Deondre Francois Dismissed from FSU

Recommended Posts

"Last night, I informed Deondre Francois that he is no longer a member of the Florida State football program," head coach Willie Taggart said in a statement. "As we build a new culture and foundation for FSU Football, we have high expectations for all of our student-athletes and we will not shy away from those high standards of conduct. We are moving forward as a program."

In all seriousness, I hope this is the best thing that ever happens for this young man and a dose of humble pie allows him to focus on being a better person, not just a better football player.  Sometimes we kid ourselves thinking college and/or a pro football career is what kids really need...as if the experience will somehow magically change them.  

Either requires tremendous discipline and some kids are grossly ill-equipped, lacking the tools to allow them to succeed.    For such kids, college can be a recipe for disaster.  We've all seen it.   Some need love and mentorship much more than money and fame...and they may get neither of the former in college.  I have learned first-hand that turning one's life completely around for the better often takes one's complete focus, and most kids cannot do that while juggling the demands of studies, practice, and social distractions at college.

Man that crab story was the dumbest story that I've ever seen, in most major college towns a QB is usually handed free stuff when they want it anyway so this was just a person making a childish decision to steal crab legs that the store probably would have handed him for free had he simply asked LMAO

The plot thickens

 

Some  women have a habit of retracting their statements when things involve LEO, or in this case dismissal. It does not mean she was not abused. And, don't get me wrong, not being familiar with the situation, I am not saying she was, just that the retraction does not necessarily mean she was not.

The best thing Deandre can do is move on with his life. He should take some time to reflect and after that see if he can find a spot elsewhere. But if his football days are over, then he needs to make sound plans for the rest of his life.

I first saw him play his sophomore season when he started for Olympia. While he impressed me some, I was never sold on him as a QB. That said, I am sorry his situation has spiraled downward.

Ezekiel 5:15

15 So it shall be a reproach and a taunt, an instruction and an astonishment unto the nations that are round about thee, when I shall execute judgments in thee in anger and in fury and in furious rebukes. I the Lord have spoken it.

1. Doesn't matter he clearly was on that video and clearly made threatening statements towards her regardless if she did set him up.

2. Soon after her sister (allegedly) recanted that and said her account was hacked.

3. This is like a Tyler Perry Movie.  Glad he is gone honeslty.

I agree with Every comment you made including the Olympia one... In which we may have caught one or 2 of them together.
