Moore not so fondly recalls Vandy days
With the Northwestern vs. Vanderbilt game looming Saturday night in Evanston, there has been some locker room banter between the three Wildcats — Corey Wootton, Nick Roach and Sherrick McManis — and the four Commodores — Jay Cutler, Earl Bennett D.J. Moore and Chris Williams — who are now all teammates on the Bears.
That prompted the question: "Who's smarter, Vandy guys or Northwestern guys?"
Speaking for Delta House, make that Vanderbilt: D.J. Moore.
"I didn't go to school to learn too much, to be honest," said Moore, who opted for the NFL draft with a year of eligibility remaining. "I should've spent a little more time (in class) while I was in school.
"I'm not the smartest guy, but I probably have the most common sense. I learned fast, but I could've done better. Once I got to school and got good (at football), I was like, 'Man, this is for the birds. It's time to leave.'"
Moore admits he's not a scholar, but he says he's more of an academic than some of the players he faced in high school.
"I'm smarter than some of the kids that went to Florida State or those types of schools," he said. "Some kids get into school with a point nothing (grade-point average). They didn't even go to high school."
