“The academic part, it’s like you have to try to fail.”

You only get one guess as to which school that commit is referring.

    I guessed wrong. I thought UT!

    I said Auburn before I peeked.

    “it’s in the city but it’s also in the country.”

    …. say what? This dude’s been to Columbia, right? If he’s looking for a decent city he’s in the wrong place. If he’s looking for beautiful country, he’s also in the wrong place.

      Columbia is indeed a miasmic shithole.

        Columbia, miasmic, shithole…redundant, again, a third time

        +1 for appropriately using miasmic in a sentence
        +2 for appropriately using shithole in a sentence

      Wonder if he’s ever been in Columbia in August. If the heat doesn’t get you, the humidity will.

    Golly, here’s an eyebrow-raising quote:

    “I’m very solid, 100$% he said. “The only way I decommit is a change in the coaching staff or some other school says something really crazy.”

    Now, the $ can be easily shrugged off as a typo, but pray tell, what crazy thing would he like to hear from some other school? Because people in Starkville and Oxford have been known to say the damnedest things to kids these days.

    “I love how his words have been twisted to make South Carolina look bad….his actual comment was because of the great academics and the support system they have set in place for the players, you have to try to fail. South Carolina leads the SEC in academics. Get your facts right and stop making kids look foolish when they are actually complementing the school that they are excited to attend.”
    Well alrighty then. According to Forbes top 650: Vandy at 33, gators at 80 and Dawgs at 125. Tech at 133. Suck it gnats. MY GOODNESS Clemson, uT, Bama, Auburn all appear before the Chickens show up at 344. “Oh my gracious.”
    Gamecock fan …. s’up?

    Sounds like he can’t wait to put his Herbie Hancock on his Letter of Intent.
