Rice has upped the ante in the world of recruiting (/s). They are recruiting J.T. Granato and hope an appeal to his kitty will sway him their way.
“As you know we’re trying to convince J.T. Rice is the place for him. I know you’d like to keep him close so he can feed you and change the litter box. Please help us to get him to choose us. Paw me if you have any questions.”
Must have done the trick, as Granato committed to Rice this week. MEOW!
Your move Bo.
Purdue is playing at Rice tomorrow, so I wandered over to Rice's athletics website. Before you enter the site, there's a splash screen ad for their home games and it includes a huge picture of Sam running the ball.
I took a look at last week's box score against Texas and McGuffie only had one carry for four yards. Meanwhile, they had 5 other running backs with more carries than him. I figured he'd be a central part of their running game this year, but I guess not. Do any MGoBloggers in the Houston area follow Rice and know how he's doing?
