So I made the mistake of clicking over to 1130 on my ride home last night and Sharp was ripping State over the F. Smith reinstatement, but since no one cares about that he had to relate it to Michigan and Dorsey to get anyone to call. So I fell for the bait and called in.(I know I know it was stupid he baited me, but I thought I could pin him down on his hypocrisy). Essentialy his argument was Mich and MSU were too good for this type of thing and they should kick off any player with a problem or not allow kids with previous problems. So my take was that's fine, but you can't write any articles praising the SEC and crushing the Big Ten or calling for Dantonio's or RR's head if they struggle on the field because they will be working at a disadvantage.
His response to me was he has frequently praised the Big Ten for their ethics and not lowering their standards compared to the other conferences. I don't read the guy or the paper at all much anymore, but I would get the gist of his columns from the radio when a Stony and Wojo would debate it or when he used to be a part timer on the radio. For those that say they don't read it but actually do, is he telling the truth or did he just make that shit up?? The Sharp praising the Big Ten column didn't receive much attention if he actually wrote it in my world.
