BoBo Circus

The continuing saga of BoBo (the basketball player, not the clown) is getting slightly more interesting.  As everyone knows, Trent Johnson is making a push to keep BoBo at LSU by dragging his feet on processing the release request.  Not much more to add here, except this quote from Johnson in The Shreveport Times (link):

"He's a very good young man, but is he by any means Shaquille O'Neal? No, he's not," Johnson said. "It's going to take it's time. I've never been in a situation where I'm going to beg."

Jill Painter also linked to it.

I am no genius when it comes to recruiting or dealing on a day-to-day basis with the psyche of "student" athletes, but it seems more than a little damaging to LSU's chances with der BoBo to come out with quotes like this one, no?

By the way, awesome new format for the site. When an old guy like me can block quote and insert links, you know it is easy.  Reminds of the old days with word processing apps going from inserting formatting in the text to WYSIWYG.

WHISTLE! (as Cheatie Peetie, Jr. likes to say)
