This Week in Milford

I Agree: This IS Nuts


Boy, times have sure changed. I went to undergrad at a big D-1 state school football factory where jocks were lauded. I met a guy who won the Heisman and knew a couple of guys on a first-name basis who ended up with NFL careers. I also knew guys who walked on to the team but quit because playing interfered with their MCAT prep. What’s the point of my name-dropping ramble? Even in a jockocracy, I don’t recall students asking for autographs from players, much less from prospects who haven’t even signed letters of intent. This whole summer arc has felt like some kind of Take That fever dream to me.

Other highlights: Rodney Curtis needs to practice on his jazz hands (and baguette fingers), and Sedrick Roy needs to sign with some big program if only to get his dad out of that PT Cruiser and into some new wheels. Hopefully these boys are now off to score some unofficial barbecue. Maybe after doing Fort Worth, they’ll hit the road for a cross-country football and ‘cue tour. Road trip to Big Ed’s?

  3. […] bling wheels on his hatchback/crossover/whatever the heck that is. Good mimicry of Rodney’s jazz hands from the TCU visit, too. Maybe that’ll become the new version of the Heisman pose, as […]
