OT- Oversigning jihad info at Doc Sat, re: Ole Miss

Over on Doc Sat's Headlinin today (http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/blog/dr_saturday/post/Headlinin-8217-A-cold-exit-for-Bobby-Lowder-?urn=ncaaf-wp1613#remaining-content) in addition to the "Palpatine is dead!" like excitement over Bobby Lowder finally giving up (nominally) his throne at Auburn, is this lilttle nugget about oversigning extraordinare, Houston Nutt of Ole Miss:

"Not including the 2011 class, the Rebels signed a whopping 92 players to letters of intent over Nutt's first three seasons (2008-10). Less than 50 of that number remain on the current roster for 2011, a staggering attrition rate that could easily exceed 50 percent by the end of the year."

So Nutt not only signed more recruits than the 85 person limit, he did it in a three year span! And now perhaps as many as 50% of the recruits could be gone? How is this not the roadside IED to get the NCAA to do something about oversigning or putting more teeth in the APR? I know Brian wrote about APR earlier this week and maybe that is the solution, but how is Ole Miss not in the APR equivalent of hell? They were 110th in APR in 2010, and this attrition can't help the number. This to me is more egregious than Saban, since at least Saban had the decency to get a lot of his shitty players on med schollies-- I'm pretty sure the guys leaving Ole Miss aren't sticking around school to get their degrees while they recieve medical treatment if you catch my drift.

Really I just wanted to use Grimes and Nutt in the same sentence cause it sounds kinda naughty. But also there's this article referenced by Bruce Feldman in an ESPN Insider article:

Looks like our old friend Tony Grimes was potentially suspended for some academic hijinx or another. Apparently our awesome luck with DB's extends to one-time recruits who were paid chose to play elsewhere?
