Allen Bailey on his way to visit Bill Bidwill While working out at the University of Miami on Tuesday, Edgerrin James hinted that he might want out of Arizona. You sort of have to read between the lines:
...He pointed at a framed photo of himself in a Cardinals uniform and said the picture needed to change. You could see it when he found one of his Cardinals jerseys lying over an office chair and said the uniform was right where it needed to be -- near the trash can. And that bitterness surfaced again when James welcomed Cardinals safety and fellow Miami alum Antrel Rolle into the Hurricanes' weight room by shouting, "You're about to have Arizona all to yourself."
There's a bigger picture issue here. There's a grown man tirading about the place and he can't even pick up after himself? What the hell is Edgerrin James' stuff doing scattered all over the Miami football offices and weight room? Framed pictures? Jerseys? Oh, right. He sort of owns the place.
At any rate, we fully support Edgie in his campaign to get the hell out of the sticks and onto a team that will utilize him properly, like giving him the ball every single play. Bumper stickers coming soon.
Funnily enough, an eternity is how long most Gators players take to graduate The University of Florida is petitioning state legislature to open up a place of final rest - possibly with options even inside Ben Hill Griffin Stadium - so that alumni anxious to be sprinkled or buried there can have it done legally (climbing fences is hard for people with their heads up their asses) and at large expense to their estates. As usual, the University of Miami is a few steps ahead: back in the day, you could actually go ahead and be killed inside the Orange Bowl for free, without even having to ask.
But do they know where London is? BLAH BLAH IGNORE THE REALLY HIGH GRADUATION RATES (BEST IN THE NFL!) AND A CARING ADMINISTRATION HAVEN'T YOU SEEN THE '91 COTTON BOWL THESE GODLESS THUGS ARE A MENACE. See, I've gotten it out of the way for you!
