    FSU's Rolle Chooses Academics over Football

    FSU's Myron Rolle is choosing Rhode Scholar interview over game. - Stewart Mandel - SI.com

    There's a great story about Florida State's star safety Myron Rolle. He's interviewing for a Rhodes Scholarship on Saturday, Nov. 22. As a result, he'll miss at least half and possibly all of FSU's game against Maryland. Good for him.

    He was also the #1 prospect in the country as a high school player. The dude is just quality all around.

    I agree, that's very impressive. Hopefully ESPN decides to give them the late slot so he can come back for the second half.

    What is most impressive about this story to me is how supportive his coach and AD are of his decision. There will always be another football game.

    I'm more impressed that FSU has a football player that even knows what a Rhodes Scholar is, let alone is qualified to be one.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”
