Terrelle Pryor Quitting Football?
Ohio State Buckeyes QB, Terrelle Pryor has been showered with pre-season accolades and expectations since he arrived in Columbus. The problem, however, is that he has yet to live up to the expectations in his three years at Ohio State. The Big Ten post-season awards were announced yesterday and Terrelle Pryor, despite being voted as the pre-season player of the year, Pryor fell short in the post-season awards.
Michigan QB Denard Robinson was named Offensive Player of the Year and Northwestern QB Dan Persa was named as the 1st team QB. Wisconsin QB, Scott Tolzien was named the 2nd team QB, leaving Terrelle Pryor on the outside looking in.
The Buckeyes lead the Big 10 with ten all-Big Ten selections, but Terrelle Pryor only received honorable mention.
First, let me say that I completely agree with the awards. Pryor has done nothing to warrant to the attention and hype that’s been placed on him. Is that his fault? No. But this is….
In yet another of a rash of immature and whiny comments by the Buckeyes QB, Pryor lets us all know that he’s unhappy with being shut out of the Big Ten awards. Obviously, he’s just whining and won’t really quit, but this just shows you the depth of his immaturity at this point.
Like I said, he has done NOTHING to warrant any sort of accolades and I sincerely hope the Pryor for Heisman BS stops. All year Buckeye fans have been telling me that he deserves an invite to New York.
Look, Pryor is an incredible physical specimen. But he’s an immature, whiny, bratty, child. He has not come close to utilizing his immense talents and until he does, he deserves no such accolades. Each year he’s give pre-season awards as the player of the year (which are asinine by the way) and each year he fails to deliver.
As a fan, I hope he wakes up and grows up and puts his talent to work. But at this point, I don’t see it happening.
