I'd try with all your little might to continue screwing with him. There is ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with that situation. Heck, I think poaching is part of the game, but this doesn't even get close to poaching. What, the coach threw ONE scouting visit at the dude?
I propose a counter attack. Throw a couple scouts at guys in WV, call his bluff. If he goes after them, let him spend all his money and then come in and clean up his recruits.
I'd hate to be in a conference with that guy. However, if I was, I would try and beat his ***.
