Terrelle Pryor on Improper Benefits - "I felt like I was doing God's work."

Well, um, I'm not sure what to say other than to quote and link this article.  Terrelle Pryor details the story of selling his Gold Pants for $3,000, money he says he used to pay his Mom's rent and heat bills.  

Whenever I write my book the proof will be in there, the receipt that the money I gave my mother was to pay the electric and heat bill. The truth is going to come out one day when the time is right. I don't think I deserved (being punished) in that way, because of the reason I was doing it. I felt like I was doing God's work in a way, and I was getting driven into the ground.

Strangely, he mentions nothing about tattoos, loaner cars, etc.  Some people are just crazy enough to believe their own nonsense.

after watching some of the older highlights at the Big House, I noticed there are some traditions that are no longer seen at the Big House.  One is the tossing of TP rolls.  Another is the 20'+ flag poles that fans used to bring into the stadium and the marshmellow tosses.  I understand the marshmellow tossing caused problems with the field.  But I really do miss the other two traditions.  I also miss the beach balls.

Screw it!  I was on my way to the gym buuuuuuutttt...well! 

Chris Spielman just finished up on ESPN:

"I'm not surprised, I mean you hear things and I believe that Coach for whatever reason and it's mysterious to a lot folks who follow this football team why he catered to Terrelle.  And why there are a different set of rules for Terrelle Pryor.  I have no idea why and that's the big mystery to me."

"More disturbing to me is that there's not a player or senior or leader on that football team that does not hear about the shenanigans that was going on with Terrelle and they didn't step up to stop it..."

He went on to mention the trouble Gene Smith is facing as more information surfaces.

I think we know why TP didn't come to A2.  The deal just wasn't good enough!

Thanks to poster Ducatidoc for the motivation and money quote (above) from TP.  =)
