whoa!
..hold on there...
I'm not "jumping to conclusions" nor "throwing spears".You stated that he chose USF because USF was "up and coming" rather than going to LSU or Auburn. USF can be accused of many things, but never of being "up and coming" football powerhouse. The SEC is the biggest stage in college football. If you ball and you get a chance to play in the biggest stage in college football with 2 solid programs, you are telling me you are going to forgo the better academic institution (LSU) and the biggest stage in college football to stay close to mommy and your buds and attend a school like USF?
To me, that doesn't sound right.

.. and in relation to Central Florida, is not like Louisiana or Alabama are in the Pacific North West. They're a bus ride away.

He better hope he gets drafted by the Bucs or the Dolphins.. Jacksonville would be too far...

Re: Mike Jenkins

Mercedes...i'm just trying to add to the forum and provide some insight into Jenkins (constructively)...your idea is to bash the kid...for all you know the Saints may select him...i realize however that some of us will like him and some won't...I merely offered his selection as a backup to us not getting Rivers...thank you...your opinion of Jenkins has been heard loud and clear

Re: Mike Jenkins

actually jenkins didnt choose USF over Florida or LSU.. if you look at his recruiting page on rivals.com it shows a few top schools but it doesnt even say if they offered him a scholarship.. and considering he was the 45th ranked CB in the nation, only a 3 star prospect.. im sure those schools were looking at higher ranked prospects
