    Just playing the cards he has. And yes, it is grating. But I think he is much more of a thorn to the west side of the SEC than it is to the east. Think of him as a less likeable Deion: all marketing is good marketing.

    If he does, do we even entertain him this time?

    I think it’s too late unless he wants to come here as a back up and I doubt that

    Simmons would have been a nice get, but his dad's comments make me think this kid may not really be a true competitor. When his dad says "But the schedule is too tough and they want DJ Lagway”, that makes me think he's looking for an easier path.

    They just want money because they, Ole Miss, have a 2024 QB committed

    Didn't you just say you hope you're proven wrong and things turn out better in recruiting yet you're doubling down on your bullshit? Which is it? Is 5 commits (possibly more coming) in less then 48 hours not good enough for you ?

    It screams future transfer prospect the moment he isn't the starter to me

    Here is the comment that made me look for such picture not to mention the guy he is responding to are friends. Scrolled through his twitter and they interact all the time. His response sounds sarcastic too " that's not nice" lmao

    He could have just meant he only got 18% or whatever but what a coincidence a day prior to the NIL deal Heitner (an attorney) is hanging out with Mr. NIL himself. It's just funny he was "chopping it up" with a major NIL distributer and all of a sudden the flip ,NIL and reclassification all happen.

    Heitner is in the NIL space. It's odd to you he is around others in the NIL space?

    Once again, it was 100% a joke.
