If you been watching season 3 of Last Chance U on Netflix,  you have been overly confronted with a particular term.  No,  it’s not the F-word that head coach Jason Brown is most certainly married to.  It’s the term “D-1 Bounceback”.  What’s a D1 bounceback and how are they taking over college football?  We’ll discuss it in this article.

What’s a D1 bounceback?  The general definition is a prospect that was once at a higher level Division I football program and for any number of reasons had to leave and is at a smaller program,  usually a junior college looking to seek an opportunity at another college football program.  My definition is a prospect, who despite all the talent in the World, has failed to take personal responsibility and accountability for their actions thus ruining a grand opportunity at a high profile university and is seeking a chance to go to another program where the coaching staff will treat them better.  Rather long winded isn’t it?  Harsh isn’t it?  You know I’m right don’t you?

Ever have a bad day?  How about a bad moment?  Well in this day in age,  it only takes one small moment for people to make whole judgements and there’s no better place for that to happen than on the judgmental land we’ve come to know as Twitter.

Sunday morning,  video of a 1-on-1 rep at Nebraska’s Friday Night Lights between a defensive back and a wide receiver sent football twitter into a tizzy. The defensive back in that rep was 3-star Illinois defensive back Tyrik Henderson.  In the video clip which you can view below,  Henderson gets really aggressive with a camper at the line of scrimmage.  In the process, he ends up holding and even choking the wide receiver before slamming him to the ground.
