PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Freeze still doin' work.
Wow... incredible... dude has something up his sleeve. Doing an amazing job recruiting.
this makes absolutely no sense to me...the school offers very little in terms of academics, their football program has been crap for years, ive been to Oxford, MS and its a nice little southern town and Ole Miss campus is pretty but its not exactly a buzzing metropolis that could be remotely used as a selling point... i have no idea what he is selling to these kids. Early playing time may be it. But, up until Treadwell posted pictures of cash, I hadn't even thought of Ole Miss as any type of real player in recruiting. If they land garrett too, it has to be money IMO. Its as if all of these top talents just woke up on the same day and thought to themselves "I really want to play football at Ole Miss." (said no one before this past NSD).
"I really want to play football at Ole Miss."
- said no one ever haha!
Okay at this point, it makes sense. They got a few lucky breaks last cycle, and they got a few big time guys. Now guys in this cycle are being told "look at who we picked up last year, we have the momentum to win." That's not a difficult sell.
Secondly, it's a warm climate, and maybe not the best school, but if we're being honest, what percentage of these guys really hold that much stock in academics? If it was a high number, we'd see the B1G and the Ivys running the show.
I'm not gonna say there's no chance that foul play is involved, but it's not hard to find good reason for such a movement.
Maybe someone is telling these kids that ole miss will be playing Tennessee in the NC next season??
Curious to see if the "big time" recruits stay on board when they have a mediocre season.
Looking at that schedule, a mediocre season would be considered a success.
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
Also of note,some kids don't like the BIG college atmosphere!! A lot different playing in front of 60-80 thousand than it is in front of 100,000 plus.
There are a lot of pretty ladies in Oxford though, from what I've seen on gamedays.
Help is on the way.
Doing work huh
My exact thoughts. Nice
Here's another possible reason behind these kids choosing ole miss. We know we nkemdiche did...to play with his bro. and treadwell had his friend and hs teammate there. Tunsil, well, maybe he decided he'd rather play with nkemdiche than have to try and block him for the next 3 years at the least. And conner is from mississipi...so there's that.
And in this cycle, they can point to that haul and used that momentum, as .8 said above. And then you add in that these midwestern kids have grown up in crappy winter weather. They might like tje idea of not having to freeze their cojones off from november-march every year.
And here's a different theory I have that I don't think has been mentioned. These kids like the idea of the sec...I mean, its the gold standard of college football right now. Is ole miss a contender? No. But the opportunity to start their freshman year is there. and look at the way saban manages his roster...he brings in a full, fresh class every year. And if you don't come in and show you're a stud right away, you might be one of those casualtis of oversigning. That possibility isn't there at ole miss...if you have trouble adjusting, you won't find yourself being shown the door. So you get the perks of playing in the sec without the fear of being run out if you don't meet expectations from day one.
Like I said, just a theory I ve been kicking around in my head. That's just my opinion.

^I think you nailed it, there. Nkemdiche and Conner had very practical reasons to go there, Tunsil and Treadwell hopped on board -- but once you get someone like Nkemdiche (though Treadwell was technically on board first, it seemed obvious to everyone for months after Nkemdiche dropped Clemson that it was to go to Ole Miss), the ball starts rolling. I wouldn't be surprised to see them pick up some big names in addition to Bauer going forward this year. But, if Ole Miss goes out on the field and the product still isn't there, there's only so long they can sell recruits on potential (see: Lane Kiffin at USC and the 2013 recruiting cycle). Nkemdiche was a huge piece for them in building that class, which is why I'd hate to see what Michigan could do if they landed Hand. Most elite recruits want to play with other elite recruits, and often that can be just as big a factor as how much they like the coaching staff or university itself.
straight cash homie
throw the ball deep take the top off the defense
Once tams get back to playing football in the fall I'm not sure Ole Miss will be able to keep the recruiting momentum going. All of the recruiting momentum they have right now has been during the months of non-football.
If TN can keep things going then that is a team that could sustain momentum in recruiting.
