Apparently getting #madonline can yield desired results if you pick the right target.
When St. Stanislaus quarterback Myles Brennan and some of his teammates were unable to garner serious recruiting attention from in-state Ole Miss, his coach Bill Conides launched a vitriolic rant against the Ole Miss staff, one that finished with the phrase ‘skull drug’. When Brennan was offered by and committed to LSU a month later, Conides felt validated in his critique.
Now he can feel even more in the right, with Ole Miss finally extending an offer to Brennan, who threw for more than 5,000 yards and 53 touchdowns as a junior.
According to Ole Miss’ SB Nation website Red Cup Rebellion, the road to an Ole Miss offer was paved by an initial apology to Conides by Ole Miss recruiting coordinator Dave Wommack. That good will apparently trickled down to Brennan, who made it clear he would now seriously consider Ole Miss, even if he isn’t stepping back from his commitment to LSU anytime soon.
“(Werner) said, ‘look, I apologize,'” Brennan told the Biloxi Sun Herald. “‘Obviously we waited a little long to offer, but you never know what’s going to happen with this recruiting process. We want to go ahead and offer you a scholarship. You’ll always have the opportunity to come play for Ole Miss. I just want you to give it some thought with your parents and if you ever want to change your mind or something happens you can come here.'”
