        I hope it isn’t that for his sake…
        Yup when I was listening to Matt & the crew it didn't sound good-man!

          Rowland has usually been pretty reputable, and he now says he doesnt think Crod will play. He also stated this is very serious and hopes other players were not involved.
          whatever this is, the rumor mill is rampant.....decidedly not academics. Some vague rumors about money OUTSIDE of NIL "guidelines"....whatever those are, such as direct payment by a booster.

          As of any true facts, there are none that I have seen. Someone could write Crod was found to be a Russian infiltrator, or Martian for that matter.

          At this point though there is a strong sense that we may have seen the last of Rodriguez...I say that because I would hazard a guess he takes the same route as Jarmon and enters the NFL supplemental draft if he is not allowed to play.

            Well....it seems as of now the correct answer is 'ask again later' as far as Crods availability for the upcoming season.
            I havent read anything other than rumors about possible issues....and those are everywhere.
            Best of luck to Chris.

              The fight last year was a conduct code violation, but I think some or most of the players were cleared. But it took a while. There have been tons of others over the years, but they are mostly low-level.

              If you read the paper you can sort out just about everyone who has been dismissed from the team over some criminal charge. A linebacker from Louisville, a DB a while back.

              When players who play leave for non-obvious reasons, severe but not necessarily criminal code of conduct violations are a likely cause.

                So if Chris is suspended for multiple games to begin the season, do you all think that we have a guy who can step up at his place without much drop off?

                  I think we have good backs that can fill in but, none at the same level as CRod.

                    We got a visit, the other day, from a player whose name escapes me at the moment. He's transferring from a FCS school but some people think he might be able to soften the blow if we lose CRod.

                      The name is Ramon Jefferson.

                        Chris is great and reliable in tough yardage situations. Having said that I think Jutaun Mclain (sp?) is really good and I'm excited to see what he can do.

                          I agree. I said, before he set foot on campus, that he would be very good if he stayed at least three years. I was afraid he would get discouraged and transfer. In my opinion, he's too good to sit. I guess he's going to stick it out though as he will be a Jr. this coming season. I'm not sure it's appropriate to compare him to CRod. Jutahn is more of a get to the edge and take off type of runner.

                            If we sign Ramon Jefferson, he's more of a CRod type of runner.

                              I just hope CRod will be allowed to play. IMO he's our best and has a toughness the outers don't have.

                                Ridge Wilson was the fella from Louisville. As was Tubman. Maybe Petrino was turning them in out of spite.
