    I'm sure your future unit would be excited to hear this, or is that no longer a thing?

    I know you will argue with a telephone pole so this is probs a waste of brAUthe

    But why would Jovon lie if everything was on the "up and up"?

    And regardless of what you think it's messed up that he didn't make sure he was taken care of when they got back. Just common decency since he is essentially the reason MT got his A whipped.

    So even though he lied to Crime Dog about the situation he did nothing wrong in your opinion?


    Are you stupid or 12?

    I just think it's poor form to bag an early 20-something kid, and it be fueled by the mods here (who are grown ass men) by posting the knowingly inflammatory column, when said kid has been through more than most on here will ever know and has no voice here to defend himself.

    Then, you consider all the "behind the scenes" corrupt ish that goes on in our AD by "Auburn Men" under the pretenses of being "good Auburn Men" and it just seems shitty and ironic that the Bunker is gonna rag the kid.

    My two cents...

    What Jovon did was wrong, he made a mistake and should be disciplined. I still disagree with kicking him off the team.

    He was disciplined like 800 times and still didn't get it. He was given numerous chances and blew all of them.

    Sounds like typical behavior issues of troubled young men. Surely we researched his behavior and character before we begged him to play football for us. If his character wasn't a problem before, why now? Let's be honest, if JR was an all-American athlete, he would not have gotten dismissed for this.

    Maybe he's good at putting on a front. Either way, auburn football isn't juvie hall or a counseling center. Shape up or ship out.

    I wonder what we would have done if Cam Newton had done something similar AND gotten arrested. I'm sure we would have bailed him out of jail and begged the NCAA to not prohibit him from playing. Jovon did not have to be dismissed.

    Considering it was under a different coaching regime AND cam never did any of that, I don't find that to be a valid comparison. We all saw what duke Williams did to the team. Jovon is duke 2.0.

    The way I heard it was he has a right to be because of what happened to his dad and his mental disorder. He's just misunderstood and he's got to be true to himself. Pfft.

    But he was an All-American athlete in terms of ability. Never could act right long enough to prove it. No one owes him anything at this point.

    My point is on field performance changes how this problem would have been handled. I just find it hard to believe Cam or Bo would have been dismissed for what JR did.

    Simple, guilty by association. I am curious to why as soon as he gets to Auburn the wheels came off. Either the coaches at his JUCO kept everything under wraps or he actually kept his nose clean (the head coach who brought him off the scrap heap may have had some repoire and trust with Jovon). A lot of idioms in there.

    this is the truth right here. Jovon left a man to die because he didn't want to face consequences. That is disloyal, immoral, and ****ed up. Jovon deserves whats coming to him in life because this right here is an extremely cowardly low life thing to do. I understand where he is coming from feeling different than other folks and wanting to make his own path but this is the opposite of doing that. This is being a shitbag from the word go. Guy deserves every bit of what he gets for this action alone. What a coward.

    Cam or Bo would have never been in this situation to begin with which is why they are legends and jovon will work at walmart.

    Cam got in trouble at Florida. You think Florida would have dismissed Tebow for what Cam did?

    Damn now liger is getting a run for his money on how dumb someone can be. Jovon wouldn't have gotten kicked off had he did what cam did. Leaving a guy unconscious is a little more serious. Especially when you consider this was about jovons 5th chance already. Stop being an idiot

    I didn't read this overlong thread for obvious reasons, but I'll make two brief observations:

    1. Nothing good happens to our players when they leave Auburn to TCOB.

    2. Getting into a fight is almost always mutual. Leaving a friend is unilateral, cowardly and totally unacceptable.

    If he toted him out unconscious he didn't leave him. Also I thought the bunker ladies gossip club swore Javon beat up Taylor.

    Duke Williams got angry at Sky Bar, in his anger he knocked Xavier Dampeer in the jaw, breaking it. Shon stepped in and tossed Duke Williams around like a rag doll putting him in his place.

    Considering they were in Taylor's car he had no choice but to bring him back, by leaving him unconscious and denying it he proves that he is a coward and a POS.

    Regardless of everything else in this instance he lied to the coaches, and it apparently was not the first time, so was he to be given an ice team cone?

    El oh el at Gus haters taking up for this POS. Yea, he has been thru a lot but you can only give him so many chances until you realize he's a POS. Blame his upbringing all you want but the result is still the same.

    This was bound to happen sooner or and probably won;'t be the last incident involving Jovon. He has a big problem with authority figures, boundaries and anger control all of which point to more trouble. It's really sad that he has the talent that he has which properly handled, could mean wealth and a nice life for the guy. Instead, he may waste it and wind up in prison for life or worse. I wonder if part of our athletic program could or should include a course or courses in anger management and behavior modification. it sure seems that many of them today could benefit from such and help them at the same time.
