Rick Stansbury dismissed D.J. Gardner from the Mississippi State basketball team on Friday. The development came a day after Stansbury announced the heralded freshman would redshirt, and less than 15 hours after Gardner publicly expressed his displeasure with the coaching staff via Twitter.

"These b***es tried to f**k me over," Gardner Tweeted late Thursday, according to a screen shot grabbed by the Clarion-Ledger's Brandon Marcello. "That’s y I red shirted .. But I wish my homies a great as* season.. I don’t even know y I’m still here"

Gardner is an in-state product who averaged 32 points and 10 rebounds as a high school senior.

He chose Mississippi State over Memphis.

I'd be pissed if I made my decision to accept a scholorship from a school based on a promise that was broken too.

If you went off telling people your boss did you wrong and lied to you and he found out about it, how long do you think you'd last at your job?  Can't cry "free speech" when bad mouthing the boss and expect to get away with it.

Sure we've all heard about Freedom of Speech...what concerns me more is the use of common sense.  What a dumb ass!!!

I love when people play the "Freedom of Speech" card............Mississippi played their "Freedom to revoke your scholorship" card.  Freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom from consequences.

Don't let the man keep you down DJ!!!  You have probably been the best player since you first picked up a basketball.......Welcome to the Real World.........I'm sure you are going to struggle.

CENATION-HLR:

"If they want to tweet just let them. Has anybody heard of a saying called FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

Guess not
They really cant do nothing about it.

I wouldn't pass it up if D.J Gardner files a lawsuit against Mississippi State."

Leave it to you to make a dumba$$ comment like this. All the First Amendment protects him from is being ARRESTED for his stupid comments. It has no bearing on any other part of his life. Go call your boss a dumba$$ and see if you get to keep your job based on Freedom of Speech. Idiot.

The next time we hear about this guy, it will probably be for armed robbery or drug dealing or beating up his girl. What a punk with absolutely no appreciation of what he was given, a free college education. It certainly seemed by reading his tweet that he could sure use the schooling. Hook em!
