The Weekend Journal section of today's Wall Street Journal has an article on page W4 on how YouTube highlight videos are making stars out of recruits before they ever play a down for their team. One such player mentioned, unsurprisingly, is the Tide's own Julio Jones.
Most all of us have seen #8's high school highlights where he manhandles opposing defenders like a schoolyard hero. But the article makes particular note of the (now banned) pre-season practice video where Julio, "scores by catching a long pass and stiff-arming all-conference safety Rashad Johnson." You know the one. The article goes on to note:
One commenter on the blog Roll Bama Roll wrote: "That play will eventually be part of Julio's Heisman montage."
So congratulations "pantsfucious," you're famous. So go buy a copy and tell mom and dad that your extensive knowledge of Crimson Tide football has resulted in you being quoted by the Wall Street Journal, albeit without specific credit. I, for one, would have loved to see the word "pantsfucious" in the WSJ.
