This...is awkward

It seems that June Jones may not be headed to Arizona State, after all. According to ESPN, he had agreed to become the Sun Devils' new coach...and then ASU pulled the offer. This story may change again before I even click on "publish post", but I think this latest development raises the question of whether or not SMU will even let June come backeth. Part of me thinks they'll be like the guy who keeps letting his way-too-hot-for-him girlfriend come back like nothing ever happened after he caught her cheating on him.

Jones should pull a "Costanza" and just go back to his office and act like nothing happened. "Sorry guys I'm late for the press conference announcing SMU's inclusion in the Big East...I am ready for questions...what!?...the press conference is over...okay, I'll be in my office"

As wonderful as it felt seeing him leave them behind, this actually may be better. I couldnt even imagine what I would think if i was assoc with that school, non the less a player.

This same thing happened to us when Pat Sullivan accepted the LSU job, then LSU could not negotiate a buyout of Sullivan's TCU contract and the offer went away.

We all know how that turned out in the end.

with Fuente gone to Memphis, it would be funny if he came to TCU looking to be the OC. or Sherman.

On The Ticket (1310) they were talking about how Jones was promised things that aren't coming to pass like he feels they should. For example, they mentioned Jones having to renege on scholarship offers for a couple of players because SMU didn't make provision re: admission requirements as Jones thought they should.

The always highly entertaining ponyfans kids got a screen shot of somebody who is supposedly June Jones son posting on Facebook. Here's what he said:
"that awkward moment when my dad almost left the shittiest football school in america for some school that actually has resources and that he could make a platform for himself to do something more than he would here..."

ouch.

Really this is the best of both worlds, the ponies keep paying a guy that doesn't want to be there and their recruiting goes further down the shitter.

LA Frog: Hilarious!

I know Smew owes him guaranteed money since he signed a recent contract extension. However, how can either party remain now that Pandora's box is wide open? June is soon gone either way.

On another note:
Did anyone see on the FRONT PAGE of yahoo.com that TCU fans taunting a Justin Beiber look alike made the headlines....only because the walk on for Tx Tech can't hear...

That's the dumbest fucking article I've ever seen.

It looks like Peterson from Boise State is flirting with A&M as well. I belive he is pulling in 1.6 million from the Donkeys right now and A&M will look to offer 4 million. Peterson does more with less so it would be interesting to see what kind of empire he can create with TX recruits. Food for thought.

I LOVE the Costanza idea.

Realistically, HOW can SMU keep him now? He clearly doesn't want to be there, and the fans are already turning on him. He showed his hand and it got pooped in. This will KILL recruiting, not that it was great anyway. SMU has no QB of the future to run his offense and what was supposed to be their best season in 25 years ended at 7-5. What a miserable situation. June is going to die in Dallas. He'll die very wealthy, but he'll still die here.

Our buddies over at AztecsKillingHim just gave their highly researched assessment of their new Big Least Conference mates. We need to make sure they take the SB Lessons in SMU Hate class.
