A Sun Belt Team? Ouch...

Bruce Feldman, a writer for ESPN and the author of "Meat Market: Inside the Smash-mouth World of College Football Recruiting," was recently interviewed by to give his insight on their recent hiring of Ed Orgeron. Feldman spent an extended amount of time in Oxford observing El Recruitzilla himself as research for Meat Market and, as such, has a pretty good understanding of the Ole Miss athletics administration. In the interview, he had this to say:

Ole Miss has nice facilities, but you are talking about Tennessee, you are not busing 6 hours to an away game. In some ways, I think Ole Miss partly from the athletic director is almost run like a Sun Belt conference school, whereas I think you are talking about Tennessee and the financial commitment they have made to the staff, but also just in terms of what the program is.

Damn you, Pete. How's the baseball expansion of yours coming, by the way? Oh, really, it's way behind schedule? Shocking.
