Cock-a-Doodle-Doo Perrilloux to JSU


Ryan Perrilloux will be attending Jacksonville State University next season according to the B-Ham News, ESPN and Perrilloux. But, why should you care? (Image: Visitors Section at JSU)

Because schadenfreude makes my heart warm and because Georgia Tech opens its season against the JSU Gamecocks. Frankly, I had seen the other JSU QBs in action up close and personal, and they were positively wretched. Luckily for JSU, all of those bums are off the roster. According to ESPN:
He'll have a clear shot at the Jacksonville State starting job, though. The Gamecocks' 2007 starter, Cedric Johnson, was kicked off the team after the season for violating team rules. Two other quarterbacks left the team and another graduated.
I'm not going to kid you. Tech should beat Jax State by three touchdowns. But a single, ultra athletic QB facing a defense with a new system and a fumble prone GT offense could make things much more interesting than the GT faithful would like.

As for motivation in that game, there are two coaches walking this planet who know more about the pain of losing to Div I-AA opponents in season openers than anyone else. Those men are Lloyd Carr and JSU head coach Jack Crowe. Crowe was the head coach at Arkansas in 1992 when the Razorbacks dropped the season opener to The Citadel. Crowe was unemployed by Sunday following the loss. That doesn't make him a great coach. Just a guy that knows both sides of the David and Goliath story.

I honestly don't expect Perrilloux to make it through the season at JSU without incident, and I frankly don't care. However, I do think that he can stay out of trouble long enough to start the season opener in this one.

My younger brother just graduated from JSU last year...I might have to see about some JSU alumni seats for this farce...

And, oh merciful God, if JSU manages to rise up and strike the Philistine Nerds between the taped glasses, the entire world will be able to howl for years about the year that Yech got slapped by a bunch of Cocks...

Obviously, week one, ESPN Gameday - enough said.

The guy who works in the cubicle next door to mine is a Jax State alumnus, and he just kind of shook his head and smiled at this latest bit of news. He told me about how the previous starting QB had been kicked off the team for being a discipline problem, which makes it even more ironic that their chosen solution to the problem would be a sociopath like Perrilloux.

Still, I've got a soft spot for JSU since Bobo was once an assistant there, and if Perrilloux can somehow upset the Jackets, or even make the game uncomfortably close . . . well, I'll just sit back and enjoy it.

So you're going to replace a QB you kicked off the team for violating team rules with a QB who was kicked ANOTHER team for violating team rules? BRILLIANT!
