Bad News - The T-Shirt - 07-05-2017 10:22 PM

I'm betting the Enquirer will find a sudden interest in us very soon.

BTW: hello Mr. Groeschen, you're last to know again. Go back to eating your breakfast.

Oh lord... here we go.

Not the first time kid has found himself in trouble. Shame.

Why? You're going into your junior year as a surefire starter with a rising program... don't know what his NFL prospects were, but he had a chance. Worst-case scenario, he was getting a free college education. He's innocent until proven guilty, but if any of this is true, bye-bye.

He definitely had a shot at playing on Sunday's. He had four picks last year and was our best corner with two years to go. Not his first run in with the law and if convicted of aggravated robbery he will be looking at a minimum of 3 years in the pokey.

Whenever I see stuff like this it reminds me of Akise Teague...too bad, if you're that stupid, someone else deserves your spot. There are 40,000 other students trying to get that degree who don't point guns at people, it's not that hard.

According to the story, he was present to knock on a door to get someone to come out so his partner could confront him. The incident continued and he was then chasing the victim down a hallway. Sounds like he's already admitted to the police that he was involved (right after they read him his Miranda rights).

Seems like an open and shut case.

Got to get rid of him. So stupid. Was always high on this kid. Always said he had NFL potential.

Bond set at $100,000

They chased and stole a guy's pot....on camera. Bueno.


RE: Bad News - robertfoshizzle - 07-06-2017 09:10 AM

ESPN picked the story up and it popped up on the front page of Yahoo when I visited a few minutes ago. Always upsetting when a knucklehead brings shame to our university.

Saw Sporting News, SI and other outlets as well. Look it was a bad move-- but I don't get all the coverage. We are constantly told our program doesn't move the meter nationally, yet national outlets and a newspaper in Cleveland have picked the story up.

Perhaps our school moves the meter a little more than people think/constantly tell us. As idiotic as Thomas is in all this, this is not really a sexy crime that merits much coverage outside of the city if we are being honest.


RE: Bad News - rath v2.0 - 07-06-2017 09:18 AM

Its a starting DB, involving a gun, chasing another kid on camera to steal drugs.

That's got all the markers of being newsworthy.

I'm not sweating it. He gawn.


RE: Bad News - Lush - 07-06-2017 09:18 AM

that's not a good look. at least he wasn't the guy shot to death a block down the street from my house last evening

Well at least a non P5 school made ESPN's football page. That's rare. 03-nutkick

I'm sure you'll take the case, pro bono.

Most of the things that I know about criminal law I learned in my misguided youth.

RE: Bad News - rath v2.0 - 07-06-2017 09:47 AM

I spent a night in the hoosegow once for not paying a speeding ticket on time when I was in college....gives me street cred.

What's not rare is the stupidity/immaturity of some individuals in a position to gain so much, which others have helped present for them, and the squandering
of a possible life long opportunity. Next player in,,
