No matter how good the pussy is I still always gotta get doom.
fair point that
No matter how good the pussy is I still always gotta get doom.
I know, no complaints, yadda yadda yadda...
Let's just leave it at this. He won't be blue. Period. Yes, I had a period at the end of the sentence but I added the extra one just because...
Let's just leave it at that. And throw Diggs in there as well. Not that I wouldn't like him in a Michigan uniform, but it just isn't in the cards...
Expelling a student for tweets says a lot more about the school than the student. Nowhere did he demonstrate that he was threatening anyone. He just spoke like an idiot. There must be more to the story. While his tweets were in poor taste and definitely did not represent him well, they are hardly reasons to expel a kid from school.
I agree. I'm pretty sure he's had prior incidents so this was probably the last straw but still, expulsion because of twitter? I remember the 'rumors' of him having attitude problems earlier in his recruitment but figured it was just like any other attitude rumor and didn't even think about it. Guess this one was different...
I know Bosco they wouldn't kick him out just because of that. He must have done more to encourage Bosco do that. Plus it would look bad for the program to have a star player have a bunch of offers yanked.
Also, as far as graduating, how hard would it be for him to enroll in his home district for a few months?
not an option for Yuri anymore either...Then again, maybe Kelly would look past the unsavory tweets. Albeit, I am not sure if the higher powers at ND would. He does have a pretty extensive offer list so I imagine he can look elsewhere, in addition to Rutgers.
This kid tweeted a slang term for oral sex. The slang term is dome and he wrote doom. He probably was getting passed along thru school because of his athletic ability because it's obvious he's not too bright
Can't really base his intelligence on how well he spells in his twitter posts. After all its twitter. I will say this though...he seems like an EPIC douche nozzle for someone his age.
Urban and ohio I'd say!
Sorry, couldn't resist.
If you work at a Chick-fil-a restaurant you can get fired for not wearing black socks with your uniform. As a matter of fact you can get fired from most any fast food restaurant for not wearing the required uniform.
I'm pretty sure they have a written code of conduct there....as does um for their athletes.
Now whether the way they handled it (after the season) was hypocritical or not may be a more valid point to argue, especially after all the facts are out.
Edit: I was actually responding to an earlier post which stated his tweets were something that should not warrant getting the boot from school.
Don Bosco is a private CATHOLIC high school. Any Catholic high school worth a lick is going to kick out a kid who posts stuff like that in public.
I went to a Catholic high school that competed with Don Bosco, the kid is lucky he didn't get some corporal punishments from friars...
If his tweets are any indication of his intellect, I doubt he'd score high enough on the SAT or ACT to make it into school.
Usually, I wouldn't say anything about a kid, but somebody needs to be a role model for him and tell him how bad that makes him look, not only now, but a few years down the road when he's looking for a job.
I'm sure he thinks he will be playing on Sundays, but what if he doesn't? What HR department would take a chance on him?
Something tells me that this isn't the last we hear about this kid because he can play from the look of things and can hopefully finish school somewhere, but for now, the object lesson seems to be that you shouldn't tweet anything that you would not want casual acquaintances, total strangers, etc...to retweet, even if your account is private and only select people were supposed to see what you posted, and especially if you're being looked at seriously by high-profile programs.
His comments go back all the way to July... If these tweets were grounds for expulsion, he should have been monitored... He should have been punished for his comments while representing the team, and been suspended... We all know he was only attending that school for football and earning an education in return... Now Don Bosco wants to punish him after he helped to a great season and represented them in a televised all american game? I really hope the kid graduates on time... Fuck Don Bosco prep...
I have to say I agree, soemwhat anyway. I previously posted how much of a moron this kid is, but it is some BS how they are now expelling him, January of his SR year. Some of these tweets go back to October I thought I saw. Monitor him then. I understand the school probably has a charter and he broke that, but let the kid graduate fergodsakes; what good is expelling him going to do at this point. Punish him in other ways that don't affect his future. Tweeting all that mess, however, is Eff'ing stupid and this kid does need to grow up.
I can guarantee you they were looking the other way until all of his tweets started to come out in the news. Once it was all made public they had to do something to save face and demonstrate that they don't show favoritism. I'm finding it really hard to have sympathy for the kid, we were all 18 once but those were some of the trashiest tweets/posts/texts I have ever seen in my life. They're doing him a favor in the long run, hopefully he can get himself together and grow up.
It looked bad for the school and the program.
If this article is correct, Don Bosco can go fuck themselves. I don't want Wright at Michigan, but the Tweets started back over the summer. Coaches and teammates had to be aware of them (even on private, he had to have some of those people on his allow list). Yet they use the kid and play him to win. Then once the season is over, they kick is ass of the team.
If you have a senior who is tweeting like this it is an indictment of your failure as an education institution as much as it is as a sign of his character issues. To wait to eject the kid for ongoing offenses once your season has wrapped up only makes it worse. People knew this kind of stuff was going on awhile back, hence Hoke cooling on him. Wright's coaches and teachers had to know he had character issues since they worked with him for 3.5 years. Yet they wait until he can't play another down for them and then suddenly they care about the character issues. It's like the high school version of Saban is running Bosco.
Also if it is true Yuri had his tweets on private and Chatsports infilitrated (likely making a profile and filling it with photos of some scantily clad girl), Ace (Not Our Ace: NOA) is only that much more dead to me.
Man am I glad social media wasn't around when I was in High School.
The reporter for the Bergen County, New Jersey newspaper that covers high school sports posted his thoughts last night about Yuri Wright's expulsion from Don Bosco Prep. For those too young to remember "CLOSE COVER BEFORE STRIKING" (not the EP from the band Luna), the lesson to be learned from this story for all of us who use social media might be: THINK CAREFULLY BEFORE POSTING.
