that boat in tha caribeen it sailed so far
I always love your comments, TPryor. This is your time in the sun, but what are we going to do without you when you leave college for good?
Nobody graduates from mgoboard.
With his sugar daddy gone, and new inquiries, all promises are off. Terrell has signed with an agent and bought him some wheels for real.
Thought maybe that GIF was TP rolling up in the NEW NEW whip.....
Thought there was alot of smoke. Assumed it was fire. Perhaps just the train.
The only thing left to do is hope the Lions don't revert to Millen-era intelligence and try to draft this guy!
damica soo wouldnt want tha compitishin
He'll make a great tight end someday.
TP doesn't like to get hit.
TP is an idiot... keep the train rollin

Adam Schecter at ESPN said that the supplemental will be held despite the lockout assuming anyone is in the draft pool (no one is yet.) He also said you need to apply to the NFL to enter the pool and explain why you didn't apply for the full draft, i.e. something must have changed between the regular draft deadline and now. If Pryor were to have his suspension increased, that would def. qualify. Don't know if the coach he promised to play leaving counts, though.
so, the reason I want to enter the supplemental draft is that I f-ed up, and increased my suspension. Can I get paid 1 year early now? Kthanksbye.
Doug Lesmerises of the Cleveland Plain Dealer has an article that casts some doubt on Pryor gaining eligibility for the supplemental draft. Evidently, the NFL doesn't allow a player to use a ploy to get into the supplemental draft:
A player must petition the NFL for special eligibility to enter the supplemental draft, and that petition always relies on a player's circumstance having changed since he could have declared for the NFL Draft.
A player might be declared academically ineligible, or get kicked off his team for some reason or engage in an activity that causes him to lose his NCAA eligibility. I double-checked with the NFL today, and what the NFL prohibits is a player who was eligible for the regular draft just changing his mind or attempting some kind of ploy to use the supplemental draft to his benefit.
For instance, two players went in the supplemental draft last July -- BYU running back Harvey Unga, who left BYU last April after violating the school's honor code, and Illinois lineman Josh Brent, who settled on the supplemental draft last June after trying and failing to regain his eligibility at Illinois by enrolling in community college for the spring semester.
And Terrelle, don't let the door hit ya where the pig bit ya . . .
The more they turn on him, the more likely he is to turn on them and tell the NCAA what he knows clarrett style.
He is getting a lot of hate down there for all this (as he should), but it will be interesting to see how he handles it coming from people that claimed to love him. Based on his actions so far, it wouldn't surprise me at all if he sang like a canary in the future about everything if they push him too far.
Did the lockout end, cuz last I heard lockout means no supplimental draft.
Here's an interesting read on SportingNews about it: http://aol.sportingnews.com/nfl/story/2011-05-31/terrell-pryor-teammates-reportedly-eligible-for-supplemental-draft
They had the regular draft, so couldn't they have the supplimental draft? Not being snippy. I'm actually asking.
just keeps getting better and better. For once gents its GREAT TO LIVE IN OHIO! Columbus is burning and buckeye fans are scurring out like rats. Most that I've talked with will not even claim to have been fans in the past, thats while they wear thier buckeye gear. This meltdown is sooooooo fast TP latest ride can't keep up.
Somebody needs to U-tube his walk of shame off campus.
Who is that in your profile pic?
Adam Schefter has been saying that the NFL is allowed to hold a supplemental draft, however no one has entered in it so there is no date set.
As of this morning he says no one has applied, we will see what he says in the next few days.
Never trust a kid that says "Everybody kills people"
Who is going to want to draft pryor? Talk about the epitome of character issues and thats without even talking about skill or potential....
Pryor (probably) isn't worse than Newton, and we all know where he ended up in the draft...
Honestly I would take Pryor in the supplimental draft if I could get him as a third-ish round pick. The worst thing that can happen is you have an athletic freak on the field with character issues, which basically describes a good part of the NFL anyway.
Well, the worst that can happen is you have an athletic freak who insists on playing QB even though he's better suited elsewhere, and the next worse thing is you have an athletic freak who tries to play TE or WR but can't block or catch or run good routes because he's never been asked to before. And who isn't willing to put in the off-season work because he thinks he doesn't need to. I'm not sure either of those scenarios are worth a 3rd round pick.
True points, surely, but OTOH you have to believe Pryor would change if he needed to. I mean, he has to do something for money and if the way he can stay in the NFL is by playing WR, I think he'll eventually have to deal with it.
I will say that I doubt his first team keeps him very long, so you might be right that third is too high.
Plus, I think Cam Newton is significantly better than Pryor and I still think Cam Newton has an extremely small chance of making an impact in teh NFL at QB. You'd think at some point, NFL GM's would make a list of the best QB's and see a trend:
Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Phillip Rivers, even the younger group - Matt Ryan, Sam Bradford, Josh Freeman. Noticeably absent are the JaMarcus Russell's and Vince Young's of the world.
I have no ill will for Cam, but I'm afraid that past experience indicates his transition to the NFl will not be easy.
