When Freddie Maggard and I were leaving Commonwealth Stadium, we could not recall if we saw Junior defensive end Jason Hatcher. Normally his vocal presence is impossible to ignore, and his coaches are quick to praise him. Yet, the only mention of Hatcher was this brief statement from D.J. Eliot, “Jason just needs to take it one day at a time and continue to work on the fine things and the fundamentals.”
It turns out that one of those “fine things” was his school work. After rumors of suspension began swirling, we are happy to report that Hatcher is NOT suspended. He missed this morning to straighten things up academically in order to make practice this afternoon.
It’s safe to exhale BBN.
