Poor Todd. Why do people continue to mistake him for a journalist? What do you mean by asking him for facts and ****? He's not about facts. Facts are for the guys in the truck. Todd's about feelings, and storylines, and what this moment means to you, [Prominent Arizona Sports Figure]. You'd think even he would have made the observation that American college athletics, as an institution, isn't about to put the players first or second or third. Maybe they're fifth. I mean you could make the argument that they're fifth. But they're nowhere near first, is my point.
His tweet verbatum:

@theawfulwaffle as usual you throw stones without researching the facts of the day.
