to play football, not to play trumpet

She does say, "somebody," not "someone." Damn my inability to correctly and accurately quote people.
Thank the Google. And by extension, Al Gore, of course.
I'm serial, guys.
Kids never break the rules.
+1 for inadvertantly having an avatar of manbearpig right below a reference to manbearpig. Nobody better post a reply to the above post and screw up a very poignant moment in history.
"Come on... everybody gets paid..."
He was probably about to, if not for the sweater vest supervising the interview.
Everyone knows Shaq made his money in college....
Well I cant say it's the dumbest thing he has ever said...
This stood out to me: "I guess that would be a problem if he was taking it now," Pryor said.
Um, yeah, still a problem.
yeah, apparently it's only a problem if you continue to do it after being caught.
I'm sure he isn't rationalizing his own perks received before he got to OSU, but it makes me wonder. Timing don't matter foo.
Let the kids be kids...in Hyundai's
Man i just want Martin to pummel him
Is this a picture of Pryor's potential future in the NFL? Being tackled by former wolverines (graham already in NFL, and Martin soon to be).
Please notice how there is no picture.
Huh, kind looks like he's trying to choke him there. What kind of scumbag would choke a player while he's on the ground?
that's emulating from his rotten grill.
I'm glad that at least one person here still has a sense of humor.
I don't think the daily Terrelle Pryor hate thread is the best place for subtle humor.
Don't give dude that much credit. Weekly? Maybe. Bi-monthly? More likely.
Tell me you didn't see that Neg Storm coming. Really?
If Martin wanted to choke him, TP would be breathing through a straw right now.
Choke that MFer.
It's The Game. If you need to get up and your hand happens to brace itself on somebody's face or throat, so be it. Both sides.
It's not funny to refer to your own Ryan Reynolds against Wisconsin. Really, it's not funny. GFY.
i think the original comment was tongue in cheek... Not sure anyone got it though.
The internet seems "scrubbed" of pictures or videos of that play. I certainly remember how appaling it was to see it live.
What's wrong with choking? I thought everybody murders...
is not spread like the osu player, and is obviously on the jaw. Not on the throat. For all we know was that MM was patting him on the cheek. We have no evidence of a hour or push from a still picture. Significantly doesn't from reynolds choking dude on national tv, repeatedly.
would do that.
lolz will be had (look at the "info" section)
This was a paper that Terrelle Pryor wrote and left on his desk top. A person noticed he had not logged off, and sent this to her friends.This is known as quality work at THE Ohio State.
Research is the most used resource to finding out something you need from school papers to things you want to buy. Research is also used to find cheaper shopping supplies. For instance one store may have had a pricey type of material one was looking for and the other store you researched was a couple dollars cheaper. Coming out of high school I was thinking to my self what I wanted to do for a living and what I wanted to major in to start the quest for my job. Research is also used to find shopping cheaper shopping supplies.
I used the research process to find out what type of job specific major I wanted to major in and what type of job I wanted to do when I graduated from college. I researched different types of jobs, Criminal justice, business, communications, and education. I came up with criminal justice but couldn’t decide between business and criminal justice. I did research on business and did their pros and cons. Then, I did the pros and cons of criminal justice. I came up with in the business world you can either have a good chance at the type of business you want to start or a bad business that won’t sell or bring in money.
Another part of my research I did was the most important factors in the business, was what they want for what they can afford and is there a profit that can help me out to make some extra money.The availability of the job openings, the job entails, the pay hours. I looked up also whether I would have to be in school for along time or not to get a job. Also my personal enjoyment in the job would I love to do every day I woke up to go to work.
With out research I would not have been able to get these types of information for the job that I want to do for the rest of my life. If one would just go and do something with out researching first they could’ve missed something that could have later benefited later on or benefited one more then the other.
And I die a little inside.
I'm guessing that brain cells were the part to kick the bucket.
