Maurice Washington Faces Charges

Recommended Posts

I'm always for people getting the opportunity to right wrongs of the past and better themselves.  Kudos to Scott for trying.  I think this also sends a strong message to current and future players that he won't give up on an individual easily.  I have a college age son who has made mistakes - not to this level but punishable none the less.  I think most college kids do, especially their first year there.  My son was given a second chance and is about to graduate near the top of his class.  I'm very grateful that he was given the opportunity to show that he could change for the better.  I genuinely hope MW does the same.

Really look at this...

1.  Worked his a$$ off to get here and did it

2.  Smoked/had weed (literally no one cares)

3.  Had a pic/video of an old GF that was naked or making love 

4.  Was mad/upset that he didn't get the ball more

 

Assuming that is everything...well...it is not really a big deal.  (All you SJW's relax on the child porn stuff, we all know that is not what it really is)

 

Every guy on the team that is not starting and/or getting TONS of play is mad (that is how it works)

They all smoke weed/drink (All you stat geeks, please realize I know that not ALL OF THEM smoke and drink)

 

I think you sit him down and you yell at him, kids like him respond to that, you say "You are a moron, you know that, right?" and he will agree, and then you ask "Do you want to be here, for real, do you want to be part of this or do you think you would be better leaving" he will be honest...if he says "yes" you say "Tell me what boundaries you need..." and he will say "I don't know"

 

Then you say..."Here is what I propose..." and you lay it out.

 

Down playing that one quite a bit...  pretty sure it wasn't the possession of the video as much as it was the sending part...

Finally, a rational and thoughtful opinion on this situation.  Thank you!

My freshmen year of college was...

 

Academic probation

puking in my dorm room off some Mad Dog 20/20

Sneaking in beers/booze to my dorm

Drinking at my frat

Skipping classes

 

I think most of us can relate.

I sort of feel like that might have made a lot more noise...

Maybe he did it in the basement of the Cornhusker.  

 

That place is a blackhole when it comes to information getting out...

Who hasn't puked in their dorm room thanks to the Mad Dog.  I'm certain it happened more than once with a couple of us.  That stuff was awful and I probably had 30 empty bottles stashed in my dorm closet, made many trips the end of the semester clinking bottles in a duffle to get rid of em.

If I was the coach, he'd have to plead, beg and promise the moon (and make me believe it) to get me to even consider letting him back on the team, especially after the class we just recruited. And yeah, I too did a lot of dumb things in college but it didn't hurt other people and I didn't have teammates depending on me. Any of these things on their own is not the deal breaker but rather that he should've already known before the last few issues that he was out of chances. I don't even care about the charges in California but to have that hanging over your head and then do the sh#t he did, well that is not a good teammate and not the type of guy I would want around my team. Frost will probably be a little more open minded than me, so maybe he'll get one final chance.

Sneaking them in and out was half the fun!

My roommate left his in the dorm, we both got charged a cleaning fee because he was too lazy to sneak the bottles out.  He still owes me money for that cleaning fee haha.

I’d RS him next yr with clear path to rejoin the following yr.  he’d have to stay clean, like I’d watch the kid pee in a cup.  Support his teammates by being scout team/good leader, attend all classes/good grades, make amends with the team, absolutely no legal trouble at all.  If he did all this for a yr and the team accepted him back fully, I’d let him know he’d have the opportunity to compete for time but that playing time would have to be earned not guaranteed.  His choice to walk or not and accept those terms

Getting kids to understand the concept of Consequences is a constant and baffling venture. 

 

But when they point to adults of the highest order having the same issues and seemingly getting away with it, it kinda shuts you up.

I really don't think it is more that they just don't think they will get caught.

 

Like, we all speed when we drive, we all know the consequences, but we still do it.  Why?
