07:21 AM ET 08.01 | Heading into fall practice, suspended Pitt freshman quarterback Tra'Von Chapman can't be sure what his future holds. [Chapman] quickly came to terms with a three-day jail sentence for attempted assault on a former girlfriend and hopes to rejoin his teammates next week, his high school coach said. "He was fine (about going to jail)," said John Nemec, the coach at Kent (Ohio) Theodore Roosevelt. ... Chapman's status with the Pitt football program remains uncertain. Although Nemec said Chapman hopes to rejoin his teammates Monday when they report to training camp, coach Paul Chryst, who suspended Chapman after the April 26 incident, had no comment Tuesday. Chapman could not take classes or work out with the team this summer.

Athletes are committing way too many assaults.

The NCAA should require all players complete a "conflict resolution" class. The same class people must pass if they want a concealed handgun license.

Maybe I'm taking it in the wrong context, but I don't care for the comment that the young man is fine about going to jail.

This is the type of a player that needs to be sent packing.

He is from Ohio what can you expect. But anyway the Pittsburgh Pirates have the best record in MLB.
