Completely embarassing. Not the type of attention we need right now. I hope they use these guys as an example and this does NOT happen anymore.

It sounds like the school is coming at them with a heavy hand, which is great.
Hope the university gets it cleaned up quickly.

Well it looks like ESPN has picked up the story. Dont like the fact the this will be nationally reported, but FIU has to handled the best way possible.

you guys are not the only one's with these problems, with lost our starting right tackle after he was arrested for drugs. I am sure there are other teams in the Belt that have/wil have this problem. It is sadly a part of sports today.

I am so embarrassed :frown: and angry :mad: that it make me sick 03-puke
I don't even want to address this issue and will be glad when it ends; hopefully well ahead of the start of the season so as not to be a distraction to the rest of the team and fans!
On the coach's radio show this week, he stated that unfortunately since they were of age, that he would not be able to do anything for them which I think is good because we all have to start being responsible for our own actions. Hopefully this thread will stop being responded to so we can put this embarressment in the rearview mirror. :bang: Tell me when it's over...... :ninja:
