HUGH FREEZE IS USING FISHING METAPHORS TO ANNOUNCE RECRUITING COMMITMENTS

HUGH FREEZE ONCE CAUGHT A RECRUIT "THIS BIG"

The "coaches using code words on Twitter to announce verbal recruiting commitments" has been a thing this off-season. There have been plenty of YESSIRs (Texas A&M) and BOOMs (Texas Tech) and HOODYHOOs (Les Miles, hopefully) to spread the phenomenon. Last week Andy Staples and reader Beck Barnes suggested that Hugh Freeze, who, along with the rest of his coaching staff had been going with the Milton Bradley approved "YAHTZEE" to announce commitments, should instead post bass fishing pictures every time the Rebels hooked a big one. As a man who appreciates a good fish metaphor as much as the next angler on the Sea of Galilee, Coach Freeze seems to have obliged the request.

Ole Miss picked up a commitment from Florence, Alabama duel threat quarterback Kendrick Doss this morning...and this was Hugh Freeze's tweet.

SEC Coaches using bass fishing metaphors to allude to recruiting successes has to have crossed the streams of Southern culture in some deeply unsafe and unstable way. If a dimensional portal opens over your house and begins spitting jacked dog-beasts that walk on their hind legs onto your neighborhood, you'll know you can blame Hugh Freeze for it. (And also expect him to show up, fishing pole in hand, to offer them scholarships.)
