The lucky thing here is how great our top 4 are playing at the moment, and that Izzard is back. Fingers crossed now that we stay healthy

If CJF is not saying anything why, you know it's academics or personal conduct/behavior. If Vilbert is guilty of either, he shouldn't be here. Accordingly, no loss.

That's dumb. Beamon was in the same situation last season, paid his time, and has really been a great infusion into the starting lineup so far.

We don't have a no mistake policy, these are 18 to 23 year old kids. Out of 100+ a few will make recoverable mistakes and be welcomed back with open arms. It's called learning and growing.

With all the tutors and academic help the football players have access to it's pretty sad when one lets that go over the line to cost them football participation.

SV seems to have really developed physically and would have been a stout DE to line up against the more physical teams remaining on the schedule. Hope he gets his focus and comes back strong for PSU in 2023......

How big of a loss is this?

It's not a quantifiable loss because he hasn't played very much, but with our graduates at the position he was a depth player with multiple years in the program that could have stepped up and made a difference.

It seems that our current rotation involves Tarburton, Issac, Chop, Vanover, and DDS. I think Vilbert would have made this group a 6 man rotation.

Did Joe get rid of everyone or have them clean the stadium?
