    They were saying that they felt bad for the kid, and this is what the representative agents business has come to, yadda yadda yadda.
    Really sticking up for the kid saying he got a raw deal.

    I wonder what they are going to say about it today.
    I'll tell you what they said and they are exactly right...
    The media is to blame for this by putting so much emphasis on high school kids to do well in football. "Signing Day" for high school kids (Remember I said HIGH SCHOOL KIDS) got huge national attention. Did you ever see a whole day of television devoted to kids who got scholarships for their brains. NEVER! This country has gone too sports nuts, especially at this level. Sure, what the kid did was wrong. There's no denying that, but why did he do it in the first place? That's the question the media has to ask themselves. They put too much emphasis on kids who are only 17-18 years old and not one of them has proven themselves at college level.
    Frankly, the high school kid who wins a National Merit Scholarship has a far better chance of making something of his life than a football player who has a "C" average.
    Preach on my friend.
    Preach on.

    I find the whole thing very sad.
    Do you think anyone will ever trust this kid with anything the rest of his life? Seems to be a re-occuring theme coming out of me lately.....

    A man is only as good as his word.

    Here's one that is pretty funny.
    The school had a big assembly and everything for the kid.
    Reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where George claims to have a house in the Hamptons.

    [size=16pt]Nevada high school football recruit made up story[/size]

    RENO, Nev. -- A northern Nevada prep football player who had claimed he was duped into believing he was recruited to play at a Pac-10 school admitted Wednesday he made up the story.
    He probably grew up on Internet forums and forgot that it is easy to disprove lies in real life.
