    Reverend wants revenge.

    Who to cheer for? Tough choice.

    He can seek advice from spiritual advisor Cecil Newton.

    Hey, if he is an honest man, he should sue.

    The problem with that is there is that ever so slight possibility that he is not an honest man. :)

    I think he has no idea what would happen to him if the courts got involved.

    I'm rooting for it. I for one would love to see his church's fundraising and appropriations receive a full public accounting.

    I also think Southern Miss, Texas and Oklahoma are on lines one, two and three asking him to shut the fuck up.

    Which, if he accepted a payoff from them to stop bitching could be extortion, right?

    I'll bet ESPN's lawyers are better than his

    They never got into why he was pushing So. Miss. And the way the doc was cut - with him explaining (poorly) what happened to Dupree's money - would seem to absolve ESPN from any claims.
    The guy is looking to get paid. Again.

    And probably will.

    I found the interviews with the various recruiters the most interesting.

    "There's always an uncle."

    I'm kind of surprised we haven't seen a longtime assistant coach write a book about what really goes on with recruiting. I'm sure there is some word or phrase like "so and so needs some "convincing."" that is passed along to someone outside of the program who takes care of things.
    I'm surprised more news isn't leaked by various programs who get "out-convinced" by another program. Must be like nukes - mutally assured destruction.

    The uncle ... the preacher ... the guardian ... the advisor ---- watch out for all of 'em!

    No one would do that, because they always think they're going to get another job, and don't want to be blackballed from the old boys' network.

    The NCAA's statute of limitations on major violations runs out after five years, so even if one of those schools gave DuPree $5 million back in 1982, they couldn't be touched.
