This just in: Just over half of Florida State students keep it just under the legal limit

61% of FSU students maintain a blood-alcohol level of 0.6 or less

I’m not sure how The Real Project came up with that 61% figure, but, as someone that’s spent a fair amount of time in Tallahassee , and even more time around Florida State students in general, I’m calling bullshit.  Seriously, 30-40% is a far more reasonable figure, and that’s being generous.

Don’t take my word for it, though.  Just look at the overwhelming evidence provided by a quick Google search (after the jump)…

The Best of the 2011 Under Armour Senior Bowl Weigh-In Notes

January 25, 2011

Under Armour Senior BowlMore specifically, The Best of Scott Wright’s Draft Countdown Senior Bowl Weigh-in Notes, because (1) his work is the primary source for this post, and (2) it’s probably the only Senior Bowl weigh-in feature deserving of and/or awkward enough for Frump to recap.

Now, I’m not entirely sure what Mr. Wright was going for — or perhaps looking for, I guess. At times his analysis seems quite pertinent, but then, without warning, you’re greeted with something likable to the pitch of an ad that’s likely sitting in your spam folder right now.

Don’t get me wrong; I’m not trying to be critical. This approach certainly made for probably the most compelling feature on a Senior Bowl weigh-in I’ve ever read.  It just, you know, also happened to be one of the most WTF inducing as well.

Christian Ponder rocks a six packThings start off relatively innocently. Take FSU QB Christian Ponder’s “note“: Great definition with a six-pack.

A six-pack, eh? Good to know?

Then again, I guess that’s fair to highlight. After all, if we’re going to deride the Terrence Cody’s of the football meat market, we might as well take note of the guys that actually put a bit of effort into their protein shake endorsement appeal.  Take the “good” with the “bad,” right?

Well, if it ended there, I wouldn’t be frumping this post right now. As you’ll see after the jump, things began to spiral rapidly — and progressively — out of control as Draft Countdown went through the position groups…

Just Another Day in ACC Officiating

December 14, 2010

Ok, so those who are not ACC fans watching probably feel like this is shocking. However, the only thing shocking to me is that the player(who wandered from the 3 point line to half court without dribbling) wasn’t wearing Duke blue. We see this display of “keen eyes” year in and year out in the ACC. I must say though, this is extreme, even for the ACC. PIVOT!

Thanks to James from PackPride for the link.

ACC Tournament’s Mascot Night may or may not have stooped to new low

ACC Women's Basketball Tournament Mascot Night has a conspicuous absense

This promotion poster looks rather innocent at first, doesn’t it?  Let alone the enticing value presented by the 4-4-4 deal, how could one not be drawn in by the inescapable psychological comfort something called “Mascot Night” induces?  Well, that’s how they get you.

As you’ll see (after the jump), there’s something quite ominous about this year’s ACC Women’s Basketball Tournament…

QB throws 70 yards in the air, on the run, as a High School Sophomore…

December 17, 2009

Meet Nick Marshall.  He’s currently a Junior at Wilcox County High School, a small school tucked away in middle Georgia.  He’s the QB on the football team that just won the State Championship.  He possesses what Peyton Manning might describe as a “laser, rocket arm,” or something to that effect.  He also plays basketball, and currently claims an offer from Florida State.  Just recently he reportedly received his first offers as a 2011 QB from Georgia and Mississippi State.  He’s that guy, and I think a lot more people are about to take notice over the next year or so.

Nearly all the currently available video of this kid requires premium membership to either Scout or Rivals (both highly recommended), but, as you can see, I was lucky enough to come across the video posted below on some site called YouTube.  That clip is actually taken from a game during Marshall’s Sophomore season, which makes it all the more ridiculous.  I mean, that’s a 15 or 16 year-old kid launching a football 70 yards in the air, on the run, while eluding defenders.  Evolution?  More evidence of just how far sports science has come?  Who cares…

If a 30 second YouTube video simply eats too much into your plans, fast forward to the 14 second mark for the start of the insanity in question.

This kid has what Peyton Manning might term a "laser, rocket arm."
