Unfair Park has no particular beef with Deion Sanders Jr. He, unlike his father, has never established a charter school and used it to get his own reality show, or tried to trick us into being a part of that reality show. He's just your average SMU student who enjoys Versace bed sheets.

However, the news that Deion Jr. tweeted a picture of himself chilling backstage with Lil Wayne, and that the tweeted picture has now prompted an investigation, is too rich to pass up.

The investigation doesn't seem to be terribly serious. It's being conducted by SMU's compliance office, not the NCAA.

"Just doing their due diligence," athletic department spokesman Brad Sutton told The Dallas Morning News in a text message. "We don't expect to find anything amiss, but it's our responsibility to check stuff like this out."

Deion Sr. weighed in on -- and apparently broke -- the story during a visit this week to Harlingen.

"This is how stupid my life is," he said at a press conference, according to the Valley Morning Star. "Lil Wayne is one of my best friends and they're trying to say they got in the concert because they're SMU players. That's how stupid stuff is. Isn't that stupid?"

The paper reports that he then "boasted ... of the hospitality provided at the Golden Corral." Truth.

Wayne is a pretty big sports fanatics so I don't see an issue.

They don't need to do an investigation to find that Turf Toe Jr. has shitty taste in music, so what are they looking for???

The Deion coverage is just getting sad. I understand you guys have a beef with him but this seems petty to me.

My investigation has revealed that Jr. loves wack tracks and track suits. Case closed.

Seems dumb, but considering what SMU has gone through over the past couple decades, I'm not surprised.

Daddy did get Junior a high school quarterback position at Flower Mound Marcus despite the kid being too short to see over the linemen's arses and a complete lack of QB skills.

I'll agree with Deion Sr., this is mighty stupid. A celebrity football player's son gets an invite backstage to get in FaceTime with another celebrity. Who cares?

Though I will say, I think it says a lot more about Deion Sr. when he calls Dwayne Carter one of his best friends.

You mean the same Dwayne Carter who has been incarcerated and arrested many times over the years for multiple drug and weapons charges?

I'm sure Dwayne Carter is a great role mode for Prime Prep Academy.

I guess I just don't get the 'Lil Wayne/Deion connection. Oh yeah, that's right, now I remember 1994's Prime Time.

Silly.

"Isn't that stupid"? Well Deion,only if it's just as stupid that an eight-foot tall wookie, would want to live on Endor, with two-foot tall ewoks. Now, which one sounds stupider?
