    @Tank: Fantasizing about a guy getting shot? Classy. @SGV: Huh? I bet Ziola is rethinking his life because of your post.

    If I am a head coach and I have a freshmen that can star on varsity I let him play frosh football. If the kid makes a splash playing on your D10 varsity team as a freshmen and gets noticed on the MVN then you are sure to lose him to the pimps.

    Did anyone play defense in the Rose Bowl? Sounds like the Pro Bowl or a high school showcase.

    Maybe AB should become a famous rapper. Maybe he’ll catch a round.
