    Grant Van Aman, a freshman walk-on punter no less, SUI (scootering under the influence).

    Supposedly Champ has already booted him from the team.

    I'm sure ESPN will have this on the front page in no time... :no:

    When media/pop culture declare things like scootering on a few is a crime worthy of dismissal coaches almost unanimously cave in to the pressure. Especially a walkon. The degree of seriousness of the actual offense is not a factor. The degree of media outrage is ALL that matters. Same reason Paula Dean gets dismissed by her sponsors while Alec Baldwin's keep him on. The seriousness of their offenses are irrelevant. The level of media outrage is the controlling factor. The media could get Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa fired if they wanted to.

    Dude is a walk on.... Non-issue. I walked on in college and had a minor in possession...if you started to track this for other teams you would have insane "arrest" numbers.

    I wonder if Jeff Driskel would receive the same punishment for SUI.

    The NCAA must act and ban performance enhancing scooters immediately.

    Suspending a walk-on that has little chance of playing = a tree falling in the woods and no one there to hear it, does it make a sound?
