    this is a great choice

    I loved Ramonce Taylor and my friends who went to Texas had similarly hilarious stories about him

    He was one of my favorite players on that national championship team. Went to the Baylor game where he scored like 5 TDs and I think he got celebration penalties on at least 2 of them if not more. I was in HS when he was at Texas, so all my stories are second hand. Older Texas posters like ColeTrickle and * J Y * can tell the stories better whenever they get on.

    one story that i have heard on numerous occasions goes as such...unlike today, we had a lot of badass guys on our team in LPs day. well it was tradition for the upperclassmen to haze the freshmen and see how tough they were by wrestling and whooping up on them. so one day a few seniors ganged up to try to haze LP in this manner, not knowing what they were getting into. LP beat the shit out of all of them and that was the only time he was ever hazed.

    oh no they picked his house for a reason for sure

    but he had those kids at his house doing small stuff for pay, they saw it as a house to steal from.

    it wasn't his past catching up with him as much as it was some opportunistic thugs trying to steal some shit. dude should have got out of florida

    I'd agree with that

    05 Rose Bowl was a classic. There's only so few games where the player utterly takes the game over. That and 03 FSU/Miami when Sean Taylor literally kept FSU on their half of the field for most of the game

    How can anybody say Steve Francis in this thread?

    18ppg, 5.5 rpg, 6apg, 1.5 spg... that's a DAMN fine career.

    labeled him as one of the injury-proned athletes that were held back in the careers.

    I mean sure, but he shouldn't even be mentioned in this thread. He had a incredible career.

    It's not really a waste of talent when a 6'3" shooting guard doesn't make it in the NBA. Not many of them do, even if some last longer than Forte did.

    Is it narrated or is there subtitles? Otherwise its like watching a foreign film and Id probably only understand 30% of what was going on.

    I did pick up this:

    Say it again!
    Drop kick me
    say it again!
    drop kick me
    say it again drop kick me
    repeat about 20 times
