Terrelle Pryor wins basketball title

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by typewriterhill, Feb 23, 2008.

  1. "Pryor scored 39 points, had 24 rebounds and also posted 10 blocks." to lead Jeannette to a WPIAL basketball title.

    The kid was a top 15 recruit playing basketball and had committed to Pittsburgh 2 years ago but then his football dominance kicked into gear and now he's the #1 recruit for the gridiron. I can't envision this kid giving up basketball this easily.

    I'm so sick of the hype surrounding this kid. Pick a fuckin school and leave him, and us, alone.

    Winning a championship in basketball is not hype. It's fact.

    Nevertheless, BYM's point is well taken... quit milking this fuckin thing and pick a school so you can go back to obscurity until fall practice

    Is Beaver Falls any good this year? Are any of Dwight Collins' kids playing?

    Let's see how Pryor does in the PIAAs.

    I heard Colin Cowherd (yeah, yeah, I know...I was stuck in traffic) this week guarantee Terrelle Pryor would 1. start next season and 2. win a national championship. MY guarantee is that Colin Cowherd didn't know jackshit about this kid until two weeks ago.

    What does Beno Cook have to say?

    No idea, but I'm sure it will include a comparison to some guy he saw 50 years ago.

    And I'm only sort-of making fun of him. Beano's recall of sports history is absolutely amazing.

    BYM is right about the hype thing. I really don't like the way Pryor has handled the recruiting process. But that is one hell of a performance in a championship game.
     
  9. I heard the reason Pryor delayed his announcement is because folks (his father and Steelers QB Charlie Batch) are not sure about the ability of Rich Rodriguez to develop the young man's football skills for the NFL. I don't understand how that translates into giving Oregon and Penn State more time to recruit him but I'd say he delay definitely hurts Michigan after Mallette transferred and Ohio State is rumored to be the favorite.

    That's not the case. Pryor's father, who has some kind of disease that keeps him wheelchair bound, loves Penn State defensive coordinator and Pryor's recruiter Tom Bradley. Pryor's father didn't feel he gave Penn State a chance since while he took numerous unofficial visits there he never took an official.

    I'm sure it is a combination of both, perhaps also some concerns about the way Rodriguez is handling his exit from West Virginia in terms of bad pub.

    This kid better win a Heisman and at LEAST one BCS title. This hype is getting ridiculous for a kid who played small school football in Penn. Not saying he doesn't look good, but with this insane hype he's decided to build for himself, he better be able to do some water-walking.
