Andre Smith got lost on his way to Bloomington. The former Alabama Crimson Tide star was driving to a football camp at Illinois Wesleyan when he wisely decided to stop and ask for directions.

According to Pro Football Talk, “I said, ‘How far is Bloomington?’” Smith told the Bloomington (Ill.) Pantagraph. “They said, ‘Which Bloomington?’ I went, ‘Ahhh, don’t tell me that.’”

According to the newspaper, “It turns out Smith was closer to Bloomington, Ind., than our Bloomington. Thus, he arrived at IWU at 4:30 p.m., just as the second of Tuesday’s three sessions wrapped up. Camp co-directors Norm Eash, IWU’s head football coach, and Paul Alexander, the Bengals’ 16th-year offensive line coach, had sweated out Smith’s arrival for two days amid 90-plus degree heat.”

With that big signing bonus headed his way (assuming he doesn’t hold out), I’d suggest an iPhone with compass or OnStar.

  1. Geez, LOL!!!

    Cap, did you know Andre??

    I just can’t imagine he’s like the media is portraying him. Is he?

    Thank goodness that young man can block. Hate to see him make it in the real world IF he does really act like that.


  2. I’ll say this, if every stupid thing I did was written about in a newspaper, then I’d look like a much larger buffoon.

    I’m just glad the attention isn’t on me.

  3. Cap, LOL!!!!!!!!

    No doubt dude. I can’t even omagine if cameras and all were micro managing everything I do. Wow.

    I think Andres a good kid thats just a little immature. Who wasn’t at that age? He’ll grow out of it.

    If he stays focused, gonna be great.
