When it Rains Stupidity, It Pours Stupidity
Dave Hooker over at GVX reported today that Tennessee freshman defensive back Nyshier Oliver was charged with theft by shoplifting hours before the Memphis game on November 7.
The citation was issued at 1:45 pm at Dillard’s Department Store, located in the West Town Mall. Game time was at 7:00 pm.
Stupid Number Four (see my previous posts on Stupid No’s One, Two, and Three – here, here, and here), pictured at left, was reportedly observed by police trying to conceal a $110 brown polo shirt in a Dillard’s bag.
Stupid’s court appearance is set for Monday November 23. According to Oskie over at 3SIB (a lawyer I’m told), he hasn’t technically been arrested yet, but likely will be.
Stupid’s only appearance in the Orange Jersey this season was in the Alabama game.
The shoplifting occurred before the armed robbery occured this past Thursday (Jeez, I can’t believe I’m writing a sentence like that). Thus, Will’s post over at RTT rightly poses these questions:
- When did Kiffin find out about this?
- Did Kiffin know about Oliver’s situation on November 11, during his weekly teleconference, when he recounted Tennessee’s spotless record in terms of no arrests, etc?
- Is it possible that Oliver kept it quiet because he wasn’t arrested, only cited, and Kiffin didn’t find out until later?
Will, thanks for these questions.
I don’t want to hear that this is just part of college football.
I don’t want to hear that we don’t recruit angels.
I want to hear the answers to Will’s three questions.