As a writer, I cringe whenever I see this junior high stuff. It's pretty sad, honestly, because the reading and writing level among many high schools here is beyond repair.
Well, bonus points could be awarded for structural ingenuity:
Coming out of high school I was thinking to my self what I wanted to do for a living and what I wanted to major in to start the quest for my job. Research is also used to find shopping cheaper shopping supplies.
Those two sentences actually appear together. In that order. There is enough quality in the second sentence alone that it should become a meme.
Pryor needs to start throwing better throwing passes.
I believe . . . .he is ready for the NFL.
l believe in you! Can't wait until you pick up your trophy....
I've read a lot worse in freshman level college classes. High school English education can be very poor.
I'm surprised Cam Newton didn't erase Terrelle's name and hand it in as his own (without Terrelle's knowledge).
Kinda funny. But at the same time, he's majoring in football, so did you really expect anything different?
"Shit Pryor Says"
I'm surprised he didn't say this: "Who gets paid in cash these days anyways?"
...really miss MSC.
Hope things are going well for you...
To OSU, college football, and higher learning in general. This dude is a fucking dolt and a half.
Yeah, but he's coming back next year to gain more knowledge as a human being.
probably my other favorite quote from that article about him coming back next year
"I'm playing football right now," he said unequivocally. "That's it. I was just throwing it out there. I think all the time."
Oh really, pryor, you think all the time?
Even Voltaire doesn't think all the time. Get it? Anyone? Derp....
Allegations about violating NCAA rules only come out if you're doing well, just like the allegations against Rich Rodriguez and the U of M football program. We were really kicking ass last year.
...English is a course requirement for graduating with a degree from Ohio State, right? And it has to be taken in the first couple semesters, right? Serious question.
He's OK with the ideas of guys getting paid it seems, but angry that "we" only go after the successful ones. As if it's all OK so long as you never meet the full potential you were paid for.
Very telling, and maybe introspective.
haha, I didn't even think about that. No wonder nobody is investigating Pryor for being paid.
Is Cam "a kid" or "a young man"?
Tressel really needs to keep a muzzle on that guy. Every time he speaks he says something ridiculous...
If Tressel shuts him up, then we lose some good laughs. I say, keep Pryor unplugged.
I say we suggest, in our humble opinion, that tOSU should have a reality TV crew follow him around for a season. I'd pay good money to see the results of that.
Mr. Pryor, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
Okay, a simple "wrong" would have done just fine...
Billy Madison quote
If you were being sarcastic (because I can never tell), I apologize.
Why are you assuming that Pryor's family is poor? Likewise, why are you assuming that his family is too poor to afford to buy him a Sonata?
There were plenty of students at Michigan who had cars, and they weren't necessarily eating from a golden spoon (myself included). Why assume that the student-athletes are any different?
His mom works a little
He trades in his Corvette to pay for it.
I was expecting something a lot more idiotic and exciting than this.
Seriously, how in the hell is this guy maintaining the proper gpa required to play football???
That, or some girls he "befriended" in his quest to mature as a human being.
especially considering he's not a "general studies" or "kinesiology" major.
as "everybody kills people...", I am excited to use "let kids be kids" in my future mgoreplies here on the mgoboard.
I think a lot of it stems from Pryor feeling that he is also the victim of people criticizing him because they are jealous of his abilities. The ego on that kid astounds me.
of the way he can bounce a football into the ground 3 yards in front of a 5 yard completion. Elite level skills, bro.
...but it was worth the 3-9 and 5-7 seasons to not have Terelle Pryor representing the University of Michigan.
I agree with the post that you disagreed with. I know that 2008 and 2009 sucked, but would you really be as proud of your school if this tool were the face of the program? I will take Tate / Denard any day. Hell, I would take Nick Sheridan any day.
Pryor comes off as a bit of a tool, 'specially when compared to Denard.
Just about everyone comes off as a bit of a tool compared to Denard.
