Once more, in the land of second chances

Petrino’s gonna Petrino; Grantham’s gonna Grantham.

ESPN’s Max Olson reported Monday that Fields is visiting Bobby Petrino’s program this weekend and that the Cardinals are “in the lead” to land the 2014 preseason Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year.

Despite that honor, Fields didn’t play a snap of NCAA football this past season, having been “separated” from TCU after being connected with a domestic violence incident in July. Fields allegedly punched and threatened an ex-girlfriend, and after a planned transfer to Stephen F. Austin fell through, transferred to Trinity Valley Community Valley College in Athens, Texas.

Athens, Texas ain’t Athens, Georgia.  Louisville ain’t, either.

    Amazing that people would stop caring about domestic abuse as fast as they started caring about it.

    Who could have seen that coming.

      Some people never cared about it. Seriously. It’s the same a traffic ticket for some of these coaches. It’s all about the Jimmies and the Joes.

    Did anybody check the footballs at the Belk Bowl?

    Petrino is already a tarnished dude and Grantham probably has zero interest in louisvile long term other than what his W-L and stats show. More of an indictment on the UL admin IMO

    Does the towel guy also attend when Grantham meets with recruits? Otherwise, onlookers might decipher what they’re saying.

    Perhaps they aren’t aware that a forearm shiv to a woman ain’t the same when playing a cfb game.

    Fields ought to check out Bama too. He would be a great complement to Jonathan Taylor.

    Is it just me or do these domestic violence cases seem to take longer than usual? Taylor’s is still pending after what seems like a year and this guy’s has been pending since July.

    Granted, I don’t personally know of anyone who has been charged with domestic violence, but things like DUI and such seem to be settled in what seems like a single month.
