Pitt's Khaynin Mosley-Smith and Eric Williams fail to appear for morning preliminary hearings

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

You might remember that not too long ago, this happened. As a result, Eric Williams and Drew Carswell were both booted from Pitt's football program. Khaynin Mosley-Smith was only suspended.

Well, the Post-Gazette reported on Wednesday that Mosley-Smith and Williams failed to show up at their preliminary hearings on Wednesday. Yeah, that's great. For what it's worth, Mosley-Smith did at least show up in the afternoon and will have the charge against him dismissed because he performed community service.

I don't know the circumstances, so I'm going to reserve judgment. But I'm seriously questioning why Mosley-Smith wasn't there. He's the one guy that has a chance to come back to the program theoretically, so from a Pitt football standpoint, he's obviously the one I'm a bit more concerned about (yeah, I'm selfish like that).

Anyway, how will this affect his standing with the team? No idea. But I'd think that if he were trying to get back into Paul Chryst's good graces that missing a preliminary hearing isn't the way to go. Who knows, there could be a very valid reason for it. But just reading that article doesn't make me feel that good about it.
