    In light of Colorado's current headlines (Hang in there Brandon!)

    I thought a look at few other college team's situations would be interesting:

    A Year in Crime: College Football's All-Dismissed Team


    This (above) article/barely touched on Oregon -- with LeGarrette Blount acting like a thug, on the field, in front of the coaches and refs -- half the team involved in some kind of melee involving all of the team's kickers and ending with a bunch of guys (including a walkon DE, the quarterback and a top WR) getting in more trouble in a mistaken attempt to venge their guys. But there's more: racism, drunk driving, facebook ... you get the idea. So read all about it here:

    Oregon Ducks: The Soap Opera
    http://jockpost.com/oregon-ducks-soap-opera-racism-theft-assault-revenge/


    I thought this was a typo, because when I searched, one article said

    Three Vols Players Arrested
    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=4647094

    and the other article said
    Four Vols players arrested, suspended

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/story?id=4788521

    But no, there ARE two articles. The "three" article is football players and the "four" article (two months later) are basketball players. Got it? Try to keep up.

    And in other news ...
    After bragging that "LSU's football program has not had a player arrest in more than a year" you just knew something was going to happen.
    First, in March 2010, LSU wide receiver Terrance Toliver and a basketball player decided to take on a policeofficer (not a well-thought out idea).

    And today, there's more:
    LSU center Hebert arrested for DWI


    LSU had a center taken out today for Driving While Impaired, which seems tame after all the armed robberies, etc. that other schools are managing.


    Hebert's been suspended from the team. Natch.

    And two guys from Arkansas --- controlled substance possession.

    Actually, I give up.

    If you put "football players arrested" into google, there are 7,590,000 matches. It's depressing.

    Over the summer that list will grow tremendously.

    Let us hope no more buffs make the list. Please.

    Is it possible that "hootdrat" is not a racist term, and the assumption that it is exposes the prejudices of others?
