Lots of hurt feelings today from
ungrateful wretches kids who found out after they put their names on the dotted line that they were sold a bill of goods about their position coach.
Like Texas defensive line coach Chris Rumph, who’s now on his way to Florida… to replace a coach who’s now on his way to the NFL.
And then there’s Corch.
“There was a talk,” Meyer said. “I had a long conversation with him and so did Stan. We’ve got to move forward.”
Yes, I’m sure he does.
Kids, if you’re highly sought after recruits, here is some good advice you should consider.
Most of all, don’t rush. Signing day isn’t a deadline. As Roquan Smith’s coach knows, there’s plenty of time after signing day to pull the trigger. If that makes ESPN unhappy or some fans antsy, tough shit for them. You’ve only got your own lives to live.
It’s a corrupt process. We just learn about bits and pieces of the sleaze because sometimes it’s hard to keep every loose end under wraps. The bottom line is that recruits have little leverage in the process, because that’s how the system is gamed. And it’s why I have less and less sympathy for those who fret that giving kids greater freedom to move from one program to another would damage the sport. Like the status quo is something to cherish.
