“Yeah, it kind of stung a little bit sticking up for him,” Lynch said. “But I don’t retract any of the statements I made. Everything I said was true. He worked very hard up to that point. He was showing signs of improvement and I was excited for the opportunity he had this season. Unfortunately that opportunity is going to be somewhere else.”Artie Lynch was a good Crowell barometer for everyone following the running back's development. He commented openly about the kid's lack of motivation his freshman year and didn't mince words regarding his feelings about the former Carver star.
So it took a little swallowing of the pride for Lynch to make those supportive comments. No doubt a lot of fans feel the same as Lynch after the East Campus Road Block arrest.
