Not Another Pink Hat (4-21)

According to the Boston Herald, Boston College’s star defensive end, Brady Smith, was charged with sexual assault and breaking and entering that occurred early Saturday morning. The 20-year-old junior started 12 games last year, contributing to the team’s impressive 11-3 season. He has been issued a summary suspension from the university and has been indefinitely suspended from the Eagles football team. Smith was attending BC on a football scholarship.

My take: Well, first of all, Smith has not been tried, so in the good old US of A, he is innocent until proven guilty. However, for the sake of this post I’m going to assume he’s guilty anyway. I’m not even going to bother mentioning the fact that sexual assault is bad and disgusting. I’ll just assume everyone reading this already knows that and agrees. The one thing I can say is that I really hate people like this. I know a lot of really smart people who applied to BC, but didn’t get in. I know others who did get in, but couldn’t go because they couldn’t afford it. It makes me so mad that someone like this is taking the place of smart, productive, non-criminals. I just hope that the same people who handed him a scholarship don’t hand him a verdict of not guilty.

  1. Ouch. It seems to be growing difficulty for young sports stars to stay out of trouble these days…How difficult can it be??

  2. Pretty hard seeing how many young athletes get into trouble.
