..........I imagine they were sent home due to violating team rules by being out so late.

On the other hand, I suppose we will have to wait until the facts come out but what happens to this female if this proves to be bs!

I went to Texas, I am a pure Longhorn fan but I can tell all that this incident will stick to these guys like glue around Austin and Texas for decades to come no matter what happens. You don’t get an “aw shucks” around Texas for sullying the Longhorn Football program. That deed is remembered for decades. I’m curious about what Colt will say or do to his brother.

The news story buried the lede. The REAL story here is this:

“A major college football program actually took decisive action against two of its players accused of wrongdoing or rules violations despite the team being a day away from competing in a major bowl game.”

In an era whree so many universities are little more than life support for a football or basketblal program, this gives hope that someone finally got their priorities straight and “the program” is actually coming after the right thing to do.

This is rare, it’s been a long itme coming, and I have a lot more respect for that program for having read this story.

Perhaps if major programs start really disciplining their athletes and holding them to the same standards of behavior (or—the unthinkable—a HIGHER standard) than students whoaren’t getting a free college educaiton in exchange for their abilty to throw, kick or catch a ball; student athletes will be exposed to the absurd notion that the rules do, actually, apply to them.

Could this have been a setup? Actually, very possibly so. But if they weren’t supposed to be out at that time, they asked for trouble and got it.

Way to go, Longhorns!
