He don't know beans

Posted By on Tue, Dec 1, 2009 at 8:36 AM

Pat Lynch calls attention to a story in the Log Cabin Democrat in Conway about the FBI's presumed investigation of the conversion of private money to public funds to supplement pay of UCA football coach Clint Conque. Nothing to do with him, Conque says:

"For the record, I am contracted to do certain services for the university," Conque said at Monday's weekly Bearbacker luncheon. "When you fulfill those services, you are compensated for those services. I thought interim president (Tom) Courtway at the time probably said it the best way when he said that when you go to the feed store to buy a sack of soybeans, you don't know which field they came out of. You just know you got a sack of soybeans.

"For the record, I have no idea about any of that (where the payment for contracted services) came from and I'm not being investigated, as of today anyway, by the FBI."
