In a shocking twist, it now appears they wrote a bad check to the hotel that they stayed at in Canton.  After cleaning fees for 3 rooms and 25 rooms total, it was about $4,600.

Lol, this is the story that keeps on giving!!

I love the name - Bishop Sycamore. Was that someone’s favorite tree?  There is also a school crest. It looks like more time was spent resigning that then the football program and academic curriculum combined.

One big positive: This story caused me to remember reading about another great football hoax from 25+ years ago. When a former low-level college guy named Ron Weaver supposedly made a deal with a friend/acquaintance to use his name and SS number to enroll at a JUCO to start his career over and somehow improved enough during that time that he moved onto Texas University's team when he was 30 years old. Until his story came crashing down right before the 1995 Sugar Bowl.

Much like ESPN and the group who makes those HS match-ups for their programming, neither the JUCO nor Texas put any work into vetting the guy's identity, so despite not really doing much in the way of planning, he basically had two different college football careers, totaling seven years of playing.

That’s what I was thinking, too, about the name. 

“Today’s homily will be given by Bishop Sycamore”…….😎

Add the coach had the team beat up homeless and got his plays from Madden. 🤦‍♂️
