Rutgers dismisses Philip Nelson - Tuesday, May 13, 2014 12:10 PM

Rutgers has dismissed quarterback Philip Nelson from its football program, the school announced Tuesday.
Nelson has been charged with one count of first-degree assault and one count of third-degree assault for allegedly kicking 24-year-old Isaac Kolstad in the head during an altercation this weekend in downtown Mankato, Minnesota, leaving Kolstad gravely injured.
Nelson was a top recruit when he came out of Mankato West as the state's Mr. Football in 2011, and he spent much of his first two seasons at Minnesota as the Golden Gophers' starter. He played in 11 games last season but announced afterward that he would transfer to Rutgers and what he said was a more pass-friendly offense. He threw for 1,306 yards, nine touchdowns and six interceptions last season and ran for 364 yards.
Rutgers is fitting right in :(

Nelson is saying he doesn't even remember kicking the kid...he probably ruined his life in a matter of 5-10 seconds.

Go Blue!!

In real life people throw their lives away that fast everyday. Sad to see. I remember responding to a very serious car crash, where a young kid prob 20ish t boned a car as he was drunk and traveling well over 100mph in his camaro. The family in the car parrished as the mother in the drivers seat was airlifted to trauma ctr. We responded third unit in. We transported the heavily intoxicated young man to the hospital with minor injuries. All I could think is when he wakes up in the am and hears what he did. I just can't imagine.
It was an impressive achievement, of course, and a human achievement by the members of the IBM team, but Deep Blue was only intelligent the way your programmable alarm clock is intelligent.. -Kasparov

Rutgers isn't fitting in.  If they were trying to fit in they would suspend him for a half.  lulz
