Actually no, I didn't spend an extra cent and found it much more comical than anything. In fact, I am not sure that you even factored into the recruiting equation as Missouri and I battled well above your pay grade, all you did was spend so that you could show up to give the appearance that you were in the running but with your bowl money, prestige and scholarships you had to offer, there was no way that you had a shot, which was the punchline. Apart from the punchline I am just trying to understand the logic but honestly, really don't care. I got a good laugh and played in a conference with chainsaw and figured that he would appreciate the laugh as well based on the string.
You take on SIM recruits when you probably didn't have to because you decided to go at distance against a local BCS team as well as an elite that was also closer in distance than yourself and you did all of this with the knowledge that they were both already on the player because after the first two cycles it was Missouri and LSU only to see mighty Miami (Ohio) show up later. It just defied logic as to why you would take on two SIM recruits and spend money in a battle you had no hope of winning. I posted primarily for the laugh I got when it happened knowing this running string and seeing such a rookie decision from a coach with as many seasons as you have.
