A little Internet digging alludes to references to Cleve being inappropriately linked to a Texas Angel. Cleve Bryan allegedly makes over a quarter million per year to be Mack Brown's right hand man, and books team hotels on road trips. If this were an isolated case, then Bryant's leave of absence might be a brush-off cover-up of an isolated event.
The introduction of California attorney Gloria Allred makes this juicy. Gloria is an ambulance chaser for discrimination against women, and someone who seeks the lime light of celebrity implosions. She's a Mary Keegan, Nancy Pelosi and TMZ all rapped into an SNL skit.
Useful to Buffs fans, WR coach Bobby Kennedy's name has popped up as potentially linked to this investigation, which potentially explain why his services as a coach are being made available to the likes of CU and other programs.
Here's some links on the subject.
If BK is on the list of potential assistants, Embree would be wise to get this vetted.
we'll see what happens, there's a reason UT went on probation far less than it's SWC mates. a legal, political infra-structure throughout the state composed of alums and horn "fans".
While it would be fun, in a strange way, to watch another program suffer the way CU's has--and even better when it's in the conference that we're departing--there's no way I can root for Gloria Allred.
She's been linked with maybe a few legitimate causes, but her head will pop up a few times a year (on Larry King usually) with some woman who has no way been victimized. Really, Tiger Woods' mistress/porn actress was unfairly treated and has a case against him? Give me a break.
This is bullsh1t.
Doesn't matter to me if a few people behave inappropriately. Punish the people that engage in illegal or despicable behavior but don't try to bring down an entire program.
If you try to bring down a program like texas, you will get 2 polarizing sides that will defend to the death and the important issues will be lost in the shuffle.
If KKKeenan went after the 2 recruits instead of brandishing the entire CU football team, she might have had some success.
why cant this kind of stuff happen to nebraska?? u probably just cover it better!! :lol::lol:
Really? Lawrence Philips? An SI article which states that local police believe that nebraska's program is above the law--including the frequently referenced "felony gun incident", Mo Purify's many incidents, a player in a club sexually assaulting (penetrating) a female (whose father was a major booster, if I remember correctly) with the charges suddently and quietly dropped.
Look, if you've got enough support, it will disappear. nebraska has the credentials for scandal (probably most schools do) but if it hasn't happened, it's not going to.
read the Omaha or Lincoln papers on-line***.....compare to the DP or old RMN's view of CU (see the latest Henderson thread). NU can do no wrong and there is very little contact with the outside world (no nearby major media markets that care about the Huskadoos). no criticism nearly ever. any outside challenge to Husker hegemony is met with outrage, feigned innocence and claims of invisible conspiracy. it's all about selling papers to the NU faithful who like to smell their own polyester inflected farts. all they want is the constant re-assurance that they are more special, more virtuous, and the best darn football team ever with the most knowledgeable rootin', tootin' fans the world has ever known. it's puffery 95% of the time.
***no longer relevant to us, woot!
That's pretty much what I was trying to say--just not nearly as well.
of course, i just generalized your premise into it's larger context. there could never be a media-driven, perception is reality scandal in Lincoln....like we had. there's isn't the environment where the frenzy could feed on itself. too many core elements of "the cultural apparatus" would militate against it (even contrary to fact, as we've seen with Dr. Tom's image never, ever tarnished)....instead of hit it like an 8 foot crack-pipe like our "sports journalists" whose only other local contributions at the time were setting records for eating free grub at the Broncos buffet and being Shanahan sycophants 90% of their waking hours. bang on CU like a drum, and hey!....you look you have some critical acumen and journalistic integrity.
I think now is the time to make up stories about Texas recruits mothers getting jobs in banks in Austin along w/ their signatures. Ya?
Yep - time to pile on. I remember being in Vegas with my wife when the "scandal" broke - and spent a lot of my time talking down morons around the craps table about the fact that CU was not cheating as everyone immediately concluded. I swear- the average person out there assumed we hired hookers for every single recruit based upon the way the story was broke nationally.
Anyhow, our glory days were built on the backs of a down Texass, USC, etc. and I have no problem piling on for the potential benefit of the Buffs. :smile2:
Well, from what I've read in this thread so far, it sounds like an indiscretion between a 63 year old guy and a 19 year old student, right? So, I say her dad should go remove the old guys testicles.
That's where it stood last October, and was isolated. What the recruit site is suggesting is that the issues in the Texas athletic department run much deeper than that one incident.
Maybe it's nothing, but the suggestion is that it's much bigger than Cleve Bryant's role.
i'm sure Chip Brown and Geoff Ketchum are hard at work getting the truth out to clear UT's unfairly soiled image.
no need to.... the 19 year old probably sucked them off by now.....
ummmm... as far as I knew.... 19 is legal..... even in Texas...... if she was forced into it..... then it is rape.....
Aren't Texas Angels simple groupies (prostitutes) to help recruits decide on tu?
The Longhorn football brand has gotten way bigger than what it really is. There's a "bubble" that will pop. I remember when CU was roughly on par with them, maybe Texas seemed 10% bigger.
Now you have 20 million people that will buy anything that puffs up Texas football. That's where the money is, so you didn't hear a whole lot about their pathetic losing season with eighty "five star" players on the roster. If I ran college football journalism, that would be front page every day; "Texas Collapses, Worst Failure in History".
I hope Gloria Alred gets all their money and they have to sell their stadium to a women's soccer league. It's the only way, because the NCAA doesn't **** people up bad now. They just take a few schollies at worst. Also, how bout criminal charges for Coach Brown, and the judge ordering they change the brand to the Texas Shorthorns.
Didn't a couple of "Angels" show up at a high school game of a recruit a couple of seasons ago?
Yes. They are assigned players to show around campus on their visits (whether official or unofficial is unknown to me) and then maintain close ties to the current team and coaching staff as well. All part of the myriad of quasi-Greek "spirit organizations" at the school. I would liken the Angels to what cheerleaders or drill team do for high school football players, giving them mums and gifts and the like throughout the season. Or, you can just call them groupies. That fits too.
Gloria Allred is Satan's weekend crack-ho. She is such a self serving prostitute for media attention that she makes Tiger Wood's whores look like Mother Teresa. She is a soulless evil scum sack of maggot infested goblin dung.
She and UT belong together.
Exactly that is why I like that she's on texas's trail! That bitch can **** your world up!! She can shame Texas football into the next century if she hits a home run.
So, you're saying this could get interesting.
i stand in awe of this phrase. great work sj, rep delivered!!
Mack has Samsung flatscreens in every room in his house, including the toilet closet.....what else does he need?
The question is, is Mack's house nicer than Bob Stoops' and Les Miles' houses?
Hand jobs from Texas Angels?
