Is It Time?
Today, I was hoping to hear something definitive on the status of the three Vol players arrested this past Thursday for attempted robbery (pictured above, from left – Mike Edwards, Nu’Keese Richardson, Janzen Jackson). I didn’t hear what I wanted to hear, namely that they had all been suspended for the remainder of this season, including a bowl game, and further action would depend on the result of the legal system taking it’s course. But what was announced was perhaps the next best thing.
Head Coach Kiffin was quoted in Austin Ward’s Sunday evening post at GVX as saying:
“They won’t play or practice until I get all the information in, because this is too critical. No way would we ever, with something like this possibly having happened, no way would we ever let one of those guys ever play for us. We don’t let them come to the functions over here, meetings or practice or anything.
“I’m not calling it anything except for telling you that they’re not part of any of our activities until we get more information in. There’s no way I would ever let them be around our team and be around our functions with what’s been said that may have happened.”
Also, I heard on the WNML post-game show yesterday that (1) there is no curfew for players other than Friday night (pre-game night), and (2) some players live off campus.
Is it time to make it mandatory for all players to live together in one complex on campus again?
Is it time for a mandatory curfew, let’s say six nights a week (if not seven), during football season?
