    I care even less about his career than he apparently does. Most people will never get anything close to the chance he was afforded. I just hope he stays out of jail and doesn’t harm others. Maybe he will eventually figure it out.

    Several thoughts here.

    First, to quote Bugs Bunny, “What a maroon.” Golden lifetime opportunity, at a position of need, and throw it away in a college bar.

    Second, as others have already stated, this stuff doesn’t happen in a vacuum. Social problems, academic problems, and problems playing within a system most often go together, due to the fundamental mindset that leads to all three.

    Finally, due to #2 above, I’m guessing there’s a lot more incidents of all kinds that haven’t made the news. If it were his first incident, I doubt it would have resulted in immediate and total dismissal.
    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    I`m pretty sure that the above would qualify as a dangerous combo !! If accurate, not exactly stellar judgment on the part of the punchee ( not in any way justifying the actions of the puncher, mind you ).

    Looks like we might be seeing him on Last Chance U .

    Seriously, though I hope he can get the right people in his life to guide him to make better decisions. One opportunity is missed and hope he takes advantage of his next one wherever that may be.

    Keep that kind of stuff up and you can find that your next " opportunity " is on the back of a garbage truck. Or worse. Not meant as a slight to sanitation workers, just intended as an example of a " what could have been " moment.

    The man managing the roster is really the only thing that matters here. Coach brought the kid in, worked with him and then cut him...nuf said.

    Will never fault CNS for giving the kid every opportunity to get his act together. Sometimes it just doesn't work out.

    For the guys making the snarky AU comments, I would take him if he goes to JUCO for a year, pays his dues and seems to get his act together. I'm all about giving a kid that screwed up a shot provided he takes the opportunity to learn and grow from his mistakes.

    So would I. Come to think of it, hasn`t CNS done precisely that, or something similar? A certain player from Georgia comes to mind. May not have been exactly the same.

    I agree. Bama did this with DJ Pettway and it turned out well for both parties. And the original school he left was Bama and his crime was far worse, though his involvement was sketchy. He tried the NFL and was not able to make it. Jeremy Pruitt has hired him to his UT staff (defensive quality control asst). That's a great recommendation. Hope it continues to work out for him.

    IIRC, the new SEC rule will prevent him from attending a SEC school if he goes to JUCO.

    because of the type of offense? Or because of some other reason?

    Looks like it would depend on the final charges...

    SEC expands its serious misconduct policy to include high school players

    https://www.si.com/college-football/...estic-violence

    Incoming SEC commissioner Greg Sankey said he believes the SEC is the first league to make such a rule, which comes at a time when there is more public pressure for sports leagues to take a harder stance against domestic and sexual violence. “It’s an understanding of the current climate,” Sankey said.


    The rule would not ban every player dismissed from a school for disciplinary reasons. For example, quarterback Nick Marshall still would have been allowed to sign with Auburn even if this rule had been in effect at the time. Marshall was dismissed from Georgia following a theft from a teammate.
    Sankey said the rule does not take into account the legal system but instead uses the previous university’s response as a trigger for the ban. So even a player whose criminal charges were still pending would be banned from transferring to an SEC school. Sankey said that like all other SEC bylaws, this rule would also have a waiver process to cover extraordinary cases.
    My thing is, his was more of a assault charge... But either way, I don't expect him to land at a SEC school next year. JUCO is his best shot and He can land at P5 schools next year.
    We are champions. We can prove it! *counting 15 championships*
