Honestly, I'm happy he decided to do this. Even if he was considering doing something like this and came to MSU instead, he isn't fully invested in MSU. Better to have something like this happen now than when he's actually at MSU.
Thank God this happened when it did. Would have been embarrassing for him to end up her and screw up.
Michigan State strips local star's scholarship after explicit rap video http://po.st/DKFlfM via @phillydotcom
So we stripped his scholarship? What? I'm so confused.

In other words, this wasn't Harris "deciding" to pursue rap. This was him being told you aren't coming to MSU.
I actually think he's a pretty talented rapper. If you think about it, he's probably got a better chance at rapping then he does to make the NFL.
Not sure if serious.
Probably a shtick account, considering the amount of posts.
I know its not the same situation at all but there is another musician who had originally gotten an 800 on the math portion of the SAT, enrolled at Cornell in engineering to be a rocket scientist and then dropped out when he was going to be a junior to pursue a music career. In between HS and college he had hitchhiked across the US and learned to play harmonica then bummed around Europe playing for money for a ticket back to the US. Who was this musician? He was born Hugh Anthony Cregg III. Now better known as Huey Lewis.
We are the SPARTANS and They are NOT!!! [spartan 2]
Considering the content of the video and his tweets, and knowing MD and the perception that some like to have of MSU (rightly and wrongly), it is difficult to make a legit case for anything else.
He was workin for a livin'.

I honestly expected him to be pretty good at rapping That video is hilarious.
Anyways, prevailing internet scuttlebutt is starting to say that his scholly was stripped because of the video. Who knows? It's way funnier if this was his choice.
But yeah, deeefinitely dodged a bullet.
You like Huey Lewis and the News? Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album had a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humour. In '87, Huey released this, Fore!, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "Hip to be Square", a song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it's also a personal statement about the band itself.
I WANT to say we've found OUR Petway....however, the fact he never enrolled and didn't put on a uni won't allow me to do that: thank god
Can't do both. Have to pick one.
I 'd at this part:
"We listened to his first single, 'DatBull 4 Life,' wherein he raps about having sex and smoking weed and being awesome. These are all tried-and-true things to do and write music about, so good start, Harris."
From the deadspin article...
"Rapping about having sex, smoking weed and being awesome".....
Guess what Jay, you can have tons of sex as a D1 football star and also, you're pretty flipping awesome when you're walking on campus!!!!!! You know what will detract from sex life and being awesome? Being a deadbeat broke ass rapper with no education. Un-flipping-believable.
hey man, it will be speculated to DEATH the next few years but I'm relieved as hell this happened. Better to be a LITTLE red faced now instead of thoroughly humiliated later.
You're right, if he made this decision, that tells me all I need to know about how he would have contributed to the team. It's just a shame that he was recruited and decided on MSU because all we'll hear is comments on "character of recruits", oh well. Poised for a good fall never the less!!!
You're a quick one!

I'm a Twitter junkie. Lol.
Desmond Howard @DesmondHoward 18m
What's funnier? Michigan State offering this kid or this kid turning down their offer? http://is.gd/QjaomD via @TheBigLead
Howard is such a moron. Why ESPN lets him stay around is beyond me. Does he not realize MSU was the one who made the decision? Fucking moron.
Not even close to as funny as that punter they have...
