    I hope Mike Williams gets reinstated

    He was just chasing the dream we all wish we had. Then when the court system screwed him, not necessarily Clarett, the NCAA committee should let him back in.

    Thought I read somewhere that he would be allowed to return. If there has not been a decision, then I agree, the NCAA should let him return.

    Tx, just curious what you mean by "the court system screwed him."

    The court ruled against clarett in a decision that was predicted by nearly every legal expert. the decision to overule the lower court was highly likely at the time that williams made his decision to come out. I am not necessarily disagreeing with the ability to reinstate him, but i think he took his chances with the court ruling and lost. I dont see how he got "screwed."

    Re: I hope Mike Williams gets reinstated

    I'm undecided on this. It seemed obvious to me that whenever Williams announced he was coming out for the draft, the NFL was planning to or was in the process of appealing the ruling allowing players like him into the draft. Unless Williams was guaranteed that he'd be able to enter the NFL (at which point I'd say let him back in the NCAA), then he was taking a risk by declaring and obviously it didn't work out for him. But that was his risk to take. I just don't know.
