Help us pick the top stories of 2013 >>
"Some of the stories may have been embellished, some of the one-liners polished a bit to get maximum laughs from the crowd. And some of the assertions — like the one that quarterback signee Riley Ferguson has lost only two games in his life dating to Pop Warner ball — are difficult to verify."
I see that Mr. Woodberry is beginning to get wise to Jone's tendency to exaggerate.
"Best coaching staff in the USA." "UT was always my dream job." "saw UT play growing up.""We don't go by stars." "We have our own evaluation system." etc, etc.
B.S. artists are easy to find. Arkansas had one who got caught---but he could recruit and compete with coaches at the highest levels.
At UT maybe it would be a good thing to cut the B.S., stop the exaggerations and just perform.
Next year, if Jones recruits players with lots of stars, or if the class's ranking is high, he'd better not mention it.
He has already painted himself into a corner.But you can bet that he has always wanted to be in that corner, and it's the best corner in the USA.
