Jacob Pullen: ‘I Kind of Feel Like Michael Vick in Some Ways’

Props to Diamond Leung for putting this post together, if only for the great quotes he salvaged from this radio interview: “Kansas State star guard Jacob Pullen today finished serving his three-game NCAA suspension for receiving impermissible benefits at a local department store and is expected to be back in action for Monday’s game against Savannah State. … Pullen apologized to his team and Kansas State fans after today’s game in comments to reporters, according to audio from 1350 KMAN.  ’I kind of feel like Michael Vick in some ways. I feel like I’ve got something to prove again. I feel like people doubt what I’ve done and feel like that I shouldn’t be in a place that I’ve been in. I feel like now is a reason for me to show them I worked hard for everything that’s come my way and everything that this team has gotten. It really makes you hungry again, and I feel like God did it for a reason.’”

    2 years away from the game, endorsement money, NFL Salary and FREEDOM trumps that little BS Pullen is talking about.

  • tavoris

    He might as well bone a cheerleader in the locker room, get caught, and say he feels like Tiger Woods. Then announce his intention to withdraw from school to work at Costco, and say he feels like Lebron.

    He messed up. He knows it’s all his fault. he’s owning up to it. And people are going to bring this up and hate on him for sure. Now he has to focus back on basketball. I can see the slight comparison to Vick. And it did happen for a reason. For him to change his ways

    @ vtrobot – Exactly! Now don’t get me wrong it really is a silly and minor misdemeanor but whay the hell do these youngsters nowadays invoke the God excuse for everything? get free clothes, “I feel like God did this for sumthin”, sell drugs and get caught, “I feel like God did this for sumthin” go out and and shoot someone because you saw it in a video game, “I feel like God did this for sumthin”. Seriously smh.

    So… Pullen feels like people doubt and GOD did it for a reason? Maybe he should’ve been humble and hungry without taking benefits in the first place?

    Regardless, I wish him luck and look forward to him picking up where he left off.

    About Wally Judge. Enormous talent with great potential. I just think he needs to play more physical… Especially in the Big 12

    What y’all know about God?

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    @Allenp exactly.

    ‘i know god, the real god’. Cassius clay, a day before the first liston fight. I wonder how many people picked up on that and what it really meant for him and his future.

    If I was God, this would be a good no-call. I’d swallow the whistle — play on. Quit acting like everything you do wrong, was done for some reason that I had a part in.

  • tavoris

    Allenp-don’t know about the others, but Pullen left himself waay to open for jokes with that comment.
