Not that I really care what this guy thinks, but that's a pretty ridiculous thing to say IMHO.

Well, considering the writer doesn't know why Mack pulled the plug on the RSJ recruitment, it really doesn't matter what he thinks, does it?
And if the reason for the plug-pulling is because there are certain types of games Mack and Texas simply will not play, that works for me.
obviously, that's not what the SEC teams do - they're part of the problem in recruiting.
who the hell is that in a picture? Someone really wore that hat when they signed with A&M? That's just sad.
also, if Texas wasn't a "big-time program", it wouldn't have the luxury of walking away from a talent like RSJ only to turn around and sign another blue-chip prospect.
The writer doesnt have a clue, and surprised to see that Mike Farrell doesnt either. Of course SEC teams wouldnt back off a talent like RSJ, even if his coach or his dad asked that bags of money be delivered to him at his high school. There is nothing but presumption with no information in that article. Rivals annoys me to no end

Nothing like a crap article without the writer's name on it

This. Good rebuttal to the story.

My question is, are those ketchup/mustard bottles to the right of him (his left)? I've never heard of such with any school on them.
just noticed that his mom is doing the hookem as she signs his LOI..
Mike Farrell is a HUGE reason why that place has gone to shit. Outside if the entertainment value of the mainboard, the entire rivals network is pretty useless.
From the article..."Would any SEC team back off a kid this talented? Would USC?"
No, but the problems created by those very schools is why Texas has bailed out.

Question. The writers for 247 have know the actual story don't you? I don't expect you to share it with the world....in fact that would go against some confidential sources I would imagine, and you would not want to burn those....
"Auferre, trucidare, rapere, falsis nominibus imperium; atque, ubi solitudinem faciunt, pacem appellant".
This is stupid and lacking logic. It could be worked in both ways. Would a big time program back off a big time receiver or beg him? We do not beg and we showed it! Proud of Mack to go the good route. All the bad things come out one day or another. I would much rather play fair, work hard, and win championships! Rather than cheat, win championships, and have them taken away later on (cough, cough, USC... cough cough, Auburn, cam newton pay for play.... cough, cough, alabama, nick satan in the near future.... cough, cough, SECHEATS!!)
Mike Farrell is a stupid twat.
Mike obviously doesn't grasp the reasoning.

Mike Farrell's career just wasn't the same after MASH.
"I've heard some of our fans say, 'We were always an SEC school. We just didn't know it," athletic director Bill Byrne said.
You should go to the source material.
Hilariously the paragraph concerning RSJ comes under the heading "Deep Thoughts."
I would think depth of thought would require some discussion of the possible rationale rather than positing the superficial question whether SEC or USC would back off a talented kid.

Thats hilarious. Of course the programs that will pay players or handlers would keep recruiting him. That's what they do.
I'd rather have Rhodes than RSJ anyway unless he realized he should be playing Tight End or Defensive End.
I must of missed something, What big time recruit did we get when we walked away from RSJ?
Yeah, it's exactly the opposite. Texas can walk away because it's big enough to absorb the "loss," not because it's out of its league.

It's not what they call you, it's what you answer to.
