Zero tolerance from the school of second chances

Well, now.

Auburn quarterback Sean White, who was arrested early Sunday morning for public intoxication, has been dismissed from the team, a source told

Is that supposed to send a message to someone?


UPDATE:  Oops.  Forgot that White was already on his second chance.  Still seems like kind of weak sauce for a dismissal, though.


UPDATE #2:  This seems a little cold, Gus.

    Message to some recruit they have an opening at QB?

    Can we sign him up just for shits and giggles?

    AU boosters looking to see if Mark Richt is dismissing anyone from Miami this week.

    That takes care of any QB controversy when Stidham goes south.

    You kind of have to feel bad for White here. Last year he was the starting QB and they were having a good season and now they have brought in Stidham and he is off the team for an offense that would likely not be grounds to dismiss him were he still the starter.

      My thoughts exactly. White got hurt and played hurt and they were pretty good with him at full strength. Maybe we could get him and turn him into a solid player somehow. That’d be funny.

    Guessing the message was bringing in Stidham. This is just follow-through, and clearing the decks for the next Cam.

    If White were still the starter Gus would use this as a teaching moment about life. Now that they have Stidhammmmm, he is out the door and unworthy.

    This is something new. Do football players actually have options after a dismissal from aubie? I understand aubie administrators, having never dismissed a player before, had to call CMR to ask how it’s done.

    Did they call him to try to bring him into Auburn out of habit?

    “We wish him all the best”.. LOL My ass they do.

    White privilege? Not on Gus’s bus.


  12. Clearing space for a certain 5 star Georgia high school QB?

      you stole my thunder- guarantee the first phone call yesterday after Coach Double Bubble kicked White off the team was to Fields.

    “He has made poor decisions that are not in the best interest of our program…” Is this about Sean White or Malzahn’s offense.

    In a late breaking news story….AU is interested in bringing suspended QB for a tryout ….Sean White……more to follow….

    I was surprised at this. Kid was a good QB, but not great. I assume this means the freshman backup is getting it done in practice.

    Obviously, that means he’s the next in line for the Summer Heisman.

    Man, poor Sean got thrown under the Gus Bus as it drove over him, and then it backed up to go over him one more time – ice cold!

    Is getting arrested for public intoxication really grounds for being kicked off the team? I fully admit to not knowing why he had been suspended earlier, but Auburn is the one place that takes in known thieves but dismisses an over 21 year old kid for being drunk.

    Again, this may be a “last straw” kind of thing, but it seems odd that this is what Auburn would prioritize.

    The kid did a really good job last year. Clearly he was hurt against us and Bama. In the Sugar Bowl he was lighting up the Sooners until he went down again. Got the impression he was gutty and a pretty good leader. I think he probably got drunk watching that Auburn offense against Mercer. Don’t know all his history, but thought Auburn made a mistake not starting him this year.


  20. Dawg19

    Auburn quaterbacks have been getting sacked so much that even Gus didn’t want to miss out.


  21. Uglydawg

    This kid’s life is important and he needs some help..not disgrace. Shame of Auburn if they don’t offer him help and give him the opportunity to beat this propensity to turn to the wrong way when things go south. I hope he gets the help he needs. What a nice thing it would be if UGA had a program in place where they could take kids like this (from other SEC programs), get them rehabilitated and give them a chance to play or just finish school without the stigma that would be attached to them at the offended school. May sound crazy, but it would be worth it if even one life was salvaged.

      There are more worthy projects than helping pampered athletes who aren’t mature enough to take advantage of, or appreciate, the opportunity he was afforded. I hope White gets it together and succeeds at life but prefer UGA help those closer to our own campus that never had the opportunity White, an adult, squandered. Let him earn i the hard way this time, he might not piss it away.
