But back to the topic of Terrelle Pryor...if anyone is still interested in talking about that???
Two questions I struggle to find the answers to, and would be interested in others opinions and thoughts...
1) Why the hell did Jim Tressel throw away his career for this guy?
National Championship. Beat Meatchicken. Top Tens. $$$$$$$$$$$$
2) We are now told that rather than selling a few items for a couple grand, Pryor in fact sold a whole lot of shit, assembly-line style if the reports are credible... for probably ten times that much. I'm sorry but I don't understand the "demand" side of this economic arrangement. I mean, even before his scandalous exit, how much would you (presumably Buckeye fans) have paid for a Terrelle Pryor autograph?
I think it's more a means of handing him wads of cash that was promised him prior (no pun intended) to Signing Day.
If Michael Jordan set up a stand at the mall, could he earn $40,000 selling his autograph? Probably. Tiger Woods, maybe. But how many others? College football players? Seriously?
Don't forget Bob Feller
