    Are you seriously telling me that that snotty little Ted Cruz look-alike is still playing for the dookies? Geez, you just can’t get rid of their annoying coach or their annoying players!

    Blackmon, jr is still in college with eligibility? Seems like I heard his name during recruiting like ten years ago. Was he a 5th grader that Gillespie wanted?
