    It looks good for Orgeron today, but I'm predicting right now that Jerrel Powe
    never suits up as an Ole Miss Rebel.

    Winner: Florida State. The "Noles class was looking rather average until suddenly, within about a three-hour span Wednesday, they landed WR Fred Rouse, RB Antone Smith and LB Eugene Hayes, all among the top six at their position according to Scout.com.

    "I can't say it's unexpected, but it's still surprising," said Wallace. "It just goes to show Bobby Bowden always has some tricks up his sleeve."


    "Tricks up his sleeve"...heheh...is that what they're calling slush funds these days?

    I think Orgeron has the kids believing he can turn around their program. He won't be able to use that marketing ploy for long if he doesn't start to deliver.

    However, Miles was at a disadvantage because he had to convince kids he would keep LSU on top - a much harder task if you ask me.

    That is exactly what I was telling some friends yesterday. His GPA is in the dumpster.

    I agree with you.

    Side note, I know that South Carolina land some pretty good recruits, but there's not that many South Carolina recruits that exactly blow me away. IMO, Nebraska, Iowa, OU, FSU and USC appear to be "winners".

    South Carolina is no more a "winner" than we are--and I think we have a very, VERY SOLID recruiting class--Especially for ONLY having 14 signings!

    FSU's late run on signing day was probably the best in recruiting history. They also landed Callahan Bright , the #2 DT in the nation as well as Matt Hardrick, the #5 OT in the nation. Rouse (#2 WR), Smith (#1 RB) and Hayes (#3 LB) came earlier in the day.

    Well the Perrilloux signing was extremely significant. It's the most important position on the field. It makes the biggest difference from losing no more than 1 game versus losing as many as 3 games in a season.

    You have to remember if Ole Miss get's bugs bunny and the road runner they would be considered one of their best recruiting classes ever. Out side of the Eli snag of a few years ago

    and maybe Lane, they've got zilch. same as always. :eek:lefire:
