I got fired up this morning reading this story about Yuri Wright's Tweets. It has nothing to do with his tweets. The tweets are immature however I trust the coaching staff to make the right call on Yuri Wright. They know him better than anyone could from twitter and if Schiano says he is a Rutgers kid then he is. His twitter is basically what goes on in my head everyday, the internet isn't meant to be politically correct or censored, it's real life. That being said, he needs to realize his twitter feed will be more scrutinized in the media than mine will ever be and this should be a learning experience. What got me fired up is what was said at the bottom of the page "stay classy jersey".
I have travelled all over the country and no matter where I go there is a common theme, when I tell people that I am from Jersey they feel compelled to make a joke. What gets me fired up is when people actually think they are better than me because I grew up in Jersey. They have no idea what we have here. If these kids go to schools out of state they will always be the Jersey kid and have jokes thrown their way. All my friends that went to out of state colleges are now back here because there is nowhere better. Here's to hoping these top Jersey recruits stay home and force everyone to know that what this state has is special. They won't be able to make jokes for much longer with what Schiano is building.
