Another high-scorer on our favorites list just earned himself another stripe in our ranking of favorite college athletes. First, his name is Jimtavis Walker, which as we discussed previously, fits all of the requirements for having a truly sensational college football name.
Second, an incident with a cabbie in Corvallis-they have cabs in Corvallis?-shoots Jimtavis into our upper echelon of all we love and respect about the college game. Gifted? I'll let the evidence speak for itself:
"It was obvious they had been drinking, and they were quite unruly," the driver said, adding that Walker threw a hamburger at him after the players left the cab. The driver said that after Walker berated him, Walker "lit up a joint."
The driver said Paddock pushed him and slammed the door of the cab on his knee. He said he had a bruised right shoulder and a scar on his knee from the incident. He said the players also took his clipboard, which contained approximately $52 in charge slips from previous fares, plus his itinerary and other information.
At least he had the sense to take a cab. Beavers, drinking, heavy machinery...danger, people, danger.
