So, do you believe Mitch McGary only smoked marijuana the one time?

    I think it's more than a little ridiculous that the NCAA suspends players a year for smoking marijuana. And apparently the NCAA thought so too, considering that they reduced the penalty a few weeks ago (not that half a year displays any particular Solomonic wisdom).

    It's ridiculous that the NCAA doesn't have a standard penalty for all schools.

    Crazy that the NCAA tourney rule is so harsh.

    I could care less if he or anyone smokes pot. I mean, I wouldn't want players getting stoned before practice or games, but what they do in their free time is no business of ours IMO. They're allowed to drink, and alcohol is far worse for you in almost every respect.

    And the NCAA can't understand why the student/athlete wants a union for representation?

    Cigarettes are worse also. It's pretty sucky since THC can be traced a long time after use.

    When I read the story I was thinking "How old is he as a sophomore because he was talking about drinking alcohol?" and then I googled him and he is in fact 21. Jeez. Did he get held back a year or two?

    Incoming Gator recruit Devin Robinson spent an extra year in prep school and will turn 20 sometime in his frosh season. Don't know McGary's situation (he could just be old for his school year?).

    I just found it weird only because I finished my first semester of grad school at 21.

    But I did bolt out of High School at my first opportunity at 17.

    Agreed. It's pot. It's safer than alcohol. It can be use to make ropes and baskets. It's not a performance enhancing drug, and it will be legal in 49 states within 20 years (sorry, Utah tokers).
    Here's a rare opportunity for the NCAA to be a vehicle for change, and they crap their pants instead.

    I doubt he's drafted, so he'll be heading to Europe. He should have bolted last year.
