I was reading this article today from Rittenberg:
And this passage caught my eye:
Tressel recalled how Pryor sent him a text message Monday night saying the team needed to provide a boost for junior wide receiver Taurian Washington, who dropped two passes against Navy. Pryor also sent Tressel a text after Ohio State's loss to LSU in the BCS title game, which read, "Don't worry about it, Coach. We're going to get it done in the future."
My radar went up. Obviously we don't know when Pryor sent that text message, although the way the passage is written would indicate it was sent the night or the day after the national title game in 2008. Which was around January 7.
All fine and good, except:
Pryor didn't commit until March and took a visit to Michigan on 1/18.
I guess Michigan was either wasting its time, or that text message story is a little lie-tastic.
