Your thoughts on the best recruiting class in Ole Miss history....?
very top heavy.....2-4 5* recruits and then a crap ton of 3*. Step in the right direction, but they lack depth and once the novelty of a new system and hope (which is a big deal in CFB compared to NFL) wears off, I expect them to be middle of the pack.
Is Ole Miss going to be a real contender and did the hardest division of College Football just get harder for LSU?
No. They will be the trendy "darkhorse" pick, but as mentioned above, Bama and LSU have 4 full classes of studs. OM has 1 class that is probably 50% studs and the the other 3 are rough at best, but try hard and overachieved this year. I know people want to say OM is rising and will be near the top, same with aTm, but step back a sec and realize that OM went 7-6 this year and that's with two dumpster fires in the division at teams that aren't usually that way. Expect Auburn and Arky to be better as well. Same can be said about aTm. Step back and realize that their best year in the last 20 effectively got them 3rd in the SECW behind LSU (who had a down year) and Bama.
The SEC West will always be a challenge, but I don't expect LSU to be taking steps back and some of the other teams still have a few years before they catch up and consistently compete at the top.
