Attention all of you who took “six weeks” in the how-long-will-Rocky-be-able-to-put-up-with-Dillon-Baxter’s-bullshit pool: You may now claim your prize.
I didn’t write a whole lot on Baxter’s signing, so I’m not going to dwell too much on his flameout. But I will say this: Despite the debacle this became, bringing in Baxter was still a worthwhile risk.
Five-star recruits don’t make it down to Montezuma Mesa that often (read: ever), so when USC vomits one up, you might as well swoop. That said, it was nice to see Rocky Long end the experiment quickly once it became obvious that dude wasn’t going to get his crap together.
The only question left: Did our emotionless head coach actually crack a smile after telling Baxter to pack up his shit and get lost? Something tells me that he did.
