One Mississippi high school football coach took to Twitter Wednesday to voice his frustration over Ole Miss not offering scholarships to his players.

In case you are wondering, skulldrug is another term for a beatdown. According to urban dictionary, it is the act of one being dragged by the neck, jaw, skullpiece or hair by another person or object.

“When you feel like your kid has been taken for a ride, you need to call it out,” Conides said. “I wasn’t trying to be mean or anything like that. If it means that none of my kids go to Ole Miss, then so be it.”

St. Stanislaus (Bay St. Louis, Miss.) quarterback Myles Brennan is rated as a three-star prospect by the 247Sports Composite. He has 15 offers to play at the next level, including one from Memphis and also has interest from Oklahoma State. St. Stanislaus tight end Chase Rogers is verbally committed to Tennessee and picked up an offer Wednesday from Mississippi State.

Brennan passed for 5,248 yards, 53 touchdowns and eight interceptions in leading the Rock-a-Chaws to a second-consecutive appearance in the Class 4A championship. Rogers led the team with 81 catches for 1,462 yards and 19 touchdowns.

“Why is that Wisconsin, California and Memphis and all these schools have come here, checked them out and recruited them,” Conides said. “Why haven’t they done that?”

There are several reasons why a particular school chooses not to offer a certain player. Position depth, height, weight, grades and skill level are just a few factors that college coaches and recruiters consider.

Ole Miss declined to comment.
