    Why does Hobbs say his high school?

    I know this has been asked and answered several times before, but I couldn't remember. Why does Ellis Hobbs say his high school in his introductions on NFL games, again?

    Sorry for asking again!

    Because Iowa State fired Dan McCarney who was Hobbs coach...Ya gotta give old hobbs credit for loyalty to Danny Mac...

    Re: Why does Hobbs say his high school?

    O. M. G. Can this die? Really?

    Is there a rule that he has to say his college? Does that mean he doesn't like Iowa State? I think that would be kind of contrary to him coming to games on some New England bye weeks and wearing ISU swag in interviews.

    I don't know, I don't care, I don't take it personally.

    Re: Why does Hobbs say his high school?

    Seriously? I was under the impression that it was a different reason. Hmm... I guess I was wrong.

    I was thinking it had something to do with being the first player from his high school to make it to the NFL.

    At least Dobbins said Iowa State.

    Sorry--I don't mean to be redundant, I was just asked by a friend, and I know I've read it on here before, I just couldn't remember and was too lazy to go look it up. Sorry.

    I don't think anybody but Ellis really knows. Your reason is as legit as any other. Either way, I could give a crap what he says, it still shows ISU as his school every time he makes a play. Whether it's a great play or when he gets toasted, which seems to be about a 50/50 proposition.

    Tim Dobbins just said Iowa State during the announcements, though... FWIW. I wonder if his HS sports team message board is going off on him right now?

    I'm sorry if I came across as harsh, and it certainly isn't directly to you personally. It's just that this has come up nearly every week since he broke into the NFL, and I don't understand how it continues to be a big deal. I apologize.

    Re: Why does Hobbs say his high school?

    Who cares... If I was born and raised in the same town all my life, went to college somewhere 1000 miles away and made it big in the NFL I may give love to my high school, too. People take it WAY too personally. He played his *** of for ISU while he was here. That's enough for me.
