OSU QB Cardale Jones Twitter hilarity

So, apparently 3rd string OSU QB Cardale Jones is not fond of having to go to classes while he is in Columbus. He posted this to his Twitter Account:

some lulz for Friday afternoon. The MGoGrammar Police could have a field day with this one

He is absolutely right.  He didn't get into OSU because of his great grades.  This kid was brought in to ride the bench his entire career.  Classes surely would get in the way of that.

I'm not sure if that's a good thing for Ohio because it shows he's going to class despite the fact that he doesn't want, or bad simply because of how idiotic it sounds.

Ultimately I think I'll just view this as another sad insight on society and the future of our country.

there are many people who choose not to go to college because they don't like school.

I think it is more an insight on the hypocrisy of the system where people who have no interest in a higher education, are given scholarships, academic assistance, etc., just so that institution can succeed in a sport.

I am sure there are many ex-high school football players out there, who would really appreaciate the opportunity to continue playing football, and get a higher education. That is what is sad to me.

I'll have you know, he's going to get top dollar when he goes to sell his books back. That reminds me, my sister has a communications class next semester. Who do you think will be cheaper, amazon, or Cardale?

Nice. This tweet dovetails nicely with Urban Meyer's attempt to emphasize Ohio's academic superiority for football players in comparison with Michigan's (major comparison he highlighted before the season started).

Do you like my party hat?  Do you like my party tat.?

No Sir, No Sir, I know fo'sure sir...

I would not like it, in one of Terrel Pryor's loaner cars... I would not like it from behind Maurice Clarett's bars....

I do not like it with a bow tie.... I do not like it when they dot the "I"...

You can take your buckeye's and shove them up your wazzoo... Cuz I am from Michigan, just outside of Kalamazoo...

Rooting for Ohio is just not my scene... Because I am a true blue, Wolverine....

I don't think that is what the professor teaching your class on existentialism meant when they told you to apply the concept of "Absurdism" to real life. Then again, the meaning of life to Jones is clearly football, which if this is the only facet he will consider, it makes classes extraneous. Camus might very well have bought that as a practical application. Well done, Cardale.

Granted, he would have had to go to that class to understand this....

I doubt Cardale will be on the team much longer.

On the other hand, he's right.  Many "student" athletes don't care about school, but going to college is the only way to get into the NFL, which is what they really want.

Although I can see that line of thought for a guy who comes in as a starter and is one of the better players on the team, but that is not Cardale, and he should know that by now.  Not only will he not go to the NFL, but he will likely never take a meaningful snap in college.  

If Denard had that viewpoint, I'd be disappointed but I'd get it.  If Kenny Wilkins did, it would be  stupid.  Cardale Jones has as good a shot at the NFL as Keny Wilkins, and they both should be looking to not-sports as a career after college.
