No Edwards?

I’m hearing that Diablo Valley CC offensive lineman Donovan Edwards didn’t get the grades in order to attend UCLA, therefore there was a scholarship available for Kevin Prince.

    Scout reported that he committed today, while noting he still had some work to do before enrolling in the fall.

    So then why would he commit to UCLA over the weekend if he knew he was never going to get in? For publicity? Do you actually have knowledge of your statement being true, or are you just randomly spewing garbage out on the net yet again?

  • Buster Bruin

    Both Jill’s comment and the Bro article are correct. The Bro article notes that Edwards still has work to do in the classroom. That is why he is enrolled at his JC this summer. The scholarship offer which he accepted is contingent on him passing his coursework this summer.

    Give Jill a break. At least she isn’t an anti-Bruin like Dohn.

  • Quinn

    assuming he gets his grades up. How does this impact Prince’s commitment?

  • SCinHB

    Jill:

    Apparently you didn’t get the memo from BRO. This is the new era of UCLA Football and negative comments will not be tolerated.

  • VB

    Hey idiots, there was nothing erroneous about Jill’s post. Just because the guy committed to UCLA doesn’t mean that he has the grades to get in. BRO isn’t going to post his report card in their articles. He may commit, but won’t be admitted until he gets the grades.

    Give Jill a break.

    VB,

    At least Brian is usually very accurate on his information and he never reports on kids grades. Jill also said that his scholarship was given to Prince. That doesn’t sound good.

    How good do your grades need to be coming out of CC to qualify? Seriously, you don’t have to take the SAT’s or ACT’s and I think you only need a 2.0. How is he going to get by at UCLA?

  • bz

    so… what happens if he does pass his summer coursework? Will they need to dig up another scholarship for him?

    Jill… I love the blog, but it would be nice if you could give a little more detail in your posts. The one-liners create more questions than answers.

  • VB

    Dohn… pfffffff … I don’t how “accurate” you think his posts are, his hatred for UCLA is obvious when you read between the lines. Especially when you consider how he words things. In any case, everyone needs to give Jill a break and let her work. You assclowns are just sexist. Can’t handle getting sporting updates from a chick?

    VB is Jill Painters mom or stalker.

    It has nothing to do with her being a female. When Jill takes over I see alot of Volleyball, Track, Soccer type news. Dohn goes and tracks down the inside news we want to hear in sports we care about.

    And, the LA Times — the only paper in Los Angeles:

    This doesn’t affect Prince’s scholarship. He took a class today. He’s in. There would need to be more movement – ie, a transfer – for Edwards to receive a scholarship.

    VB:

    LMFAO. Oh the irony. HAHAHAHA. You call us sexist, then use the word Chick. HAHAHAHA. If you were on a women’s studies class you would have been mauled by now. HAHAHAHA.

  • Dijon Edwards

    This is Dijon Edwards, Donovan Edwards brother.

    This report is 1,500% False. Dont listen to it. Donovan has to get 2 B’s is summer school. Right now he’s working a C up to a B in English and he’s taking a Sociology pretty soon. I hate when reporters spew garabage on internet like this Jill Painter idiot. We are very outraged by this report and for now on Donovan will be taking a “no-comment” approach to every reporter. Donovan is a good student, but he’s human and he’s making up for some mistakes. If anyone wants the truth and not Painter, painting along her false fallacys then email me at Broncos56hitz@yahoo.com or BallTall42@yahoo.com. Thank you.

    Sincerely, Dijon

    Dijon,

    That is almost exactly what Jill posted. Namely he needs two B’s in summer school to get in to UCLA. What is false?

  • B-FISH

DONOVANS GONNA HANDLE HIS PART, HE’LL BE ELIGIBLE, HE’S IN CLASSES NOW TO FULLFILL THE REQUIREMENTS…UCLA GOTTA A GOOD PLAYER, TAKE MY WORD 4 IT.. P.S. NEVER TRUST THE NEDIA, ESPECIALLY A WOMAN REPORTING ON FOOTBALL(NO SEXISM INTENDED) I JUS FEEL LIKE MEN PLAY AND COACH IT….THEY SHOULD REPORT IT…

  • Anonymous

    hmmm….maybe men shouldn’t comment on woman reporters since they themselves have never been a woman reporter. I guess I should also not comment on B-Fish since I have never been a B-Fish myself.
