“This is not about football,” Christian says. “It’s about how you treat a student athlete.”

Yeah, suuuure it is.

You’ve got to love the irony in this:

… Christian describes the suit as “taxpayer action” and argues taxpayer money was wasted because White failed to do his job. [Emphasis added.] The suit wants White to order a “good faith, full, complete and independent” investigation into the e-mail sent to Mustain. It also seeks an injunction to stop Sugg from paying White, who it alleges is in breach of his contract. It also seeks an injunction to stop White from paying any member of the football coaching staff “who are failing, or have failed, to carry out their mandatory contractual obligations.”

… These days, Freedom-of-Infomania is all the rage in Fayetteville. The university has received so many FOI requests in recent months, White says, it has had to hire an additional attorney. [Emphasis added.]

The capper?

“It’s a feeding frenzy out there,” says White, who is trying to conduct a search for an athletics director amid this environment. White is handling the search himself. He says he is putting nothing in writing and is not using his university cellphone.
