      In http://www.trackandfieldnews.com/discus ... 16&start=0 BillVol wrote: "I'm not sure if Coach K and Roy are any better, bam. All of college basketball is corrupt."

      And we have a winner!!:

      "Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl indefinitely suspended four Tennessee basketball players, including starting senior forward Tyler Smith, who were charged with gun possession and other counts after a Friday traffic stop.

      The Knoxville Police Department said Smith, 23, junior point guard Melvin Goins, 22, junior center Brian Williams, 22, and sophomore guard Cameron Tatum, 21, were arrested during a traffic stop for speeding near Tennessee's campus."


      Maybe Coach K and Roy have just gotten REALLY lucky with their choice of players and their programs. But I think there's a little more to it than that.

        To be clear (the thread title made it sound hee-hee funny): "Tennessee football players were arrested today, just 24 hours after Lane Kiffin bragged that no Tennessee football players were arrested on his watch. But three Tennessee football players were not only arrested, but charged with armed robbery."

          What happened to the ages of college kids. Use to be:

          Frosh: 18-19
          Soph: 19-20
          Jr: 20-21
          Sr: 21-22

            It doesn't happen that much in basketball, but with redshirting, there are lots of 23 year old seniors, 22 jrs, 21 sophs.

              I can't sugar coat this one. I am sickened by this news and it has left me wondering about what is important in my life, outside of God, family, career.

                But these guys are all on pace to be 24-year-old seniors, unless they all have really early birthdays.

                    The athletes are suspended indefinitely. Tennessee's AD explains :

                    "Indefinite suspension, what does that mean," Hamilton said. "For me it means we start at dismissal and work our way backward. It doesn't mean we start at one game and work our way forward. We'll see where it goes from there."

                      Mike Strange of the Knoxville News-Sentinel, who has reported on Tennessee track and field for many years, comments on the sad situation:

                        Tennessee, meet Oregon, where I believe four football players have been arrested in the last month

                          And Oregon has upped the ante I see; starting QB suspended for whole season for involvement in robbery?!
