Yesterday, the best defensive player in the class of 2009, Jamarkus McFarland, chose Oklahoma over Texas. The NY Times chronicled his lengthy recruitment, and it is a captivating story. (We’d love to read one of these every month.) When you read about how hard Texas parties, you may initially wonder why he’d attend Texas over OU. This should touch off quite a war on college message boards everywhere. Among the nuggets:
- Texas parties hard. Vikings Loveboat-style.
- Problem is, the Longhorns recruitment of McFarland was all over the place – hot and cold, inconsistent, and nothing like that of Oklahoma’s
- Oklahoma was tireless in recruiting McFarland and played up the academics angle – which was the smart move considering McFarland was the President of his class
- LSU tried to entice recruits with “hostesses”; also, LSU has “maids” clean the dorm room of athletes weekly, which seemed odd
- USC players rented a stretch hummer limo and hit a party
- Random Texas fans/boosters seemed to be throwing money at the kid’s family
â€œI will never forget the excitement amongst all participants,â€ McFarland wrote. â€œAlcohol was all you can drink, money was not an option. Girls were acting wild by taking off their tops, and pulling down their pants. Girls were also romancing each other. Some guys loved every minute of the freakiness some girls demonstrated. I have never attended a party of this magnitude.€
He continued: â€œThe attitude of the people at the party was that everyone should drink or not come to the party. Drugs were prevalent with no price attached.€
â€œSome people who attend the University of Oklahoma seem to represent different values than some people who attend the University of Texas.€
Not surprisingly, Texas fans are irate … and their comments are initially negative toward the writer and the NYT. Love college football, but can’t stand the clueless fans.
