Hill Future Of Aggies, Anthony Brown Calls USC Coach Racist, Adrian Peterson Wanted To Play For Cowboys
In college football, the first major game of the season kicked off between #9 South Carolina and the revamped, no Johnny Football Texas A&M Aggies. Everyone had the Gamecocks penciled in to win this one, but at the half, there was a very different story in the stadium. Texas A&M absolutely clobbered South Carolina, and it was mostly thanks to the outstanding play of their new quarterback Kenny Hill. He threw for over 500 yards, and tossed 3 touchdowns. The Aggies look very tough right now, and this is a huge blow to the Gamecocks season. Texas A&M 52, South Carolina 28.
Elsewhere in college football, a day after USC’s Josh Shaw was indefinitely suspended for lying about a heroic rescue scene, USC running back Anthony Brown quit the team. Brown is claiming that “he can’t play for a racist”, in reference to head coach Steve Sarkisian. Brown felt like he was being treated unfairly, and wanted to get out of there. Head coach Steve Sarkisian has instantly dismissed this claim, saying that anybody who knows or has met him would never call him a racist. Sarkisian said this is likely because Brown is just bitter about his current role on the team and wanted to quit football altogether.
Finally, in the NFL, it was reported that Vikings superstar running back Adrian Peterson earnestly discussed playing for Jerry Jones and the Cowboys this off-season. It didn’t work out, but Peterson said publicly he would definitely play for the Cowboys. It is very unlikely, however, that the Vikings will let him go anywhere. The Vikings actually look pretty good this pre-season, and may have a shot at the playoffs with a good Peterson year.
