Why Couldn't We Just Take Chris Todd's Scholarship Away?
i didn't post about this yesterday because i was too busy dominating the recruiting trail for Dynasty Mode Auburn on NCAA 2009 in preparation for my run at another Fantasy Video Game World National Tile. how am i doing? we'll just say i've got nobody lower than a 4 star signed up and i've got the top 3 Runningbacks in the nation all coming to Auburn. so yeah, Video Game Auburn has no worries. they can easily tell walk-on punters to take a hike because i've got a 5 star defensive tackle i'm gonna stash on the bench for a few seasons before i unleash his 90+ rated ass on the SEC....but REAL AUBURN has no such luxuries...
....or at least that's what you'd think until the Chizik decided to tell Hero of 2008's Season Of Death, one Mr. Clinton Durst to get lost because there would be no scholarship for him this year (even though Tuberville had promised to award Durst with one). this is kind of like that part in Rudy when the new coach comes in and tells Rudy he won't be dressing for any games his Senior year...or however that part went, i forget because i hated that movie (not because it was about Notre Dame, but because Rudy sucked at football and still got to play in a college football game). but something tells me nobody is gonna step in and offer Durst their scholarship.
quick question. why can't Durst just have one of the scholarships that was being used by a player from the '08 class who left the team like Raven Gray, Deron Furr, Jermaine Johnson, etc....? i don't understand. please explain.
anyways i'm starting to veer off track and lose my focus. honestly this makes little to no sense whatsoever. Durst was the 3rd best punter in the SEC last year and without him the Tigers would not have beaten Mississippi State or Tennessee which means they'd have been winless in the SEC and i would have shot my face off. you could argue that Durst was actually Auburn's MVP last season...which is pretty fucking awesome for a kid who was a walk-on freshman soccer player that had never played a down of organized football in his entire life!!! but no, the Chizik doesn't need him. thanks for the effort last year kid, but we need to give one of those scholarships to 2 star defensive line prospect that'll probably never see the field and will transfer to Valdosta State in a couple of years anyways. fucking Auburn! it's like rooting for a one legged midgit in an ass kicking contest sometimes.
anyways good luck Durst. thank you for the two wins you gave us last year and for keeping us in a few of the other games that we coulda won. you are easily my favorite punter of all time...even if we just had 1 terrible year together.
a 3 internet salute for you, young man.
