I understand that opinions are like a**holes and that everyone has one. However, I typically expect that the person holding such opinion would have the slightest exposure to the subject of their opinion.You can imagine my surprise when I read an article from Jennifer Floyd Engel from the Fort-Worth Star Telegram, which sits along side the Dallas Morning News as the two major newspapers in the Dallas Metroplex area. Jennifer is a Mizzou grad who started covering the Dallas Stars and has branched out into other areas for the paper and sports radio. Having previously spent 12 years in the Dallas area, my opinion of her has already been formed, but this part of her unhinged Big 12 rant even surprised me.
"However, whatever, just beat them. Send Nebraska to the Big Ten, or whatever name E. Gordon Gee decides to slap upon that league, with a big fat reminder that their Big 12 legacy was never all that impressive and they will barely be missed at all.
Remind Nebraska why it was never the bellwether team of this conference and why it will not be in the Big Ten. Show the Huskers what Wisconsin and Ohio State and possibly Michigan (if Jim Harbaugh replaces that slimy little RichRod) will do to them."
Apologies for not knowing how to put the above in a nice box. Pretty strong words for someone at a major newspaper who has no horse in the race in regards to Michigan and I strongly doubt has ever met RR. Slimy? F*ck off random sports writer in Texas. This is ridiculous. At least teenage recruits don't read newspapers anymore. Feel free to spam [email protected] star-telegram.com or call 817-390-7697, your choice.
