Its fairly simple to argue the point. We weren't on a bowl ban because of Luke. You don't typically finish a bowl ban and instantly become a relevant team. Even USC is still fighting its way back.

The only fans that need convincing to get excited are the fair weather fans who actually believe rehiring the guy who placed us in this situation would be the best move.

Urban Myer at OSU, Tater at Auburn, Bill O'Brien Penn Stgate, and Butch Davis at The U all proved it can be done. Freeze left Ole Miss just as hot as most of those programs albeit without the overall name recognition of the historic program.

Yeah. I'm a real fair weather fan when I've watched us lose in person to Jacksonville State, Wyoming, Louisiana Tech, and other shitty programs over the years. Ever think maybe we want Freeze back because he's the only coach who has made us nationally relevant since Vaught?

And Luke was part of Freeze's staff since day 1. It amazes me how his supporters forget this

Then promptly lost a star. Downgraded to 3* at the Opening.

It had nothing to do with The Opening. It’s what Quicksilver said. ESPN somehow managed to not evaluate a 4 star prospect who had been invited to compete with the best of the best at the Opening halfway through the recruiting cycle. They saw he committed here and just randomly assigned a mid 3 star rating because it’s Ole Miss.

I will take all of those 3*s The opposite happens when Bama gets a 3* guy because he fit their needs, they instantly becomes a 4*!

If he decommitts from us and signed with Bama or Georgia what do you think the final ranking would be? We all know how this works.

That’s just fine. Maybe it will just piss him off and he’ll play that much harder.

Exactly. A high three w/ a good offer sheet that the coaches like is just as good, and probably better, than the four w/ weak offers that the staff reaches for to boost ratings.

I wonder how hard we were really on Corbet Mims out of Memphis?

Probably not very hard since he committed to Arkansas State

Well, I suppose you might be correct.

Haven't seen much movement on any of our prospects recently. Looks like Jeremiah Pegues is going to pick us or one of the Alabama schools. Reaallllyyyyy hoping it's us, it would look horrible for Matt Luke to have Brandon Turnage and Pegues in back-to-back years and let them both get away

Jabari Small will announce on 8/15. I'll be very surprised if it's not us.

How many are we expected to sign in this class? 25, 26?

We started sliding when Freeze was still HC and allegations/wild stories repeatedly kept coming out from multiple sources. We turned into a WR/QB destination but struggled with everything else.

I think there are 17/18 seniors on scholarship for this upcoming year. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was closer to 25 total signees by February though with the way the transfer portal is working.

Also, I saw on Twitter that half the Dandy Dozen is out. I doubt any of them sign with Ole Miss but I wish that ranking was still relevant.
