The article was about Curtis Drake, who is hoping to return by August. But the story must not have had enough swagger, because the writer managed to work in one hell of a Matt McGloin quote:
Matt McGloin, one of the two candidates for the open starting quarterback job, was there. The other, Rob Bolden, wasn’t immediately seen at the event, at least for the first two-plus hours.
McGloin took over for Bolden as the starter in November, but ended the season with a five-interception outing against Florida in a 37-24 loss at the Outback Bowl. The junior known as the “West Scranton Gunslinger” hasn’t lost his swagger, though he says it’s still a wide-open race with Bolden going into August.
“In my mind, I am the guy to beat right now, that’s just the way I go about things,” McGloin said. “Obviously, there is an open competition. But I’m going to go in there and if I perform well, it’s going to be my job in the fall.”
Two things. One, NO ONE outside West Scranton, or the main stream media, knows McGloin as the “West Scranton Gunslinger.” Two, Mac’s quote was anything but saying he thinks it’s a wide-open race heading into the fall.
I really have nothing else to say about this. It’s just that ridiculous.
