Allegations and recruiting

Up until now I didn't think the Clarret thing had hurt us at all, I now have to amend that opinion.
Disagree. IMO that is a kneejerk reaction to losing a kid we all wanted.

The focus is on one kid that POSSIBLY chose to go elsewhere due to the allegations, but what about the incredible players who chose to stay?

This is an example of how much damage the Clarett/Smith/ESPN stuff has done to tOSU. I live in the same media market as Rico and his parents and the coverage of tOSU has universally assumed that the ESPN stuff is true and indicative of a corrupt program.

If I didn't know the real story, and only knew what I saw on the media here in the East, I would't let my son go to tOSU either. Rico's dad said tOSU was where his heart was, but something overruled his heart. I'll bet is was parental pressure.

Wouldn't it be a sad irony for the McCoy family if UT got slapped with NCAA sanctions instead of tOSU?
