Speaking Truth Means Jail.

In the course of human events, sometimes you have to reveal a Truth so important that it might require you to go to jail. This post apparently violates this important law:

Tulane said yesterday that Nick Cannon, QB, is out for the season.

Speaking of relationships, here is one that probably has to end. Everyone seems to think Cannon is a great kid. And as far as I am concerned he can stay around Tulane forever.

But this is the third year in a row he is hurt- and the few times he is healthy he hasn't been very good.

If this kid wants to play football, he ought to transfer. Just because he can't play I-A doesn't mean that he couldn't play college football at I-AA or wherever- if it is still important to him.

A change of scenery would be a good thing for his football career. Go somewhere he can realistically expect to play if healthy. Here he starts as the "hurt 5th QB who isn't very good". There simply has to be a better place for him to start than that label, right?

I bet that is not exactly a unique insight around Tulane either. So, at this point, I am not sure he is helping himself or Tulane.
