I have to say that I was rather shocked to hear the news of K. Jones not being part of the team the last couple of days. While we knew T. Jones and Pace were injured hearing they were done and that Talbott was soon to follow was rather jarring as well.
My question to the Mgocommunity is that how is any of this a shock in the age of facebook, twitter etc? I follow this blog religously and my friend keeps me updated from Scout. How does this stay secret as much as these guys are stalked? I come on here and find out guys are tracking the movements of 16yr olds, but among thousands of students/insiders/staff members/beat writers/teammates etc. we can't figure out a current student can barely walk and will never play again? A guy is kicked off the team and info and rumors are all over the place with nothing concrete.
I'm not asking people to pry further into these kids lives, but I'm just shocked things are able to stay quiet in this day and age and wonder if other people are as surprised. Seems like guys would have this posted much faster. If you saw C. Pace in class and asked him how it is going with rehab and he said he was done. I would imagine that guy would have it posted asap and everyone would know that within hours. I don't even really understand why Hoke doesn't get that info out himself( I understand why maybe the K. Jones situation would not be handled) but why not say that guys are put on medical redshirt?. Why the secrecy surrounding that?
