This just makes me sick to my stomach. Apparently the Department of Defense has changed its stance on allowing cadets who play professional sports to serve their two years at local recruiting offices.
Now this guy has to report back to West Point and get shipped overseas somewhere. I understand the argument that he signed up for this eventuality and should be bound by it, but wtf, it's only one guy and now he has to put off a 3 year contract, and most likely his dream of playing professional football.
The Lions haven't done much right recently, but I truly believe drafting Caleb Campbell was a great move by the organization. Now, the kid misses out on his dream, the Lions lose a player and a draft pick is wasted. Just another instance where the government messed up big time.
EDIT: I just read the ESPN article and watced their report and apparently he won't be going overseas to Iraq or Afghanistan, rather he will be a graduate assistant at West Point... so basically he can't be a pro player because he has to help Army Football out. Terrible.
