Re: Blake Barnett Transferring

I hope he transfers somewhere that will allows us to play against him, maybe in the playoffs. I want our defense to break him in half.

This isn't just about him quitting on the team during the season. He and his dad effectively held our team hostage during the offseason so Blake could continue to get more reps.

Ultimately that did nothing but hinder our QB development and I hope we get a chance at payback on the field. /rant

Re: Blake Barnett Transferring

Idle question--was the Barnett ultimatum delivered before or after the Mo Smith kerfuffle? If afterwards, someone just isn't that bright. If before, it might explain why CNS went postal after Mo's mom called.

Re: Blake Barnett Transferring

He's going to take up skeet surfing with his fiancee?

OK, now that this thread has died down, and I do not have to worry about derailing it, with yet another of my obscure digressions...............

I have actually seen this movie. Yes, it is a dreadful as it looks.

"And you still watched it, didn't you?"

Hey.............3 AM...........insomnia............they have to put something (other than infomercials) on all those cheesy UHF stations........................

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088286/

The trailer is available, on YouTube, but might not be appropriate forum material.

Joe Bob says "Check it out." Skeet shootin' on a surf board, surfing bimbos, Russian spies, cheesy Cold War spy intrigue, mad scientists, gnarly-looking teen idol, etc. Dude!

Yes I have and I think it's hilarious. I love Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker films.

Re: Blake Barnett Transferring

So, now that Barnett is gone, did he find his dream JC to transfer to. I thought he had to do that pretty quickly to use the loophole. Did he end up at Blinn like Scam? Krymsonman

I suspect he was limited in his choices given his plan to "graduate " from JUCO in December and enroll again at D1 in the spring.

Re: Blake Barnett Transferring

After some consultation with those a little deeper on the issue. Good riddance.

Re: Blake Barnett Transferring

I sincerely hope that Blake is successful but I really think he's going to seriously regret at some point the way he handled his exit from Alabama.

A quick Google search turns up nothing. He might not be actually playing football for a JUCO. He might just be attending one like former Baylor QB Jarrett Stidham.

Re: Blake Barnett Transferring

Don't know who does it, Don't know when, but one of these days Blake will be jolted into reality, and realize just how big a mistake he made leaving Alabama.
The best Blake can hope for now is to be a 'Big Fish' in a small pond.
Like leaving Broadway to star in a local little theatre group in Auburn.

The only "problem" with the film................

To truly ascend the ladder of badness, to be really great badness, to where it is a true art form, would be for it to actually be made in the 60s.

But, some of it would have been considered a bit to risque, for back then.

"Totally tubular, dude. Hey.........dude.......where did Blake wander off to? He is missing some awesome waves, man."

Cue Vincent Price showing up for the beach party scene.......................
