    Strangulation is only a misdemeanor in Oregon? Is that why P.J. Carlesimo left the TrailBlazers?

    I thought it was a former Butthusker RB who was coaching at Oregon?

    :lol: yeah Frost. Sometimes the truth is funnier than fiction. Especially since my joke was pretty bad.

    I don't believe a telephone was used as a weapon of choice, so I'm going with "no".

    The comments are classic:

    "This is not as bad as the article makes it sound. I live in Eugene so I know some of the details that were left out. The brawl was not Rob Beard's fault (it was caused by two Lane Community College students), Matt Simms was just trying to avenge the beating of his kicker, and Mike Bowlin (as stated) simply left the team. None of these players were important anyway. In the case of James, players on other teams do things just as bad or worse. The media does not post stories about crappy players so we only hear about the mistakes of people like him. Oregon is loaded at the RB position anyway. The bottom line is that this stuff happens everywhere. The U of O is not as bad as most schools."

    Not as bad as other schools? What a joke.

    Saw this elsewhere, they're really having problems:

    http://www.sportsbybrooks.com/quote-...teammate-27894

    "Yesterday Oregon football player Kiki Alonso piled on the Ducks off-field problems with an early morning DUI. Sunday morning former Oregon wide receiver Jamere Holland commented about Alonso on his Facebook page."Holland followed that up with this:

    A solid start to Chip Kelly's head coaching career.

    I realize you were quoting a comment, but when I read "none of these players were important anyway." I thought: wow. Mike Bowlin was the top 2 or 3 kicker in the country in his class. Here's the top ten from 2009. (Yeah, we have one of them, too, that's why I remembered Bowlin.)

    It was a sort of coup when he committed to Oregon, I recall. He was one of the top kickers in the running for a spot at USC that year, I think maybe Michigan as well.

    Is this just a case of "he left, forget about him, he's not a duck?"
    But the Oregon roster has already removed all traces of his brief existence on the team. Fast work by their athletic department.

    Bowlin didn't just leave football, he has dis-enrolled from the university.

    Yeah he did, I know Blount played in the civil war game, but I want to say he came back before that game. I guess that was the only big incident during the season, but this offseason has been one a select few programs could be proud of.

    Blount was immediately yanked from the team after the Boise State incident. He was reinstated early November for the ASU game. However, ever since beating OSU and qualifying for the Rose Bowl, it has been a huge spectacle in Eugene:

    • Kicker Mike Bowlin (as mentioned previously in this thread) starts a brawl (which may or may not have been caused by him hitting a woman, it's unclear). Sophomore Kicker Rob Beard steps in to break up the fight and is beaten so badly that he ends up in the ICU. Rob Beard is later charged with assault, while Mike Bowlin leaves the program.
    • Defensive End Matt Simms is charged with assault after retaliating against someone "who he thought" was involved with the Beard beating. He is dismissed from the team.
    • In what may have been more retaliation for the Rob Beard beating that was rumored to have been administered by a group of fraternity brothers, two U of O football players are caught stealing Mac Books and a projector from a fraternity house. The fraternity brother who sees them chases down one of them, WR Garrett Embry who gives him back his projector and says, "You've got it back, now you better get out of here." The other player is identified as Jeramiah Masoli, the starting QB. It is later revealed that Embry had been dismissed from the team at the time of the incident, although that was not revealed until nearly two weeks after the incident. Charges are still pending.
    • Starting running back Lamichael James, who stepped in and performed very well in the absence of Lagarret Blount, is arrested for domestic violence visited on his girlfriend. He spends 3 days in jail before pleading not guilty at his aragnment. I do not believe he has been released from jail yet.
    • Chip Kelly, silent up until this point, finally makes a statement on Wednesday evening as to the state of the program, during which he says that he and the University "will withold judgment and further comment until [officials complete their investigation.]" On Friday, to clarify his comments and answer questions he holds a press conference. He says, "If a player doesn’t live up to the standards we have for the football program, then they’re not going to be here, but I’m also not going to follow our kids around every Friday or Saturday night so I can see what happened to them.'' This is evident about 6 hours later when linebacker Kiko Alonso is arrested for DUII. Kiko Alonso is immediately dismissed from the team.
    • Kelly tells all duck players on Saturday that Kiko will be dismissed. WR Jamere Holland says (on facebook): "How you (expletive) kick kinko (sic) off the team on some weak (expletive). ... he slipped up but ive been slippn up, and I'm still here, that (expletive) ... could damage for the ducks, that (expletive) is weak, weak (expletive), quote me." He later puts up another status, "chilln thinking of another status to (expletive) with the readers heads, I wish I could block whites as friends and only have blacks LOL, cause apparently I'm misunderstood." Holland is dismissed from the team.
    • In addition, the Ducks also announce that in regular attrition, defensive linemen Andrew Iupati and Terrance Montgomery will leave the program.
    On the bright side, Diante Jackson will likely get lots of PT next year with two WRs gone. No comment yet from his grandmother as to his teammates.
