RUSH: Here’s Aaron in Bradenton, Florida. Hi, Aaron. It’s great to have you up first today on the EIB Network. Welcome.
CALLER: Hey, Rush! I appreciate you taking my call.
RUSH: You bet, sir.
CALLER: Long-term listener. I heard you talk about Jameis a little bit ago and you said that he’s probably gonna get a standing ovation. I hope not. I’d be surprised. I’m an alumni, alumnus, as well as my wife and my family, and we’re all heading to the game this weekend. We’re pretty embarrassed. In fact, we’re upset about it. You know, we’re to the point now where we just kind of want the guy to go away.
CALLER: I spoke with a bunch of fraternity brothers as well, and we all kind of agree, you know, he’s a risk anymore.
RUSH: Do you think he’s gonna go away? Do you think they’re gonna get rid of him? Do you think they’ll bench him? Do you think they’ll suspend him?
CALLER: Nah, he’ll probably stay around.
RUSH: It’s the student body. Whatever percentage of the attends at an FSU game is student body, that’s who’s gonna give ’em a standing O. The kids.
CALLER: Probably. I wouldn’t be surprised at that at all.
RUSH: Yeah, that’s what it’s about.
CALLER: But as far as —
RUSH: I don’t think the adults will. Some of them may not have even heard what happened yet.
CALLER: I hope they have. (chuckles)
RUSH: But the kids, the students? Oh, man, they’re gonna dig it! They’re gonna think that it’s a rallying thing here. “Hey, our QB got up on a table in the student union and started talking about…” and they’re just gonna think it’s something to celebrate. They’ll give ’em a standing O, and especially because he was suspended for the first half! They’ll welcome him back. They’ll get the band off the field.
The band may even form the shape of male genitalia to welcome him back for the second half.
