“We will use every avenue available to hold those accountable who tamper with our student-athletes,” Bjork said.

“As far as the limitations initially placed on the permission to contact, the restrictions are common,” the athletic department statement to Yahoo Sports said. “Until we were notified (Tuesday) morning, none of the student-athletes had communicated they were unhappy with those restrictions. Frankly, if they had any objections and a legitimate reason to seek transfer to one of the limited schools, we would ordinarily work through those issues with the student-athlete and his family. The student-athletes’ best interest is always the priority. Coach (Matt) Luke and (athletic director) Ross Bjork discussed the matter this morning. To be consistent, they are removing any restrictions on their permission to contact for all those who have requested permission. Our compliance office has reached out to the student-athletes to let them know.”

"Yes, we know, we got hammered by the NCAA, but we are going to try and fry anyone who is tampering with our players, even if they want to leave."

Mostly, there's some anger there and since Harbaugh was seen in Oxford this week, it makes him seem like the likely candidate for this to be directed at.

I'm also very confident that Harbaugh's knowledge or the person who is assigned to be Harbaugh's knowledge of the NCAA rulebook has assured him what he can and cannot do in this situation.

but I don't think the warning was directed at him. Tampering isn't best done in the open or by the head coaches themselves.  I don't think SEC schools worry about Harbaugh cheating. They worry about him finding legal approaches that they hadn't thought of or their own coaches are too lazy to use.

He used much of his statement talking about the contact restrictions they're lifting. None of them involved Michigan. They do involve some schools that they know cheat..

This seems to be directed at the other SEC schools who are (were?) restricted from contacting the Ole Miss players that requested their Permission to Contact.

Michigan would be ok here as we are not a “Limited School” (unless I read it wrong)...

WalterMitty, you've gotten a bit paranoid with your hunt for WD.

Read this guys post history and it's clear it's not him. Dual US/Cayman Island citizen (which makes sense with the username) and mentions having a son multiple times. Also, a completely different writing style from WD.

Is this guy off his meds or something? WTF is going on?

Don’t mention my family again - normally I would threaten to kick the living $hit out of you for bringing up my son, but you seem like a disturbed person so i will let it go. But don’t reply to any of my posts again or I will request that the mods delete your account.

I run two fantasy leagues with MGoBlog users so there are like 30 posters that know me.

Ok. Great. You run 2 fantasy leagues from "the Cayman Islands"... I didn't care about any of your silly characters until you created a despicable racist Black Face character, and I will certainly risk getting my account deleted bringing you down. But the guys are right, I need to bring hard evidence, so I'll leave you alone until I got you.

No one gives a rat's ass about your virtue signaling about racist trolls. Everyone hates racists. You are not some bat signal in the sky inspiring us all. You have goddamm zero proof that that franklin asshat was WD. Or any other troll account is him, for that matter.

Not sure why this [email protected] @sshat thought it was weird that I was running two CFB fantasy football leagues for the MGoBlog community...

Someone attacked my family (even my 10 year old son), called my a racist and announced on the board that they were going to stalk me to find out I was some person they don't like. 

I basically put up my personal Twitter account as proof that I am not this "WD" character that Walter Mitty has a boner for.  I thought I would get an apology once I put up my posts but got nothing - so who even knows if I am still being stalked.

So WD comes out with an email from DB that gets blasted all over the place and may or may not have had a hand in bringing him down. WD then gets a bloated sense of self-worth from this.
Waltermitty apparently outed WD or some other duplicate account? I have no idea because it was probably a big bag of nothing. But now waltermitty has a bloated sense of self-worth because he outed some trolls.
Waltermitty is indeed WD.

Last night conversation with the wife who got home late:

Wife: Did you make dinner for the kids?

Me: No. Got Burger King. Two whoppers for $6.00!

Wife: Did they take showers?

Me: Not sure. Don't think so.

Wife: Did they do their homework?

Me: Maybe?

Wife: What did you do? 

Me: Trying to prove that Blue in Paradise is WD. See, he got Franklin banned, so that I couldnt keep combing through his posts to prove who he really was, and now he can keep posting about Shea, and Mo, and Oline worries, OSU, and anything else he wants under his other users!

Wife: (Long Pause) And this is important, how?

Me: Oh, It's very important. Very Important!!

Wife: (Longer pause) You are not going to hit your sales quota for the quarter, are you?

Me: Um, ..No, probably not.

And to get this psychopath to stop stalking me, I have added a link to my Twitter page.  You can see very clearly who I am and where I live.

I even added a video of my son playing beach football with a guy from the Richmond Spiders basketball team who were down here for the infamous Cayman Invitation tournament a couple of weeks ago.

I can't believe that you didn't apologize to me after I put up my personal information as proof that you psychopathic investigation was dead wrong.

That's nice, so you trash my family, including MY 10 YEAR OLD SON, and call me a racist for absolutely no reason and then when I put the goods to prove you wrong, you can't even come back and say sorry.

You are a POS scumbag that needs to psychiatric help.
