Down and Dirty....The life and crimes of Oklahoma Football

 

ESPN reported this week (Ivan Maisel) in the "3 - Point Stance" Column the following......

 

Southmoore (Okla.) High junior quarterback Kendal Thompson committed to sign with Oklahoma on Monday. He is the son of Charles Thompson, the quarterback whose arrest and conviction for selling cocaine helped bring an end to the Barry Switzer Era in Norman 20 years ago. By all accounts, Charles Thompson has reformed, and his son is an upstanding young man. But it is a little odd, no?

Charles Thompson after his prison time wrote the book "Down and Dirty"  which detailed the drugs, boosters, money, guns and rape that Switzer had let fester on his quest for more Oklahoma Football glory. How OU avoided the "death penalty" is a question for the ages.

I understand how ESPN can find this "a little odd"........I find it absolutely mind boggling.
