Today marks the fifth anniversary of Houston Nutt’s final recruiting class at Ole Miss, and, God willing, NOT HIS LAST IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL*. If you recall, after signing the 2011 class, Nutt was fired roughly nine months later, with three games remaining in the season.

GoAfter further review, the player’s foot was down….Those probably aren’t exact words spoken by the referee from last year’s Ole Miss-Alabama game, but it’s all I remember from the brief silence that followed Senquez Golson’s interception.

They allowed 30 passing touchdowns which left them 28th in the league while only grabbing 11 interceptions resulting in a tie for 25th in the league....
