Likely first-round pick HaHa Clinton-Dix suspended at Alabama

HaHa Clinton-Dix, who is widely regarded as the best safety in college football and a future first-round draft pick, has been suspended by Alabama.

Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban would not say why Clinton-Dix is suspended, other than that he violated “team rules and policies.”

“I’m going to be consistent. When guys get suspended, I never ever say what it’s for. All right?” Saban said. “So, I’m not going there, so don’t ask me. It’s the way it always happens. Every guy. If they do right, they wouldn’t be getting suspended. I don’t know for how long this will be, so don’t ask me that either. That’s the only new news we have right now.”

Clinton-Dix is in his third season of college football, which means he does have another season of NCAA eligibility but can enter next year’s NFL draft. There’s little doubt that he’s good enough to play in the NFL, but teams will want to know whether off-field issues are likely to remain a concern.

    A trip to Wikipedia tells me that his real name of “Ha’Sean”. Being an Eagles fan, I’m used to names like LeSean and DeSean, but where did the nickname “HaHa” come from?

    @titusyoungslegalcounsel @toonloonboon His name is Ha’Sean, “HaHa” is a nickname. Just like your nickname, “Can’t be bothered to google things”

    I can just see him saying “What’s my name?” when he drops 15 slots in the draft and realizes that whatever he did has cost him a couple of million dollars.

    I thought his brother was “He Hate Me”

    P.S. since safeties are no longer permitted to tackle at the next level, what exactly are the qualifications to be NFL-ready? Know how to stare down the mic at reporters?

    Hoping the Eagles draft Ha Ha to replace any of the other Ha HA’s they have playing safety

    I acctually met his dad a couple weeks ago on the road and the nickname “Ha Ha” actually came from when he was little he would do something that would make most kids cry and get up saying “Ha Ha” for those wondering where the name came from
