An Oklahoma freshman football player, once one of the top recruits in the country, is kicked off the team after making this freestyle on YouTube:



I recently got into a heated discussion in my gym with a fervent Penn State alum regarding the behavioral troubles they've been having with some football players. She consistently insisted that the kids were 18 to 21 years old, and that everyone's an idiot at that age. Me being the goody-two-shoes I was at that age, I kept saying, "Not everyone."

Josh Jarboe knew what he was doing. He knew what he was doing when amassed the criminal record he had, and he knew what he was doing when the camera's red dot showed up and he started rapping. He knew what he was doing when it ended up on YouTube (even if the friend posted it without his knowledge, it wouldn't still be up there if he didn't want it to be).

He knew what he had to lose.

When was he going to take responsibility?

He now has blown an enormous chance, and he very well may never recover from this. Sure, he may transfer to a Division II school that'll be willing to take a chance on him, and certainly, many of those guys have made it in the NFL. But at the very least, he's cost himself money.

Let's hope his recovery is better than his rap. I'm praying for the brother.
