    Dude go cry somewhere else. Tackle was a much higher need than safety and it’s not even close.

    God, I wish. I’ll never be as wise, or handsome, as Risen.

    The battle during rookie mini camp between Parsons and Ball could be disturbing.

    How does a woman accuse a guy of “multiple dating violence”?

    He was violent with her on a date and then continued to date him while he continued to be violent?

    Something doesn’t seem right here.

    I can find 1 video of him playing and the feet look really good and he looks plenty athletic for a big man. Everything looks very natural.

    These big guys.. So much is determine by their feet, knee bend, and punch. I just wish I had more video but it’s clear he isn’t heavy footed.

    It’s hard to find video on these guys.

    Didn't see any convictions.

    Not one to presume the worst.

    Right, because women always leave the first time a guy is violent. They never make excuses or rationalize it.

    WEll before he pulled a dummy he did start at FSU as a redshirt freshman. His draft profile might look better had he started 4 years there. I'm not sure of the exact difference in coaching and strength training between FSU and Marshall, but I'm sure it is there.

    Why do we assume that someone can't turn their life around after three years? If he's had issues since then, then I'm with you.

    They had been dating for a year, she applied for an injunction for a restraining order, and the school suspended him. The 11 acts of violence happened over their dating period.

    The Bad:
    11 Counts is a lot, some of these were brutal (locked her in a closet, broke a car key, slapped her, got upset because she went to Disney World while he was in concussion recover, etc. These are what I've read on twitter).

    The Less Bad:
    Apparently FSU wanted him back and he was willing, but bad press and pressure he decided to switch to Marshall. Lots of testimonial from coaches and staff at Marshall that said he was good and all these was 3-4 years ago.

    So very best case, it was all overblown, but doesn't matter, something happened it seems.

    I suppose OK case - he had some issues but has since matured.

    Worst Case - Ritchie Incognito with less talent.

    Back in 2017. Nothing ever reported afterwards. Guy was 18 back than but yeah he probably didnt change and is a thug.
