An End of the Year Thought: Why Should 2007 Be Any Different?

I realize I previously stated that 2006 was the Year of the Bear. In actuality, it is the Year of the Dog, a very fitting moniker for another season of B football. The latest indignity we have had to suffer is the Kinne fiasco. We lost our top recruit to UT, after he had verbally and very publicly committed to us. That's bad enough, but the cherry on top is his dad is the linebackers coach for the B. We lost a kid that is the son of a coach. The worst part of it is, based on my knowledge of UT's roster, Kinne has almost no chance to ever start at Texas. You have to figure Colt is the man for the next three years unless he is hurt. He was very impressive for a freshman. Behind him is red-shirt frosh Sherrod Harris. Throw in John Chiles into the 2007 recruiting class, and it looks like Kinne would only have a chance to compete to start his final year at UT. Playing QB for Baylor must suck, but it has to be better than being on the bench your entire career. I would think so, but maybe not. He would have had the chance to be a 3-4 year starter at the B. He could still show his skills at the B, if he had any desire to go to the next level. Jay Cutler still managed to get drafted in the 1st round after playing at Vandy.

I bet this does wonders for our recruiting efforts. Hopefully, Kinne Sr. doesn't get sent on many home visits. I can see it now, parents wondering what to do and looking to Sr. for some assistance. "Coach Kinne, What do you think? What would you do in our place? What would you advise your son to do?"

I feel like this Bengals fan.

"I've been here before, look it an easy choice, Hook 'em. I'll tell Coach Morris you've made the right choice. He understands."

    Holy shit, what a cluster****.
