An idiot writes an article

Did anyone proof read this?

Rhode is basking three kids who want out of their Letter of Intent, after finding out that OU has been recruiting kids illegally. “When you give your word, plan to keep it” is the title of his article. Later in the article Rhode praises Coach Capel for being a man of his word. Didn’t Capel break his word with VCU to leave them to go to OU.

I don’t blame Capel, it was an obvious choice. However, saying that he is a man of his word, and implying that the three recruits who want a release from their LOI are not “men of their words” is ludicrous. Are Leech, Mangino, and Mike Stoops men of their words? Yes, they simply positioned themselves better by going somewhere else.

Rhode is putting more spin on this situation than is being put on the “Peterson driving a Lexus” situation.
