Blue light special?

As long as it's nobody on our schedule, I really could care less where he goes. I have some bad memories of him from last season.

Anyone who picks him up must be having real trouble at QB.

Wilson has been pretty good every time I watched him play, the biggest issue is height. That should not be an issue at the college level. Last year at this time, we were all doubtful about Auburn's QB...

No, his parents are getting a house and his girlfriend is getting a SUV... ;)

I think he's taking his baseball team's mascot name just a little over the top, "touring" his **** all around the country looking for a good place to hang his helmet for the fall.

If he ends up at an SEC team (heaven forbid), when this dude comes out of the tunnel, I wonder if maybe, just maybe, he'll hear some extremely choice messages considering his mercenary player status.

LMAO. That's good WPS...cue Default response.

In the old days the big bucks alumni response was "you tell him if he comes to (fill in the school name here) to play football, tell him we will buy a liquor store and he can rob it any time he wants to."
