[caption id="attachment_198763" align="alignnone" width="737"]@jasonmcintyre @jasonmcintyre[/caption] It all began before the draft began.  A video tweeted from Laremy Tunsil's account show the Ole Miss offensive lineman smoking weed from a gasmask bong. If you thought that was bad, we're just getting started. The left tackle was perceived as the best pound-for-pound athlete in the draft.  If there wasn't a need for quarterbacks, he'd be the first overall pick.  Instead, he dropped to the Dolphins at #13.  Tunsil thought the social media nightmare was over, but it was just getting started.  Instagram messages between Tunsil and John Miller, an assistant A.D. and manager of Football Operations at Ole Miss, were released.  They do not bode well for Hugh Freeze's football program. Then Tunsil went to the podium for a post-draft press conference.  Unbelievably, he dodged ZERO questions.  He was so truthful about the situation that he had to be run off stage by unknown media relations personnel.  Before he was away from the mic, Tunsil confirmed that he received money from an Ole Miss football coach.   Tunsil sat out seven games this season for receiving impermissible benefits, but I think it's safe to say that the fury from Pandora's Box has been unleashed on an Ole Miss program that is already under NCAA investigation.
