William Hazlitt, the English writer, once said, “The only vice that cannot be forgiven is hypocrisy. The repentance of a hypocrite is itself hypocrisy.” Thomas Fuller, the English churchman and historian, gave it to us like this, “We ought to see far enough into a hypocrite to see even his sincerity.” Then Tennessee Williams, the playwright, broke it down like a playa at a pimp convention when he spit, “The only thing worse than a liar is a liar that’s also a hypocrite!”
Well playas…I don’t know how much lyin’ ole dull Nick Saban did yesterday but he’s definitely a hypocrite! On Thursday ole boy did the unthinkable when he blasted a 19 year old kid for decidin’ to leave Alabama to play elsewhere. Redshirt freshman quarterback and former 5-star recruit, Blake Barnett, withdrew from school this week because he lost his startin’ job in the season opener to true freshman, Jalen Hurts. Barnett will enroll in a junior college (JC) where if he graduates next may with at least a 2.0 GPA he’ll be eligible to play at an FBS school exactly one year from now.
Here’s what a GROWN man that makes more than $7 million per year had to say about somebody else’s kid that no longer plays for him on his weekly radio show:
“It’s one of those things where I think the culture has changed a little bit. I think there’s a certain pride people have in competition. There’s certain things that I was taught growing up about not quitting and seeing things through. I think if I would have come home and told my dad that I was going to quit the team, I think he would have kicked me out of the house. I don’t think I’d have a place to stay.”
He goes on to say, “My dad used to always say, ‘The grass is always greener on top of the septic tank.’ So it always looks better someplace else. So you think, instead of facing your fears and really overcoming adversity and making yourself better through the competition, you go someplace else thinking it will be better there. But until you face your fears, you’re always going to have some of those issues or problems.”
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! First of all, that’s called tryin’ to bully a boy because you’ve got the juice to talk crazy. However, boyz are actually sittin’ here listenin’ to Nick blast this kid for quittin’ like they didn’t see him lie to boyz for 5 weeks at the end of 2006 goin’ into January of 2007. He categorically denied even bein’ interested in the Bama job before leavin’ the Dolphins after only two seasons.
Now I get why he couldn’t tell a boy that he was goin’ to take the gig because he still had a team to coach. However, a lie is a lie is a lie AND he quit!! So to blast a dun for quittin’ is hypocritical to say the least. He’s mad because Blake was smart enough to find the loop hole in the foolishness that is the NCAA rule book that would allow him to speed up the time he’d have to sit out. That’s why Nick’s fired up bruh. He doesn’t have a 5-star cat that knows the offense sittin’ in the cut in the event Jalen Hurts actually gets hurt. C’mon!!
Hey Nick, that’s somebody’s kid and you don’t own him bruh!! I know that the fake media-types down in Tuscaloosa can’t call you out because you’re the the dun in the “Emperor’s New Clothes” and anybody that doesn’t agree with you will be banned from the program. And since you’re the only game in the state boyz have to remain loyal to you or just plain keep quiet. Well playboy! I don’t!!!
Barnett did his freakin’ homework and figured out that it didn’t make sense to sit on the bench, practice all season and wait until the season is over to announce that he was dippin’. Why? Because he’d actually be sittin’ out the entire 2016 and 2017 seasons before he’d touch the darn field again. If you transfer in college football and try to play at the same level, and in this case, the FBS, he’d technically have to sit out a full season. He wouldn’t be eligible to play until 2018. By dippin’ now and goin’ to the JC he’ll be eligible to play Week 5 next season. Loop hole Nick!!!
You aren’t hollerin’ about all of your coachin’ friends out here that quit on their teams every year and take better jobs! Why? Because it is what it is!! So Blake Barnett should be able to bounce without hearin’ you throwin’ him under the bus. Why? Because it is what it is.
And you better be careful talkin’ crazy about boyz leavin’ the program because you already know that college football is cyclical. All it takes is one dun to tell the secrets of the foolishness that goes on when it comes to boosters and over the top alumni that do any and everything to latch on to the program. All you need is a dull Maurice Clarett or Marcus Dupree to tell it all and the Kingdom comes crashin’ down. So I say let that dun dip and leave him be. Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Spit: verb – to say
2) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
3) Put it where the goats can get it: verb phrase – to make it as elementary as possible. To put it at ground level so everyone can understand it.
