That SI cover was awesome. Smoke, tats, ferocity. And the Broncos win games. They're ranked every year. That's me all over. I'll fit with this team. They want me. I want them...I think.
Yeah, but the article on arrests shows Boise at #4. That’s not me. I’ve come close, but I’ve never been busted…and Dad doesn’t even know I’ve come close. Is the SI article just wrong?
Coach Peterson talks about integrity and focus. That’s me, sorta mostly. I train hard and I try to be pretty honest. I know I can contribute, study film. I won’t disrespect the school.
Yeah, but I don’t want to get to the NC game and have the team forfeit because of some greedy egomaniac that the coach gave a second chance. Or with guys that get kicked off for possession the day before the title game. I know it could happen anywhere, but is it more likely with a team at #4?
I’ll get playing time with Boise State and I could be a standout. That’s my future. NFL material.
Yeah, but do I want to hear crap about hoods and felons every time I hang out back home? I’ll already be defending the blue turf and the SOS. Do I want to defend my team’s criminal records, too? Am I already thinking they're criminals? That’s not fair. But I guess I am. This sucks.
I want to make my Mom proud of me. At Boise I can be on tv and she can brag about me.
Yeah, but will she have to tell her friends that I’m really not a bad kid? Does that mean the rest are? Man I wish Coach Peterson would speak out again. “Comparing apples” doesn’t cut it.
*How nasty is it that perception becomes reality? Thanks, SI. Or is Joe the only recruit that is stressed out by uncertainty and turmoil? OBNUG, talk him in off the ledge, please.
