Did he drop out of Dartmouth? I mean, I know the prospects for lawyers over the next decade are terrible, but damn, son. It's like Mannie Phresh trying to come back to the rap game or something. He was cool,…

I think he should've retired after being out-Juaned by Marquez for the first time. He may have been competitive but he took a hell of a beating.

Surprised he stayed away as long as he did... guess the lawyer thing isnt paying the bills.
