    Just a really bad situation. I wish the young man all the best. Knowing some things that I know about some of the stuff he's dealt with since being here (100% of it self-inflicted), I really hope he redeems himself with or without football. Everything happens for a reason. I just hope he can find his WHY.

    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.
    The difference is another chance would be about his third chance considering he's been kicked off his high school team and now kicked off Alabama's team. Not to say the kid will be a failure in life because of these struggles but playing football is a privilege and not something I feel bad about if someone isn't given 3 or 4 different chances at..

    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.

    Exactly. He obviously wants to do his own thing and I prefer team players who listen and succeed in life.

    To avoid pushing this to NS I'm not going to say specifics. I just wanted to voice my opinion that I disagree with some of what is being said. I hope he figures it out and succeeds in whatever he may want to do football or otherwise.

    I don't wish ill on him, but aside from hoping he turns his life around, that's pretty much where my support ends at this point.

    HATE to see this...

    I hate it for him. He is fresh out of second chances at Alabama.
    Coach Saban believes in giving guys a second chance.
    Physical Assault in a bar, says he threw away a golden opportunity at Alabama.

    I hate it for Alabama much more than I hate it for Van Darius.
