Mike Vick tribute causing trouble for Terrelle Pryor

We made a brief reference on Sunday to the fact that Mike Vick made an appearance during Saturday’s Navy-Ohio State game, via the black eye strips worn by Buckeyes quarterback Terrell Pryor.

Specifically, Pryor had “Mike” under one eye and “Vick” under the other.

But the folks in Columbus have made more than brief reference to Pryor’s tribute to Vick.  As John Taylor of CFT explains it, fans of and media covering The Ohio State University are getting more than a little hot under The collar regarding Pryor’s gratuitous decision to show support to a man with whom Pryor has no family, team, or other connection.

Read more right here from the man who at times wishes he had no family, team, or other connection to PFT.

Meanwhile, Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez, who unsuccessfully recruited Pryor, might want to restrain his laughter over the potential implosion in Columbus.  Otherwise, his hair plugs might come out.  Again.

    Who gives a shit? Is this college football talk ? Save it for your little sister site. Some people hate college ball.

    Give it a break Florio. Giants find a credible reciever yet? Or another TE for that matter.

  5. Facts Domino says: Sep 8, 2009 8:42 PM

    So a mediocre at best college quarterback shows support for a mediocre at best felon.
    Sad world.

    This is why most fans hate members of the media, and why athletes don’t trust them. You guys go around whining that athletes don’t stand for anything and always speak in cliches, then if someone has a strong opinion about something and you happen to disagree with it, you rip them for that too. If you don’t agree with Pryor, you don’t agree, but why act like he did something wrong. You asked him a question, and he gave you an answer.

    “Everyone makes mistakes, people kill people” Wow,,,Pryor you might be worse than ConVick

    “Everyone does — kills people, murders people, steals from you, steals from me.”
    Yeah, you know, all us murderin’ stealin’ fools.
    Seriously? Aren’t these motarded kids supposed to be in “college.” What a disgraceful sham.

  9. Winston Wolfe says: Sep 8, 2009 8:55 PM

    Looks like Pryor wants to give Vince Young a run for his money for the lowest score on the wonderlic test.
    Florio you’re acting more and more like a woman scorned with each dig you take at Coach R.

    I just met Pryor at a dog fight last week, he’s a pretty nice guy….

  11. Outsyder says: Sep 8, 2009 9:09 PM

    Facts lol
    He was the #1 rated QB coming out of high school 2 years ago.

  12. Maximus15 says: Sep 8, 2009 9:11 PM

    How retarded do you have to be to say that his is not a story? It indirectly involves an NFL player, so right there is it related. Pryor is an anticipated NFL draft pick, so again, it is related. And third, and most importantly, the jackass says that everyone kills people and robs from each other. You people seriously don’t think that is a story???

  13. Facts Domino says: Sep 8, 2009 9:24 PM

    Ryan Leaf was the #2 rated QB coming out of high school 12 years ago.
    Do you have a point?

    I don’t know anything about the kid, but maybe where he grew up, that’s not too far from the truth. If he grew up in a nice suburb, then yeah, he’s an ass.

  15. Bubba Maximus says: Sep 8, 2009 9:40 PM

    Hey, man, yo, why y’all gotta be hatin’ on TP?
    He just be keepin’ it real.
    Y’all know what I’m sayin’?

  16. Florio-is-a-tool says: Sep 8, 2009 9:40 PM

    Ghetto doesn’t work with people who have jobs, work and pay to go to football games.

  17. DeluxeReverb says: Sep 8, 2009 9:41 PM

    college kids are so stupid.

  18. Big Stretch says: Sep 8, 2009 10:03 PM

    Wow….. obviously college entrance exams are not a reality.

  19. lololnpnp says: Sep 8, 2009 10:11 PM

    Rich Rod + UM >>>>>>>> Rich Rod + WVU.
    Seriously, let it go it’s pathetic how angry all the toothless hillbillies in WV are with Rich. He went to THE WINNINGEST COLLEGE FOOTBALL PROGRAM EVER and plays in some of the best football facilities in the world. I understand there isn’t much to keep one’s attention in a coal mining state, but it’s been over a year…move on.
    As an aside can this site live up to it’s billing and focus on the NFL. TP sucks and as a college QB and Vick hasn’t played an NFL game in some time. Make it relevant.

    The only implosions are happening everywhere but Columbus apparently. I live here and nobody is saying much about it. The only places still talking about it are the national media outlets.

  21. IStateYourName says: Sep 8, 2009 10:38 PM

    Wow. Read the commenters on in reaction to the column. 98% in favor of murdering dogs for fun. Wow. USC rolls this weekend.

  22. FireDickNow says: Sep 9, 2009 1:41 AM

    yeaa vick

  23. Vet735 says: Sep 9, 2009 2:09 AM

    Florio’s new pals would be happier if Pryor had supported cop killers like Mumia Abu Jamal. NBC News has been trying to get that guy out of jail for years. But alas, where is the concern for dead cops when you can worry about a bunch of dogs.

    What if he wrote :
    Would this even be an issue?

  25. BuckeyeTurf06 says: Sep 9, 2009 6:37 AM

    Way to go, Terrelle. You’ve gone and made the rest of the Buckeye Nation look like morons. Or atleast the athletes. ☻☼CBS, FOX, ESPN, NFLN nbc , my reply to your question is “Yes”, so long as he justifies it with a stupid, ignorant answer as he did this time around. Terrelle, might I recommend you go to campus and visit one of the buildings with all the books in it, for an extended period of time. I think they call it a “library”. Maybe you won’t come off as such a moron next time you do an interview.

  26. LL Live says: Sep 9, 2009 9:09 AM

    LOL working in the Rich Rod jab…someone is a bitter little man.

  27. tv says: Sep 9, 2009 9:25 AM

    Ghetto thugs stick together. They learn that in prison – and da street prepares them for it.
    Vick has been to prison. It is just a matter of time before TP (oh, how appropriate) does too.
    Ghetto thugs are ghetto thugs for life man! Maybe at some point the guy will learn to have a modicum of class – but I doubt it.

  28. slipkid says: Sep 9, 2009 10:02 AM

    he should read the crime blotter. then he would see who’s doing all the killin.

    @ lololnpnp
    I find it very funny when Michigan fans make fun of West Virginians. Do you realize when you refer to West Virginians as ‘toothless hillbillies’, that includes Rich Rodriguez’s family, since many of them still live here?
    Also, there are plenty of WVU fans that have let it go, including me. I have to wonder though, will Michigan fans feel the same way about Rich, after he rebuilds the program and then bolts to the NFL? He’s stated before that coaching in the NFL is his ultimate goal, so I wouldn’t get to comfortable with him there, even if he is signed to a long term contract. He’s proven before that contracts mean nothing to him.
    I still root for him though. In fact, I root for all the head coaches from West Virginia. Let me see if I can remember them all; Rich Rod at Michigan, Nick Saban at Alabama, Jim Grobe at Wake Forest, Mark Snyder at Marshall, and of course Bill Stewart at WVU. Am I missing anyone? That’s pretty impressive if you ask me. Four head coaches at BCS schools, from a state of 2.5 million ‘toothless hillbillies’.

  30. Run Jay Run says: Sep 9, 2009 10:49 AM

    Oh, and when Jimbo Fisher takes over for Bobby Bowden at Florida State, that will make five head coaches from the state of West Virginia at BCS schools.
