Kirk Cousins releasing a book...no joke

Kirk Cousins wrote a book coming out this summer. I can't stop from laughing right now. This is going to be an awesome read.

Three-time team captain, Kirk Cousins is currently considered one of the most successful quarterbacks in Michigan State University history...

He's a career backup and never set foot in the Rose Bowl.  Low standards!

Actually he has most of their records at QB, and being a three time captain really speaks to his character and the respect he earned from his teammates considering he hadn't even started a game and was elected captain.

I'd be curious to check it out.  Cousins seems like a smart enough guy and he's from West Michigan.  Not sure why you think it's such a big deal.

I actually like the guy. He and I graduated from the same high school and he's an amazing person. He is one of the nicest guys I know and he's a man of great character. Putting aside my Michigan fandom I can really appreciate what Kirk has done being a guy that wasn't hardly recruited and offered a late scholarship by Dantonio, but he turned himself into a solid NFL player.

As a former captain of the MSU footbal team and an earnestly religious person I do find myself curious as to his take on the morality of late hits, attempts at intentional injury, and the overall ethics of "60 minutes of unnecessary roughness".

Or does this all get brushed aside with the justification that Mike Hart hurt Sparty's collective feelings 6 years ago?

The book will be on the Clearance shelf by the second day. Only the Sparties will buy it because he's not influential to anyone else.

If some publisher wanted to pay me to write a book, I would in a hearbeat. Seeing as I have no real wisdom to share and my plain, insignificant life is barely a fraction as exciting as Kork Coupons' life has been, I see nothing odd about him writing one himself. I have no interest in reading a book by a Sparty in the least, but more power to him, I guess.

Meh, while I don't like him, I can respect the guy. The only knock on him as far as writing this book is that a lot of people don't really know who he is. Yes, he's a high character guy, and I'm sure it'll be a good read, but that doesn't mean squat if no one knows who you are. You're a former MSU QB and you're RGIII's backup. In my opinion, that doesn't scream "buy me!"

...to try and find anything and everything you can to ridicule Sparty? There is enough that let's stick to the more obvious targets.

That said, I couldn't think of a less appealing target than Cousins who from what I can tell is truly a standup guy, went from a 2 or 3 star prospect to a 4th round pick, was 4-0 against UM, and looked pretty good in relief of RGIII last year (most likely leading to a Matt Flynn/Scott Mitchell type contract a few years from now).

Lets get back to the inferior academics, the couch burning, "staee", the blunt smoking rappers, etc.....

 Denard wrote a book the bucknuts and sparty's would be all over making fun of it.

 

I say who cares, backup QB's write books when they know they'll have no NFL career.
