Interesting facts

Ok, I know the contreversy over Brooks maybe being stupid, dumb, etc., but I came across some information about Horn that was kinda weird to hear. I just moved to a city in Virginia, and we got a new head coach for my High School football team. He so happened to coach Joe at Itawamba (MS) JC, and he told me the story of Horn. He signed originally with Clemson, but didn't make good enough grades. So he signed with Itawamba, and still didn't get a degree or pass enough. Anyone think maybe our whole team is like this? Plus, this is something for you Brooks fans to gnaw and make fun of the Horn fans .

Also, did anyone watch the 2000 QB challenge, the one where Brooks took 2nd? He looked good out there, finishing ahead of QB's like Flutie, Plummer, and Peyton Manning. He also was the most vocal of the bunch too. He lost in the last round to Jeff Garcia, BTW.

RE: Interesting facts

Why would Brooks' fans want to gnaw at Horn fans? He might not be good in the classroom, but he sure catches a lot of footballs. I don't believe a lot of people have degrees in the NFL. They are making a better living doing what they do best... play football. If you really think about it, lost of underclassmen leave early and are doing pretty fine for themselves. They can always take summer classes or finish school after their career ends.

No one questions Brooks physical attributes, he's extremely gifted. Everyone is just disgusted that he hasn't put it all together and taken this team to the next level.

The title of this thread is misleading. This is neither interesting nor facts.

RE: Interesting facts

Yeah, very true. I was just putting my two cents in. Its weird though because most of our best players aren't the birghtest, but the best all around athletes.

RE: Interesting facts

:P

At least it gave me something to read. It's so dead during the offseasons after the draft. We need some more camp news!

Had one of those since he got his number when we first drafted him. I hope he makes me proud to where it now. It's all faded and stuff. I got my eye on a white Deuce and a white A-Mac.
