Wake Forest photoshops recruit Kengera Daniel next to Kim Kardashian

Wake-Forest-Kengera-Daniel-recruit

If three-star high school defensive end Kengera Daniel ever wondered what Kim Kardashian would look like on his arm, Wake Forest has provided him with a visual. In an attempt to be creative with their recruiting pitch, Wake Forest recently sent Daniel — the 15th-ranked player at his position — a photoshopped image that features the 250-pounder with his arm around Kim K.

Daniel tweeted the image with a laughing and clapping emoticon, so I guess he appreciated the effort. The fake People Magazine cover also included phony headlines like “Kim K. on why she wants to see KG in the Deacon black and gold.”

Sound familiar? While mildly entertaining, the idea isn’t original. Tennessee did the exact same thing with a recruit and a Beyonce photoshop last month. The fact that Wake Forest stole the idea is lamer than the idea itself.

Luke Caparelli Kicked Off Wake Forest Football for Facebook Comments

Who the hell would’ve thought such a headline would even be a possibility 10 years ago? What has this world come to when players get kicked off teams for things they write in personal internet profile pages? Let’s just say it wouldn’t be the first time facebook created a stir amongst collegiate athletes. Anyway, getting to it, Wake Forest running back Luke Caparelli was kicked off the team for comments he had on his Facebook page:

[Luke Caparelli] has been dismissed from the team after writing on his Facebook page that he would “blow up campus.”

Campus police said 19-year-old Luke Caparelli posted the note on the social-networking page on Jan. 13. The note was written in third person and included a threat that Caparelli would have an Uzi submachine gun “locked and loaded in his bag.”

The affidavit said Caparelli acknowledged writing the statements but said he wouldn’t do anything to harm anyone on campus or hurt the school.

I would make a comment about this kid ordinarily, but he’s 19 and made a dumb move. He’s already paid the price of his (stupid) action. I’m still just blown away about the weight these myspace and facebook pages carry these days. I mean kids can’t get away with anything. Then again, what the heck kind of moron writes that he’s going to blow up campus anyway?
