Barber to Follow Butler

What are we, a P.G. Wodehouse novel? We’re not getting ready to sign someone named Valet, are we? I’m not sure about all this gentleman’s personal gentleman business.

Obtuse literary reference aside, Dawgs have offered a scholarship to and received the commitment of 2012 punter Colin Barber, out of Cartersville High, who is projected to replace Drew Butler next season. This commitment is hot on the heels of our other recent commitment, from fullback Quayvon Hicks, out of Pierce County High.

And speaking of recruits, I actually meant to make this part of the post yesterday but couldn’t due to my Internet acting up. But, anyway, did you guys see that article by Marc Weiszer regarding John Jenkins? Lawd have mercy:

Upon seeing that photo, I was immediately reminded of an exchange of dialogue between Miracle Max (Billy Crystal) and Fezzik (Andre the Giant) from the wonderful film The Princess Bride:

Miracle Max (answering door): Beat it or I’ll call the Brute Squad!
Fezzik: I’m on the Brute Squad.
Miracle Max (looking Fezzik up and down): You are the Brute Squad!

While it may look like an iPhone in Mr. Jenkins’ left hand, I assure you that it is indeed a Cray-2 Supercomputer. He really is just that big.
