Hyron Edwards

"Probably Going Too Purdue Tomorrow .... Who Gone Come See Me Were The Purdue Fans At" 


Hyron Edwards, a 5-foot-10-inch point guard from East Chicago Central, tweeted this earlier in the week regarding a potential visit to Purdue University.


The visit didn't happen. But what did happen was an insanely immature post by BoiledSports.com, and I thought I had to chime in.


How unprofessional can you be? Yes, I read the apology and respect the action of removing the post altogether but come on.  The kid is FIFTEEN. The kid is FIFTEEN ON TWITTER. Those two aspects should relieve the kid of any criticism from the start. 


I laugh at the people that say they still look forward to reading pieces by this Nikki person. You want to read articles written by someone that would say stuff like this? 


Like I said, this whole thing is just a joke. The people over of at BO should take a look at themselves and assess what kind of people they want contributing to their site. If someone posted that on my site they would get the boot right away. There is no place for that. I hope this person isn't pursuing a career in journalism.


That's my rant for the day.


I hope get this blog back up and running this summer as school has been a big barrier to its progress.
