Griz Land Exiled OK Guard


J.D. Quinn, one of the players that was suspended by the Oklahoma Sooners for being paid by a local car dealership without actually working there, has informed sources that he will attend the University of Montana. Quinn is a very talented guard who started for OU before his dismissal.
His colleague in this "scandal" is Rhett Bomar, the talented starting QB for the Sooners who earned MVP honors in his bowl game last year. Bomas has landed with Sam Houston State University, another I-AA school.

Here is the quote from the article, in New York Times: " Both players were declared ineligible by Oklahoma. J.D. Quinn will attend Montana."

I believe these two signings reflect poorly on I-AA, and did nothing to help the stereotype that we are the fallout league for players who got in trouble for various reasons at their I-A institutions. Normally the transfers with baggage aren't in the national spotlight with as much press as these two players were and are.

    Sure it reflects poorly, but so do a lot of things I-AA does. Come on, I-AA schools practice squad prostitues whoring themselves out to get stomped for 6 figures. The main point is, we take what we can and sometimes this means really takin it in the rear.
