Why now?

A lot of people asked me in the last few years, “Hey Troph, why don’t you get a blog or at least a twitter?” My response had been that it’s hard to type when you are stiff arming someone with a football in the other hand. With the advent of Siri and my iPhone 4s (Steve Jobs rest in peace), I now have a cheap assistant who will do all the dirty work for me. I love it! I can’t wait to unleash all this dirt I’ve been storing up, Rashaan Salaam watch out.

BTW my twitter handle is @HeismanTroph

We found out Rashaan wrote it on his own and sending a message to his family I want kill myself and saying good bye for good with a gun on his side.

Our sources say Salaam was sick of tired of black people getting killed by white police officers and also on his suicide note he believes president elect Donald Trump will continue that path by killing more black people during his term.

As we reported there were no obvious signs of foul play. An autopsy is scheduled to be performed.
