Do we have a football recruiting thread? Barry Sanders' kid chooses Stanford

    I presume this is the one that was born back when Barry wasn't having sex, so I can understand why Barry J. Sanders is so blessed on the field.

    Coincidentally enough, the decision came down to Stanford and its Fiesta Bowl opponent, Dad's alma mater. Story says the kid took the SAT and ACT several times and loaded up on AP classes his senior year in an effort to persuade the Stanford admissions office.

  3. Kudos to the kid for working his tail off in the classroom.

    The meth heads don't come out until 4 a.m.

    Really, though, I think it speaks to Barry Sanders' legacy. He posted the greatest single season in college football history. How can any Cowboys fan hate on his son now?

    Having said that, if Barry Sanders Jr. had been a five-star recruit, I think the tone of those comments would be a little different.

    I can't imagine that anybody related to Barry Sanders would be smart enough to go to Stanford.

    Maybe he gets smarts from the mom and athletic ability from his dad.

    Yeah, sad isn't it.

    How come during these little announcements that hardly ever anybody asks them what they're going to major in?

    He's going to major in witty retorts for "You're not as good as you're dad!!!!"
