The marketing team does a great job with the billboards then some fool screws up the social media posts...not sure why I am surprised.

    Depends on what year the BMW is lol
    2014. Not sure on the model. Police put the damage between 10k-25k. Good to see our guys are getting hooked up with some decent rides.

    you get the point Dale, why do something to bring a negative issue back to the front page?

    “Keep it in the news” is a tad dramatic. C’Bos original issue didn’t even make national waves much less this short lived FB post

    Which were both FU's without the accident.

    Difference between Floyd and C’bo was timing, Floyd got in trouble before spring and then was suspended for Spring ball. This happened after, that being said I doubt anything super harsh comes down.

    Hope you're right, but this is the same institution that gets a raging hard-on every chance it gets to impose self-sanctions.

    I can't take credit for this. From our Louisville Tailgate group text:

    IrishLion "BMW's are cheap on Facebook marketplace, and good for him. Take the misdemeanor instead of the DUI. That's Power 5-level awareness from the RB!

    ND to forfeit all 2020 games due to player being on Zima while team officials turned their heads.

    First of all, leaving the scene of an accident =/= hit and run. Not a great look necessarily but let's not get carried away. Is this his last year of eligibility?

    As far as his field play he's more than capable as a 3rd rb on an FBS team, and has earned what reps he's received. Runs hard. And I'm happy to have him as the guy to take a garbage time pounding to keep our #1 and #2 fresh in garage time.

    Hold up! I'm here to hype C'Bo.

    58 carries for 300 yds and 5 TD's is basically perfect 3rd back numbers when your QB's adding 500 yds too.

    5.2 yds per carry is something Jahmir Smith never sniffed.

    #FreeC'Bo!

    Everyone it was me hyping him up. When I saw him signal the first down while being held up by a couple o-linemen and smashed against some defenders, I couldn't help myself but hype him up. My apologies to the board.

    Would be an awful way to see his career with the Irish end if that ended up being the case.

    But I'm just thankful that it sounds like no one was hurt in the crash except his car. I'm interested to hear how this story shakes out.

    Nobody has ever overhyped C'Bo. Nobody. Ever.

I got mad love for players that play like that and I think most people agree. At no point have I seen a single poster say that he should play over Kyren or Tyree. As much as, we are excited when he gets in the game because his effort and passion is infectious.
    Also seems like he's got some of the "Armando Allen Disease," where he's always getting wrapped up by that last shoe-string tackle on the ankle that keeps him from hitting the big one lol.

    And that points to how strong he is; you rarely seem him going down in the pile, it's much more common for him to bounce off and fight through tacklers, to the point where he's dragging a defender forward that's hanging on to his legs for dear life.

    I swear I've seen people always ask why he doesn't get more carries when he's in because he breaks a tackle and to his credit it does runs hard. This slowed when Kyren took over. But to me Cbo's always been slow to the hole compared to others and doesn't have burst. To each his own.

    I haven't seen him hyped at all. Most I observed were thinking it was a meh type of commit. But I believe he has done well with the opportunities he has gotten. Hopefully this is just a little blip on the screen and lessons are learned.

    I have a hard time remembering anybody ever over-hyping Flemister.

    Just say you don't like the guy.

    I love this.

    "Seeing that C'Bo just crashed his vehicle and was charged with a crime, I'm going to take this opportunity to crap all over him as a football player."

    I really like C'Bo but i thought he played himself out of the 3rd spot in the BG game. Or at least, I thought he did nothing to strengthen his hold on the 3rd spot with the 2 freshman RBs coming in summer. Hope he gets his misdemeanor cleared up.

    They'll all be back next year.
    It's a great group of complimentary guys.

    One is just all around great, including blocking.
    One is electric, and still a pup that will get better and better.
    And the last one is a very mad, and very bad, dude that seems to have gone grown ass man over the off season.

    If it weren't for this Covid crap, I'd have a hat made with CBo Trucking on it for tailgating.
