    I'm guessing you can't follow a very simple timeline that most LT'ers can, and that's saying a lot!

    2013 - something happens at school. Dad gets pissed and believes Joe is involved. Rants on social media. Learns Joe is not involved. Forgets about it.

    2015 - Joe gets in trouble at OU.

    2016 - Media uncovers social media rant by dad. Not highly published but it's somewhat out there.

    2017 - weeks before the draft the rant is now front page news. Father at this time feels the need to go public to correct his mistake.

    Pretty ****ing simple to follow.

    Yeah...scouts were doing their investigation and this man was paid to recant....
    Nowhere did it say he just found out-it was never in the news before, now that it pops up 4 years later, he's setting the record straight--

    He's one of those who believes Mixon should have gotten a second chance, just not at a program like OU. Maybe Joe would have learned more of a lesson if he'd been sent to Austin and lost to Kansas.

    I'm simply using what the father said. I do not have to make up a timeline like you did. The fathers own words said that "“I have recently learned that a comment I made about Joe Mixon on social media a few years ago is now receiving a lot of attention. I want to explain that comment and clarify that I do not believe Joe ever did anything to hurt my daughter,” Hernandez wrote."

    A few years ago, he made the statement about Joe after Joe flattens Mia. This is a year after Joe allegedly belted this guys daughter. Over a year after the incident with his daughter he still believe Joe smacked his kid. According to the rest of his statement, just now, four years later, he allegedly investigated it and found it to be false.

    From what I've read, Steinbeck was a pretty tough cookie. I think he was America's greatest writer. It's weird...I re-read his books every 5 years or so and the past few years when I read them I hear the words in John Ford's voice. Showing my age, I guess....

    probably not as tough as hemingway, though. B^)

    as good a choice as any, and more prolific than most. i've read most of them. the only one i can't recommend is 'travels with charlie.'

    ... when I read them I hear the words in John Ford's voice.
    i can see that. the two are kinda related in setting and content.

    unless you consider the national book award and pulitzer prize fame worthy.

    he was already famous from his previous work, 'of mice and men.' burgess meredith starred.

    ford did make 'grapes' more famous. just like kazan made 'east of eden' more famous. and shouldn't we give props to henry fonda and james dean? let's not forget spencer tracy (tortilla flat) and nick nolte (cannery row). and steinbeck wrote the story of one of hitch****'s best (lifeboat). my favorite is 'winter of our discontent,' also made into a film.

    I've always wondered what Joe Mixon thought of Steinbeck.

    More good will come out of this than bad due to how both are handling it now that they are a few years wiser and both can and will be great role models for others. If every bad situation could end like this the world would be a better place.

    Kudos to both for resolving and reconciling what happened to learn from it.

    I've been greatly pleased with how she's handled this and grown from it. This sounds weird, but this horrible event in her life may have done her good. Maybe she ends up on the exact same path without it but she certainly wasn't on graduate school path when it happened.

    5 most likely landing spots

    Eagles: It takes a strong-minded ownership and a trust in coaching staff to believe that Mixon will put his past behind him and focus on being the productive pro rusher he has all the potenital to be. File this team there with Jeffery Lurie and Doug Pederson. The Eagles need a solid young early-down back, and if they can't get the one they really want in the middle of Round 1, they will have Mixon on their radar as a good fit in the offense a little later.

    Saints: New Orleans has done plenty of due dilligence on Mixon, including meeting him during his solid Sooners pro day and having him in for a pre-draft visit. GM Mickey Loomis even called the latter encounter "good." Now the question is, do the Saints really think he's a talented enough backfield alternative to Mark Ingram to gamble on him? Perhaps knowing more about him than any other NFL team during the process, they might have the comfort level to select him as high as No. 32, their second first-rounder.

    Lions: GM Bob Quinn stirred up some controversy at the Combine by saying Mixon should have been invited and declaring Detroit still had him on the board. The Lions have had a chance to examine the situation a lot more, but it's likely he's still there somewhere. Based on the Lions' early needs in the draft and with only eight overall picks, they would be more in play to roll the dice on Mixon in Round 3 (No. 85) or Round 4 (No. 127).

    Raiders: This is another later-round wild-card team for Mixon. Even if the trade to officially bring Marshawn Lynch out of retirement is executed during the draft, Oakland can't be ruled out to take Mixon because of Lynch turning 31 and that he can also be a good veteran mentor to Mixon. If the move for Lynch falls through, Mixon would shoot up to be considered as high as Round 2 (No. 56). The owner recently approved of the draft

    Chiefs: Kansas City took a far less publicized simliar risk with Tyreek Hill in last year's draft and it paid immediate big dividends with the dynamic receiver and return man. It also happens to be looking for a backfield replacement in the wake of releasing long-time feature back Jamaal Charles. Although the rumors of the Chiefs using No. 27 overall on Mixon seem to be a stretch, he can easily be in play for Round 2 (No. 59).

    Yeah I hope he can put this in his past. Especially since it was 3 years ago ... which equates to about a sixth of his entire life ago. Love how 'fresh' the media continues to make this. 3 years of not hitting women is a REALLY long time. If he were an alcoholic he'd have a dresser drawer full of abstinence metals. If he had cancer he'd be in remission, a survivor. He's cured of women striking.

    Put past behind him? I couldn't detect that it affected his on-field performance the last two years. He had one bad Texas game, and I doubt it was because of Pickelmans incident and aftermath. Other than that, he shined in almost every game.

    Lots of subterfuge being bandied about by local media of certain NFL franchises regarding Joe Mixon the closer the draft gets...I find it somewhat curious, if not humorous. The most recent 'explosive' narrative is that 6 teams have (allegedly) removed Mixon from their draft boards. Isn't it more appropriate to report that Joe potentially remains in play for 26 teams? The more enjoyable for me are the not so scarce self-righteous blogs and articles that reek of handwringing over someone once fallen, might actually improve on their lot in life and redeem themselves. I guess I didn't realize that sports journalism employed so many Saints.

    His negotiating leverage is highest when she thinks his value is lowest.

    I.e., undrafted guys don't make much....so she can't get much. She's in "take what you can get" land. . Helping him with damage control increases his value and gets him to agree to give her a cut.

    That's just my guess.
