Citadel Suspends Offensive Lineman Who Tweeted About Intentionally Injuring Florida State Players
The Citadel went into Tallahassee on Saturday and managed to walk away within 25 points of the Seminoles. One rogue offensive lineman apparently accomplished one of his goals, though, so the trip wasn’t a total loss.
Victor Hill, a senior, made an incredibly weird choice when he decided to comment on an online newspaper story.
Hill posted his comment to an article on The Post and Courier website describing FSU coach Jimbo Fisher’s thoughts on the cut-blocking techniques used by the Bulldogs.
“I played in the game last night and also contributed to the injury list and that was just the mindset going into the game,” Hill wrote in his comment. “Me and my offensive line brothers preached to each other all week that we would be going for knees from the first play to the last play with the A-backs included. We saw it as if they (won’t) respect us for blocking them then we’ll make them respect us for cutting them!”
As you would suspect, people weren’t entirely pleased with those words. In fact, they’ve earned Hill an indefinite suspension.
Bulldogs coach Mike Houston said Hill … could return to the team “when he has successfully demonstrated that he can abide and live by the core values that should be demonstrated by any individuals who have the privilege to represent The Citadel and our football program.”
Newspaper comment sections, man. All these years and not a single success story. SMDH.
