Here is the wise advice Bumphis gave to the high school athletes prior to their big day:

No one was exactly sure why Bumphis made the comments. Did he say them from experience or was he poking fun at this year’s Cinderella recruiting class at his college rival Ole Miss?

After seeing his next tweet, you have to think he was just fishing for a reaction and taking a jab at the Rebels.

This is the kind of stuff that makes college sports so entertaining. College rivalries never die and they stick with you long after you make your final walk across the stage in your cap and gown.

    Banks career at MSU can be defined by one word, “overrated.” Yes he did do well this season against MTSU, South Alabama, Troy, and all those other crappy teams they played but when he had to step up in the SEC he just didnt have the ability to do it. I bet he is still putting ice on some of those burns Moncrief gave him in the egg bowl.

    You can say what you want about Banks but he is right. Does anyone really doubt Ole Miss alums are pulling out the cash? Hell, even their commits are posting pictures of them with their haul. A nobody coach at a school with no recent success coming off a 7-6 season is not pulling in this class without some help. The alumni have gone to far, even the USA Today article about this hinted at cheating. We will see if the NCAA decides to take a look at this “miraculous” turn around.
