Dorsey, Gay sitting out spring drills

CHAMPAIGN — Illinois tight end Louis Dorsey and defensive end Isaiah Gay are not participating in spring drills because of off-the-the-field issues, coach Lovie Smith said this morning.

Dorsey and Gay played significant roles in 2017.

Dorsey had 22 catches for 395 yards and three touchdowns. Gay had 20 tackles, four for loss, including a sack.

"They are taking care of personal issues," Smith said. "Hopefully we will get them back after spring."

Smith wouldn't go into further details.

Sounds like poor grades in the spring semester to me.

But of course it has to be kept hush-hush secret  and the Gazoo sportywriters won't dare do some reporting and try to find out--gotta protect the wee lads.We're expected to blindly root them on but aren't allowed to ever know their poor behavior.
