SEC RB commits show loyalty at the barber's

In this era of high-profile decommitments, last-minute switches and general suspicion of anything a recruit says before things become official on Signing Day, it can be tough for big-time recruits to prove their loyalties.

But a pair of Georgia running backs bound for the SEC may have found a way. Short of getting a tattoo -- and who wants a tattoo when the newest college football scandal could bring down your future coach at any time? -- there's probably no gesture that says "Yes, I am fully committed to my school of choice" like getting that school's name shaved into your head, right?

Earlier this week, we already showed you Blackshear (Ga.) fullback and Georgia commitment Quayvon Hicks doing exactly that:

But it's possible Hicks has been one-upped by Hillgrove tailback Kenyan Drake, an Alabama commit who now proudly features the Tide logo on the back of his head:

Let us doubt these fine young men's commitments no more, and humbly ask that a future Wyoming commitment somewhere is paying attention.

SEC RB commits show loyalty at the barber's

C'mon, CBS, can you grow a sense of humor?  You play "musical reputation" with me all the time, and you're very tiresome with it.  Yesterday I was a 98, today I'm a 97.  Not that this is meaningful to me given how it's all political, but my initial entry in this blog was intended to poke fun at the storyline of this article, in regard to the overall obsession with alleged wrong doings over all CFB.  I was making a joke, get it?!  Ha!  Can you do that?  Ha!  Ha!

This story has a moral to it: go to Kenyan Drake's barber!!  For one thing, he's much more artistic, and secondly, there is no mistake of using the Nike logo as in the overall "do" of Quayvon Hicks!  Which makes Hicks' "do" a "don't"!  lol!!  I'm surprised more of you abundant SEC-haters haven't noticed this and questioned it, with all the blind criticism you grind out daily.
