I mean you've been following recruiting as long as I have. How could you possibly think we would or could pay for a prospect's surgery. I mean c'mon. This is the first and only time I'll ever use this twitterism, but i can't think of a more appropriate thing to say: #smh
He didn't say we paid for it...It's his (obviously) opinion that Rolin stayed committed long enough to secure a surgery (that we did not pay for...RC knows that) with one of the best knee guys in the country who may have been too busy to take a kid from Virginia in his schedule otherwise. It's not that hard to understand.
I mispoke when I said that in my original post and corrected it immediately. I do not think we paid for his surgery and know that didn't happen. However would he have got the surgery by Guy if he had switched earlier? Hell no. Hence his reaffirmed commitment last week BEFORE his surgery. So if that's not playing the staff I don't know what is.
Dr. Guy isn't so busy as to he is going to turn away paying clients. He runs a private practice. He wants all the surgeries he can get, trust me.
Yeah and I'm sure he wouldn't have missed their money as well. We all have opinions and/or info about this situation. But to be honest at the end of the day we'll live.
I doubt he would have operated on a Va. HS student who just reneged on a commitment to play for the Gamecocks when he's the team's Orthopaedic surgeon. He doesn't need money that bad.
Spurrier...I appreciate him plenty
Yea, you are probably right. I doubt he operates on clemson fans either
Surgeons of his stature don't have time for everyone
Correct. Only people with enough money to pay the bill.
This is accurate.
source: I got in car wreck, had hip issues, they saw me in ONE DAY. going back today, wish me luck.
Look at whittle's reply where he quotes his original post. He says 'free surgery'
That is pure conjecture on your part. And seeing all the other posts on dr. Guy, and his affinity for taking as many clients as possible, that conjecture also seems to be wrong.
You're just flying off the handle on your opinions of what occured.
