I get him and Spikes confused sometimes. Was thinking it was a slow 40, but I think Siler fell because of medicals. Spikes fell because of the 40.

Spikes was a second round pick, given his skill set I don’t think he really “fell”. Even before the over 5 second 40 time and sub 30 inch vert, everyone knew he was a tough thumper inside who didn’t offer too much else. He was great at his niche, but even those guys usually aren’t drafted in the first two rounds.

If anything, I was surprised we drafted him that early.

I can't believe he was still playing after that one story came out about him shooting some dude in his car in the head and then leaving him on the side of the road. That was crazier than the Marvin Harrison shit.

But that story wasnít public knowledge at all until after the Odin Lloyd murder and everything else came to light. Unless Iím mistaken, but I donít remember his name ever being publicly linked to it until shit hit the fan. Iím sure the Florida coaches knew something was up, but people like us didnít know he was a straight up psychopath.

At the time, guys like Spikes were sought after because it was peak 3-4 when good ILBs were sparse and he wasn't too much of a step down from McClain, who went #8 (speaking of crazy people).

I read it way before that. Maybe it was some niche story that ESPN just didn't bother picking up (the Marvin Harrison shit was the same way). The nuts part about it was it was directly from the guy he shot!

Urban himself got a lawyer for Hernandez after he broke a waiters skull with a sucker punch for not letting him drink at 17

Unreliable?

CT football is a pretty small pond.

I want a Barbara Walters expose from DJ. Give him immunity and hear his side. He had to know something about Aaron.

If anything they 'ignored' it on purpose. Proximity bias.

That shit's going to need to be a multi-part series like this Jordan one. From the Josh Portis recruitment BS and Urban sabotaging Chris Leak to the Tebow shit, Herandez, Pouncey's, et al.

I know he talked principals into letting kids graduate early and enroll in that BS community college so they could be eligible for UF
