OT - Bunting Letter Photoshop Admission

Submitted by Bombadil on April 27th, 2013 at 10:51 AM

There's been some speculation regarding the validity of Ian Bunting's letter from Mississippi State:



I've decided to come clean and admit that I, Bombadil, am guilty of creating this photoshop letter. The letter to Ferns is real but the letter to Bunting was created using an advanced computer program called Paint (formerly Paintbrushfor Windows). I apologize to any confusion the fake photos have created.

Original letter to Ferns.

Fake letter to Ian Bunting.


Another fake letter to Maurice Ways.

you might blend in rather well with the locals during your vacation to Bolivia.

We just need to know if you acted alone or do you have an accomplice?  I'm guessing RDT with all his SEC contacts might have helped you out.

haha, i like "you're TALL"!  i believed it until "yo mo"... that was too outlandish.  although did anyone see what Florida has set up for their recruits?  really embarassing.

All of the cards are real and of my own handiwork.  In fact, I'm actually the defensive coordinator for Mississippi State.

(Whew - it was good to get that off my chest after all these years.)

i thought that was obvious and yes it is very funny -- both the real letters an fakes.

too bad we don't usually have pitched recruiting battles wtih MSU. (?) cant figure out why michigan can not compete with ole miss for football recruits.

Mississippi State's letter to Ferns is a classic because it is simple and to the point, of course, and I agree that we should probably make a Photoshopped Mississippi State offer part of the "Hello" post. For contrast, North Carolina State, not to be outdone by the likes of the SEC....


Mmmm Hmmm

...years ago.  Can you imagine?

To Drew Dileo: "You're a threat"

To Jordan Kovacs: "You're gritty and heady"

To Thomas Gordan: "You've got prison abs" (explanation: http://mgoblog.com/content/2009-recruiting-thomas-gordon)

To Will Campbell: "You're big-boned"

To Denard: "You're shoes are untied" (for the grammar-lovers out there...you know whoever wrote the Ferns letter would mess that up)
