Ravi Moss has officially entered the world of Ross Perot, going in and out of the UK football team like it was the 1992 Presidential race. Unfortunately for UK, Moss does not make his announcements on Larry King, thus giving UK a much needed boost of publicity, but rather does talks with Alan Cutler, spending most of his time mesmorized by his bizarre moustache and scary cowboy boots.
Moss says he is back on the team for good this time, believing that he will be able to contribute to the Wildcats’ thin wide receiver corps. While I support Ravi in everything he does (except perhaps driving the baseline and throwing up an airball while flopping into the defender), I just cant fathom what is going on here. How does a kid determine that even though he didnt play football at any level beyond youth organization, he can come in and in ONE year play for an SEC school? And even more to the point, why would the UK coaching staff act as if he can contribute?
Look if Ravi contributes, I will be happy. But can it really be that a guy who has no football experience can immediately hit the bigtime Div I level? And if so, does that mean that anyone who is athletic can play football? If so, why isnt Rich Brooks at Golds Gym, recruiting walkons to come and be athletes. Hey, why not call Derrick Jasper and see if he is ready to go?
I love Ravi, but call me a big-time skeptic on this one. Football is for true champions, like Lee Majors. Ravi should stick to trying to make a pro basketball league in Europe, or dominating pickup games in Hopkinsville. Leave the football to the professionals, like Blake Bowling.
