Subject: FSU football player

Time to put it in the blender

Subject: FSU football player....

A student went to Florida State on a football scholarship. He was a great running back, but a poor student.

At graduation, he didn't have enough credits. But he was a
great football star and the students held a rally and demanded the dean give him a diploma anyway. They were so insistent that the dean agreed if Bubba could answer one question correctly he would give him a diploma.

The one question test was held in the auditorium and all the
students packed the place. It was standing room only.

The dean was on the stage and told him to come up. The dean had the
diploma in his hand and said, "sir, if you can answer this question
correctly I'll give you your diploma." He said he was ready and the dean asked him the question. "Sir," he said, "How much is three times seven?"

He looked up at the ceiling and the down at his shoes, just pondering the question. The FSU students began chanting, "Graduate him anyway! Graduate him anyway!"

Then he held up his hand and the auditorium became silent. he said,
"I think I know the answer. Three times seven is twenty-one."

A hush fell over the auditorium and the students began another chant. "Give him another chance! Give him another chance!"

Kinda sounds like some of our members of Congress, don't it? - Metzger

Sounds like the press corps at an Obama press conference.

In 1999, Peter Warrick and a few other FSU players were arrested and charged with felonies for taking shoes and clothes from a department store (the cashier was in on the deal and sold them at very reduced prices). This lead to my favorite Bobby Bowden quote of all time when he said "I sure was hoping it would be a misdemeanor."

It must have been 20 years ago when my father, referring to FSu football players, said "Most of those guys are one step from prison." He didn't like their thuggish behavior, nor their obvious near illiteracy shown when they'd be interviewed on the sidelines.

Could be Rodg, but I don't remember, because that was about the time I became fed up with the leagues condoning spoiled brat/lookit me!/thug behavior, and I quit watching football and basketball.

Well the rumor was that someone had a truck load of Purina Gorilla Chow delivered to the athletes dorm and it's "special" dining hall, somewhere in Texas in the 1970's.
