    Just cause they go to College


    WHY ATHLETES CAN'T HAVE REGULAR JOBS...



    1. Chicago Cubs outfielder Andre Dawson on being a role model: "I wan' all dem kids to do what I do, to look up to me. I wan' all the kids to copulate me."



    2. New Orleans Saint RB George Rogers when asked about the upcoming season: "I want to rush for 1,000 or 1,500 yards, whichever comes first."



    3. And, upon hearing Joe Jacobi of the 'Skin's say: "I'd run over my own mother to win the Super Bowl," Matt Millen of the Raiders said: "To win, I'd run over Joe's Mom, too."



    4. Torrin Polk, University of Houston receiver, on his coach, John Jenkins: "He treats us like men. He lets us wear earrings.."



    5. Football commentator and former player Joe Theismann: "Nobody in football should be called a genius. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein."



    6. Senior basketball player at the University of Pittsburgh : "I'm going to graduate on time, no matter how long it takes." (Now that is beautiful)



    7. Bill Peterson, a Florida State football coach: "You guys line up alphabetically by height.." And, "You guys pair up in groups of three, and then line up in a circle."



    8. Boxing promoter Dan Duva on Mike Tyson going to prison: "Why would anyone expect him to come out smarter? He went to prison for three years, not Princeton ."



    9. Stu Grimson, Chicago Blackhawks left wing, explaining why he keeps a color photo of himself above his locker: "That's so when I forget how to spell my name, I can still find my clothes."



    10. Lou Duva, veteran boxing trainer, on the Spartan training regime of heavyweight Andrew Golota: "He's a guy who gets up at six o'clock in the morning, regardless of what time it is."



    11. Chuck Nevitt , North Carolina State basketball player, explaining to Coach Jim Valvano why he appeared nervous at practice: "My sister's expecting a baby, and I don't know if I'm going to be an uncle or an aunt." (I wonder if his IQ ever hit room temperature in January)



    12. Frank Layden , Utah Jazz president, on a former player: "I told him, 'Son, what is it with you? Is it ignorance or apathy?' He said, 'Coach, I don't know and I don't care.'"



    13. Shelby Metcalf, basketball coach at Texas A&M, recounting what he told a player who received four F's and one D: "Son, looks to me like you're spending too much time on one subject."



    14. In the words of NC State great Charles Shackelford I can go to my left or right, I am amphibious.



    15. Amarillo High School and Oiler coach Bum Phillips when asked by Bob Costas why he takes his wife on all the road trips, Phillips re sponded: "Because she is too damn ugly to kiss good-bye."

    I agree I have run into many collage grads without enough sense to pour water out of a bucket with the directions on the bottom.

    It's time we started drawing the line at High School, college just seems to incur brain rot.

    Or veto any college with an athletic program.

    For all you Presbyterian religious conservative nutjobs out there (others welcome too, of course, but that's probably the best fit), check out New Saint Andrews. No food service, no dorms, no athletics, no mascot, no school colors, one major... but an education I would give my teeth to go back and get (the first year reading list is 5"3" tall or so).

    It really was a contrast when we made the Prospective Student visit. On the way there we did the same visit to a big state U to get a feel for where my sister and brother-in-law teach: "Here's the theater, here's the health center; here's the pub; the radio station is over there; this is what a dorm room looks like; that's the North Campus Pizza place... oh, yeah, and we have classes over there." versus the greeting we got at NSA: "Here's a cup of coffee: first-year Latin is at the end of the hall. See you in an hour."

    You can keep your football stars.
