    This may sound a bit far fetched, but if I was an Ole Miss fan, I’d actually have a ton of confidence invested in Nutt, even though he was considered nothing above mediocre at Arkansas up until his last two seasons. By the way, when’s the last time an Ole Miss fan had the right to put what little confidence he/she supposedly has into a coach?

    Tuberville was a failure…

    Orgeron was a failure…

    Cutcliffe is the only decent coach they’ve had recent years.

    Hopefully Nutt can put the pieces back in place for the Rebels.

    Until the Mississippi finds a way to direct some of the Casino money toward “Hope Type ” Scholarships – both schools are going to be bottom feeders.
    Meantime back here in Alabama – Football Fans need to get the Lottery going again to keep our schools competitive.

    Gee, during our problems with players on the strip the last year wasn’t our dedicated local media pointing towards Croom as a shining example of a disciplinarian?

    To be fair, he is taking action but this only proves that program is far from cleaned up. I only thought it worth mentioning that Saban was being skewered over all those problems and Croom’s program is hardly one worth pointing toward.
