McFarland's Uncle: J-Mac Wanted Texas ($)

17

The highlights, for those of you without subscriptions: 1. J-Mac's uncle says he expressed a desire to go to Texas and would have done so had it not been for his mother. 2. Kashemeyia Adams told the uncle the same story about not being able to reach Mack Brown. 3. John Outlaw says he has never encouraged a player to attend a specific school and that the Longhorn coaches were always completely professional. 4. Both the uncle and Jamarkus considered it a classy move by Texas to take a step back after realizing the recruitment was tearing apart the family. 5. Three sources corroborate the story that McFarland exaggerated the Texas party he attended. Amazing the things that come to light when reporters do actual reporting. Thayer Evans should be absolutely ashamed of himself, but of course won't be as an OU partisan. By the way, the movement of this whole story towards actual truth has indicated the complete and total inability of many people to think critically about articles of this nature. Yes, I mean you OU fans, and you, Dr. Saturday, and you, Chicago Sun-Times blog. What happened to critical thinking?
