Talking Points: Eighth grader Evan Berry speaks, world goes crazy

  • On interpreting the comments of eighth graders. That whole Evan Berry committing to Tennessee thing? Over-eager reporter. The reporter saw him at a track meet, found out that he was Eric Berry's brother, and asked him about Tennessee. Evan answered "a follow up question" by saying he was "committed" to Tennessee. (Evan and Elliott, by the way, are rising eighth graders, not ninth, as was originally reported.) My eighth grader is "committed" to her pony and computer games, just for context.
