Sounds like he's a city man. Looking forward to watching Seattle U this year.

I think Sacre has it written into his contract that the Zags can't recruit anyone with more tats than him. ;)

I'm not sure what would cause UW to back off him academically and Seattle U to not have a problem, but that same issue might have stopped GU from looking too hard at him.

I also noticed a part of the article a couple guys on our roster might have an issue with:


Dollar says Garcia's package of size and skills makes him potentially the best NBA prospect on any college team in the state.

Learned two things:

(1) We beat up on Romar a lot around here (with some justification), but it's nice to see Romar's compassionate side relative to Garcia not making it academically at UWKFC (all right; Kiddwell's weak; couldn't resist the swipe at UW's panty-waist OOC). Still, praiseworthy compassion on Coach Romar's part!

(2) So you CAN grayshirt a basketball player! (Kiddwell thought so!)

:]

I saw the article this morning. The first thing I questioned was whether the kid would have been better off in a more established program.

If I were Cameron Dollar I would make Garcia wear a specially-designed turtle neck sweater (with his number on back, of course), so that I would not have to look at his revolting tattoos. Sorry, but I'm from a generation that associates tattoos with drunk sailors, Hells Angels, skin heads, meth freaks and common criminals. My wife tells me that tattoos became legitimized when former Secretary of State Schultz, a stodgy looking guy. acknowledged that he had tattoos on his rear end. But only his proctologist knew.

Tell that to the king.

If Garcia gets drafted eventually, he should go to the Denver Nuggets. An announcer (I'd credit him if I could remember) said last year "Even after Allen Iverson left the Nuggets, they still lead the league in tattoos!" :D

My favorite:

Judging by the picture on the Times, he doesn't appear to have any neck tattoos. I could care less how much ink he puts on his arms, chest, back, and butt. Neck tattoos, however, are a major red flag. SEE: DeShawn Stevenson, K-Mart, Starbury, Boy George, and Chris Brown. I mean seriously, even Robert Swift kept the neck bare.

Deshawn Stevenson wishes he had shorted the dollar.
