Jonas is a linebacker. He's got a badass beard. He hits people. We sit outside Schembechler Hall, me with my pen and my notebook, the light of my recorder burning OSU red. I catch him staring at it a few times. Jonas is tired from his workout. He missed his ride home with teammate and fellow linebacker Obi Ezeh. He hasn't even had time to take the tape off his wrists. Because of me, he's now going to have to ride Obi's bike home. Jonas has gone from being less than excited to being a little pissed.
Man I love this kid. All the kids on this team are so grounded and are growing before our eyes. Here's Tree:
An interesting quick read. Even Boren grunts a few answers. Although the Plain Dealer is normally a horrific OSU homer rag, there's nothing inflammatory, and they are actually fairly complementary about D-Rob's hot start.
He will tackle you. He will intercept you. He will also eat your children. Ladies and gentlemen, your ironman of the week, Mr. Jonas "Donovan McNabb Lookalike" Mouton:
This article is about the Reggie Bush and NC football scandals. It basically says that it's not agents that are breaking the most rules, it's sports marketers who operate in a gray area. There were two bits that stuck out to me.
These individuals are the source of much of the corruption in college football today, and are at the center of NCAA investigations underway at schools such as North Carolina and Georgia, as well as probes at other schools that are expected to be made public in the coming weeks.
Earlier this year, Michigan football players and aspiring pros Brandon Graham and Brandon Minorasked two fellow students they trusted -- Daniel Stillman and Jordan Klein -- to help them pick an agent. Less than a year later, Stillman and Klein have opened Compass Management Services, which manages the financial needs of those two NFL players and hopes to add others.
Stillman said concern for athletes being taken advantage of financially led him to start Compass Management Services. His intentions seem pure, but the fact remains that less than a year ago he was a college student, and now he is managing two NFL players' money.
I'm hoping Graham and Minor didn't contact these guys before they left school and that they stay away from our current players!
