Oh, it’s an actual contract. I thought maybe he was getting in on that booster money.

Kid was a 3 year starter, from his true freshman year. He’s still a year or 2 younger than other guys being drafted. I think he took one for the team and moved to C, as G is his more natural and better position. And he’s got a bit of a nasty streak. For selfish reasons, would have loved for him to stick around, but I think he cost himself a few rounds and some cash as he could have moved back to G this year with Myers coming on at C.

Interesting you mention the Niekros. I thought Hondo was actually from a really small town near Bridgeport called Blaine. When I googled it, that was actually the Niekros. 

And a guy by the name of Nick McKay, from my hometown of Shadyside was credited for teaching Niekros dad how to throw the knuckleball. Nice man, went to our church. I believe his name was credited in an SI article about the Niekros years ago. 

Actually, here is a link with Phil crediting him in paragraph 4:

and another.  This may have been the SI article from 1984:

Looks to me like he would come in the fall and this would be his last year of eligibility. Dobbins, Teague, and McCall should be enough. And Crowley looks to me like he could play now if needed.

Nope, but if a Bama player did this you’re fooling yourself if you don’t think OSU fans would be screaming about bagmen at the top of their lungs. 

I said the the same thing on here when Wint, Harris, Harrison, and others tweeted that pic. This site did in fact convict Bama when some of their players did the same several years back. Many said it was our kids being kids. I don’t mind going on the line here again and say I thought it was a stupid move.
