This is a great shame. I would not be surprised if he doesn't go drafted.
Remember Mike Williams from USC who tried to go out under the Maurice Clarett role, but the NCAA slavemasters...excuse me policy makers...would not let him?
He didn't play for a year.
People will think of all the folks who sat out football for a year, and then look to see how they did in the NFL.
Myron Rolle is another name that comes to mind. The guy was a Rhodes Scholar. Honey Badger has loads of personal issues, even if they're no more serious than "smoking marijuana," teams don't like that. I mean, the Panthers owner asked Cam Newton to keep his hair cut and to not get tattooed up. In other words 'don't be too black, Cam. our fans won't like that.'
Honey Badger is too black, has not played football in a year, and is always in the news for the wrong things.
Perhaps someone will gamble on him in the later round, but this is a rather surprising decision.
I'm hoping he does better than I think.
We'll see. It's very competitive to get into the NFL no matter what.
True. I'm rooting for him. He was so exciting; feel like we were robbed of something special by missing him play this year in college football.
