I could have played quarterback at the University of Tennessee…

but then I got high.  Again.

The updated tally for Kaidon Salter as a University of Tennessee quarterback is two marijuana-related incidents and zero practice snaps.

Salter, a four-star early enrollee from Dallas who was suspended for all of spring practice following a Stokely Hall confrontation in early March, was pulled over early Saturday morning in Knoxville along with three-star offensive tackle signee Amari McNeill. According to university police, Salter and McNeill were stopped for not having their tail lights on, and they admitted to having about four grams of marijuana.

Kid might as well enter the portal and transfer to Colorado.

Today, in youth is wasted on the wrong people

Let’s check in and see how Derion Kendrick’s career reboot is progressing…

Former Clemson football player Derion Kendrick was arrested Friday morning on gun and drug charges, according to a report from The State. 

Kendrick, a senior cornerback who was kicked off the team by head coach Dabo Swinney in February, was found asleep in a car with a gun in his lap around 3 a.m. by Rock Hill police officers, court records obtained by The State showed. He also had a small amount of marijuana, which led to a simple possession charge.

The gun charge is considered a misdemeanor, and he was taken to the Rock Hill jail, where he appeared in court and was later released on a personal recognizance bond.

Gun and drug charges, eh?  Well, at least he didn’t have a domestic assault charge thrown in.

I would assume this means Athens’ interest in Kendrick has significantly cooled.  I’m sure there are still places who want to help a good young man straighten out his life, though.

There’s a reason Corch had that fucker on speed dial.

That is an accurate number, per the New York Times.

A roster on the university’s Web site lists 121 players, 41 of whom have been arrested, either in college or afterward, and sometimes both. That number included 16 players on that season’s final two-deep roster, nine of whom were starters, as well as a kicker, punter and returner. Several of those players went on to the N.F.L., and one, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, later won the Heisman Trophy playing for Auburn.

Definitely a special team.  Mrs. Corch was pretty special, too.

After Hernandez’s arrest, Florida declined to comment. Meyer, about to start his second season as coach of Ohio State, initially declined to answer questions about Hernandez, a player who reportedly went to regular Bible study in Meyer’s home.

But Meyer’s wife, Shelley, posted on her Twitter page, “When will we start holding individuals accountable for their own decisions/actions and stop blaming any/everyone else?” She added the hashtag “liveyourliferight.”

Praise Jesus!

But in 2009, the number of arrests was such that The Orlando Sentinel, which covers the university, decided to maintain an online database to keep track of them.

I guess those Bible studies didn’t take real well.

The KPD ain’t what it used to be, Jeremy.

Reading this story, I immediately had this image of Pruitt telling Fulmer he had to kick the kid off the team, only to have Phil respond, “back in my day…”.

Is LSU the Baylor of the SEC?

Sure is a lot of denial going on in Baton Rouge.

LSU’s failure to adequately address sexual misconduct goes beyond one star running back, a USA TODAY investigation found. Officials in the university’s athletic department and broader administration repeatedly have ignored complaints against abusers, denied victims’ requests for protections and subjected them to further harm by known perpetrators.

At least seven LSU officials had direct knowledge that wide receiver Drake Davis was physically abusing his girlfriend, a different LSU women’s tennis player, but they sat on the information for months, while Davis continued to assault and strangle her. In another case, the school determined that a fraternity member had sexually assaulted two women, but it refused to move him out of classes he shared with one of them and altogether ignored an allegation against him by a third female student.

USA TODAY also found three cases in which, rather than expelling or suspending male students found responsible for sexual assault, LSU allowed them to stay on campus. The men, non-athletes, received “deferred suspensions,” a probationary period during which they must stay out of trouble.

In a fourth case, LSU deferred the suspension of a man who stalked and sexually harassed a fellow student, even after he’d pleaded no contest in court to telephonic harassment.

The article is pretty damning and so is the school’s reluctance to provide information about the incidents.

Sadly, the NCAA has already indicated with Baylor that it’s not willing to go very far in confronting its member institutions over this, so that leaves things up to Greg Sankey.  One wonders if he’s prepared to be as stern with LSU as he was with, say, Hugh Freeze.

College men, from LSU

So, after a two-year investigation into numerous violations, LSU is going the self-imposed penalty route, docking itself eight football scholarships over a two-year period and reducing recruiting visits, evaluations and communication, in the hopes that the NCAA won’t do more.

Most are focusing on the incredibly stupid public display after the national championship game by Odell Beckham Jr.,  who handed out celebration cash to some of the LSU players, but the much bigger problem the school faces is this:

The father of former offensive lineman Vadal Alexander received $180,000 in stolen money from LSU booster John Paul Funes, who admitted in 2019 that he embezzled more than half a million dollars from Our Lady of the Lake Hospital in Baton Rouge. The money was payment from 2012 to 2017 for what the NCAA characterized as a “no-show job.”

What is it with fathers of SEC players and $180,000?  Is that like an unwritten rule of the official going rate?

But I digress.

That’s some seriously bad shit there.  Funes is serving time for his actions and I have a feeling that’s going to play into whatever the NCAA decides.  What I can’t figure out is why LSU didn’t go ahead and throw a postseason ban into the pot.  If ever there’s a time to serve that, it’s 2020.
