Not saying I don't slack off and yes I bet he has worked harder, physically that is. I wouldn't be stupid enough to say the kind of shit he did during a job interview.

In his Combine media interview, LSU DE Sam Montgomery admitted to betting in college and taking games -- not plays -- games off when the Tigers faced lesser opponents.

Montgomery's agent should have advised him before the Combine that saying things like this is not smart. At all. "Some weeks when we didn’t have to play the harder teams, there were some times when effort was not needed," Montgomery said. "But when we had the big boys coming in, the ‘Bamas or the South Carolinas, I grabbed close to those guys and went all out." Montgomery detailed "hundreds of dollars" in bets with teammate Barkevious Mingo, including one for $5,000 on which LSU defensive end will be drafted higher. We'd wager -- heavily -- that it won't be Montgomery. Draft insider Tony Pauline reported late Saturday that LSU's coaching staff has been "slamming" Montgomery to NFL teams.
Its pretty obvious what kind of education this guy got at LSU. What an idiot, not just for doing it but for admitting it. Sometimes the truth isnt the best thing to say

Should have been a Gamecock. I like that LSU is stabbing him in the back. Great recruiting nugget of info.

Maybe don't be so judgemental of a kid who probably puts more effort into his "work" than you've ever had to dream of.
Kinda difficult to reasonably compare your personal school work with a team game. Without knowing what he does for a living it's difficult to make a comparison there either.

And you know, plenty of college "kids" are dealing with things way more difficult than the prospect of going to school, having housing paid for, and having food paid for, in exchange for playing a GAME that they love.S hould also consider that football players probably have it easier academically than anyone else in the student body. I don't think every school is on the level of UNC, but most are probably closer than any of us would be happy to discover. There's a reason honor roll students bomb the Wonderlic.

Good points. I would also wager that studying global supply chain as I did is a bit more difficult than any kind of BS program Montgomery "studied".

Perhaps, but no one will discuss what you say in a job interview on a message board.

He said something stupid that 99% of college athletes do. If you watched our games against any instate (barring Clemson) opponent this past decade and could see past the blinding hate you would have seen almost the entire team going at 60% effort.

A football player said something stupid...he should get the Culliver award.

lol no crap? I just used common examples to illustrate that NOBODY operates at 100% all the time. That's why guys like Marcus Lattimore are so exceptional, and to hold every football player to that standard when you don't hold yourself to that standard is ridiculous.

I'm not saying Sam had the toughest life out there. I'm not saying he wasn't an idiot for what he said at the combine. I'm not saying any of the crap you guys are trying to put in my mouth.

My argument (and this is very simple) is in response to the "I hate any player that doesn't give 100% every single play" statement. Because nobody gives 100% on every play, whether it be in football or in school or at work.

And lmao - congrats to the exemplary paragon talking crap because he chose "global supply chain" as his major. No need to turn the thread into a "how hard do football players have it" thread, but cool story. We are all impressed.
