    Well, the kid could still get a scholarship and walk on. But that would require spending a little more time at the books and a little less time on Twitter.

    Twitter didn't cost the kid a scholarship. The kid cost himself a high school diploma. Most likely he'll wind up with a scholarship. If he can help a team win, a team will sign him.
  5. If newspapers hadn't propped up Twitter in the first place...

    Sorry for not providing comment. My take on it is he shouldn't have had Michigan pull their schollie from him, but that's just me. It's a free speech thing.

    Michigan can do whatever the hell it wants. You have no understanding of free speech.

    Yes, if you think he doesn't end up with a big program on a full scholarship, you've been living in a cave for about five years.

    I haven't been in a cave lately, but I've got think that if the college that takes Yuri Wright has any kind of self-respecting press corps, the school will have to answer some hard-edged questions about the young man.
