Tate Martell, The Online Presence.
Bringing up Baylor.
Look, there were far too many of these popping up everywhere on Aggie social media in the immediate aftermath. It's fine if you don't think Baylor is getting enough attention, because something like that can never get too much. But the minute you mention this useless recruiting thing in the same breath, your tweet becomes callous and slimy and hurts everyone's cause. It marginalizes a serious institutional flaw that puts people at risk. No matter how noble your intentions were, in the eyes of an outside reader you compared the two by combining the separate ideas.It becomes a classic deflection tactic employed by countless obnoxious college football fans and cements our rankings here. You know why you're seeing more coverage of it for a couple days? Because we lost two five-star QBs in December and had one de-commit in May and our recent Heisman QB has been all over the headlines for the wrong reasons. It's a story. It's going to get a few news cycles. The Baylor thing is also a story. It's a more daunting and difficult story to expose and people must take their time and do it the right way. Don't worry, people are still going to hate what happened there long after they've forgotten about Tate Martell. Horrible, life-altering news has no expiration date, as evidenced by the latest discoveries in the Penn State case yesterday.
