Time is ticking for Wendell Smallwood

The West Virginia running back will be extradited to Wilmington, Delaware, today, where he’ll be charged with an act of intimidation for allegedly threatening a witness to a 2012 murder. He faces a maximum of two years in prison.

This, it seems, is not his first brush with the law.

Where things here go from there is yet unknown, but Dana Holgorsen has sat quietly for a few days now, monitoring the situation and waiting to “take action at the appropriate time,” as he said. That time is coming. Nothing has really changed from Monday until now, but a felony charge for a rather unbecoming act is officially something and it would be inconsistent with Holgorsen’s past decisions to let that happen without action.

    In happier football news, WVU got Kiffin’s 7th-grader:

    I guess it’s him v. Crest.

    Think it time for Holgorsen to suspend him from the team. Can always reinstate him if found innocent.

    Holgorsen doesn’t need to do anything. Smallwood won’t be suiting up for the Alabama game. If the allegations are true, the matter will be out of Holgorsen’s hands.

    Need to do and appropriate to do are 2 different things. It is appropriate for Holgersen to suspend him at this point. Though, if charges happen to be dropped later, the suspension could always be lifted.
