Quay Evans forced to wear Shock Collar (as read by Tom Rinaldi)

Quay and Rinaldi

(to be read in a Tom Rinaldi voice)

The Mississippi State coaches ask that you please don't stare.

18 year old Mississippi State DT Quay Evans takes the field for practice on this day with a mixture of ferociousness, passion, and shame.

Evans, who joined the MSU football team this spring, bares his shame in the form of a giant shock collar hanging around his tree trunk neck as he heads off to practice each day.

To ease the burden, MSU football media director Joe Galbraith tells fans that this large roll around Quay's neck is a "neck protector", but in reality, it is a stark reminder of what Quay is capable of.

The collar, retrofitted from an elephant shock collar specially for Quay by the MSU's Vet School, is required since Evans accidentally mauled to death a 5th string Quarterback in one of the early spring practices in Starkville.

"We were practicing, and we told Quay repeatedly that the red on the QB's jersey meant stop, but in the end he saw red like a bull...", head coach Dan Mullen told us. "All I can say is, we'll miss young Watt Myatt quite a bit."

So there he goes, day after day, trotting off to practice with enough electricity around his neck to power a small country, simply so his coaches can control him.

"We're glad to have him, there's no doubt," Defensive Coordinator Chris Wilson tells us. "But we have to shock him when he gets in the offensive backfield in practice."

"Why?," I asked coach Wilson as we stood on a dewy sweet morning grass at the MSU football practice fields.

His response?

"So we can field a team this fall, Tom"

/reader is on floor crying

We leave young Quay with the hope that he can learn to control his rage and mauling ability, while resting in the comfort that the collar is around his neck, hopefully 24 hours a day. In this harrowing time of spring practice and training, it is this young defensive tackle who is being trained... (dramatic pause)... with electricity.

For all of those surviving day in and day out here in the land of Quay, Tom Rinaldi... ESPN.
