Any way, Doug Smock of the Charleston Gazette reviewed Ridpath's account of his time at MU in "Tainted Glory: Marshall University, the NCAA, and One Man's Fight for Justice.
When you get a chance make sure you give it a read, some of my favorite moments:
- In chapter four of the book Ridpath describes Marshall's compliance department one of the country's worst upon is arrival to Huntington in 1997.
- Ridpacth claims that former Marshall athletic director Bob Marcum told him that legendary Thundering Herd football coach Bob Pruett was a "pathological liar".
- Ridpath describes current Herald Dispatch columnist Chuck Landon as a "quintessential jock sniffer...".
