I know I am getting cynical in my old age, because his explanation sounded just like a "canned" response to me. Very similar to the one Big Dex and others released about the Osterine Fiasco. I never saw where they "got to the bottom" of that situation either.
So many players get tagged for the PED violations, I do believe teams keep "canned" responses on tap for, as Foghorn Leghorn would say, "Just such an emergency."
And, although it is completely different circumstances, OJ Simpson is STILL out there searching for "The Real Killer". At least, that is what he said he would spend his life doing.
As a white man who attended an HBCU, I have learned so much about the pain inflicted on the African American community. I chose to change career paths at 50, hence the new degree. (I am getting into addiction medicine treatment.) Regardless of where my next degree comes from, my heart belongs to Clemson. I get razzed for wearing Clemson gear at times. That’s why I don’t get why Hopkins is so angry about being a Tiger. He was treated as an equal (from every report I have read) during his time at Clemson. Racism is real. It’s changed since I was a kid. We are closer to equality than ever. Unless you ask a democrat. (I’m not Republican or Democrat, I am Libertarian.) Maybe he bought into the false narrative that social Justice hasn’t begun? I just don’t get why he would be ashamed of being a Tiger. I’ve had a 42 year love affair with Clemson. I’d never hide the fact that I bleed orange and purple. All that said, I appreciate every voice on here. Whether that voice is negative or positive. Many I roll my eyes at and move on. Many contribute well. Just my two cents. Doesn’t mean I’m right or wrong. Just exercising my right of free speech. Which, the democrats are trying to take away. I usually stay out of political opinion. This board seemed the perfect one to voice my opinion. Go Tigers.
