For love and money

The only thing that surprises me about this story is that in the wake of The Blind Side it hadn’t happened sooner.

  1. How wonderful these people are for taking a child into their lives and giving him advantages that he would not have otherwise. I am thinking of doing this myself. Know any young college football players that need a new Mom?

    Why, that’s positively heart-warming. I hear Sandra Bullock is already has an option on the screenplay.

    As much as I thought the Tuohys were genuine in their intent, I have the opposite feeling about this. What a can of worms.

      Yes, one felt so good, this so sleazy. Perhaps adopting years before the actual success/recruitment of the atahlete.

    Although he is seen in photos posted by Easley, Dowling last month said: “I don’t know nothing about that. I seen them a weekend, that weekend. I can’t remember if they said they were going to Miami or something.”
    Yeah, a couple Florida players and a Western Kentucky player just happened to be staying at the Mandarin Hotel in Miami and on the same $s million dollar charter boat.

    Well, thank goodness. Now I don’t have to worry about Shariff’s future. I was so concerned that he was going to starve to death as a college football star with an NFL future.

    What a joke. Go Gata.

    You people are so skeptical. Can’t your recognize genuine alturism? You would probably smell a rat if a coach put $85,000 in an offering plate at a church in Newnan, Ga.
    My wife would have done this for Tom Brady when he was in college…if the need was there.


  7. What fresh hell is this?

    I can see the telephone systems at Auburn adoption agencies overloading as we speak.

    “Shariff don’t like it…..rock the cash box! rock the cash box!”

    So who is volunteering to adopt Nkemdiche?

    Wait…isn’t that what Trump did with Herschel?


  11. DawgPhan

    meh…I dont have a problem with it. these folks are giving up a lot more by adopting him than they would be getting.

    Clemson did briefly…long enough to use him to secure a friend or two to the team and to think about others. Now he is decommitting with his gang in tow. Has anyone had the dark thoughts pass through your brain, whereas, wherever he goes, he will have his own friends and fans that probably would detract from a team environment.

    Suddenly, Robert could be a hot potato problem. His antics and the antics of Reuben would not be condusive to good Georgia football. We should forget them, eschew the new recruit behavior and keep things straight during their playing years.

    I wanted Nkemdiche badly earlier this year, but not so much now. Having him fit in where others have already established themselves, would create a problem if his buddies came and everyone thought that they should play. It could tear a team apart. “Too much spotlight attraction” should be a category for these HS kids.

    Why can’t the NCAA get involved with helping students qualify for college ball? Yep, many problems, but not the type that would keep them from playing. In the same manner as some schools have played the game by switching the recruit’s HSs, etc., the NCAA could provide counseling that would best benefit the player, not the school.

    Nah. Never mind. Schools could end up packing the counseling committee and using the NCAA to steer everyone to their school. While recruits’s lives have a legal fence around them already to prevent “loopholing”, they would have a phalanx of lawyers following them if the NCAA was involved with their heart.

    Besides, the NCAA is too busy making money off them to really get involved with their lives.

    You can adopt a 20 year old grown @ss man? WTF?


  15. Sanford222view

    Saban is going to be passed he didn’t think of this first. Looks like he will need some new consultants.

    Oh yeah, Mark Richt has lost control of adoption agencies in the southeast.

    Easley is now in a situation where he can submit an endless list of demands for the remainder of sugar daddy’s life. Easley – the Anna Nicole of cfb!
