Sammy Wheeler, salut!

“The day before he turned 21” is what really makes this sing.

As the saying goes, youth is wasted on the wrong people.

Urnge thirst


Two people are charged with attempting to steal more than $600 worth of beer after breaking into Neyland Stadium on the University of Tennessee campus over the weekend, according to arrest warrants.

Police were dispatched shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday after as many as five people were spotted on security cameras inside the football stadium.

Officers arrived to catch three people inside the perimeter fencing near Gate 22. Two of the suspects were carrying 24 beers apiece.

Beers at Neyland Stadium are sold for $12-13 each.

The total beers between them were valued at $624, the warrants read.

Rachel N. Barber, 20 of Nashville, and Spencer Ranencio Ngumuya, 19, of Osceola, Indiana, both admitted to crawling under the fencing to gain access to the locked stadium, and then deciding to steal the beers once they spotted them inside a walk-in cooler, the warrants state.

Seemed like a good idea at the time, no doubt.  In hindsight, though, trying to steal the most expensive Miller Lights in the state of Tennessee might not have been so smart.

Don’t bogart that drug penalty, my friend.

When I hear a coach say something like, “My deal is the welfare of the student athlete and what best helps that”, my initial tendency is to wince, but Lincoln Riley’s comments about the NCAA’s stance on marijuana make me wonder if that’s the next big frontier the organization is forced to confront.

When asked about if he anticipated the NCAA enacting looser marijuana rules similar to the MLB and NHL, Riley said he sees it in the future, but is unclear as to when it would happen.

Marijuana is now legal medically in 33 states, including Oklahoma, but Riley said players with medical cards are not exempt from marijuana tests.

Testing positive for weed means a half-season suspension under current NCAA guidelines, something that’s bound to be tested as society continues to move closer to de-criminalization or outright legalization.  It’s a stance that’s hard to justify, considering that marijuana isn’t performance enhancing.

The details on James Cook’s arrest are… um, arresting.

Georgia sophomore running back James Cook was arrested for having an open container of alcohol early Saturday after police found an unsealed 1.75 liter glass bottle of Hennessy Cognac behind the driver’s seat of the 2017 Dodge Charger he was driving.

A Bulldog offensive lineman was in the passenger seat next to Cook when the vehicle was pulled over at about 12:45 a.m. Saturday, according to an Athens Clarke-County police incident report obtained on Monday.

Police patrolling on East Clayton Street downtown observed the vehicle’s dealer tag, but could not see the expiration date. When the police moved behind the vehicle, Cook’s car switched lanes, alerting the officer that “the driver was attempting to evade me checking the temporary tag,” the report said. The car pulled into a handicapped space and police noticed that the temporary tag number indicated an unknown insurance status.

When police turned on their emergency lights, Cook and the other player exited the vehicle but were told to get back in the car.

Cook told the officer he did not have his driver’s license and he was a Georgia football player.

The officer smelled burned marijuana, the report said. Cook said there wasn’t any more marijuana because he smoked it.

Another unit was sent to the scene. Marijuana “shake” was seen on the center console and Cook admitted to smoking marijuana, according to the report.

The players and vehicle were searched. The offensive lineman—who is not being named by the Banner-Herald because he was not charged—told police he placed a Glock Model 19 pistol in the glove compartment.

Let me see if I’ve got this straight.  We’ve got:

  • an open bottle of cognac
  • a dealer tag w/o proof of insurance
  • parking in a handicapped space
  • invalid driver’s license
  • marijuana smell/admission of marijuana use
  • pistol in the glove compartment

All that, and the only charges Cook was arrested for were misdemeanor charges of having an open container of alcohol in a vehicle and driving while unlicensed.  The unnamed offensive lineman got off scot-free.

Jimmy Williamson would have sought the death penalty.  If that ain’t proof of a new sheriff in town, I don’t know what is.

Ridin’ in Mudcat’s car


According to the Athens-Clarke County jail logs, Georgia running back James Cook was arrested on two misdemeanor charges on Saturday morning.

Cook was arrested on one count of driving with an open container of alcoholic beverage in the passenger area and one count of having an invalid drivers license. Bond for each misdemeanor was $1,000. He was booked at 1:45 a.m. on Saturday and released on bond at 2:39 a.m.

Some things never change.
