“It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.”

Mark Twain’s advice should be ringing in Bill Hancock’s ears right now.

… On the Sugar Bowl benefiting from Ohio State’s suspended players being able to play in the game: “I think even if those players had not played, the stadium was almost full and I think it would have been even if they hadn’t played. I think the national interest in the game would have still been the same. I just don’t buy that there was any benefit to the game significantly or to TV or to college football in general from them having been there as opposed to not playing.”

Delusional or cynical, take your pick.

Oversigning follow-up

Lots of impassioned comments to yesterday’s post speculating about whether Jim Delany can continue to sit on his hands about the oversigning practices which go on at many schools make me think these are a couple of links you’d be interested in checking out:

  • If you’re looking to do something, the Oversigning Cup may be right up your alley.
  • Judging from these responses, your typical multi-star recruit may not be as naïve as you think.


UPDATE: Michael Elkon speculates on my speculation.

“I understand the frustration.”

I don’t know if Greg McGarity has all the answers on the football front, but I can appreciate that at least he appears to be sensitive to the concerns of the fan base.

If nothing else, that sure as hell beats Bill Martin’s personal absolution and finger-pointing at the “Michigan family” over the failure of the RichRod hire.
