It all started with this article in the New York Times. I read it when it came out and said to myself, "Self, this can't be true. Why would a school give free illegal drugs to athletes? And why does this crazy mom contradict herself?"
Then it comes out that at least part of the story is a lie. In fact, Jamarkus made up a lot of the stuff for an English paper. He implies that the writer, Thayer Evans read the paper and lifted the story without so much as asking Jamarkus if it was a piece of fiction. So, either the kid is a liar or the reporter is a hack. Or maybe both.
Then it comes out that Thayer is the same guy that wrote the article on Darrell Scott that was later questioned for its accuracy.
Yes, I have been relishing in my Texas Bowl win and reliving the 9 other wins that went along with it. And also celebrating the transfer of Sam McGuffie to Rice.
Yes, I agree that Thayer is a hack and irresponsible.
Yes, I agree that Jamracus and mom have not shown much class/integrity... trying to not focus on that. Instead trying to focus on the fact that Jackie Shipp was the only one with any class in the article. And trying to convince myself that while 80% of the article is fabricated, that the part about Mack bragging about the size of his house is true - not convinced yet...
