Eh, the team'll suck as usual ... why not let the coach make a little green for himself on the side? It's not like a GOOD quarterback would have made much difference anyway, so what's the difference?

Maybe you could post some real news....
If that's the way you feel, why did you click on the story in the first place?

He sucked at every school he has attended so he goes to a nothing school with all the rest of the loosers. Tiger High ! They won't beat anyone ! He will still suck unless daddy pays off the other schools so they will loose.

I'd hate to think where this city would be right now were it not for Fred Smith.

Do you think we could let the young man throw his first pass on the field before everyone starts in on him.

I hope he does well, lots of pressure on the young man. I think Wil Gilchrist is a better talent but
his father is not Fred Smith. Gilchrist kid can run and throw and has a better chance to move out of the pocket than the top two QB's....We will see what happens!!!!

Whatever happened to his court case after he was arrested in Collierville with $2000 worth of Ecstasy on him? Sounds like he'd be a better fit for the Tiger basketball team.
Of course he got off with a slap on the hand. Daddy is famous name and money does buy you free get out of jail cards. He never got anything but a slap on the hand.
If that was anyone else they would lose their car and pay a fine and jail time. He didn't get any of that. Kept his car and this wasn't put on his record also. Surprise about that. How long will it be before he meets the law here again.

If young Mr. Smith wants to be the man, then let him do it. He knows there is a lot of pressure on him and his family name. My first impression was "Oh yeah, his Dad paid for this!" In reality, If you could do it for your kid, why not? I do not care if Fred had anything to do with it, or if Memphis gets some kind of financial boost due to this, but the story will unfold very soon if cannon can play ball or not. Good luck to him and to the team.

Mississippi State is going to KILL him. Another loss for Tiger High. Spend that money at the fair grounds so you can see them suck on the way in. Just trying to be like the Big Schools.Ole Miss, Tennessee, etc.
