It’s not just because he’s returning home to play for the Missouri men’s basketball team, a commitment he announced Friday on Twitter. opened up about pressure and his desire to make Mizzou Arena thrive again Tuesday at the United Center in Chicago, where he will play in the Mc Donald's All-American Game on Wednesday evening.

Even though this guy and I were 25 years apart, we had a lot in common. I didn't know then that our age gap would define the relationship. I got that; but even though I knew there was no future, I didn’t cut it off completely. After it ended, he talked to a lot of people about our relationship -- and what happened through the grapevine was unexpected. Women judged me as having an ulterior, economic motive: “She just dated him for his money,” or “She thought she could get ahead.” In our society people are so quick to judge a young, naïve woman -- never the older man who perhaps should’ve known better too.

In her defense, Rachel's season finale was Monday night -- so it makes sense she'd be making the rounds, posing at all the stops along the way.
Still, this display of affection is a bit too on the nose for us not to cringe. here's hoping they're couple #6 to actually tie the knot for 'Bachelor' Nation.
Sending nude photos is something “most of the kids in my town high school have accepted as just part of getting a guy to like you,” said a Bergen County high schooler who agreed to speak with The Record if her name was not used.
For the most part, it is girls sending pictures to boys, who ask casually.

became an assistant coach on Romar’s staff with the Huskies. led Nathan Hale High to a Washington Class 3A crown.
