DE Chase Young (Nagurski, Hendricks, Bednarik, Silver Football, All-American, Washington Redskins)

    Zurp I have misplaced my pants.

    So Tua (or someone else) wins the Heisman. How many voters come out later and say that they would have put Chase Young #1 if he hadn't been suspended those two games?

    That Chase Young tweeted about this at all is puzzling. He's had a LOOOONG talk with Day and Smith (at least) by now about what happened.

    How can they NOT have told him to keep his mouth shut and the tOSU sort it out in public? Or they somehow approved his tweet?

    It's strange to see ANY info is coming from Chase, much less an admission of wrong, because he's got zero to gain.

    Seriously, how can they not have stressed to Chase to not say anything?

    I'm pretty sure Young said the loan was accepted the summer before his freshman year at OSU.

    He said he met him the summer before but took the loan last year.

    Oops, you're right. I read it wrong. Sorry, @MililaniBuckeye

    Abenaki Ohio against the world.

    At the very least his lawyer approved the tweet (and/or drafted the message). I find it unlikely they did so without the knowledge of the compliance team.

    The weird thing is why? Why say a word beyond: I'm sorry, I let the team down, my family, etc.... ????

    It's like someone let this kid put his toes under the bus. A responsible attorney wouldn't suggest that, nor should representatives of tOSU.

    I can't imagine what the strategy is with that tweet.

    Not sure I buy the PFT article about an unnamed league source saying it's an agent. Would Chase really try to play it off as a family friend if it was an agent?

    It sets the tone of the story. Not nearly as many people who aren't OSU fans are jumping up to support Young and rally against the NCAA if you sit quiet and don't have a narrative. Whether there is more to it or people believe it is another thing, but I think it did help his case.

    Chase Young, attorney shed light on Ohio State DE's suspension

    Tim Nevius, Young's attorney, later confirmed the defensive end's remarks in a Twitter post of his own, in which Nevius criticized the NCAA "punishing athletes to make ends meet."

    "Chase took a small loan from a close family friend last year to cover basic life expenses," Nevius wrote. "Toan was repaid months ago and we’re working to restore his eligibility. Unfair and outdated NCAA rules punish athletes for making ends meet while enriching everyone else."

    Quick, someone find out if there are any agents named Toan.

    If it's this black and white, what's the penalty? Student athletes can't take any loans from anyone? I don't understand what the violation even is?
