Since the Georgia Bulldogs beat Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl on Monday night. Darn near every news outlet in America has been runnin’ with the foolish statement made by the Georgia linebacker, Davin Bellamy, “Humble yourself” when he was shoutin’ at Baker Mayfield as he exited the field. Now keep in mind that nobody knew this his name before he told Mayfield to humble himself.
Here’s why what he said made no sense and it’s crazy that everybody’s jumpin’ on his bandwagon. Baker Mayfield is a competitor with a huge chip on his shoulder. He’s virtually done the impossible multiple times as an athlete and you’re askin’ him to be humble? Think about that for a minute Bruh.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! The dun took his high school team in Texas to the Class 4A State title Game and won it. After the state championship and finishin’ his career with 6,255 yards, 62 touchdowns and only 8 interceptions he was only listed as a three star recruit and didn’t receive a scholarship.
He walked-on as a true freshman at Texas Tech and started Game 1!!! He’s believed to be the first true freshman walk-on to start at quarterback but you want him to be humble? Bein’ humble didn’t make him bet on himself when nobody else would.
Then after Tech jacked him around and didn’t put him on scholarship even after startin’ all year he bounced and went to Oklahoma!!!
Now hold on a second dawg. He didn’t get a scholarship at Texas Tech so he’s goin’ to bet on himself at OU? The same Oklahoma that is one of the most successful programs since World War II that has the highest winning percentage (.762) of any school in college football history since 1945.
The same school that’s won 7 national championships, 45 conference championships, has 162 First Team All-Americans (80 consensus), and six Heisman Trohphy winners. Did I mention that he won the startin’ job at this blue blood of college football and he’s one of the All-Americans and Heisman Trophy winners that I just mentioned? As a freakin’ walk-on?
He’s the only person in the history of college football to walk-on and win the Heisman but you’re tellin’ him to be humble. He’s done the impossible and you’re tellin’ to be humble? You sound crazy!!!
He’s only been able to accomplish what he’s accomplished because he was so cocky!! In order to be great you’ve got to delusional enough to believe that you’re great before anybody else even sees that you’re good.
So my point here playa, is that it’s impossible for him to be humble. If he were humble he’d still be at Texas Tech beggin’ them for that darn scholarship.
The fact that he’s not humble is the very reason that he was playin’ in the national semifinal just a few plays away from playin’ for a national title next week in Atlanta.
Have you ever sat around and talked to professional athletes? They aren’t humble bruh. The fact that they’re in the pros makin’ millions of dollars doin’ somethin’ that 99.999% of folks can’t do puts them mentally and emotionally in a place that you and I can’t begin to understand. I’m in locker rooms all of the time and boyz are nowhere near bein’ humble. They believe that they are the best at what they do even if they aren’t and that’s why they’re at the level they are.
Baker Mayfield carries around the fact that he had to walk-on at two schools in order for boyz to respect him. So guess what playa? He cares nothin’ about a linebacker that nobody ever heard of before Monday night tellin’ him to humble himself. Great players always play with an attitude whether you recognize it or not. Stop me when I start lyin’!
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!”
