Jacksonville radio personality goes sleazy.......

(NOTE: This piece was written on Thursday morning. It was put on a back burner and left as a draft in the hopes that no major outlets would even pick up the claims made by a Jacksonville radio host regarding defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt’s move from Florida State to Georgia. Now that The Orlando Sentinel has followed up the story with FSU folks shooting down the slanderous comments, we’re posting it. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has also picked up the story.)

I don’t know Rick Ballou. I don’t know his morals. I don’t know his history. I don’t know if he gives to charity. I don’t know if he obeys all traffic signals. I might have done a phoner on his radio show at one time or another — I know I’ve been on his station — but that hardly gives me any insight into the man’s character or his personal life. I do know his co-host from radio and he’s always been a very solid guy to me.

I hope Jeremy Pruitt, after recruiting season is over and he can pay attention to the little scumbag in Jacksonville, will sue that radio station out of business. For him to make these scurrilous and slanderous accusations that even FSU felt obliged to deny after Pruitt had moved on to Georgia is the height of irresponsibility. It calls into question his ability to make sound decisions or to base any comments on fact rather than fiction. Jeremy Pruitt, call your lawyer! Rick Ballou, see you in court.

I didn’t read the article, but why move laterally from the National champion to Georgia?

Why throw mud on his personality for doing so? Maybe because Puruitt grew up in Alabama and originally coached at Bama, he wanted to go back to an SEC team? Maybe?

We had a little scandal with OU and Arkansas at the orange bowl. Story has it a senior coach gave our game plan to ARK coach out.of.revenge for an affair his wife was having with another senior coach.

The only time we have a church split is when OU plays Arkansas.

Arkansas has been doing so bad I’ve threatened to move five miles east to be in OU territory.

Is this article really about some coach moving from one college to another?

I don’t think their new coach was a good hire. Time will tell. But he doesn’t have very much time.

That is, five miles WEST, NOT EAST.
