Point of pride

I’ve got no problem with giving deserving kids a second chance, but, still, this quote from Hawaii head coach June Jones comes off as a little disconcerting:

“The three best players I’ve had in this program were Pisa Tinoisamoa (now a linebacker with the St. Louis Rams), Colt Brennan and Davone Bess, and I recruited all three of them from jail,” Jones says. “We can’t get a kid like that to come to Hawaii. If a kid like that doesn’t have legal trouble, he’s going to USC or Colorado or somewhere.”

Hawaii players prepare for the island ritual known as “tongue-shaving”…
