I can’t wait to hear the next Li’l Wayne rap.

This should blow Junior’s street cred through the roof.

Those are some of the crown jewels from his last recruiting class, too.

******************************************************************

UPDATE: I guess this FanPost at Rocky Top Talk is due a new entry or two.  Nice header, though.

******************************************************************

UPDATE #2: Nice catch by Matt Hinton“As of roughly 2 a.m. today, though — just hours after boasting about the Vols’ perfectly clean arrest record since his arrival…”

The punch line?

Orgeron deals a lot with team discipline.  “We’ve had zero arrests in now 11 months here.”

If Junior’s not responsible, is it still part of the plan?

******************************************************************

UPDATE: #3: Now that I think about it, this joke was inevitable.  (h/t Groo)

******************************************************************

UPDATE #4: Leave it to Bruce Feldman to tie the perfect bow on the box.

… It’s bad all around for UT. The fact that this all happened as a gas station, and involved Nuke Richardson is surreal considering it ties together two of Kiffin’s biggest off-season rants (South Carolina/Alshon Jeffrey and Florida.} It’s like Curb Your Enthusism meets Cops.

    I have a cousin who is a Gator fan and had two e-mails alerting me to this already. The Gators are giddy about it because they wanted Nu’Keese, didn’t get him, and now feel like they dodged a pellet (pun intended). It would have been better if the hoodies were creamsicle orange. Although, maybe the hoodies were part of the Halloween black uniforms…

    Seriously, I saw the headline and thought maybe the story is going to be that the ‘victims’ were friends who had taken something from the players, and they were just trying to get it back. But, the article just makes it sound like random thuggery. I don’t see how they can avoid jail/remain with the program, and that is even allowing for the fact that this is the UT program we are talking about.

    At least they had the good sense not to be riding scooters in the process.

      They were in a Prius. Really any difference?

    If the Prius don’t fit, you got to acquit.

    Prius – the vehicle preferred by three out of three Vol players for its silent getaway capabilities.

    Does the false imprisonment of Nu’Keese constitute a breach of the Pahokee Peace Treaty?

    And the identity of Knoxville’s version of Johnny Hog Johnson is…?

    My early prediction is that Lame will
    (1) state that they are suspended pending further investigation
    (2) offer some dull platitudes about “innocent til proven guilty” and that we must “let the justice system do their job”
    (3) Eventually soft pedal the crime by pointing out that it was a pellet gun and they never intended to harm anyone.

    Make no mistake this is a serious crime. My wife had her purse snatched a few years back and I can say that from her perspective, when a stranger crosses that line and is in your space with bad intentions, your animal instincts assumes worst case scenario. Pellet gun or not, the victim in this incident might well have thought death was imminent. That is why these guys should be prosecuted and thrown in the clink. Mopeds or not.

    When WKU played Tennessee the opening week, Tennessee was flagged for 12 men in the huddle early in the game. The camera’s then showed Junior yelling at the refs, “hey! how bout a warning!”

    I bet he will be yelling the same here pretty soon regarding this situation.

    We really lost to these clowns 45-19. Sad.

    Kind of being a hypocrite with the PRIUS then using a CO gun for the robbery? I guess Prius owners think that because they are driving a Prius they can cut corners on other moethods of CO output. That’s the problem with global warming.

    The AP is now reporting that the robbery would have been successful had the victims not ripped their shirts off since that move prompted a spontaneuos UT mosh pit which caused the players to forget their alterior motives and join in

    Don’t be too quick to judge these three scholar athletes because of your hatred of Lane. This was all probably all just a simple misunderstanding. The drug paraphernalia was not theirs, the air gun was probably for recreational target shooting, and who doesn’t roll around with a couple black hoodies on chilly Knoxville night?

    Here’s what gets me about it, and where this thing will hinge. These guys didn’t get anything off the victims, right? I admit this could be completely made up.. the wallets were empty. If it is true, then nothing would make me happier than to see Laner squirm over the hipocrisy he’s created. All I’m saying is that I’m open to the fact that this could be some opportunists.

    I wonder if those were Tennessee Hoodies.

    And now onto the lightning round of “Who Flips First !?”

    Before we start that round by, between and among the three Vols and that lucky girl, Mike has issued the usual statement written by some lawyer. We are still awaiting Lane’s statement from Dollywood but most predict it will have something to do with try to prove intent such as they were in a Prius, no semi-automatic weapons were involved and it was a victimless crime since no money or flair changed hands.
