Vince Marrow responds to claims he played dirty for Wandale Robinson


Nebraska fans are not coping well with Wandale Robinson’s commitment to Kentucky yesterday; in fact, Jim Rose, the former play-by-play announcer for the Cornhuskers, went as far to suggest that Vince Marrow, Kentucky’s recruiting coordinator, played dirty for the four-star athlete.

“Things were looking good for us, until last night. Kentucky assistant Vince Marrow, perhaps accompanied by a few special friends of Kentucky athletics, hung with the Robinsons. When the meeting adjourned, one of them placed a call to Frost. He was presented with the minutes of the last meeting and was asked, ‘Is Nebraska still interested?’ Scott had no idea who the guy was, how he knows Wandale Robinson or even how he go Frost’s number. The call didn’t last long. There’s a good chance Wandale Robinson will never again speak to a Nebraska coach.”

“Who knows what, if anything, beyond room and board, tuition fees, and a living stipend was promised to Wandale or his family. Maybe scary things were implied,” Rose said, listing various recruiting horror stories over the years. “But you can’t coach what you don’t have, so at some point even the most sincere of coaches dance with the ugly stepsister of his business knowing they can’t help all the good kids if they don’t win enough to keep their jobs.”

Well, then. Marrow, who used to coach tight ends at Nebraska, responded on Twitter:

I know Nebraska’s 2-6 this season and fans are bitter about losing Wandale, but what a bad look for the Cornhuskers.

    ridiculous and he is from kentucky so why is it such a stretch. only reason anyone want to go to nebraska is because they suck so bad u would be their mr everything

      We thank the state of Nebraska for the players that have transferred to Kentucky and Vince Marrow.

      But, I agree that he would have been their marquee player, but it may not have ended up being so bad after a full year of Frost imprinting his culture on them. Stoops had a rough go of getting good high energy practices his first few years.

    Those cornhusker tears are delicious. Keep ’em coming! lol

    Two things Nebraska and UofL have in common:

    Red.

    Irrelevance.

    Don’t get the dog mad . He might just bite. He was never going to a bad Nebraska team . Tom left a long time ago

    Implying that someone intimidated or bribed a recruit should be grounds for firing or revoking someone’s credentials, if they don’t have any proof. Seems an atty might want to write a letter and make a call to Rosie O’Dontknow, who is making these claims

    Coach Marrow and the University should sue his ass!

    Well who gives a bag of dicks what an ex-announcer has to say? I’m sure there are a lot of people in Nebraska unhappy right now. Is there a need for KSR to post all of their disgruntled opinions other than trying to rile up UK fans?

  8. Alleykat16

    It’s not only on KSR but also the bleacher report has done a story on this guy saying this. This is plane and simple being a sore loser cry baby type of a move. I hope they keep sucking a dry tit.

    He made his commitment on a prerecorded video. I’m sure he didn’t record it the morning before his announcement. CATS

    1. Han

      I believe he made videos for all the final teams he was considering.

    Play for a 7-1 team in the SEC or play for a 2-6 team that hasn’t been relevant for DECADES and is literally in the middle of a corn field. Sorry Huskers, your best days happened when running the wishbone wasn’t just for the service academies.

  11. chris gettelfinger is not walking through that door

    They’re probably also still sore that we got Terry Wilson and they didn’t.

    Talk about flipping the script…..two teams: Nebraska and Kentucky. One is playing out the string at 2-6, and their only relevance is in recruiting for the future, and whining about losing said recruit to the other. And the other team is 7-1 and playing for a birth in the conference title game, and hauling in recruits. What a difference a few years can make.

    I’m surprised anyone would consider Nebraska. Not only does the town suck, but they have a terrible football program.

  14. Miller45

    Anyone who believes that any part of the Nebraska football program is looking good is a delusional moron

  15. Shively1978

    Theres several programs like Nebraska that had a couple of good years and think there power house programs. I would put Tennessee in that to. They have 1 national title that I can remember and have been irrelevant for several years now. Miami is the same way. Maybe a top 10-20 team most years but not a powerhouse. The only two that are real powerhouse programs consistently are Bama and Clemson. Maybe Ohio state but they get there ass kicked in the playoffs more often than not.
