Kids say the darnedest things.

From today’s Atlanta Journal-Constitution‘s recruiting page:

Here’s Glouster (Va.)’s Tommy Reamon, Jr., who’s got a strong, practical interest in Georgia Tech:

“I’ve been down there probably five times and could see myself playing there,” Reamon told the AJC. “Like one out of every five graduates is a millionaire, so I’m not going to argue with that.[Emphasis added.]

Tommy – neither did Reuben Houston.  He was just a hard working kid trying to get ahead and make millions, too.

Then, there’s Perry High’s Casey Heyward, who describes his style as a passer as “Mike Vick — with less arm strength.”

Now there’s a sales pitch.

Get a life. Really.

A 48 page report of emails and phone logs about the Nuttster? FOIA requests? Multiple appendices?

Whoever you are, creator of this, please don’t take this the wrong way, but are you batshit insane?

UPDATE: More Arky craziness here. I think the Wiz is right – it’s hard to see how Nutt is there after this year.


UPDATE:  Cliff’s Notes version of the “report” can be read here.   You think the Nuttster now wishes he’d taken that Nebraska job when it was offered?

The gang that couldn’t bet straight.

In posting about the emerging point shaving scandal involving Toledo, I wondered whether there were really many gamblers who craved action so much that even betting on Toledo would be attractive.

Turns out there are.

I should have realized why:

Mr. Campbell said the MAC, with its frequent midweek, nationally televised games, attracted many gamblers.

“College football is the most visible sport, and with Toledo playing on Tuesdays and Thursday nights, it was the only game going, so sports gamblers paid real close attention,” he said.

Damn, son, I don’t think I would have said that.

J.D. Quinn, former Oklahoma offensive lineman, just sayin’:

“All I did was take cash,” Quinn said. “I didn’t break any laws and I get kicked off the team, but there’s people on the team that are breaking laws and failing drug tests and stuff like that, and there’s nobody getting kicked off the team for that type of stuff.”

What’s that Lincoln quote that comes to mind here?  Oh, yeah.
