As if his draft stock wasn't hurt enough after getting run over in the BCS game now he looks like a total clown as well. Sucks at linebacker and has imaginary dead girlfriend. The Raiders will take him 1st round.

I thought I'd read that, too, and I recall something about his dad saying she'd visited him in Hawaii, or something, and it sounded like more than once...? But, the whole thing makes my brain ache.

The whole thing seemed to coincide with the kick-off of his Heisman campaign. I still don't get it.

LOL, college football is a multi-billion dollar industry. No one's gonna pay to watch collegiate debate teams go at it, or collegiate chess matches. In other words, nobody gives a shit about academics

Years ago, I came across a little, hand-written sign in the main library at Auburn. It read:

"These shelves, like the stadium seats, are empty. At least we're trying to fill the stadium seats."


Of course, in the same library, 3rd floor men's bathroom, just above the 4th urinal, in the grout between two tiles, someone else had written:

"It's amazing how small people can write"


Speaking only for myself, I could never figure out how small people could even reach the pencil sharpener.

The more I hear about it, the more I DON'T want to know about it.
