Man, Shea Patterson and his lawyer are working the media hard. Dennis Dodd reveals the contents of a nine-page letter Patterson wrote the NCAA in an attempt to justify being allowed to play immediately at his new home that begins, “I’m not going to hold anything back …”
I’m trying to feel the righteous indignation here, but my chuckling over this gem keeps getting in the way:
In his filing, Patterson said he found “a trustworthy, high-caliber coach” with “values, integrity and leadership qualities” in Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh.
“It doesn’t seem fair to me that the only thing standing in the way of Coach Freeze making $5 million a year at another school was the discovery that he wasn’t the trustworthy, straight-laced role model that he claimed to be,” Patterson states.
Bless your heart, Shea. It just now dawned on you that a college football coach isn’t always 100% straight with others?
