Come on, Cam was well known at Florida............for possessing stolen property

Never heard of Manziel though.

That begs the question of so-called payments. He was an unknown player save for a NJCAA National Football Championship. Here are the last few winners of that series.

2005 Glendale Community College
2006 Blinn College
2007 Butler Community College & Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College (Co-Champions)
2008 Butler Community College
2009 Blinn College
2010 Navarro College
2011 East Mississippi Community College

Can anyone name the starting quarterback for either team for any year other than Newton for Binn in 2009?

Who was it that said, "How you like me now?"

Edit: I think we all go through some defining moment in our lives. Cam's was getting kicked out of FL. Mine was watching a kid die in the hospital where I worked as a lab tech at the ripe old age of 19. He had been shot 4 times in the head with a .22. Once the doctors figured out he was brain-dead, the tech working the ambu bag was simply told to stop and we watched as his heart transformed from a perfectly beating organ to a flat line.

That was the first of many deaths I witnessed before I got out of the service. That wasn't even during a war and it messed with me - it's not tough for me to imagine what today's vets are going through.

[QUOTE=k7;20437992]As much as I hate to admit it, I've pulled for Alabama in the past. Again, it's their fans that are insufferable. (See "Ken")

By the way,





I think it is fitting that there is a mobile home being towed in the picture.

I am from Ga, I can get away with that joke.

Mmmmm, not so much before. Had a classy coach and he kept the players pretty classy too. For the most part...

One of Jerry's sons is involved in the organization and he has been unable to quell the suckage. This may be a multigenerational disaster.