Can we please stop making fun of the supposedly poor English abilities of players on other teams? Every time Pryor opens his mouth he says something that makes clear that he's an idiot; let's focus on him being an idiot (i.e. what he says) than on his communication ability (i.e. how he says it).
We're on this blog celebrating one of our own players using the phrase "I be like dang" - we can't subsequently criticize Pryor's work on his research paper without looking like hypocritical douchebags. Lets leave that to the Sparty and Buckeye blogs, please.
Keep those quotes coming TP!
Only thing that would have been better had he said.
"Everyone murders, steals from you steals from me, takes money to play college football"
I'm surprised i haven't seen anyone on their soap box... well I guess I'll be that guy:
What he said wasn't that out of control, I think you guys are blowing it up and digging for more than there is. He's made worse (less coherent) comments before, yes, but leave him alone. And please stop posting his essay or whatever he wrote for class. I think it's classless, tacky, and wrong to pick on a kid's intellect, particularly by reposting something he wrote for school. (assuming it's real)
Also consider one thing: if he had chosen Michigan... would you attack his intelligence/eloquence then? I'm pretty baffled right now, to be honest. Neg away, but if you disagree, please speak up.
I agree with part of what you said - it is tacky and classless to make fun of a college kid's lack of writing ability ot even lack of intelligence. He is not a polished English writer - who cares. I would be that if you looked at the papers of half of our team, they may look the same - again, who cares.
The part that I disagree with is the part about what he said being not that out of control. There is an allegation that Cam Newton wanted to get paid to play for Auburn. If true, that is a big deal - it is one of the most serious types of recruting violations. As I read TP's comments, he was saying, "come on, leave Cam alone." Well, if Cam did what he is being accused of, why should we, the fans, the media,the NCAA or anybody leave him alone. TP is defending a kid who may have asked for pay to play. How is this ok? And, doesn't it raise the question of whether TP himself sough - or even received - some benefit in making his college selection? Not saying that it happened, but it raises a question.
Oh, and once you say, "everybody kills," you are pretty much fair game.
Fair enough. I agree the Cam situation is serious, but it seems to me that TP is sort of assuming he's innocent, and his main point is, why is this coming to light now? Now that this kid is really contributing and is in the limelight, let's bring him down." I don't necessarily agree, but my point was that it's not an "out of this world" claim. If he had said something more controversial, I'd understand the reaction in this thread, I just think people on here are overreacting and taking it way too far.
Why do trolls continue to exist on beloved Mgoblog? Why does Pryor say stupid shit? Why do wanna-be writers exaggerate the truth about "Practice Gate"? Why is our government going broke? I would like to quote Elaine Betis from Seinfeld! "I have seen the nipple on your soul!"
That this dickbag took a nice cash payment from Thee Crooked State.....
Things TP doesn't have a firm grasp on:
You know, I'm not even sure this cracks the top 5 dumbest things Pryor has said in public. I said it when they were recruiting him that I didn't think he'd fit that well at UM (I was thinking more in a football sense since he wouldn't want to be part of a rebuilding year or two), but his maturity has always been lacking. I don't wish ill will toward the kid, but I'm kind of happy that his career at OSU, barring some miraculous run next year, will be of missed opportunities and an inability to lead a loaded team to a championship.
why hasn't anyone at Ohio State told TP to stay away from anyone else with a pencil, mic or tape recorder? The best news here is that Pryor seems to want to stay for his senior season. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens when he feels even more comfortable in front of the media. This can only get better and better.
Because every Michigan player would be able to get into Michigan without their football scholarship too right? Acting like Pryor is the only player in the NCAA that isn't smart is hypocritical at best. Did we just forget this happened too?
(Picture is hard to read, but it's a paper written by a UM football player, it's poor to say the least)
Evidently you have not seen the Terrelle Pryor paper.
evidently you didn't read my comment.
ever been quoted saying anything intelligent? He's just not that bright.
.....about Pryor gaining the record of lowest Wonderlic test score.
Tp is muff cabbage
