Does anybody know if these Dontre Wilson rumors are true? In case you haven't heard they are that Dontre will miss some Spring Practice due to grade problems. Hopefully if they are true he can be back ASAP!

Link or just twitter doing its thing?

Some dude started it on twitter yesterday. Not true whatsoever. Twitter is a cruel tool.

At least twitter is more reliable than Bucknuts. And judging by Birm's comments (hope I'm not reading in to it too much) it looks like there could be smoke to this fire.

I don't see any smoke coming from Birm's comments.

Edit: Smoke to this fire? There's "fire" but we're looking for the smoke? Lol. I think you are mixed up.❄️

Smoke is a sign of incomplete combustion. A good, efficient fire has no or very little smoke. Just sayin'.

Well, I've seen several tweets and I've seen several comments on these forums, so I was just wondering if anybody knew the true story.

Not sure what tweets you've seen, I follow a ton of people regarding information for all aspects of tOSU and I haven't seen anything at all.  Chalk this up as false.

He does need to hit the books from what I've heard also.  I don't know if that means he won't participate...but there is definitely work to be done.

Not saying this is true or isn't true, and we'll find out soon enough, but there's really nothing more unfair than these types of threads when they pop up. I mean, I get that people are curious, but if it's false then it really is a slap in the face to the player in question.

vitaminB's picture

All he asked is if anyone could confirm the tweets he'd seen.  It's hardly a face slapping situation, Birm.

True, perhaps I am a bit touchy about these things but I think you know what I mean. Rumors are part of the job, yes, but unfortunately the internet does make it quite easy for folks to just make something "stick" without substantiation.

Sorry, I didn't mean to make any rumors I just wanted to see if things on Twitter were perhaps true. I just hope things go smoothly for everybody during the spring and of course the regular season. But anyway thanks for clearing things up.

It's the fastest way in the world to get current information, news, headlines, weather, etc. Twitter isn't the problem...it's the dumbasses who cause trouble on it. I am always amused by the people who don't "get" Twitter. If you like your information slow and slanted, read a newspaper.

Twitter rocks. But, as should be expected, there are a lot of really terrible people on there. It's a small portion, though.

The whole "omg twitter is so dumb I'm so glad I'll never get one" thing is so 2010.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Just wait and see. If not, then no bother, if so, then Im sure Urban (and Dontre) will make sure things are remedied in the classroom.

Hopefully this is not true.  If so, perhaps Aaron Craft can tutor him a bit.

I would wait for the ball coach to share that info. I know it's not meant as a slight against the player but it does sound like it when people bring this up. Cardale Jones and I think Cornelder who went to UK went through this. And if it is true I'm sure he wouldn't want it all over twitter or blog post. Just my two pennies

I love me some Dontre, but I gotta say that if it were me in this situation (rumors about struggling with academics) I think I would chose to use much better grammar in my response, no?

btalbert25's picture

Hope it isn't true just because these grade issues seem to persist with players a lot of the time.  One question I do have, though, is what kind of player do people expect Dontre to be?  There wasn't a lot I saw out of him last year that was just jaw dropping.  Maybe with time in the weight room and hard work to be a better blocker he'll get better, but I saw a guy who was really fast, but really couldn't make guys miss or break a tackle to break off a huge play where his speed could be used.  One thing with Teddy was he could make guys miss and could stop on a dime then accelerate to top end speed very quickly.  Maybe it's not fair to compare him to Ginn at this point, but to this point has he done anything on the field that warrants all the hoopla?  Quite honestly, a much lower rated recruit, Timmons, had just as good of a freshman year, with a HORRIBLE team around him.

WesPatterson23's picture

Well, I think that is why Timmons had as good a year. If you listened to any of Tom Herman's interviews he said that with Carlos and Braxton running so well, it's just hard to take it out of there hands and give it to Dontre. So I think next year with experience and time in the weight room, I believe he can be a big time, dependable player.
