You may remember the mini-controversy a few weeks back when a couple idiot UK fans took some of their clearly boring lives to criticize Darius Miller for his language on Twitter. So understand that I do not post this to be critical of this language or think that UL fans should be embarrassed by this kind of talk. People curse at a much higher level today than they did 20 or 50 or 195 years ago. Deal with it.
But, take a look at some recent Twitter activity from prized UL recruit (who can’t seem to make it to campus) Demar Dorsey. This is the same Dorsey who was going to go to Michigan, but the school would not allow because his criminal record and transcripts were not what you would call “college material”. Anyway, he eventually committed to Louisville, but has yet to join the team, and it’s got UL fans all in a frenzy because he would be their top recruit if he ever makes it before committing another crime.
So, let’s set the scene first. Some of the language in Dorsey’s tweets I can not put on this site. But, trust me when I tell you this: THE SPELLING IS EXACTLY HOW DORSEY PUT IT. I have not altered his tweets in anyway except to blurt out some cursing. Ok, let’s get to it:
5:01PM: ME AND MY NI**A @Campbell_Jordan GONNA TEAR SOME HEADS OFF! HOW PRACTICE GO WILD THANNGG??? LOL.
20 hours ago: SKOOL TOMORROW N DA VILLE…SMH…LET ME N AND I’LL DO DA DAMN THING, NO PROBLEMS ON DIS SIDE….TRUST ME ON DAT REAL TALK (BTI Editorial: No problems except for basic english skills)
20 hours ago: PEOPLE TRY AN ACT LIKE WAT U DO N GRADE SKOOL IS HOW U GONNA B AS A MAN…NAW FUC* DAT NOISE!! IMA PROVE EVERY 1 WRONG WHEN I GET DAT CHANCE
20 hours ago: WETHER IT B HURR OR THUR IMA DO THA DAMN THING AND AINT NOBODY STOPPIN MY A** FROM KILLIN SOME NI**AS ON DA GRIDIRON. IMA CLOSE DIS OUT NOW.
20 hours ago: AND DON’T SAY DEMAR U SAID DIS OR DAT…NAW IMA PROVE IT WEN AND WUR I GET A MUFU**IN CHANCE NI**A…IT B N DA VILLE THO KILLIN CATS BRAH.
OK, so at this point we know that Demar is going to school in Louisville, hopefully some sort of English class and that he is misperceived. But if given the chance, he will kill some guys on the field, and hopefully avoid doing it off the field (NOT A GIVEN!!). Hey, whatever you want to think Demar. But then 16 hours after that last tweet came this tweet (3 parts) from the Demar Dorsey account.
3 hours ago: I would like to apologize for my tweets last night, my emotions and anger got the better of me and that is not what I want people to think when they think of Demar Dorsey. Hopefully I didn’t offend anyone but if I did I regret it and I am sorry! All Cardinal fans, don’t worry about me being a distraction, I’m here to play ball and learn from Coach and my teachers. May god bless everyone and have a great day. Go Cards!
So, is there a single soul on the face of the Earth over the age of 7 who actually thinks the tweets above in caps, and the one in italics are written by the same person? The same person who doesn’t know how to spell school and use the n-word an absurd amount of times. The same person who wants to “murder” people on the field. The same person who says nobody is “gonna stop my a**” is now saying god bless to people and hoping they have a nice day.
Uh, NO! Personally, I am all for a school completely banning it’s athletes from using twitter or facebook. Too much bad can come from that, especially in big programs like UK and UL. But, for a school to CLEARLY write a tweet under the disguise of a player because they are embarrassed by what that same player has previously said is pretty sad.
