Ugly business

The New York Times college football blog, The Quad, has an interesting three-parter about the recruitment of stud defensive tackle Jamarkus McFarland.

In the end, it was a battle between Oklahoma and Texas (the Sooners won his commitment), but there were plenty of interesting stops along the way, like this one in Baton Rouge.

… Of the four universities, L.S.U. made the worst impression. After the Tigers lost to Georgia, 52-38, on Oct. 25, McFarland, his mother and his grandmother attended a catered meal at the home of Tigers Coach Les Miles.

“He was very dry,” Adams said of Miles.

I bet.

In the end, this one came down to one thing:  don’t mess with mama.

    Nothing worse than a dry corndog.

    Assistant coaches and coordinators earn every penny by having to deal w/ people like McFarland’s family.

    Coach Garner must have a world of patience and the ability to suffer fools well.

    Talk about patience, I hope for his sake the popcorn was good – at least – for Stoops during that Queen Latifah move (running time 119 minutes). Maybe there was an intermisson. LOL


  4. Nothing worse really.
