USC Freshman Ronald Jones II Got Sick From Lack of Texas BBQ

Stephen Douglas

Texas has the best barbecue in America. Just ask anyone who lives there. Ronald Jones II, a freshman running back at USC, is from Texas. Apparently, his system took a while to adjust to the namby pamby California cuisine and he got sick during training camp. Via Reign of Troy:

"“I was just feeling a little dizzy and dazed for a couple of days, I don’t know what exactly was going on. I guess I was just a little homesick with the food, like Whataburger and stuff like that.” “I just got to get me some Whataburger and some Texas BBQ up here.”"

Whataburger is a Texas-based burger chain with over 700 locations in the South. Jones finished his first game with 86 yards and a touchdown on 6 carries. If he keeps up that pace boosters will by airlifting Salt Lick and Franklin into California before you know it.
