Just before the season started I was over at Ben Davis for their annual team picnic and scrimmage. Running Back Johnny Adams told me that he’d just committed to Ball State. After the first three weeks of the season I told boyz that there was no way he would make it to Muncie.

Johnny Adams was just too good to play at Ball State bruh. Well playas…turns out that other cats with the power to make it happen thought the same thing. On Sunday ole boy announced on Twitter that he was goin’ to the Pac12 to play for the California Golden Bears!!! And who in their right mind is mad at him for choosin’ to play big time college football instead of goin’ to the MAC?

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Johnny was the best runnin’ back I saw play this season and he was the most fluent cat runnin’ rock. That means that he looked good movin’, changin’ directions and had the vision of a bobcat. The dun could flat out run the ball.

He finished the season with 1,421 yards on 140 carries for an average of 10.2 yards for carry and 20 touchdowns!!! Wheredeydodatat? Ball Who? The duns in Muncie knew they didn’t have a chance at signin’ him once he got started this year.

As a junior he only rushed for 384 yards on 78 carries so they swooped in before anybody else knew what he could do. After I saw the dun play for one quarter I knew that he was special. He knew how to flat out run the rock and boy could he stick his foot in the ground and turn it up field.

It was like lettin’ a race horse out of the stable. Once he was gone he was gone bruh and great for him. He gets to play at the highest level of football in a Power 5 Conference and he gets great weather all year around. Congrats lil’ homie and make us proud!! I’ve got brother that lives 20 minutes away from that campus and he’s already lookin’ forward to watchin’ Johnny play. Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

2) Ole boy: noun – the person that I’m currently talkin’ about.

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”

The caption under the photo isn’t real but its real talk!



  1. The MAC is a pathway to the NFL for guys like Adams.
    I wish him success in California but also know he will be under constant pressure of being recruited over and finding a way onto the playing field.
    It can happen to you at any school but less likely at a Group of Five.

  2. So I guess Ball State is not good enough for Broc Thompson either? I seem to remember you talking him up a few weeks ago.

      • Come on Man no one expected BSU to keep Adams. He was never 100% committed to BSU thats why he is recruitment remained open the entire time. Any logical person understands why he would pick Cal no problems with that. Just think your article comes off as slighting BSU so my question stands is it good enough for Thompson?
