Before I post about the Gopher Football Team Breaking my heart, I read this over on the Star Tribune and I just had to share:
"Gray is a Gopher again

MarQueis Gray has passed his ACT and is headed back to the Univerisity of Minnesota.
”Yeah, I passed,” Gray said in a text message this morning. ”I plan on coming back when the boal practices start.”
Gray, an Indianapolis native, was one of the most highly-rated dual-threat quarterbacks on the recruiting scene coming out of Ben Davis High School. He began practice with the Gophers during training camp, but had to re-take his ACT test after his test score was flagged by the ACT board. Gray took the test again Oct. 11 and posted a qualifying score.
Gray won’t be able to practice with the team during the Gophers’ preparation for their bowl game, but he will be on-campus. He plans on enrolling in school in January and would be eligible to practice with the Gophers in the spring."
SERIOUSLY?!?!? He mis-spelled BOWL ?????? ugh. I know all the athletes of the world will be banding together with their, English teachers don’t have to tackle 300 pound dummies to get a degree, so why should we have to tackle 300 vocab words to get a degree logic, but come on.
At least he passed the ACT, this is like the 4th time he has taken it. I am sure most of the Gopher plays he needs to master are X’s and O’s and arrows and not a lot of words so we should be fine, right? Besides, if he has a phone with a full QWERTY key board, the A and W are pretty close and maybe those big quarterback hands touched the wrong key, right? *insert deep breathing here*
