I posted a question and then copied the entire article that was written. There was no mention at the time that I read it saying Taggart was offered and turned down the job.
I didn't see anywhere in the link that claimed Ole Miss offered Taggart. Please provide the exact location of this claim.Ole Miss Ole Miss has spoken to a large number of candidates while trying to position a job that could be very good or very bad. With the NCAA’s final ruling on the Rebels still TBD, candidates don’t know exactly what kind of roster they’ll be inheriting. Ole Miss has interest in Norvell, Strong, and Oregon’s Willie Taggart.Regardless of sanctions, AD Ross Bjork could make a move similar to Baylor’s hire of Matt Rhule: bringing in a proven head coach with no prior connections. Mississippi state law prevents the Rebels from offering a long-term, six-to-seven-year contract, but sources indicate an incentivized deal could compensate for guaranteed years.
Agree 100%. If anyone needed a reason to fire Matt Luke, just watch that disaster of a game again.
I'm as big an Ole Miss fan as the next guy, but how about we see Ta'amu play a team with an actual defensive pulse before we say he's better than any other QB? What teams haven't put up great numbers against Arkansas and Kentucky? I wish he would've gotten to play the second half against LSU so that we could have a bigger sample of him against a good defense.
Please Colin, tell me more about how Notre Dame sucks and isn't #3 because they lost to Georgia at home.
Hard to gloat as an OM fan, but I think the west puts it on the east every season (outside of the lopsided top teams).
Don't know how to prevent those turnovers? Gee, I dunno Matt. Maybe we stop throwing the ball with a 31-7 lead and just keep running it right at them. You know, basically just keep doing what is working.
Two quick turnovers and Arkansas is back within 10 at the half.
Does Patterson get any consideration if he breaks the single season SEC passing record?
So, basically he'll get the same reaction he got when he coached us?
Scheduled my wedding on a weekend Ole Miss and LSU both had BYE weeks. No way we would get my family there with either of those teams playing that weekend.
Considering the culture of rape and violence that surrounds the Baylor program, I'd say this is relatively minor. How many players in the SEC have drug problems...if you want to call marijuana a drug problem?
I'm referring to the fan base more so than the team. The team seems to be saying and doing all of the right things.
It was two blow out losses to two teams that were supposed to blow us out. I'm missing the point of all of this despair. Yeah, we should have won the Cal game, but good lord the schedule still shakes out for us to potentially win 6 or 7 games. Luke doesn't seem to be the guy to lead the program, but there's just not a whole lot of options on the coaching front at this point until the NCAA ruling is handed down.
BC powder. Dude had a killer migraine.
I'm as far from a left-wing liberal or social justice warrior as you can get and even I agree that it was sexist. It's essentially him saying he's surprised that a woman knows enough about the game to ask him a question about a technical aspect of the game. Like BamaTime said, there's no way to spin this that makes it better.
That's the first thing that I thought of, too. He's taken some punishment in the past few seasons and he seemed to be a little off in the video.
There's no denying that Bama has been dominant. I think that added with A&M's struggles this year equals a large margin of victory this weekend.
This is the greatest thing ever. Coach O is the gift that keeps on giving...to every team except the one he's coaching.
I wish they would ban cut blocks altogether. Derrick Henry tore Tony Conner's knee up with a cut block two years ago and he was never the same after than. The game is already physical enough without having players diving at your knees.
"Rebels quarterback Shea Patterson is talented, he doesn’t have the pieces around him like Chad Kelly and Bo Wallace did."You serious? The best receiver Bo and Chad had was Treadwell and there are three receivers on the team right now that could break all of his records this season. This is also the deepest O-line we've had in forever. Next time just say that Ole Miss doesn't have a defense comparable to the ones Kelly and Wallace had when they beat Bama, because Patterson has way more pieces around him than either of the other two ever did.
Before every home game at Ole Miss, regardless of the opponent, fans in the South endzone can hear a shout of, "Go to hell, LSU!" I've never heard anyone worry about shouting anything about State, but I have seen church billboards in 2003 with "Go to Hell, LSU" posted on them. I understand your need to feel relevant and important when trying to live up to big brother, but I don't know many fans personally (I live on the coast) that care about State anywhere near the same as they care about LSU.
Not to try to pile more on to this article, but Metcalf is listed at 6'4" 225 lbs and runs a sub 4.5 40. He was a multi event state champion in Mississippi's 5A classification. I'd wager that the kid has a size advantage over every DB in college football and a skill set to go along with it.
LSU rivalry > State rivalry
Agree on Fromm. The kid looked sharp Saturday night. It's really a rich man's problem deciding which of them to play.
Make that 5 and 30 for Mullen against ranked teams.
Isn't that the same guy that represented Casey Anthony?
Not sure about the season records, but he is only 5-29 against ranked teams.
The only player accusing Ole Miss of paying them admits to getting money on signing day...from the school he signed with...which was State. Glass houses and all.
Not a chance in hell that Mullen leaves State. The guy makes $5 million per year to be mediocre. He rarely beats anyone he is an underdog against. He's 5-29 against ranked teams. 5-29 only gets you paid $5 million at one school. He might be able to do more with a school that allows him to recruit better athletes, but his job security is through the roof right now. All he has to do is win an Egg Bowl every other year and upset a ranked team every couple of years and he's the greatest thing to happen to Starkville since they opened McDonald's (which was coincidentally voted the #1 hamburger in Starkville last year).
