    Mizzou cuts Dorial Green-Beckham

    Missouri has dismissed star wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham from the team, coach Gary Pinkel announced Friday.

    "This decision was made with the best interests of all involved in mind," Pinkel said in a statement. "Dorial's priority going forward needs to be focusing on getting the help he needs. As we have all along, we will continue to do everything we can to assist Dorial and his family. We care deeply about Dorial and his well-being, but hopefully he can benefit from a fresh start."
    Green-Beckham was the subject of an investigation by Columbia, Mo., police this week after an 18-year-old Missouri student said the receiver forced open her apartment door at 2:30 a.m. Sunday while trying to see his girlfriend, a friend of the alleged victim.

    The woman said Green-Beckham pushed her down at least four stairs.

    DGB was considered by many to be the top HS Football Player in America in the Class of 2012. Texas recruited him very, very hard and then kinda backed off of him a bit. Many thought it was simply because he had more interest in Missouri or some other school. I wonder if perhaps Mack and the Texas staff new something more? Same deal with RSJ.

    May never know.

    NFL caliber talent with serious character concerns.

    He'll resurface for another team and be lights out on the field in all likelihood.
    How long he can go between arrests is anyone's guess at this point.
