For a guy who supposedly will work with anybody, Hop sure doesn't win much.

Re: The witch hunt has started.

Bennett’s agenda is about to destroy USM. Hop and his staff deserve better and should move on immediately.

Re: The witch hunt has started.

The Athletic story is dramatic shit.  These people like West are all around us, enrolled at schools everywhere, not even just athletics.  Maybe she should become a real journo and do some work to find out just how many citizens have been convicted of shit and stiff participate in society.  She wouldn’t be shocked anyway because I am quite certain she probably already knows someone with that background.  They are likely in her family for that matter, who knows.

The next “story” is just some dickhead driveling on about nothing and using other cocksuckers’ stories as sources.  Pretty pathetic.

She wrote the damning Hop story yesterday for the USA Today. She is in full attack mode on him. She’s made it her goal to ruin him for the Briles move.

Hop went into this knowing he had these things in his past. That's stupid, and regardless of what Bennett did Hop should have known better.

If SB Nation is right, and Hop jumped into this whole thing on his own, *knowing* he'd flirted with having rapists on his team in the past, then Hop not only acted stupidly, he was also insubordinate.

As for Bennett, he should have known about these things in Hopson's past. If he didn't, that's bad. If he did and still let this Briles thing get started, that's bad... but I doubt that.

I suspect Bennett knew Hop was playing footsie with Briles, but didn't know about these newly unearthed issues with Hopson's past. These issues make it impossible for USM to move on and put the Briles thing in the past. Bennett is probably furious at Hopson for that, and rightly so.

(None of this is to say that I think Hopson or Briles did anything morally wrong. They're football coaches, not security guards or guidance counselors.)

Re: The witch hunt has started.

Witch-hunt is on......  statement makes it clear initially Staff was unaware. All in the wording leading up to the facts.

Auerbach reports that West withheld this information from his superiors during recruiting, and that it was only when a member of the athletic department happened to read about West in a Dallas Morning News story that he was denied admission, despite having already signed a letter of intent

Interesting?!?  Wonder who in the university shared this so quickly

Frickin' deja vu all over again. Hop's probably toast. Maybe Billings can be HC.

Re: The witch hunt has started.

If there's not a statement from Dr. B tomorrow defending/supporting Hop, then I don't
much like his chances of making it through this weekend.

Re: The witch hunt has started.

Witch hunts are a real phenomenon. But this is the young man Hop tried to sneak into USM just a few weeks ago:

https://www.dallasnews.com/news/crime/2 … nife-point

There's a lot to unpack here... "foot fetish" activities, for starters. The dude got shot in the arm a few months later. There were two alleged rapes committed with a knife. In one case, the victim was "nicked" by the knife. At least one victim was an "escort."

To recruit this guy and not be forthcoming about all of this does anyone associated with USM a disservice. To do that, get busted, and then bring in Art Briles just weeks later is really just incredible.

Re: The witch hunt has started.

Again, these stories are shit.

If you think anyone that knows every detail is going to give up information to some out of town half-cocked journo, you are very naive.  Maybe good ole Sonja is leaking info but I even doubt that she is 100% in the loop.  There’s probably about 5 people completely in the loop: Bennett, Hop, Bower, Duff, Mitchell, and Morrison.  (M&M count as one)

Actual investigative journalism with sources in the know ceased to exist about 25 years ago.  Now it’s all agenda driven.  And while I believe Rodney has an agenda, I don’t believe he is leaking anything right now other than trying to keep himself clean and out of the spotlight.  In a week, this will all be forgotten in the media because there’s just nothing here.  Keep in mind, this script could (and should) be flipped.  Without getting completely political, who the fuck do you think created the “thug” class?  Easy answer, politicians mostly from the Democrats and lately the Republicans too (insert Establishment hacks here).  For Hop to recruit and/or sign kids from troubled areas with troubled pasts, he is demonstrating that he believes in the justice system and giving second chances to people.  I believe he does it after talking to them extensively and deciding they have dedicated themselves unto the Lord.  It does happen you know.  And every liberal politician in the country (when given the chance) will stick up for someone from a high-crime area because they lack “white-privilege” or any privilege for that matter.

Hop is a better man than I...if it were my decision, I wouldn’t recruit anyone with a history of shit.  Not coaches or players.  And I was for the Briles hire just because I think we are basically at the end of the road at USM.  I just wanted to pour some peroxide on Briles so he couldn’t infect Scottie, use him for a year or two, and let him move on for his millions.  And I have zero faith in Bennett in any capacity to truly lead every facet of our university.  (He’s just another shit hire like all the others starting with AKL)

But I say all that to say again, Bennett doesn’t have the balls to fire Hop.  If he buckles to some outside libtard pressure and does it, he is the biggest fool in the state and will be out of a job in less than a year.  Firing Hop would effectively kill the donor base in one day...me included.

Sb nation is wrong. Bennett knew from the beginning. USM flew thd guy in for the interview. He changed his story when the press and professors jumped on him. He could have said no from the start.

Re: The witch hunt has started.

The persecution of Hop is fueled mainly by his outspoken Christianity.

Maybe there were some errors on Hop's part, maybe there weren't, but what we do know is that the leader of our University put out hasty public releases to the press and students that were red flags, and havoc ensued.

If Hop goes, Bennett goes.


We still suck bigtime.

Ace...

Bennett knew but SB is not wrong.... the 'anonymous source' that leaked the 'he came in for a landing without getting clearance from the tower' BS story is the one that is wrong.

Patty Magee's hatchet job BS story is wrong.  How does that guy keep a job?


Everyone has the right to be stupid... It's just that some people abuse the privilege.
