Griz cornerback likes to bite

Things aren't going so good for Griz cornerback Jimmy Wilson. He just got cleared to play for Montana again after getting murder charges dropped. Then this happens...

University of Montana football player Jimmy Wilson pleaded not guilty Tuesday to allegations that he bit a woman's leg, responding to the misdemeanor charge one year after jurors in Southern California acquitted him on murder charges.

The allegations prompted UM officials to suspend the standout cornerback indefinitely from football practice.

Wilson, 24, was cleared by the NCAA last month to play this fall for the Griz, where he starred from 2004-06. He was arrested for the murder of Kevin Smoot in June 2007, and spent the next two years in prison before eventually being acquitted in a second jury trial. The first trial ended in a hung jury.

I'm not sure exactly how you get into the business of biting someone's leg after you have murder charges hanging over you so either this is a big mistake, or Jimmy Wilson loves biting things. I dunno.

My guess is that you probably wont see Wilson suit up for the Griz this year.
