    Ole Mi$$ came out of nowhere

    to get a commit from Tre Nixon. It is a recurring theme. They have some ace recruiters in Oxford.

    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.

    Don't worry, Auburn won't be outdone:

    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

    Reminds me of what SMU's old coach said during the time when they were buying every player in sight: "It's the darndest thing. These kids just wake up on Signing Day and say, "'You know what? I want to play for SMU!'"

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