I'm no Pryor apologist (far from it, as a matter of fact), but let's be honest--your attacking him is avoiding the topic at hand.  Here's an excerpt of one of the (many) articles on Hartline's comments.  I realize peoples' opinions can differ, but this is some pretty bush league behavior on Brian's part in my opinion:

“If I’m building a team, what is [Pryor]?” said Hartline, a GlenOak High School graduate who spent six seasons with the Miami Dolphins and one with the Browns. “Is he my No. 1? God, I hope not because let’s put it this way: For me, I want a guy day in and day out I know what I’m getting. You don’t know what you’re going to get. You don’t know who’s going to show up. You don’t know if he’s going to get in trouble. You don’t know if he’s going to smart off. I need stability. That’s so more important to me. I need a guy that runs routes. I need stability. I need constant production. Is he a No. 2? OK, yeah. I mean maybe. He kind of disappeared the last couple weeks.

“So I’m very apprehensive as a Cleveland Browns guy to give out a contract. Listen, you had one year. You’re a flash in the pan. You’re trying to tell me with a guy that had suspect personality characteristics, I’m going to go ahead and hand you a bunch of money but you’re going to work harder? Uh, I think I’m going to bet against that if I’m a betting man.”

That's the point--good teammates (and good people, which are those you want around the program) settle their disagreements in private, not by taking sophomoric pot-shots at each other in the papers.  Brian's comments reeked of jealousy and bitterness--Pryor was doing something light years better than Brian ever could, despite the fact that Brian had been practicing for years and Pryor just picked up the skills.  Hopefully Brian apologized to Pryor for that.

Your statement that "it looks sketchy" only rings true with you--I'll refer to you to the various responses to your posts if you don't believe that.  And again, on this whole nonsense, I'll pass along to you some words of wisdom:  stop being naive.

Actually, you need to re-read what you originally wrote, which is what touched off all this nonsense.  I'll help refresh your memory--your original words were that you "do not like" that boosters were even on the flight, and that their being there is "sketch."  This new argument that you're spinning--that you really only care about the photos portion of all of this--is a massive step backwards from your original, ridiculous position.  Realizing your original point what not well thought through, you've moved the goal posts, all while having the audacity to act as if you haven't.  Spare us.

Just another example of Cooper not quite understanding the big stage.

Somehow, the only person on the planet who doesn't think there is an issue with the men's basketball program just happens to be the university's athletic director.  Good thinking, Gene.  smh
