The ultimate negative recruiting move?

If this is true, it may be.


UPDATE:  Gory details here.

Texas Coach Tom Herman, a former Ohio State assistant coach, tipped sports reporter Brett McMurphy to details of the Zach Smith-Courtney Carano Smith relationship that led to Smith’s firing, Urban Meyer’s paid-administrative leave and the investigation that has currently engulfed the Buckeyes’ program, several sources told me.

Furthermore, Tom and wife Michelle Herman encouraged Courtney Smith to go public with her claims that her ex-husband had physically abused her, sources say.

“They wanted Zach Smith fired,” one source said. “They had some dirt on him and wanted him off of Ohio State’s staff.”

The Hermans have even helped pay for Courtney Smith’s legal fees, two of my sources told me.


UPDATE #2:  As if there aren’t already enough twists and turns in this story…

You mess with the bull, you get McMurphy.


UPDATE #3:  Oh, mama.


UPDATE #4:  All this, on an offseason Saturday.

I’m about to run out of popcorn.


UPDATE #5:  Tom Herman speaks!


UPDATE #6:  Aaaaaaaand, Tom Herman’s wife wins the Internets today.

Handled with care

If I may borrow from another insurance ad, it appears that Jake Fromm was in good hands last season.

We may owe a few Dawg receivers apologies, gang.

Oh, **those** papers.

In case you had any doubts about whether Art Briles is scum…

Top Baylor University administrators discussed sexual assault allegations against Tevin Elliott and put potential disciplinary action on hold months before the then-football player raped another student, according to emails and other documents filed Thursday in a Title IX lawsuit against the school.

Art Briles, the former head football coach fired in May 2016 during the school’s sexual assault scandal, handed over the documents late last month in response to a subpoena from lawyers representing 10 women suing the school.

Emails included in a filing Thursday reveal administrators with oversight of student conduct discussing allegations against Elliott in October 2011, shortly before he raped a then-Baylor student in April 2012. Elliott is serving a 20-year prison sentence after being convicted of sexual assault in the case in January 2014.  [Emphasis added.]

That’s why you sue assholes.  Otherwise, you never find out what they’ve been up to.

“Yep, Georgia.”

Another reason to celebrate both Kirby’s recruiting prowess and Paul Johnson’s recruiting ineptitude:

Not only has Georgia finally made the necessary leap to pull away from this second-tier group, but also has earned the right to be considered one of the elites when it comes to recruiting. The rankings will change some as recruits play their senior seasons, but this is a significant upward trend and great news for the schools which recruit in the Peach State.

Welp, almost all the schools…
