No big deal. He wasn't that good anyway.

Who is the player? The link was removed.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

I thought he was considered a top prospect coming out of high school and was heavily recruited.

Either way, he's made a good choice if he didn't enjoy playing.

I always wondered why his name isn't Cordell Dogg.

Sons of rappers don't seem to be having a good year in the Pac-12, not just UCLA. Nate Dogg's kid from Bosco was dismissed from Washington last week.

In case anybody's wondering, here's the story:

The 6-foot-3, 186-pound Broadus was ranked as one of the top 30 wideouts in the class of 2015 by Rivals.com. Still, he never showed up for UCLA’s preseason camp, which began on Monday at Cal State San Bernardino.

“Cordell informed me yesterday that he has decided to pursue other passions in his life ‑ in particular his love of film through his company Film School Productions,” head coach Jim Mora said in a statement. “Cordell is an amazing young man with many talents, and we wish him nothing but the best as he continues to pursue his degree at UCLA.”

A male athlete in a marquee sports decides he wants to pursue an education instead of an extra curricular activity and it is newsworthy.

This only shows how out of whack big time college sports has become.

Your post was a comment that required the reader to click the link to see who or what you were talking about. It was a tease and a link. That's spam and it's against the rules. Not explaining what the topic is is also a very good way of creating a dead topic. People don't reply if they don't know what the post is about and the majority of them aren't going to go out of their way to find out. There are two stickies at the top of every forum that explain the policy - "Regarding 'empty' posts" and "Posting Guidelines". They've been there for two years.

My post included the Who, What, When, Where and Why. It was a direct quote from the Tribune's story so I included the link to give them credit and to let people read more if they wanted to. But my post included enough information that they didn't have to.

The reason I used the Tribune's story is only because I'd been reading their story about the Cabin Fire and I happened across the Broadus story, not because I have any problem with the site you linked to (sorry, I forgot which one it was) or because I have any preference for that paper. It just happened to be where I read it.

After watching the show documenting his senior year, recruitment and commitment to UCLA this doesn't surprise me in the least. The kids heart was never really in it. It was all about Snoop and how important this was whole thing was to him. Gee, that doesn't sound familiar does it? Snoop even admitted that without football he and Cordell don't have much in common and weren't really close. That is glaringly apparent in the show. And in the end the kid stuck it to his dad twice. First by committing to UCLA... And now, after all the hype and a full season of a reality show he hangs em before ever playing a practice snap on a college field. Good for him! Takes guts.
I guess Snoop Lion (I think that's what it is now) can take some solace in knowing he won't have to don the blue and gold on Saturdays.
Don't really think he was a PAC 12 caliber player but definitely more of a legit college prospect than Lil Diddy. Good luck to the kid, from the show he seems like a nice, family-oriented young man. Appears he takes after his mother.

Who knows? Since he is interested in film he might very well transfer to USC. Their film school is considered the best in the world.

The alums from that school are a who's who of entertainment professionals at every level in front of and behind the camera.

If he's smart enough to get into UCLA he's smart enough to know better. Besides, I heard that the film school library burned down and they lost both of their books .................Luca

Hmmmm...lol Luca. Now we now you were rejected from USC in general and the film school specifically. I guess looking through a camera that is up people's butts isn't quite the same as getting your name on a movie marquee. Cordell will see where your life ended up and realize he would be wise to transfer to a school with a great film school....Wabash

And now we "now" where you got your theoretical ejukashun. Do you know why Underachieving Students of California prefer SC to UCLA? Easier to spell.

You're thinking of a gastroenterologist. Still, that's better than having your head up your butt.
Speaking of which, your gastroenterologist called me the other day. He wanted to know if he should have a neuro trauma team on standby during your colonoscopy.........Luca

Off topic. Your envy continues to reveal itself.

Here's hoping Broadus doesn't make your mistakes. He can attend a great film school and maybe follow in the footsteps of George Lucas and Ron Howard. Or go to an okay film school and end up looking up peoples butts like Luca. If he's lucky he might be the next Francis Ford Coppola. Long odds to say the least. Especially when there is a sure thing just down the I-10....Wabash

Ah,yes. Scatological humor...... the last refuge of the witless and the SC educated (not to be redundant).

Do you know how one addresses the previous year"s valedictorian of SC's film school? "Oh, waiter, waiter........."

Although if you do graduate from the school at least you can keep your diploma in your front windshield so you can park in handicapped spaces.................Luca

Broadus would do wise to attend a great film school instead of spending a life looking up butts in anonymity. Trying to make himself feel superior by putting others down. So sad.....Wabash
