The lighter side of unionization

A high schooler can dream, can’t he?

Quarterback Jaylend Ratliff of Laurinburg, N.C., has committed to Georgia Tech, according to multiple reports.

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound Ratliff also had offers from North Carolina, N.C. State and Wofford. He is rated as a 3-star and the state’s No. 28 overall prospect, along with the nation’s No. 76 athlete.

“I want to win a championship,” Ratliffe told’s Ryan Bartow. “I want to make money. I want to be a Yellow Jacket.”

I don’t care how down you are about the prospect of college athletes getting paid.  If the thought of the genius dealing with the aftermath of unions and O’Bannon doesn’t bring a smile to your face, there’s something wrong with you.

    Unless things change only 1 of his 3 goals are obtainable at Tech and that one isn’t nothing to brag about.

      He wants to win a championship…..well he better de-commit and go somewhere else. CPJ is a terrible coach, I almost feel bad for Tech, almost.

    “YOU CAN DO THAT…well the part about being a yellow jacket. The other 2 are precluded by the first.”
