A legal matter, baby

Mike Bobo, gaining some valuable coaching experience that will help groom him for an eventual return to the SEC:

An off-field situation will likely prove very costly for Colorado State’s defensive secondary this coming season.

In mid-May, reports surfaced that Braylin Scott was arrested by university police on three felony counts — two charges related to burglary of a dwelling and one involving theft of property valued at $5,000-$20,000.  It was subsequently reported that the safety had been accused of stealing Rolex watches and diamond jewelry from the dorm room of teammate Hunter Donnelly, a redshirt freshman linebacker for the Rams.

This week, Scott’s attorney, Erik Fischer, told the Loveland Reporter-Herald that his client will likely miss all of the upcoming season because of the criminal case.  A pretrial conference is set for Dec. 11, with the jury trial slated to begin Dec. 19; the Rams close out the 2017 regular season against San Jose State Nov. 18.

Yeah, I can see how trial prep might get in the way of game prep.  But a good coach prepares for life’s adversities, amirite?

Oh, and by the way, nice bling, Hunter.  I was lucky to have a beat-up quartz watch when I was in college.

    Man, I was just thinking the same thing as I read your post Senator.

    Gave him a full-season suspension for only three felony counts?

    DGD, but he’s obviously not yet ready for a return to the SEC. 😉

    It actually sounds like Bobo’s ready for the barn or the vols. I can’t believe he wasn’t immediately kicked off the team. Of all transgressions made by athletes, stealing from your teammates is THE ultimate sin, at least in the coaches eyes. Bobo saw this first hand on more than one occasion under Richt. There was the promising center Swopes that was dismissed several years ago for stealing a teammates tracksuit. Then everyone remembers Marshall, Chris Sanders, and Seay. IIRC, the police weren’t even involved in either case. Remember the WR for the Saints with the multi-million dollar contract who stole a couple of hundred bucks out of a guys wallet in the locker room as a rookie “prank”? He never played another down in the league. Athletes are forgiven for worse crimes and transgressions, but not usually in this case. It comes down to a team trust issue with most coaches. I’ll be surprised if this guy plays another down for CSU.
