Walter Hill Dismissed

I have no idea what happened. Maybe Hill had serious enough injuries (broken hand and then broken bone in his foot) that he got discouraged and stopped going to class.

I will say this, I'm glad that if Hill couldn't adjust to college well, that it happened while playing for Richt, rather than Felton. Can you imagine what would have happened if Hill had honored his commitment to basketball, and then not done things "the Georgia way?" Folks who never follow the basketball team would have suddenly become energized and post on "these are Felton's recruits."

Since Hill is a Richt recruit, his dismissal doesn't matter as much to the average Dawg fan, despite the fact that Donovan Baldwin also was escorted from the football program on the same day, and in spite of the fact that there have been a lot of very serious off-field issues involving football players this year.

There's a double standard here somewhere, but I'll let it go.

I hope Hill gets it all together and plays some sport somewhere. I still believe it was a mistake for him to choose football over basketball. We all have to make our choices, whatever they are, and live with them, hopefully growing to be a better person in the end.
