    Of course this is the first we are hearing about it. There is no AB-State College fan club to bring out the dirt.

    Misdemeanor assault. Still an issue. Was suspended back in June. Maybe unc could take a lesson from how to deal with this. Appears the girl is dropping changes.

  • NCMitch said,

    Suspended from football in June. Dropping the chrages. How convenient. How long do you think this would have remained hush hush if it were a UNC runningback? 2 days… 2 hours? Where was the media on this travesty? What other incidents have we not heard about?

    Hint: I’ll take the under on 2 months.

    I will admit it is not the fault of State College or the media that there is no “army of volunteers” tracking Pack players.