There are a lot of college players with poor attitudes that still succeeded despite it because they were physically so much better than the competition. This often catches up with these guys in the pros. As a Lions fan, I think of Charles Rogers and Mike Williams. When you get to the NFL, you need to be athletically gifted and well behaved and a hard worker and all of that. Plenty of talented guys bust in the NFL because of their bad attitudes.
Yes, my point is that, for all his shortcomings, TP has the athletic ability to succeed at an extremely high level in the NFL. Taking a chance that his issues will stay out of the locker room seems to be reasonable, given how the whole Newton thing played out. Cam Newton has more off the field issues than Pryor, why not take (seemingly) less of a chance well after the first pick?
I don't know that Cam Newton has more issues than TP, I'd argue he does not. And I don't think TP has near the talent or work ethic that Cam Newton has. They played in different systems, but Cam Newton was a much more productive passer and runner than TP was, and TP was a three year starter, Cam only one. They were different offenses, but I don't know why people think TP=Cam Newton just because they're both tall and black.
NFL teams got to see Cam perform in the combine, pro days and other individual workouts. TP won't have that luxury, teams will just have to take a chance on him. I doubt teams risk much for him.
You can argue talent and work ethic, but Pryor wasn't dismissed from school for academic dishonesty also amid theft allegations. He sold a few things, but I honestly don't think that's a big deal.
Tall and black might have something to do with it, but both can run like hell, both have off field issues and both are questioned as passers. The running and throwing applies to Tebow as well; they're all big, all standout runners and all have throwing issues.
I'm not sure I'd go so far as to say "most of the NFL has character issues." Granted, I don't know them personally, I was under the impression that the bulk of most NFL rosters consisted of pretty solid, high-quality, down to earth citizens.
Unless you are talking about skill or potential of course.
The NFL has stated they will hold a supplemental draft in July if someone enters ie: ie even 1 person.
Its not a big spectacle like the regular draft is and honestly I cant see a team taking a 2-3 round flyer on a unproven prospect with character issues, oh shit Cam Newton went #1?....well damn
The only way that he is getting drafted is at WR. I could see him as a David Boston type receiver.......
but he's got a long way to go to be compared to David Boston (not to mention he was actually a pretty damn good college receiver, attitude or not)
Where they're doing the "Bachelor Auction". Chris Elliott comes up to get "sold" to a bachelorette and he goes to the old grandmother for "two bits" (less than 25 cents). That would be a fitting pro career start for Terrelle in a karmic kind of way.
Someone will get him, but it might only be for a 5th or 6th round pick. As much as I don't like the guy, if the Lions got him for a 5th or 6th rounder, that's not a bad value. He has as much chance at being a solid NFLer as about anyone else you'd get at that spot.
Just thinking about TP having to run with the scout team every day in practice against Suh.
late declaring for the draft (yes, I know he's leaving early) and will go for the trifecta by holding out. I'm sure he thinks he should get 1st round QB money. If his agent is smart he'll insist on a full-time chauffer.
Describing Pryor as a late round pick. I'm not sure that he'd get taken before Posey, for that matter. There's about a million things wrong with his game. I'm not sure that the Newton analogy holds up, except that they are both big and fast. Pryor just isn't that good at the whole throwing the football thing, which lots of NFL teams emphasize in the QB selections . . .
In all honesty this is probably his best option. His college career is over and it sounds like he's going to be the proverbial scapegoat of Tressels demise.
English question: Does the word scapegoat describe you if you're actually mostly responsible?
he meant to type a goat that is trying to escape.
"proverbial scapegoat of Tressels demise."
Is he mostly responsible for JT's fall? No. I don't think so. Tressel was doing this stuff for so long. If this had just been TP acting out or getting side benefits, JT would still be there. However, this goes way back to a whole bunch of players.
The sad part is, the OSU fans appear to be blaming most of this on TP and in that way are averting much of the blame from where it really belongs, their beloved senator. I think scapegoat is a perfect word.
What I wonder is how differently TP would have turned out if he didn't end up with a coach like Tressel who catered to his sense of entitlement. How differently whould TP have developed if he ended up with a coach who actually taught real character as opposed to just giving it lip service.
Yep, either the supplemental draft or perhaps have a go with the Toronto Argonauts.
At this point, TP can't afford to be picky. He's got to leverage that athleticism into some income and then try not to blow it all before he's 35.
"He's got to leverage that athleticism into some income and then try not to blow it all before he's 35"
I was thinking more like 25 . . . especially considering how many tats, cars, weed and prostitutes he's now going to have to pay for without the OSU equipment room to himself.
I get how people like TP or some others can apply to be drafted, but can those who applied to the original draft and went undrafted go into it as well?
I believe they could, theoretically, but why would a team give up a draft pick in next year's draft for a guy they didn't pick in this year's draft? Why wouldn't they just sign him as a free agent? Then they wouldn't have to give up anything.
He obviously knew or was told the end was near for him in Columbus. They have had enough of him and have likely politely (or not so) told him that this is going to end badly so make a graceful exit but keep your mouth shut...
it's not like that's stopped him from playing before
I just can't see Pryor playing another snap next year. He knows that he's going down and he wants to jump ship asap. To me this can already be assumed, the main thing is just does anybody else have to leave...
