The biggest impact of this is that it will be used by other coaches to negatively recruit against Applewhite with mamas. "Well, mama, do you really want your son to be influenced by a guy so morally bankrupt that he would cheat on his wife just days before giving birth to their first child?" Mack has long sold the family atmosphere and really ingratiated himself to parents. This is just going to make that harder, especially as they are trying to transition to Major being the face of their recruiting, and it's also pretty embarrassing. But I don't think anything else will come of it.
Well, if Mack feels it hurts his brand and his recruiting, he can take care of it himself. Still not sure why the regents need to be involved.
