Jerry Bomar: "I Know Stuff, But I'm Not Talking"

New, 64 comments

While Rhett Bomar is in Mobile, working out for NFL personnel, his dad issues a smarmy, slimy defense of his son’s troubles at OU. Not surprisingly, Jerry Bomar says that OU threw his son under the Sooner Schooner.

When discussing his son's dismissal from OU for the Big Red Auto scandal, the elder Bomar gives a wink and a nod and says essentially he could take down the program, but he is too nice to do that.

"He and I both know that Oklahoma got off light and he didn't," Jerry Bomar said Wednesday. "He's never sold them out and he wouldn't. They're not innocent in this deal, trust me. Bob Stoops comes across as 'Mr. I Did the Right Thing' and there's stuff about Bob Stoops that if right now I told people, everybody being saying, 'What?' "But we're not gonna do that. We're not gonna go that way, and you can't win those battles anyway.

If this isn't a classic case of the "Mack Brown-Spurned Recruit Curse" then I haven't seen one.
