Former M target...
Dillon Baxter no longer on USC football team (per Joe Schad twitter)
We dodged that bullet. He has been a disaster ever since he got on to campus.
seems to happen a lot. I can think of TP and TommyG off the top of my head. Maybe its the coaching or lack thereof...
EMo, you can take him off your depth chart now.
comment!!! but if that ass clown comes back now its on you...
its a shame he is under the guidance of a coach who cheats and steals to get what he wants.
his girlfriend's child. Hopefully he's doing the wise thing here and joining the workforce to support the kid.
by rejoining the USC football program
Why take a paycut?
And he pooped in the refrigerator.
Let's not mix our metaphors! :0)
How on earth do you get kicked off of a team coached by Lane Kiffin?
Think Craig James.
The CRAIG JAMES that DID not KILL FIVE HOOKERS while AT SMU?
Goodbye, mister Baxter. You'll always have that one awesome long run from last year's spring game.
Tough break for the University of Sexual Ballers
MOAR Kim Kardashian!!!
Thats not even the right acronym...USB?
Double pet peeve on VamosAzul!
#1 Pet Peeve
#2 Pet Peeve - When people respond to others in a "what the fuck are you talking about?" nature when it's that person is responding that doesn't know "what the fuck they're talking about."
The "USB" IS the right acronym...because he's referring to Marc Tyler's drunken self from the TMZ video that the whole world saw, ESPN showed over and over, and he was SUSPENDED for.
The fact that his call out got +1'd by someone else is also laughable...c'mon folks, #dobetter
From what I hear from the West Coast: The guy had poor practice habits. Out side of a mega gift for running the ball, he would not make the effort to learn the right way to block a blitzer, run routes or set-up blocks. He was buried on a very talented depth-chart so deep that he needed a construction site dig arm to get back onto the field.
He got to be more trouble than he was worth for a coach and a team that is really looking like a threat next season if Barkley sticks around.
That's unfortunate. He could at least be converted into a decent wide-receiver if all he wants to do is get the ball and run and not do the tough stuff like block DL's and LBer's.
The construction site dig arm thingie is called a backhoe.
Craig James in the sense that he had "helicopter" parents? Then yes, at least according to Petros.
Isn't Bryce McNeal doing the same thing at Clemson? I think he's graduating early, then he's going to transfer and play for a different school next year.
Not sure if Baxter is under the same circumstances, but I'm just saying that there's a situation where a player is not on the team but is focusing on his studies and not transferring yet.
Any player you lose when you only get 15 schollarships a year has to really hurt.
hence the positive sentiments from USC... they're not mad, they're actually amazed
