"I am God"

So says Wyatt Sexton, the FSU player expected to start at quarterback for the Seminoles this season. Sexton was arrested by Tallahassee police who found him lying in the middle of the street. When asked by the police what his name was Sexton responded "I am God." He then got down on his hands and knees and proceeded to yell obscentities at the police. Now I'm not a real church-going type of guy but I'm pretty sure God would not have done that.

In response, the police pepper-sprayed Sexton and brought him to the hospital. At the hospital Sexton said he was God and the son of God. Sexton must not be a Catholic since he did not say he's also the Holy Ghost. Sexton has earlier attended a Dave Matthews concert.

I'll go out on a limb here and say that somebody gave this guy to much acid, or some other drug. This entire story reminds me of the scene in "Almost Famous" where Russell Hammond eats too much acid and declares he's a Golden God before jumping off the roof.

Anyway, Bobby Bowden can't be too happy to read this story in the newspaper, unless Bowden sees this as Sexton simply expressing his religious beliefs. In which case Bowden should have no problem with what went down.

I would like to see Bowden step up and get rid of this guy, but I'm not so sure that will happen. Instead Sexton will get hit with a one or two game suspension, and will come back half way through the season when FSU is struggling and nobody outside of Florida is paying attention to Tallahassee. Unfortunately, FSU's 1st game of the season is against Miami.
