Don't get me wrong: I love a good Pacman Jones story, but this isn't what I'm talking about.
Mike Barwis, strength and conditioning coach at West Virginia, said the Titans cornerback called Thursday and told him he might return to Morgantown to pursue his degree and work out at the school. "He said he's trying to iron a few things out,'' Barwis said. "I think he is trying to do the right thing. I think he is trying to get himself in an environment that is going to help him.''
What. The. Fuck. You think you know a guy…
Barwis, FYI, is the guy who kind of got Pacman to semi-behave while at WVU. He stepped in as a father figure and transformed Jones from a rabid wild animal to the lovable no-good hoodlum we know today. So, in theory, this could be a big step forward for Jones, returning to work out with role model he respects and take some… classes? For… his… degree?
Yeah, sorry. I'm just not that gullible. He's more likely to cut off his dreds and show up to press conferences in Dockers and a polo shirt than he is to take more than one class. And I say even odds that one class will be Nutrition.
