RichFraud is simultaneously claiming that Stewart wanted to come to UM, and RR offered him a job at UM. Yet somehow, Stewart didn't make it to UM with all of RR's staff.

The "man" is a liar, and is overly sensitive to any comment that could maybe, possibly be traced back to him.

A "smear campaign"? Every single person representing WVU has only responded to RR's statements.

Rodriguez is UM's problem now.

Every time Rodriguez opens his mouth he makes himself look worse.
