I saw a comment on a statesman article posing a similar question. I don't know the person, obviously, so I have no idea where he/she heard of such a rumor but if this is a real thing, please make it general knowledge. If you don't, the terrorists win.
So, maybe I'm getting greedy. After all, with Ajayi, Fields, and Demas all coming in...it's safe to say that we have an embarrassment of riches at the RB position. Having said that, I still remember watching MJ's gamefilm and getting goosebumps. The kid is electric, and I can't help but think that if there's any possible way we can have him be a part of our team (you really, really never know what can happen--see DJ Harper 2009/2010), provided he fulfills whatever academic or character requirements that he may or may not have fallen short of in the past, we simply cannot ignore someone of his talents.
I'm going to throw a stat out there. 450 yards and 5 td's. What do you think those numbers are? A decent backup's stats? A solid freshman season that got him on his varsity HS coach's radar? Nope. Neither of those things. Those were his rushing stats for (ready?) ONE game. That's IJ vs Oregon State in 2006 PLUS another 210 yards!!!
So again, if these rumors are all a cruel hoax, someone PLEASE let me know asap. I just don't think I can handle another man-crush ending with being...well, crushed, if this is all just hearsay. Or some a-hole dUI plot to damage the hearts and minds of Bronco Nation. I mean, it would be that level of sinister.
Inquiring minds need to know if this is real. Input please!!!
