Dissatisfied Ole Miss Rebel
I agree! When it comes to town allegiance to their high school team, no state does it better than Texas. I'm from TN, but I have extended family from Houston Northshore, and that team looks like a college program and would beat the pants off of any high school program in TN. I think FL, GA, TX, CA have the top high school circuits. The main point is if State school coaches are able to develop these players and from the looks of it the MS schools have done better in player development than both A&M and Texas have done (at least this year) since both MS schools beat A&M pretty soundly this year.
That’s rich coming from a Bama fan. You guys literally murder fellow or rival fans when y’all lose a game and crow all the time about your #1 recruiting classes, but if a rival school like Ole Miss were to have in-roads with a 5* player like Arch, you’re all like “he still has a year of high school…y’all talk about him all the time” attitude. Wonder if you’d say the same thing if Arch said “Roll Tide” in that video.
I like Carrol putting his team in check. He's right! We play like we did against Vandy and State will win by at least 2 scores. If we play like we did against A&M, then we should win in Starkville. Let's hope we are ready to lead early, maintain that lead, and finish strong. Our defense needs to be stingy and nasty on Thursday. We stop Rogers and the Egg stays with us! Hotty Toddy!!!
It's a state of MS rule. Now, MS can re-extend a contract though, so there are some grey areas with the 4 year contract max being extended for longer. Right now, LSU would have to buy-out a 15 of a 20 million dollar contract since Kiffin gets paid 5 million plus incentives at Ole Miss and then they'll have to add another 8-9 million a year just to nab Kiffin, since, ya know, Ole Miss athletic director Keith Carter is already securing Kiffin a 30-35 million dollar contract extension, with the FBI looming over the LSU program. I just don't think LSU OR Kiffin is interested in either the LSU or FL jobs. I may eat crow, but he loves Ole Miss and loves his boss, Keith Carter. They're both about the same age, and, if you've ever been to Oxford, you'd know it's one of the best college towns in all of college football. Obviously you can win big at Ole Miss. Look at what they've done since the Playoff era. Soon to be 3 New Years Six in just 7 years.
Like I said in another thread, If Kiffin bolts for Miami, then Ole Miss should make Miami their non-conference Power 5 opponent, hire Jeff Lebby as head coach and pay Lebby more than what we paid Kiffin, as we beat the brakes off some Canes no matter if it's in Oxford or Coral Gaybles. Go Rebs Go!
If Kiffin leaves, I would schedule a home for home with Miami, hire Jeffy Lebby, pay Lebby more than what we paid Kiffin, then beat the pants off the U That would be sweet justice Hotty Toddy!
