I understand what your saying, but personally it should not matter what he did he has had more than enough chances to know what to do and what not to do. I really do not care if its as simple as him stubbing his toe on the desk and yelling out F*&* in the classroom I am tired of seeing his name followed by suspended.
Coached this kid as a sophomore in high school. Hate it. Have always pulled for him. He's not a bad kid, just can't always think past the next 5 mins. Hopefully it's something minor that requires a 1-game suspension. He needs football way more than y'all need him. Good luck this season.
Not to call out anyone on this board but following TOS before I joined here a lot of people were calling for his head after the Kentucky game saying him and Bray didn't want to go to a second tier or third tier bowl game so the didn't show up to play. Give it a couple months and everyone loves him again, now it's our season is going to be shot because of one player.
Dooley has a team this year with actual experience. None of us know what that team will look like until we play NCState in a week. I'm not going to hang this season on one player. While he may be an exceptional receiver, he at times has also been a cancer to the team. It's hard for Dooley to build team chemistry and unity with one player that is constantly causing problems.
If Vegas had lines on whether or not players would be with their respective teams by the end of the year, I would suspect the payout wouldn't be to high if you bet on Da'Rick.
I'm not shocked at all, disappointed, yes. This probably should change my outlook on the season, but it doesn't. I think Dooley and his staff are smart enough to plan for the future, and as a coach I'm hoping he also knew it was a possibility that Da'Rick might miss a couple games this year because of his past/present issues.
looks like we are going to have to rely on the running game even more.. we will be okay we have some depth.. and who knows he might not be gone that long.. like someone else said we have better depth and we have CP..
If this was bound to happen it's at least better that it happened now vs next week. They can at least plug in the next guy and get him a weeks worth of game prep. This is the deepest position on the team. I just hate it that we won't get to see the top three on the field at the same time to see what it could have been!
True, and I believe the consensus for a lot of folks is they were betting he would not suit up for NC State a long time ago.

I hate to say it but one person cannot be bigger than the team. I understand he is a great talent but if CDD keeps letting him get away with this crap the integrity of what he is trying to build will be lost. I think he have player(s) to fill the void don't know that one can unless CP is the real deal. The other BIG thing right now is we must stay healthy to compete. See you guys in Atl.

I do believe he is a good kid deep down and I have seen it happen many times don't know how you can teach kids to think long term. I am with you and hope it is something minor but at some point a bunch of minors turns into a major. I just hope for him that he can get it together he is a huge talent and obviously we need him in uniform this year but it pains me to see kids with such great talent waste it.
I just don't think he believes this^^
