The pressure on highly touted freshman running back Isaiah Crowell this season at Georgia increased with the announcement that Caleb King would be academically ineligible to play in 2011. Recent reports would suggest that King does not plan on suiting up in a Bulldogs uniform again, and will be testing the (supplemental) draft waters.

Seth Emerson, of the Macon Telegraph, reported on Sunday that a source close to King has said the to-be senior has decided to enter the NFL supplemental draft. The date of the supplemental draft has not been announced yet due to the lockout, though league officials have confirmed the event will take place. King will join former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor in the group of players hoping to become a late addition to an NFL roster.

If a team selects a player in the supplemental draft, they will forfeit their selection in that round of the following year's draft. Instead of the usual draft order, teams are grouped by win total and a franchise may submit a bid on what round they would be willing to pick a certain player. NFL teams will have to decide first if they want to add Pryor or King, and then at what cost.

Maybe C.K. should try his hand at the UFL, get some experince and after he stepped his game up, try out for the NFL.

Seriously?....the guy was a flop at Georgia. Why would he think he's capable of playing in the NFL?...the truth is most Georgia fans had already given up on Caleb King....you'd be hard pressed to find anyone from Georgia who thinks losing Caleb King is significant....im not convinced he could contribute in the CFL let alone the NFL.

Do you think college football would exist if there was a minor league system for the NFL?  Would you want to watch it considering the best talent would be going to the minor leagues instead of college? Football brings revenue to a university that helps build facilities for all of the students. Those scholarships that are "wasting taxpayer money" are essentially investments by the universities.

Sure people would watch college games if the "top talent" was in the minor leagues.The games very few would watch would be the minor league if they were even on TV.Even less would go to the games.

For people who don't routinely college football.
who can't make the grade or does something improperly is automatically considered a "thug".
Football and basketball are, by far, the biggest fillers of police logs around the country
Being "thug" is
n't just a label for those who are in gangs
With all of that said, majority of athletes aren't 'thugs'
its ridiculous that a lot of these kids are labeled as 'thugs'
It is them who decided that education should be less important than school.


For people who don't routinely watch (I'm guessing) college football.
Who can't make the grade or who does something improper, they should automatically be considered a "thug"
Football and basketball are by far the biggest fillers of police logs (? can't fathom a guess)
Being a "thug" isn't just a label
With all of that said, the majority of athletes
It's ridiculous
It is They who have decided.

According to your not speak English definition, you're a "thug".  Welcome to the family Laughing

Why?  He was a total bust at UGA.  He had one good ame agaisnt Georgia Tech.  Other than that, he never lived up to his five-star recruit hype.  My best guess is he will be sitting around the phone waiting for it to ring for a long time.

'Thug'

For people who don't routinely college football, anyone who can't make the grade or does something improperly is automatically considered a "thug".  Unfortunately, I can see why people make these connections.  Ever listened to some of the top recruits speak in an interview?  How they wear their clothes?  Pop on twitter and read some of their tweets (and yes I know it's shorthand, doesn't mean every word needs to be spelt incorrectly).

It doesn't get any better once they move onto pro sports.  Football and basketball are, by far, the biggest fillers of police logs around the country - college AND professional athletes.  They still can't speak, spell, or manage their own finances.  

Being "thug" is
n't just a label for those who are in gangs, carry weapons, or steal property.  It's wearing your pants down to your a$$, getting caught with drugs multiple times, not being able to speak English.

With all of that said, majority of athletes aren't 'thugs', and some people just can't hack it in school...no big deal.  But for people who can't believe, or think its ridiculous that a lot of these kids are labeled as 'thugs', take the issue up with the NCAA and big time college football schools.  It is them who decided that education should be less important than school.
