Meanwhile, the Wizard of Odds has a piece up that suggests that Superman himself may have committed a (minor) recruiting violation in speaking to Moore during the process. Of more interest to me is that Smith is starting to backtrack on her story.
But Smith was telling a different story on Wednesday. This account from the Miami Herald’s website:
” ‘[Meyer] never called me personally,’ Smith said. ‘Carl sometimes didn’t have his phone or his phone would get cut off. So, he had given Coach Meyer my number and [Moore told Meyer], “If you call my number and I don’t answer or it goes to voice mail, call Maranda because I’ll be with her more than likely,” and that’s how he got a hold of Carl.’ ”
“Smith said on Wednesday that she ‘never talked to Coach Meyer about life or anything for more than two seconds.’ Smith said that Meyer would call her and then ask to speak with Moore.”
That’s certainly a convenient explanation.
I still think this is nothing more than a tempest in a teapot. A sign that it’s becoming more serious: if the media starts referring to this as “Moore-gate”.
You gotta watch out for those “gate” suffixes.
