Robbie Hummel is currently playing on the US World University Games team. SI.com's Luke Winn has posted an interview with the Boiler standout that wonderfully outlines the multi-faceted world that is college athletics.
In the interview Hummel hits many bases including:
- Coach Matt Painter's axioms - "Everybody can't play shortstop and bat leadoff."
- The perils of fake MySpace and Twitter accounts - "My God that thing was making me sick."
- Fans obsessed with Hummel's back health - "Did you get that Eucalyptus oil? Call me back."
- What another big man could bring to the Boilers - "[Craig Brackins of Iowa State] is big, has post moves, and can shoot.
Just stay healthy Rob, and try not to make Coach Painter chuck too many balls off of the backboard.
