People have found dispute with Ole Miss for a number of reasons but one Mississippi high school coach has particular beef with the college football program.
St. Stanislaus football coach Bill Conides wasn’t shy about sharing his frustrations with the Mississippi football recruiting process. He was particularly disgruntled when none of his high school seniors were signed with the university, taking his anger to Twitter.
Conides says that Ole Miss is notorious for making false promises and not following up with players they said the would meet with. They had reportedly been interested in more than one player from St. Stanisalus, but have not had contact or made offers with any of the them. Two of those players, Chase Rogers and Myles Brennan, have offers from other universities.
Ole Miss co-offensive coordinator, Matt Luke, contacted Conides after the tweet was sent, asking if the two could talk, face to face, about Conides’ frustrations. However, Conides refused, saying, “This has nothing to do with me. I’m just a high school ball coach. I want to make sure we call these people out because they think they’re on top of the world and can do what they do and manipulate the minds of 16 and 17-year-old kids. I’m not going to let that happen. I’m done with them.”
