this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
I made this video real quick, thought I would share it with you all. I don't know how to embed though, haha. Hope you enjoy!
Darnell Dockett on Webb not being his type. It is a hilarious read to say the least.
Dockett told a Phoenix area radio station on Thursday that Webb isn't his type. "I would have got her if I really wanted her, but I don't think she's my type," Dockett said via Deadspin. "I'm not into thinner girls and the modeling thing like that. I like hood chicks. I like girls with a couple stab wounds, bullet holes, been knocked up a few times. I like girls who you know have bad credit when they're 21."
Here is another classless example of fans going off on teenagers when they don't pick their school. I've been following Shelton Gibson because I wanted Michigan to recruit him, but I don't think we did. Here are some comments from the kid, obviously OSU fans attacked him on Twitter and he exchanged Tweets with them. Neither are good ideas, but...he's a kid.
"The problem came about when I committed to one school, and some people got all mad I didn't pick their school and they came at me on Twitter and on the internet"
"I have a lot of people saying I'm too dumb to play college football, and that Ohio State dropped me because I will never qualify academically."
"For the Ohio State fans, there was never anything bad about their school at all. I just felt real comfortable with West Virginia."
"It's just best for me to get away from home and grow into a man. I hope people understand."
I don't need to say it, but I will. For the love of God and all that is holy, please don't Tweet at recruits.
Facebook is down to the last 8 schools for the cover of NCAA Football...
Vote with your heart.
Why they don't do regional covers, I have no idea....
I found this SI article to be a fairly interesting read on how dumb the NCAA and how many dumb things have been caused by their byzantine rules system. It also does an excellent job casting light into why it has taken so long for Miami to be killed, long story short the NCAA was paying Shapiro's attorney to depose witnesses for the NCAA at one point.
Hopefully Emmert at least managed not to screw up the PSU sanctions so sadly that the NCAA loses the court case on that one.
