McKinney situation gets mucho weirder
James McKinney didn't trip to Oklahoma this weekend, he went to Louisville. And was asked to leave. Now it's a big he-said-she-said between McKinney, Bobby Petrino, and Captain Petulancy Brian Cushing. And Louisville is not in the picture anymore... apparently neither are OU or Miami. He's down to Michigan, Clemson, and Nebraska.
So this is sort of good because I think that means he's pretty much a UM lock... but it does raise some questions. I'm not going to leap to conclusions here, but I'd rather this never happened, obviously.
And silly people on messageboards who declare McKinney to be a bad seed or flake without any first hand knowledge of went on (ie, all of them) need to stop running around acting tough and looking like fools.
