At a Miami press conference on Tuesday, far from the lights of Columbus, Ohio, Rosenhaus gushed how this experience will galvanize Pryor and make him a better person. Out of the other side of his mouth he proclaimed that Pryor wants to move forward and doesn’t want to look back.
Well, no kidding. Looking back would give the appearance of being accountable for his actions and we can’t have that. So we’ll take the page out of the parasite playbook, ignore the misdeed and hope it goes away.
Pryor also declared he was ready to “be the best person he can be off the field.” He also apologized to Ohio State fans and Jim Tressel, whose coverup of Pryor’s alleged misdeeds proved to be his own eventual undoing. He just didn’t say what he was apologizing for.
Earlier this week, Pryor’s attorney spouted that the player is done at Ohio State and is under no obligation to help the NCAA.
My question is, if Pryor is going to become a better person, isn’t admitting his mistakes instead of hiding behind lawyers and agents the place to start?
