Having just completed his senior season in Starkville, Mississippi State WR Chad Bumphis took to twitter to dispense some unsolicited advice to recruits just ahead of national signing day.  During his recruitment, Bumphis received offers from Alabama, Florida, LSU, and Oklahoma, so he’s well aware of what a difficult choice this can be.  The only problem is that fans of certain teams took exception with a couple of Bumphis’ characterizations of the recruiting process. Bumphis started his lecture innocently enough:   When asked if Bumphis was implying that Mississippi State had paid him, he clarified:   Things really took off after Bumphis passive aggressively engaged some rival Ole Miss fans, who had filled his mentions column.   Given that Ole Miss is having the best recruiting season in quite some time (possibly in the history of the school), it’s easy to see why they may be overly sensitive to implications of impropriety.  At the same time, Bumphis never mentioned any school by name, and never even alluded to any school in even the vaguest of terms.  Just goes to show that on the eve of the biggest day in program history, some Ole Miss fans are on high alert.
