10.Aug.2015 Marcus McMaryion Situation
Funny how Connor is blowing this up on twitter. What a loser.
So this is what is happening:
I made my prediction in March.
I just finished watching video of all 7 qbs.
McMaryion will definitely be the starter.
I took a ton of heat for it all summer. I also read report after report from mainstream media that it was a two horse race. Started to believe it, but held out hope MM would make a move in the Fall. That’s where I stood, and it was consistent.
BUT, after I tried to get a pass from Fenk, people inside OSU reached out to me and offered to give me information here and there. I used that information to write practice reports. Some of it required reading between the lines in order to protect sources, etc, and maybe I read between the lines wrong, but my interpretation of these nuggets was that MM was not performing well and essentially out of the race. I wrote the practice reports because you guys, fans, like them and were bummed Silver and the guys wouldn’t be reporting this year. But they aren’t my observations. They are my interpretations of others observations, media reports, and nuggets people send me. My observations were based off the film since that’s the only time I saw these guys play. And I put that in print back in March.
One more thing to say on this: I did become somewhat biased and believe that Collins and Mitchell were the only choices. But this was recent. Very recent. Like maybe after Media Day when they basically crowned Seth the starter during the interviews. Sources told me Mitchell looked better, though, so that’s what I wrote in the reports. Nobody was telling me positives about MM. So yeah, I became biased and figured it was between those two QBs, and I was wrong about MM. I was actually getting ready to have to write a post saying I was wrong about MM, because that was the deal — the dissenters told me I was nuts, and I said I’d agree to admit I was wrong. Well, I was getting ready for that post based off everything I was being told. I might still have to, because at this point he is not the starter. He’s just catapulted himself into the mix [which is what I was expecting and hoping for before Fall camp].
I’m not at practice, so I have to rely on the astuteness of those who are, and also interpreting information.
That’s the reality here. Connor is bitter because I told everyone to boycott his shit paper because their past narrative (nobody wants to coach in Corvallis, impossible to recruit to Corvallis) was also entirely wrong. Is it any surprise they had this story totally wrong? Nope.
I was the only outlet with the balls to call MM. Why? Because I watched him and can spot talent.
