Boeheim Must Have Had Some Hand In This

We don't mean to imply that the Syracuse football team might not be so good this year, but they have a wide receiver who is five-foot-four. We think our family dog is taller than that.

But we come here not to bury walk-on junior Max Meisel, but to praise him. As it turns out, Meisel — who was famously carried off the field in the spring game, and not on a stretcher either — won a contest two years ago on The Howard Stern Show to bring an adult film star to his prom. Unfortunately for him, the principal at his Connecticut high school put the kibosh on the plan.

Weston High Principal Mary Kolek says a date with a porn star violates the school's prom guidelines. Kolek said Max would be allowed to attend - with a more appropriate date.

First off, we'd like to see the specific Weston High School statute that disallows taking porn stars to prom. And secondly ... we absolutely cannot wait to follow Meisel's career with the Orange. The guy is 5-4, won a contest on Howard Stern and was carried off the field of a spring game. And he's not even in school yet! We shall be watching, Mr. Meisel, we guarantee you.

(UPDATE: Here's the story of why he was carried off the field.)
