Another clown joins our circus.
Add the Cayleb Jones 6th Street "youth rally", Jordan Hicks/McCoy "playing scrabble" with some drunk chick at 2 AM before the Alamo Bowl and you have a program completly bereft of leaders. Mack is "walkin the green mile" and the players know it ..........
Moral of the story. Don't wear Longhorn gear in Collie Station and get drunk. Nothing good will come of it.
At Alabama they commit armed robbery. Pretty much everyone at Bama knows Saban is a lame duck (after all, who wouldn't want to coach at Texas) so it is even worse there.
That is always good advice, but he was wearing a white tee shirt.
Moral of the story. Don't be black in college station.
Yeah, I guess that doesn't concern some though, judging from the 5 down votes I received already based on my earlier post. The sad thing about this is I guarantee you if he had hit somebody else on the road and injured them as a result of getting behind the wheel after drinking, those that think this just needs to be another slap on the wrist and handled by Wylie would have a different reaction. It's unfortunate that it takes that kind of an incident to get people to wake up. I love how everyone likes to compare it to what they've done in their past as if that somehow makes it right? The bottom line is unless you start coming down hard on kids that knowingly break the rules, you're setting your program up for repeat offenders. There has to be serious consequences, not simply because of the opportunity they've been given, but more importantly, the message that this university and the program as a whole seem to want to portray (i.e. family atmosphere). Yes, you're going to have people in life do stupid things and no, the coaches can't be everywhere, but there's got to be a standard set that if your dumb enough to put all these things on the line (your team, your position/role, your life potentially) for a night out on the town doing something irresponsible and potentially life changing, then you obviously don't want to be part of this program. We don't need distractions and head cases in the lockeroom, we need kids that are focused on bringing this program back to where it belongs. Brewer, Jones, Sanders, Hicks and McCoy are all examples of poor decision making (regardless of the legal outcomes). They all knew the rules in place and knowingly broke them. Where's the leadership and the example setting on this team? I would argue that it's got to always start from the top. Let's see what Mack does this time.

Good thing stuff like you mentioned doesn't happen at other programs.
I'm very comfortable going there. I'm not here to bash Kendall Sanders for making a mistake, but I was expecting the same level of hate for the kid over here as Manziel when he got popped. Some might even argue that having fake id's (since that's the sin that seems to upset you so) is a victimless crime with driving drunk can be fatal.
I would be very surprised if none get arrested after spring ball is over. I'm not trying to say Aggie players are inherently better or have better morals. It's par for the course for big time college athletes at all universities to push the boundaries and think they won't get caught.
Ah yes, the A&M poster is lecturing us on objectivity. I might as well take a hitting lesson from the Astros.
whoops double post

Robert Joseph and Andre Jones agree with this post.
I had a white friend that got arrested on College Station. Moral of the story... don't be in College Station.
Free Country....what are your standards?????? I am insulted that HIcsks and McCoy are still on, the team. This is a sport, not salvation..........It is old fashioned, but I would like to admire the guys I root for rather than hope " those silly boys" don't get into to trouble. ftarnot have have never been my role models because I think we all should lead purposeful lives....... throwing or kickin a ball is fine entertainment, but guys like Saban are trivial..... after alll.......... his claim to fame is getting a bunch of young boys to perform like trained mice.......
The fact that Hicks and McCoy are still on this team tells me all I need to know about the "save the Mack Brown Tour"
Not condoning what he did but some of us, especially at that age, think we are better than others and so we wont get caught. Its just human nature. They can tighten the rules, but there will always be the few who think they are talented enough to not get caught taking chances... Unfortunately some have to just learn the hard way...
Lol, you are such a loser. Go back to your board, little one.
Disciplina praesidium civitatis
I'm sorry when did the UT football program become your property? Your insulted, maybe you should get a pulpit and them you could preach your sanctity to everyone. Please try to get over yourself.
