The college football internet's favorite joke, only behind recommending Ron Prince for every possible leadership vacancy, is sending every available player to the Mississippi Rebels. Former coach Houston Nutt became infamous for setting up a kind of shelter for wayward players, but new coach Hugh Freeze hasn't quite earned the same -- WELL, HOW DO YOU DO?
Ex-Maryland QB Danny O'Brien and LT Max Garcia will visit Ole Miss on Tuesday.— Bruce Feldman (@BFeldmanCBS) March 19, 2012
O'Brien would appear to be still interested in playing for his former offensive coordinator, now head coach of the Vanderbilt Commodores. Penn St. Nittany Lions coach Bill O'Brien has confirmed he's interested in O'Brien (the younger). And Garcia was reportedly drawing interest from literally more than half of the SEC East.
But, really, is there anywhere besides Ole Miss that these players could've landed? I mean, it's not official yet, and they haven't even visited Oxford, but can't you just feel fate drawing them all together?
All God's people are already saying amen.
