The Jets waived Smith.
Smith (6’1, 199) tore his ACL during Phase One of the offseason workout program. The Ohio State product appeared in four games last season after starting the year on the PUP list as he was rehabbing from another ACL tear suffered in December 2015.
“It’s bad luck and bad timing because the kid worked so hard to get back," head coach Todd Bowles said following the second day of the NFL Draft. “He has to persevere and adversity will help him get stronger. But unfortunately in this game, over my course of time playing and coaching, you see these types of things. Some of the best athletes get hurt and don’t get a chance to get on the field and it’s just bad timing, bad luck.”
If Smith clears waivers, he would revert to Injured Reserve.
I'm only fifteen years older than our usual recruits, but I have plenty of eligibility left and it looks like I might just get the call.
This is actually a great PR move. Who is a better spokesman on Planned Parenthood Day than the guy who had an ex-girlfriend circulate thousands of flyers stating that he gave her a curable STD? This is a boon for public health in Cleveland.
You asked "What did you think of the documentary?"
How can "no" be an answer to your question?
I'll take that as a no.
Have you finished reading Yoffe's fact-check of the documentary you urged another commenter to see?
The rape kit only determines whether sex took place and whether fluids were left behind. In this case, Conley seems to have said he didn't have sex with her at all, so it will look very bad indeed if his DNA is found in the kit. Failing to find his DNA would fail to prove anything either way.
How do you prove that you didn't do something? It's very difficult, isn't it? And even if you do have some proof, others may often have doubt.
Joe Blow's neighbor had a cat. The cat has gone missing. How can Joe Blow prove that he didn't kidnap the cat and dispose of it?
It's far easier to prove to me that you did have pizza last night than to prove to me that you didn't have McDonald's, isn't it?
You're committing what is called the "argument from ignorance" fallacy, assuming that guilt is the default position in the face of the inability to determine what happened.
However, if nothing comes of this investigation, and it is unable to be proven that it didn't happen, this will linger over Conley's head for the rest of his life.
How do you prove that something didn't happen? (For bonus points, how do you do so to the satisfaction of those who already make positive claims as to what happened in this case?)
I wasn't being a pedant or a jerk, sorry if it came out that way. I made my comment because I love that we have such a system, as slow and as cautious and occasionally flawed as it is. In general, both accusers and accused will receive a fair hearing in a court of law.
The accuser is not under obligation to prove his or her claim in court. That's why we have police officers, detectives and prosecutors.
How do you prove a negative?
So you haven't read the Yoffe article I linked to? She fact-checks the documentary.
You said that he must believe "science and math" are "propaganda."
It's perfectly fine to invite him to watch the film. But what if the criticisms of the film are correct? Have you bothered with those?
There were actually some very interesting criticisms of the film. It seems somewhat unfriendly to denigrate another commenter in that way.
One of them quotes the CAA statement: "drinking 8-10 bottles of water before he went to bed,"
Assuming they just mean a standard water bottle size:
That's between 135 oz and 169 oz of water...right before bed.
That's between 1 full gallon and 1.3 gallons of water.
Right before bed.
The NFL is a private entity that has determined they will only hire people who are three years out of high school. That's not the NCAA's problem. College football players are welcome to play elsewhere or to get another job suited to their skills and needs.
Why do colleges need to outbid each other financially? Students receive many tens of thousands of dollars of value a year, including cold, hard cash.
They are more than welcome to sell their labor to the highest bidder. There are many other jobs other than "football player."
Many businesses do offer housing and books in addition to salary to employees. In fact, college football students are far, far better off than the majority of recent college graduates.
Shaking Jabrill Peppers' hand?
Yeah, definitely hand-washing time.
Isn't that what the recruitment process is for? And there's no stopping a college football player from selling his labor to any of the companies that will be happy to pay him for it.
That's crazy. The TTUN AD should call in someone who knows how to encourage better behavior in malls.
Here's a picture of Bo in an Ohio State hat. He's up in that back row, right?
Pryor is a current All-Pro receiver. I'm going to take a wild guess that more recruits know about him than Art Schlichter.
