SB Nation and Verizon have put together a deep dive into what happened at Ole Miss and to a lesser extent Miss State.  You can get the basic details here.  I don 't have verizon so I don't think I can watch it, but I'm sure eventually it will trickle down to other outlets.

Supposedly it goes beyond Freeze and makes a lot of people look bad.  MSU gets painted bad, but I don't know if Mullen does.  Anyway, something to keep your eyes on.

Man, I feel like we have already loss Diddy over all this and I would hate to see Bulldog get so upset he stops posting too.  

That being said I feel like other programs should be very careful to point fingers.  Sometimes with diabetic ulcers they look small until you take a scalpel and remove the top layer.  Underneath is festering infection that can go deep, all the way to the bone.  I feel like this Ol Miss stuff is the tiny sore on top and is about to expose just how dirty our game really is underneath.

It's weird right now.  Teams like Bama don't have to cheat to get elite players.  Oh, I'm sure there is a little bit of money flowing from boosters, but it's not something Saban needs.  He ain't got time for that shit.  The rest of the conference is desperate to keep up with him and that desperation causes teams like Ole Miss and MSU to make bad decisions.  I don't think it's a coincidence that this happened in the West.

It happens because college football is no longer amateur athletics , it is " Big Business " … money corrupts ...
