Over the weekend, former Florida linebacker Channing Crowder suggested on his new radio show that “hypothetically” he might have sold his UF jerseys to some folks in Jacksonville who liked the way he played. As you know, selling collectibles and merchandise is a no-no for college athletes.
Yesterday, Crowder backed off of his hypothetical suggestion while on ESPN’s “SportsCenter”:
“I have all four of them (UF jerseys). My momma has two of my jerseys on her wall in her house, and I have the other two in my house.
I was playing off the whole Terrelle Pryor thing when businessmen were buying his stuff. I was saying that, if somebody wanted to buy my jerseys while I was in school, why can’t I sell them because they’re my jerseys and have my name on the back? When I was at Florida, I made ’55′ a relevant jersey number at Florida, so why couldn’t I sell my jersey when I was there with my name on the back? That was the point.”
And that is the sound of a man trying to remove his foot from his mouth.
