All further commentary is hereby suspended until somebody can confirm that the freakiest of all freak hands, as featured in panel one, has been confirmed as captured. That is all.

Bonus Point: True is sure going to be in for one heck of a shock when he gets out of insurance salesman school only to learn it’s all about being rated – by adults no less! Fortunately for him, I’m sure with his State Championship, he’ll do just fine in either this tank town or another one nearby.

  1. I agree with Rubin and Whigham’s commentary on the silliness of recruiting services and high school players having press conferences. It certainly has got out of hand.

  2. Why? Because other adults pay them to.

    True’s hating the player when he should be hating the game.

  3. This is a little hard to watch. I forget how emotive teenagers can be. True – use your inner voice, pal.

  4. True’s dismay seems a bit overwrought, considering that he’s probably been getting letters and phone calls from college coaches since he was 15. And anybody who follows football knows all about the excesses of the process.

  5. I wonder if Rodney realizes that even though he can’t sign his LoI — and as a top prospect, he shouldn’t sign one anyway — he can announce his choice of schools whenever he wants.

  6. This is already clear by inspection, but I am pleased that Whigrub is pushing the idea that there is something a lit-tle creepy about the fact there are so many more people concerned with how well these kids can throw a football than with what decisions they, and their classmates, are making about education. Let me put it a different way: the US is the only developed country in which athletic departments run colleges and universities. In most countries, the colleges do not even sponsor teams. When they do, they may lend their name to them– “Oxford Blues” rowing, for example– but the teams are clubs and the kids pay a user fee to participate. It is not a coincidence that in the US, the two sports that consistently combine big money and scandal– football and men’s basketball– are also the two which do not have professional minor leagues.
