OT: Pryor Speaks Lulz

Submitted by those.who.stay. on December 8th, 2010 at 11:18 PM

Sorry if already posted, neg if necessary.

I think this speaks for itself.

 

 

"I'll put it like this: You put me in any of their offenses — any of them — and I'd dominate," Pryor said, when asked about the attention afforded the likes of Newton, Robinson and Persa. "I'd dominate the nation. What those guys do, that's what they're supposed to do in their offense.

"They carry the ball 30 times a game. I carry the ball maybe five times. There are times I didn't even run the ball in a game. You put me in any of their offenses, where I can run the ball and have a choice to throw, I would dominate college football."

"We could have done better, but I'm 30-4." I'm 30-4? Excuse me? No, the team he is on is 30-4. 13 of those wins come from games where he completed less than 10 attempts. He should be thankful for how much talent he has been surrounded by the past 3 years. 

Instead, your quarterback is an arrogant, immature jackass as seen through the comment presented by the OP, his tweet on Herbstreit, and his statement on Wisco, and I quote "Everybody knows that if we play Wisconsin 9 out of 10 times, we'd beat Wisconsin."

Besides not even making any sense structure-wise, the last comment epitomizes the illusional world he lives in. He'll probably be shell-shocked when he isn't listed as the #1 pick on Kiper's draft board. 

From the looks of your  points total, you seem to be a level-headed Buckeye. However, I think we've reached a point where you have to admit he's becoming ridiculous. I'm sure Ohio State has plenty of respectable players on its roster. (Un)fortunately, Terelle Pryor is not one of them.

While that quote is not quite as bad as the others, it still makes him look like a jackass.  First, as mentioned above, saying "I'm 30-4" just reinforces how self-centered he is.  Second, his statement that he'd be happy if he were winning but not putting up stats is completely contradicted by the quotes in the OP.  His ego is bruised because he's not receiving enough recognition and he feels the need to bitch about how great he'd be in those other offenses, putting down other players and his own offense in the process.

As Michigan fans, we're prone to be over the top when criticizing Ohio State for any reason, but Pryor is, objectively, an assclown.

None of this is to say that he couldn't be very successful in a spread offense.  Of course he could.  But he needs to grow up and figure out how to talk to the media without giving his immaturity and arrogance free reign.

That quote doesn't really help your case. He just sounds like he's back pedaling after making a lot of sour grapes comments. If I could be totally objective, which I can't because I'm a Michigan fan, I'd understand why this guy feels slighted. If you're the number one pick out of high school, and you go to one of the most currently successful programs in the country, and you're expected to be a shoe-in for the Heisman and then only make honorable mention in the Big Ten awards, you're obviously going to be pissed. The question is, who do you blame? Your coach or yourself? He blames his coach.

Nobody had to coach Pryor to skip out of bounds to avoid a hit. That's his nature. Denard on the other hand has to be coached to do that after getting rung-up a time or 2.  Everyone wants to win.  Denard HATES to lose and he will be a champion.  But, in the meantime, he never ever pouts or calls out a coach or puts himself before the program. These are things Pryor does and doesnt even know he's doing because he is self-consumed.

Thank God Denard is a Wolverine and Pryor is a Buckeye. Perfect.

There's nothing narcississtic or self-centered in the following quote:

"We could have done better, but I'm 30-4," Pryor said. "I want nothing else but to win. If I was having a lot of stats and I was losing, I would really be kind of mad. My competitive nature wants just to win, by any means. By any means, win. That's all I really care about, to tell you the truth, man."

     He has done nothing that would make an NFL team want to draft him as a qb and I don't think he's tough enough (mentally) to change positions.  I see a bright future for TP in the CFL.

Yeah, I forgot that Charlie Batch was such a great pro. This guy is a clown, I seriously hope we beat the hell out of them and Dantonio next year. I want an ass kicking like the Pats gave to the Jets last Monday.

He might use it once a game.  He's much more polished in the "avoid any chance of contact and the run directly out-of-bounds" play.  It's quite effective for him, of course that's probably Tressel calling that too. 

Perhaps the only play he has perfected more...   the "dominate the opponent by confusing them with a ground ball to the flat" pass play.  Dominating.

more wins, been to a couple bowl games and the program would feel at least on more solid footing, and Denard would be redshirted and ready to unleash his smile on the world knowing the offense but I am soooooooooo glad this bozo went to OSU.

Pryor is a junior and still hasn't declared for a major.  According to tOSU website he's "exploring".  What a joke he's on all academic Big Ten.

I have no problem with the lack of sports-speak decorum here. It's actually a little refreshing and Barkley-esque, especially since hes closer to being right than he is to being wrong. He would have clearly been better off at Michigan and he knows it (Michigan would have been better off with him too in his freshman and sophomore years). I don't think he'd have gotten Denard-type numbers but he might have come close.

 (Michigan would have been better off with him too in his freshman and sophomore years).

I beg to differ. The only real bright spot of the last couple years is the Michigan players refusal to whine, pout, point fingers etc. Having to stomach Pryor's idiocy and selfishness would have made losing unbearable.  And trust me, he wouldn't have made an impact on the field either. His me,me, me attitude would have hurt this team.

The "everyone kills people" related comments were starting to get old. Now we can have fresh comments using some new and exciting TP references.

"I'M 30-4. Not you, not the defense, not Tressel. ME!"

"I'd dominate every sport I tried out for, if only I was given a chance!"

"Those other guys, they can win the awards, but everyone knows(just like everyone murders people) that I'm the best!"

 

Think of the great laughs we are going to have over this. I'm not sure about the rest of you, but I want more TP comments. Here's to hoping Tressel doesn't put a muzzle on him, ever.

I don't think "every one kills" will ever get old.  I just wonder if he's going to kill everyone before or after he dominates the nation.  I think it would be a lot easier to dominate the nation after killing everyone, but who know how this man of superior intellect thinks?

One of my most ardent hopes was that Pryor would eventually realize that he made the wrong decision to attend OSU.  He isn't saying it that way, but he does know that he fucked up big time.  He may be saying he is a Buckeye, wants to come back, etc, but he knows deep down that he would have had a lot better time playing for a spread option team. 

This means, no matter what he says or how he postures, that he won't ever be 100% on the same page as his coach.  It also means that I will enjoy any consequences his unrest causes OSU.

"There is no question that Rich Rodriguez's offense, for example, would be more apt to suit Terrelle's skills," Reitz said. "But Ohio State sold him on the idea that they would prepare him for the NFL and that they don't run 'zone-read' in the NFL. Jim Tressel is a great coach. But I can tell you there is more to Terrelle Pryor than what we've been seeing."

"We've never had to talk to him about, hey, listen, don't worry about the individual stuff," Buckeyes quarterbacks coach Nick Siciliano said. "Because he's never brought it up. He's never once said, hey coach, I want to win the Heisman, or I want to win this. He said coach, we have to win games."
 

Oh, so he only makes a selfish idiot of himself in the national media.  That's cool.

T. Cryor.

 

OSU has one of the best Ds and great receivers and kicking games.

T. Cryor just has to put up 12yd ducks and run an occassional 5yd skirt run to the sideline after getting good field position from the D and kicking game.

Newton and Tebow (and Denard) are QBs that can move their teams to a win by force of will.
