Peyton Manning is fond of "idiot kickers", well perhaps Urban Meyer is about to become fond of "idiot 3rd string QB's." Why? Well, Ohio State's 3rd string QB Cardale Jones decided to unload on having to go to class recently via his twitter account: Rob Fischer @thefishnation Here's the tweet from Ohio State QB Cardale Jones. He certainly wants to take the student out of student-athlete pic.twitter.com/2Ev4PAbw 5 Oct 12 Reply Retweet Favorite I get that sometimes classes can be hard and can be a drag, lord knows we've all sat through them if you've attended college of any sort, but dude realizes he's getting a free education, right? Of course you could argue he's clearly not getting an education in English by his tweet, but that's beyond the point here. Seriously, tell you what Cardale - you can give up your scholarship and allow someone paying a ton of money to attend school at tOSU to take on a scholarship. Chances are they might appreciate it and actually do something with it. Am I naive enough to think that all athletes, especially football players, are in college to get an education first and foremost? No, but I also know enough football players on scholarship that actually take their educations seriously, even star athletes - guys like Jared Abbrederis, Rex Burkhead, James Vandenberg, and Josh Johnson have managed to do it. Hell, even Tyrell Pryor saw fit to attempt to get an education - earning academic all-Big Ten honors while attending classes at Ohio State. Sure, you could question the validity of it, but the point is even a guy who was dumb enough to sell clothes, rings, etc. at least saw fit to keep his mouth shut and go to class, pay attention in class, and get good grades. Here's a piece of advice from every person who aspired to be a college athlete to all those on scholarship: Shut the hell up, go to class and if you don't like it - leave college. I'm sure there are plenty of kids willing to hold a clipboard for 12 Saturday's a year and earn a free education from a top notch university. Sorry, but stupid people piss me off and Cardale, you are one of the stupid people that piss me off.
