed, Georgia produces the third most 4 & 5 star players in the country.
1. Texas
2. Florida
3. Georgia
4. California

Further, Georgia has produced the most SEC players for the past 10 years in a row.

It would odd if UGA didn't land 5 star players every year.

Top 15 recruiting class every year since 2002 per rivals. Most of those years, top 10...and you guys say you don't have top recruiting classes...The only school that has done better (and not over that entire time frame), is Bama, perhaps LSU. Herschel says he thinks only two schools give benefits to players in the SEC..that's baloney. I'd say that every program outside of Vanderbilt has or is still giving benefits to players.

My point wasn't to say that Ole Miss isn't cheating, hell no. I think they're cheating on a level on par with SMU, but this idea that fans of "big six" schools have that their school isn't paying or giving some form of benefit to players is kind of ridiculous.

I do agree though that Ole Miss has gone above and beyond at this point and it's going to wind up biting them sometime.

It isn't top 5 without fail as you claimed. Considering the talent in Georgia, top 15 seems a given, as is true for a couple of other SEC schools. UGA has had the same coach during that timeframe, something every other SEC school can't say.

So, since you say everyone cheats....That means Auburn cheated to get Cam right? Cause as you say, there was never any tangible proof of money changing hands, but everyone cheats, so we can assume that Auburn cheated when they bought.....i mean....recruited Cam

For the 100th time. I never said Cam wasn't possibly bought. I said there is zero proof showing that he was.

The sad point here is some of you guys let a player or players being paid ruin your excitement for the game. What does it matter if someone is bought? Does it affect you going to games, or affect how you enjoy college football?

If so, that is pretty pathetic.

You mean other than the NCAA finding a violation? Or the admission that a MSU booster offered his dad cash?

How do you define "zero proof?"

What violation did they find?

And you're an attorney, so I'm surprised you would have posted the part about MSU. How does an MSU booster offering cash for Cam prove that Auburn paid for him? One has nothing to do with the other.

I am an attorney, and I wasn't referring to Auburn. I was referring to Newton himself.

As for the violation, I am sure you are aware that a school must declare an athlete ineligible once a violation is discovered. Auburn declared Newton ineligible - not because AUBURN committed a violation, but because the rule that was violated applied to NEWTON. He was reinstated by the NCAA, and they issued a statement which is no longer on the NCAA website outlining the violation and the reasons for the reinstatement. I believe the bylaw violated was 12.3.3

Now that you mention it, that does sound familiar. I had forgotten that part, as he never missed any time. Thought the NCAA let it go entirely.

He didn't miss any game time. They reinstated him almost immediately saying they lacked the evidence that he was aware of his father's attempts to get the money. But the rule is clear that if someone on the players behalf solicits money, it is a violation involving the player, since the NCAA doesn't have jurisdiction over the father.

You are exactly right.......Newton was suspended by Auburn during the week prior to the Georgia game and was reinstated by the NCAA within 24 hours.

Best defense with the NCAA is always to look the gentlemen with no subpoena power dead in their eyes, and say "Prove it."
