Washington dismisses Jordan Polk from team

Washington announced on Friday that wide receiver Jordan Polk had been dismissed from the football team. While the Seattle Times reported on Friday that Steve Sarkisian told the paper Polk would not be participating in spring practice due to some "team issues we are dealing with," a little while later it became apparent that Sarkisian meant Polk was gone for good.

While Sarkisian said that the decision was made weeks ago, one can only wonder if this decision had something to do with Polk being charged in a domestic-violence incident, or whether it was just the final straw.
Former Washington football player Jordan Polk was charged Friday with a domestic-violence crime stemming from property damage he allegedly committed at the home of his ex-girlfriend in February.
The misdemeanor charge, punishable by up to a year in jail, was filed in Seattle Municipal Court by the City Attorney's Office.
Apparently Polk was jealous that his ex-girlfriend was celebrating her 21st birthday with her new boyfriend and not him. After failing to reach her by phone, Polk did the only logical thing he could do. He went to her place, forced his way inside, and then tried to break down the door to the room she was sleeping in.

Polk ends his Washington career with 16 catches for 191 yards in three seasons, and was expected to contend for a backup position this season.

Only in the Oregon state public school system would you not find Washington among the 50 states. I would agree that the UW-Oregon football games are a bigger rivalry than any other school in the conference.

Yeah that attempted decapitation of DT happened right in front of me. I had front row seats in the end zone for that game. I was yelling at Shart-queezian after that hit. Those Duck Husky games are brutal. I would have to say it is one of the most intense, state to state rivalry games in NCAA football. That is if you can call washington a state.

The Huskies are just plain dirty.  The game at Autzen this year, in which we overcame a slow first half to blow them out of the water.  The amount of late hits, horse-collar tackles, and overall cheap shots (See "Leading Off" in Sports Illustrated's November 15, 2010 Issues, where Huskie cornerback Quinton Richardson is litterally trying to rip the helmet off of Darron Thomas via the facemask, while falling on him from behind.  That play was called for a flag, but that pictures sums up the pure dirty play of the Huskies on that day.    Go Ducks 2011!

Big daddy,

How dare you come on here and call a spade a spade!?!?  Your're supposed to make excuses and tell them how they've been oppressed for 10,000 years and counting and it's the white man's fault!  I mean I'm sure that's what Lebron, Tiger, Oprah and Obama would tell ya!?!? LOL


GEAUX!

That's what I thought, too. No big loss with this Polk. Chris is going to be a beast, if he isn't there already.

All you have to do is look and see who BigFatty has for his team. He probably still thinks the Civil War is being waged. WELCOME TO THE 21st CENTURY, MORON.

**BigDaddy** made another "ghetto" type of remark on another story that I read this morning. Apparantly this person is having some personal issues he needs to deal with.
