Peyton Ramsey liked winning at Purdue so much last year, he transferred to Northwestern so he could do it again. 

Gotta pull for Mr. Ramsey to knock off the Toiletmakers.

I am gratefully awaiting Indiana University Football again ! Hope nothing details this from actually happening. Heard on the radio that Eli Lilly has a drug in effect that shortens recovery time ! Let

I like Rittenburg and he’s a good writer, but talk to anyone in Iowa City and you’ll see there is more to the DJK story than was shown here. His dismissal and subsequent treatment by the program wasn’t unwarranted, and he’s not been especially contrite about what he did to earn his way out of town.

I don’t disagree with that. I don’t think he's the best source for this stuff, but there were a lot of things in that article that were corroborated by multiple people. He's far from the only one saying things either.

I think it was factual but it makes DJK much more sympathetic than he probably is. He was well known to be engaged in “illicit commerce” in Iowa City and his dismissal was related to multiple violations of that.

Ferentz didn't have a problem keeping him around for four years, it seems.  Strange thing to do if the kid was guilty of multiple violations.  Ferentz sounds like an old school a-hole, in my opinion.  I hope his program suffers for this and he ultimately is released.  Screw him.

When you’re a first round pick, it’s hard to blame him. Still sucks but I get it. 

Shew. I dont. At all. 

I almost posted last year when he had his hamstring injury that I could see him never playing at PU again.

I mean he’d still be playing if not for Covid IMO. But why risk millions of dollars in such an uncertain environment when he can possibly be the next Tyreek Hill.

Why not fulfill your duty as a teammate, first?

When you have the chance to make the kind of money he can make, I don’t know how anyone could blame him for doing what he’s doing. It’d be different if his draft status was in question. He was going to be a first rounder regardless of whether he played this year or not.

🤷‍♂️ I dont think he's a bad person or anything. 

But if I'm a teammate, nahh.. I dont support his decision at all. Either youre with us or not. He isn't.

FWIW my opinion on this has nothing to do with him being at Purdue. 

But all of you guys that are ok with this or support this... 

Why wouldnt David Bell sit out then too? Where is the line drawn at ok and not ok?

Agree to disagree. If I were his teammate, I’d be bummed but I’d understand and support his decision.

Bell can’t get drafted next year. If he wanted to sit out this year and play next year before leaving early for the draft, so be it.

Why not just sit them both out? If you support Moores decision you'd have to support Bells.

I do support both of their decisions. If Bell wants to sit out he can. Up to him. 

🤦‍♂️

I yearn for the Cal Ripkens of the world.

I can understand in this climate kids sitting out the year.  The time I can't tolerate it is when kids decide to sit out a bowl game.  To me you play the whole but sit out the final game is Not a good look.  If it were in charge of an NFL team I would be very leery of drafting those players.

I agree but sadly its not that way with kids any more. 2000 transfers every year, kids playing all season then sitting the bowl game you worked to get to.

So if you were Rondale, you’d 100% play this year? 

I would most definitely play.  I sure hope PU does not let him stay on scholarship so he can work out for the draft
