  1. Ole Miss pulled in a top recruiting class on the heals of a so many loosing seasons and one 6-6 season. Hum…..

  2. It’s has to be pretty frustrating that Mississippi State’s BEST recruiting tool to compete with Ole Miss is to generate lies through partisan media and pass these “headlines” on to recruits. I would be ashamed my program. Bottom line – Starkville SUCKS and nobody wants to spend their college days tailgating in a cow pasture.
