Unless it's something really, really minor like pleading guilty to slashing tires. :D

Not found guilty of anything, yet, but:
•immediately suspended from the football team
•suspended from the university, pending appeal
•his court date is June 21. If guilty, he'll be gone and gone.


Why do you ask? Going to suggest some changes to UT's disciplinary policies?

Rockets7, lighten up. This is a smack board, remember?

The BGSU adminstration is currently investigating the incident involving Burkes and Reese. I'm sure that Coach Brandon will mete out an appropriate punishment should one be deemed necessary. It is worth noting that the other two students involved in the disturbance were cited for disorderly conduct and fighting. Burkes and Reese were cited only for disorderly conduct. On the surface, that would seem to suggest that the responding officer read the situation the way it's been reported here.

At any rate, this matter is in no way shape or form as serious as the incidents involving Dodrill, Hefflin or that OL who assaulted his neighbor. The charges (or lack thereof) alone should tell you that.

Nope, our policy has gotten the job done pretty well so far. When it doesn't, I'm sure that we'll be able to institute changes without Kent's help.

Punishments should fit the crime, so far I'm satisfied with how that has worked for us. The recidivism rate would seem to suggest that it's working.

I look forward to watching Cribbs next season.

I'm sure Toledo fans are very happy with the UT policy!
I know at Kent, we don't intend to have a recidivism rate to measure. :eek:

So, you'll cut off all support for Kent if/when Cribbs plays this Fall, I assume?

I will be very happy if he plays.
If Cribbs plays this fall, that will mean he was found not guilty. When one of our athletes is guilty, they are done. And if he doesn't play, he will have only himself to blame and will have my pity.
I've never given a dime to football anyway. 90% of my donations over the years have been to academic areas and will continue to be regardless of athletic successes and failures.

My guess is that he pleads down, gets a suitable punishment from the team, and plays. Life will go on and hopefully he'll have learned his lesson.

It's not up to the team. University-wide policy for athletes--guilty and you are dismissed from your program. Too much self-serving lack of discipline meted out by coaches for whom winning is their main priority.
Football team had some real problems pre-Pees, so now all athletes are held to a higher standard than other students. It's worked well.
Even so, the student conduct court has suspended him from the university, but that is under appeal.
Actually, I think the domestic violence charge will get dropped entirely--he's the one who called the police on that--and there are real questions about search violations in the pot case and it would not surprise me to see that get dropped to. But if he's found guilty or pleads to any of this, even a misdemeanor pot possession charge, his football career at Kent is over, period.
