Skip Talks About How Good He Was At High School BasketballVideo: YouTubeJalen Rose later revealed that Skip averaged 1.4 points on his high school team senior year, despite having exaggerated his basketball career in the past, claiming to have been a pretty significant prospect in his younger days.
Tall for age in 9th grade, chosen MVP of state-wide basketball camp over several future D1 players. Decided I was Maravich. Coach disagreed.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) March 31, 20125524Is this awful?
Skip Bayless Says He'd Take Josh Freeman Over Cam NewtonIn November of 2012, Skip said Freeman was more appealing than Newton longterm. As of right now, Newton is the reigning NFL MVP, and Josh Freeman isn't currently signed to a roster.
Long term give me Josh Freeman over Cam. Better leader, more consistent passer, more clutch, more poised under fire, more careful with ball.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) November 16, 20125120Is this awful?
Skip Bayless Didn't Believe In Von MillerIn 2011, Skip believed the Denver Broncos success was mostly a result of Tim Tebow, and he also labeled future Super Bowl MVP, Von Miller "overrated."
I'm sorry, but Von Miller is OVERRATED. I didn't love him at A&M - disappeared in too many big games. And HE'S Denver's real MVP? Huh?— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) December 24, 20117546Is this awful?
Skip Bayless On Quarterbacks In The 2012 NFL DraftIn 2014, Skip said he'd still draft RG3, Luck, then Wilson. The person he'd take last, Wilson, is the only one of those players who has gone to and won a Super Bowl, and Luck has had more success than RG3 thus far, so he really got this one perfectly wrong.
Today if drafting 2012 over, I'd still go RG3, Luck, then Russell Wilson (who went 75th). Still believe RG3 can return to rookie of yr RG3.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) October 7, 20144416Is this awful?
