Breaking news


It was announced in mid-broadcast on Monday night and so little was made of it, which we don't understand here at TSF. Future star defensive end William Wall was dismissed from the team. When he didn't make the trip to UNC, we figured this was his freshman moment and he would learn from it and move on. Apparently he did not. He still has many years to get his life in order and we wish him the best, but talk about throwing away an opportunity. William Wall could have been the leader of this defensive line in 2007.

And that's the irony of all this "me-first" attitude where players think they are looking out for their NFL careers. With the litany of defensive line players that have left Tech and gone on to the NFL, William Wall could have continued that tradition by simply being a TEAM-first guy. He had the talent to become a star at a bigtime college program. Now he will end up at Division I-AA school and severely hurt his chances of being a top pick in the draft several years down the line. Hopefully this serves as a solid example for the remaining players on the team. We'll keep you posted as further developments occur.

I don't think I've ever used the word flabbergasted before, but its the only adjective that comes to mind right now. Wall could have been great.
