How many times have you heard his name since he was no longer a part of the team? I know it's a different situation with Mathieu and LSU but, just saying. Nick Saban is looking pretty good with that situation right about now...
Robby Green was an unfortunate situation. The guy was obviously talented. Some who never had real discipline sometimes don't take it seriously. I won't begin to speculate on his life, but I know New Orleans culture, and I will say I'd expect a. kid from Nola to be skeptical of authority over a kid from the country.
But I wish him the best and hope he does well in life. But he did a dumb thing that a young kid is more prone to do. I just don't think it's a good thing to point fingers at a kid like that. I can't remember exactly I read it, but it had something to do with casting stones. But I know he obviously Saban saw he had a good heart ( good character), and though he was a fool, he didn't pull a Rae Caruth.
Well said, mostly.

I met his parents, and while it was only a casual encounter they were extremely pleasant, clearly well educated, and were middle class in behavior. It's hard to know from only an hour or two, but they came across as people who would raise a polite, intelligent, thoughtful child.
Robbie may be all of those things still, while perhaps making a mistake that he couldn't overcome to Saban's liking. I don't know what that mistake was, because it's really none of my business.

considering Saban allowed him to come back for Pro Day, I think that speaks volumes about Robby.
