Quite possibly the worst column I've read in some time. You do read your own notes, right? #118 in the country in Pass Defense. That's actually 8 spots worse than the previous disaster. With the right coach, Ole Miss can be competitive, but that coach is definitely not Luke, MM or RR.
The Luke story was never going to end any other way - whether now or later. Regardless how long the search takes, the Ole Miss administration needs to get this coaching hire right. We are out of mulligans.
What he did was wrong - plain and simple. You know nothing.
Ole Miss AD Keith Carter, coach Matt Luke issue joint statement on Elijah Moore’s ‘dog pee’ celebration penalty
Matt Luke. Keith Carter. Elijah Moore. ENOUGH! Please just leave. Don't insult our intelligence with your blathering, insincere banter. Who would have thought things could actually get worse AFTER the NCAA sanctions???
The Moore antics ARE NOT how many Ole Miss fans get "caught up in the moment." What HE did was offensive and unsportsmanlike. There is simply no excuse for this happen. And yet, it's the SECOND time it's occurred under Luke. To a national television audience and State fans, please accept an apology from alumni who ACTUALLY do love Ole Miss.
Rapid Reaction: Mississippi State wins Egg Bowl on Ole Miss missed extra point; earns postsesason berth
OK, I'll be the first Ole Miss poster. First, Moore's antics were absolutely classless and a total embarrassment to every Ole Miss alumnus. Oh, and they were also STUPID. Second, the ending was perfectly predictable. We've seen this train wreck before. Luke would be a pretty good recruiting coordinator, but that's about it. Head coach or position coach...uh, pass. Third, there are many, many good Ole Miss alumni and fans. Unfortunately, many of the people who post on this site have never experienced them. My apologies. Finally, congratulations to State. It wasn't pretty, but unfortunately, not much in Mississippi football is these days.
Not saying he wasn't a good player - obviously he was. When he came ready to play, he was almost unstoppable. That just wasn't very often. For the nation's number one player and his undeniable talent, he never reached his ceiling IMO.
In my opinion, he was a bust at Ole Miss. Great potential and optics, but character issues and baggage always hindered him. It's sad to see such gifts wasted.
You missed my point. Is it impossible for people to be grateful anymore?
Understand all sides, but Burrow should exercise a little humility and be grateful for HIS opportunity. If he doesn't make it as a pro or spend time on his studies, he may be the one cleaning the office. Just saying...
Totally accurate comment.
I'm sure this camp is critical to his development. Much ado about nothing.
Maybe now folks can understand why we were delighted with an AD change. Sad.
Congrats Vandy! Great pitching, hitting and defense. Clearly the BEST team in college baseball this year.
Dude seriously needs some sliding lessons! Ouch!!!
That dude can swing the bat!
For Auburn, that was BRUTAL!!! Congrats to the Bulldogs. They just simply wouldn't give up.
Congratulations to Arkansas! Better pitchers, better hitting and just better effort. Between State, Arkansas, Auburn and Vandy, the SEC is well represented at Omaha. Good luck to everyone!!!
Incredible to watch! His total command of all pitches, especially that wicked breaking ball, was amazing!!! But what was more astounding was his post game interview. In the days of the "ME" generation, he was genuinely humble, appreciative and team first. He represents his family and Vandy well!!! Congratulations!
I just can't stop : ) smiling!!!!!!!!!! Best of luck TAMU. Really.
Exactly. That's my point. Many of the current problems in college football could be erased with a more structured and transparent minor league system. The same could be said for basketball. Both the NFL and NBA are multi-billion dollar enterprises. It could be done, but corporate greed will never let it happen.
How about this??? For the best players (including those who think they are), college football is no more than the minor league of the NFL. Let's stop pretending most of these kids are there for an education. Whether it's football or basketball, the majority have their eyes on the big prize - not alma mater. Eventually, sweeping reform of the entire process will happen. The system already works pretty well for NCAA baseball. Why not use a similar model for the other sports?
Congratulations to Vandy. They just wouldn't quit. Their team hitting resume is legit. Everyone swings the bat well, and there are no easy outs. This team could possibly win it all. By the same token, congrats to Mike Bianco and the Rebel team as well. They weren't supposed to even be there. Vandy is just the better team from top to bottom.
Hey about 45 years too late for my knees!!! : )
That's $43.1 million a year!
Hey, we're not mad at TAMU or trolling you. I sincerely hope he works out for you. From the beginning of his time in Oxford, it's been the wrong fit. He was a complete dumpster fire for Ole Miss. And before anyone jumps on the "fund raising" wizard bus, remember our annual take from the SEC revenue pool is a cool $43.1 from 2019 alone. Other than that, he's left us quite a chunk of debt. He would have never left without another job. So believe me, we APPRECIATE TAMU!!!
Hate to burst your bubble, but NO ONE is sad to see Bjork go. Most people see only the NCAA problems. Trust me, the real issue is much broader. If he works out for TAMU, then great. But for us, it was the best possible outcome!
Bueller? Bueller?? Bueller???
Here's a little perspective...with apologies to super villains everywhere! Thanos has been vanquished. Darth Sidious has been eliminated. Lex Luther is in prison. The Joker has been dismissed. The force has restored balance and restored the Infinity Stones. It's kind of like that!
Christmas in May!!!
