Off the field, I've always been a bit skeptical - yes he's good with discipline when it's Marcel Frost or Erik Haw or James Scott or some other non-contributor ... but he has allowed far too many star players to tarnish his reputation, going all the way back to Ray Isaacs at YSU, and of course MoC, Troy, and now Pryor here at tOSU. I do believe that JT is a high character guy in most respects, but it does appear that he has occasional bouts of wilfull ignorance, especially when an irreplaceable player is concerned.
Bingo. Great post LJB, you summed up my thoughts very well. I was just having the same conversation earlier this afternoon with my brother.
I read those emails tonight and come away with mixed feelings. My initial thought is that JT's presser tonight did a nice job of covering all those emails from a legal standpoint. When all else fails, play the ignorant card. Mind you, I have slept 4 1/2 hours in the past day......so my thoughts are a bit jaded.
