Louisville Cornerback Announces Transfer in Twitter Tirade

The curious case of Alphonso Carter has come to a close at the University of Louisville.  The junior college transfer arrived on campus as wide receiver Paul Harris.  The former Tennessee and JUCO wide receiver changed his name to Alphonso Carter and his position to cornerback.  Now, he’s changing his school, again.

He announced his decision in this bizarre series of Tweets.

He then released his measurables, along with a few highlight videos from his two years at Louisville.  Then, he threw his middle fingers up at Petrino on his way out the door.

The Tweets can be viewed many ways.  I see it as a great PR move by Harris/Carter.  After being pulled over with a loaded gun in December, he was suspended by Petrino in February.  Shortly after the suspension, Carter plead guilty to carrying a concealed deadly weapon without a permit.

Carter could’ve been asked by Petrino to leave because of his legal troubles, or you can believe Carter’s version of the story.  Either way, we can all agree this is strange.

    Oh Oh, 502CodeRed, still suffering with obsessive envy compounded by metaphorical castration anxiety, will soon be here to lecture us on obsession.

    LOL at the possibility that Petrino would boot a kid because of legal troubles. Legal troubles are so far down the list of reasons Petrino would take a kid’s scholarship that he probably doesn’t even remember that issue.

    Seems far from a tirade

    I thought they encouraged that stuff. He was just trying to fit in with teammates.

    He is upset because he did not get a participation ring? I would be too. “Ls ” down on that one.

    I react to this story the same way I do when Duke plays UNC. Does anyone really have to come out the winner in this dispute? As the Bard once wrote, “A plague on both your houses!”

    Tirade?? Lol. Another awful article and terrible coverage we’ve come to expect from ksr. I wonder what the article would say if Petrino had kept the guy with a gun charge that he hid from the coaching staff

      But leave it to Petrino to drop the kid NOT for legal troubles, but for performance issues…
