This. Storm Klein was initially kicked off the team when he allegedly choked his GF, but charges were dismissed and he pled down. He was eventually let back on the team after Urban suspended him and other presumably internal punishments. 

I like this much better than waiting and seeing if he's guilty. Reinforces that playing at OSU is a privilege and it can be taken away from you at any time if you break the rules. You can earn the right back again, but it's first and foremost a privilege.

Good point. I think Meyer's first move with Storm Klein was also to kick him off the team. Once more facts came out, he was allowed back. Could be a similar issue now. Kick him off, no team activites, etc. while the legal system sorts things out. If he's found not guilty, let him back. If not, then good riddance. 

EDIT. Hate it's an ESPN article, but Klein was immediately kicked off and then re-instated after charges were dropped. Storm was still suspended, though, so I doubt we'll see Dunn in any game action early in the season, if he's re-instated. http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/8298103/ohio-state-reinstates-linebacker-storm-klein-team

The problem is Samuel, Wilson and McCall are all built like scat backs, and Weber and Williams both have freshmen eligibility. Dunn's experience would have been very useful in that position group. 

Whatever Dunn did, I hope he learns from this and becomes a better person for it. He at least has his degree so he can transfer to another school and play right away.

Yea...drinking and driving is not a joking matter. With all of the resources available now to get home, there's no excuse for making that decision.

I actually think he miscalculated. He thought that the North would never rally behind a non-Stark, but it clearly happened. He also thought that Sansa would want power and that she would ally with him but she is content sitting next to Jon Snow. It will be interesting to find out how he rights the ship, but I don't think this is part of his plan at all. 

Of course, it will be easier to right the ship once he finds out that Cersei is now sitting on the Iron Throne.

Should have had Lebron in goal instead of Guzan.

Btw, I don't think I could throw a soccer ball into that spot. Impressive free kick. 

Comment 20 Jun 2016

Agreed, although Curry was also out there. I saw him congratulating Irving afterwards as well.

As far as I can tell, the only one who left early and pouted was Klay "this is a man's league, I guess his feelings got hurt" Thompson.

I love that Green is screaming "Why not!" at the official after he was called for the foul. "Why can't I ram my elbow into his back? That's a perfectly legit basketball move!"

Interesting article on "short QBs" that I buy. Basically, being short isn't the problem. It's the related problem that shorter people have shorter arms, which makes the release point lower. That could impact the short throws as shorter QBs need to arch the throws to get over the heads of the linemen. 

The takeaway is, if Martell learns to have a high release point, he could still be successful despite being "short." I think it is a learnable skill as Peyton Manning used to throw his short passes on his toes. And if it's a learnable skill, combined with the attitude that earned him the nickname "over my dead body", I wouldn't put it past him to still be successful. We shall see.

In addition, Cersei is prophesied to be killed by a "younger brother." While it was entertaining to think it would be Tyrion, it is more likely that she will be killed by Jaime. It makes Jaime's trip to the Riverrun a bit more relevant as he will now have to kill the woman he loves in the name of duty and honor.
