The down side is he gets to go to school in beautiful Beaver Falls, but great for him doing what he is.

I'd hate to guard him.

Yet they couldn't give him #43?

As a 43 year old man, I'm going to live vicariously through him the rest of basketball season, even though I can't stand basketball, am short and white.

There is no way you're going to intimidate him. He'll just run your weak punk kid ass over and fark your girlfriend.

I wonder if he's older than any of the coaches.

I suppose he has his own car, and beer and pizza money. Probably even his own microwave. Chicks dig guys with their own microwaves.

If I struck it rich. I'd drop everything and walk on at Pace or some other small school football team. It is something I think about a lot. I still have three years of eligibility and I think it would be a true honor, even if I never played but dressed.

As someone who just turned 44 today and plays basketball twice a week, I salute you good sir.

You didn't happen to score 4 touchdowns in a high school game?

I remember George Mason have this badass military guy on their team one year when they player Nova in the tournament. No idea what his name was.

Sidebar. Paulina Gretzky. Yes, she needs a sammich. Yes, I'd hit it. Tell me you didn't notice (you lie).

14.2.1 Five-Year Rule - A student-athlete shall complete his or her seasons of participation within five calendar years from the beginning of the semester or quarter in which the student-athlete first registered for a minimum full-time program of studies in a collegiate institution, with time spent in the armed services, on official church missions or with recognized foreign aid services of the U.S. government being excepted. For foreign students, service in the armed forces or on an official church mission of the student's home country is considered equivalent to such service in the United States.


This guy gets an exception because he was in the military.

That was a horribly written article.

I am actually shocked colleges don't try to recruit men that are in their late 20s/early 30s and well built that are eligible... Most gyms are full of guys like that. I realize football is a lot of skill, too, but if a guy played high school ball, didn't go to college, and is built like a tank at age 30, why not try to recruit him?

I coach squirts for hockey and after some heavy skating, I can confirm this.

If I remember correctly... an athlete can hit his physical peak around 28yo, then it's all downhill. And that is after years of training. A 30+ yo won't possess the speed, or the endurance as a younger guy. Also, I don't think many people over mid-twenties and beyond are "available" for college. They'd have to play for free, and attend college full time, and work a job to maintain their standard of living. And when they graduated, nobody in the NFL would want their old ass.
