This is a pretty misleading headline.  He had an inconclusive test result due to a diluted sample.  Now the question is, why was it diluted?  Did he try to drink too much water to throw off the test because he thought he would test positive for something?  Did he have food poisoning like he claims?  Did he just get sponsored by Recovery Water?

There is no conclusive evidence that he had anything illicit in his system, but obviously there will be some concerns when you combine this with his altercation in the medical facility that got him sent home from the combine.

And that's certainly your prerogative, but they still probably made the best long term decision for the team.  Real fans would rather see the team win a championship in the summer, than see him play some random game in November.

But it turns out that isn't the end goal.  In college football it pretty much is because you have to in order to make the playoffs.  In the NFL, players often sit out games 15 or 16 on teams that have clinched or on awful teams that are out.  No reason to care about a random game in April.

I don't see anything wrong with any of this.  The coaches back then were idiots, taking a worse strategy to avoid appearing "weak" is just dumb.  And now players are trying to make the most money for the least amount of effort?  Isn't that literally what everyone is always trying to do in a capitalist economic system?  If you could find a job where I worked half as much and made twice as much, who would turn it down?  Also I believe MLB gets paid a lot more than anyone due to lack of salary cap.

Felt appropriate to bump this thread tonight.  Nice call on the unis.  I think the socks are the best part to be honest.

I think it likely comes down to who wins The Game.  Harbaugh will win COY if they win, Urban if we win.  Maybe Riley from the West could steal it if they win out, but other than that.  I think it is between us and them.

Weber seems quicker in tight spaces while Elliot had the home run speed at the second level and never got run down from behind.  For efficiency's sake the quickness is better because he can hit smaller holes more quickly, but it might limit the 50+ yard runs against teams with good secondary speed.

Jeez just saw another knock in the head for Hyde and didn't return after it. Again, I have no idea if there was anything to it, but I swear these guys just get pummeled.  Not a surprise that so many end up with CTE or other similar issues later in life.

Welp obviously I was wrong and couldn't be happier.  May have just been evaluated, or maybe he was just winded from running by all of the defenders so fast.

Comment 12 Sep 2016

I don't have any inside info and we'll see on this next series if he comes back out, but he left the game right after it and like I said, I didn't see him out there afterwards.

Really talented, hate to see injuries cost someone a chance to be a star (Shazier is in that boat too).

Comment 12 Sep 2016

He hit his head pretty hard on his last big run and I don't think I saw him in there for the last few plays.  Hopefully didn't get another concussion so soon after that last one.

With so little information available I am not sure how anyone can give a clear statement of support either way.  In a general sense I am glad that the football coach does not control the actions of the school.  However it may also be the case that he feels that there is insuffcient evidence to show that the code was actually violated or maybe a suspension for so long is an excessive punishment for the violation.  Without more information it is impossible for anyone to definititively say who is right or wrong.
