Everyone knows the whole “student-athlete” thing is a crock. Of course most student-athletes I think get that they’re at least supposed to keep up the pretense. Evidently Cardale Jones didn’t get the memo. The third-string Ohio State QB let the veil slip early Friday morning in a tweet that has since been deleted but thankfully was captured and posted on Deadspin.
Classes? We’re talking about classes? What classes do they even have at Ohio State? Advanced game film doctoring? Maybe Cardale could take that. If he’s bored with the usual fake football player classes. Maybe they have a tattooing course. Then he could tattoo all his teammates and they wouldn’t have to trade stuff for them. That would save a lot of scandal down the road.
Actually, if you want to stretch a bit, there’s a way to look at this whole thing that makes it seem refreshing. You could take the “Cardale Jones is no hypocrite” angle. Cause we know the whole student-athlete thing is hypocrisy at its finest. Unfortunately I don’t think Cardale was trying to make some big statement here. He’s just not very bright. Since this morning his Twitter has gone private. “I got hacked” statement in five…four…three…two…one…
