You see, this is because the Bama players don't see nor take any booster money. So they are dispirit enough to commit these crimes just to feed and dress themselves.

that you need to be a very brave person to work at a convenience store these days, perhaps braver than a lobster fisherman or a long distance freight hauler.

"Williams was also arrested Sunday. A separate police report says that arrest stemmed from an incident at a convenience store in which a clerk called police and told them Williams was "acting erratic and threatening that he had something in the trunk of his vehicle after a dispute about paying for gas."

this stuff has to happen all the time.

They'd stand half of a chance.  Then again,  McCarron would likely get a one game suspension and the other 4 would transfer to McNiese State for family reasons.

They'll end up paying a couple grand for the service.  Bail bond companies have no problems putting up bail for people like Alabama football players since they know theyll show up for court and get the 60k back.

...has a little more detail on both attacks right here.

"According to depositions filed by UA police officers, D.J. Pettway, Eddie Williams and Tyler Hayes punched a student's head and face and kicked him in the ribs and back area."

...and then they took his backpack and laptop. If that wasn't enough:

"In a second robbery, Williams admitted to police that he punched a student's head and face while Pettway and Hayes stood by and watched."

...this was the attack which involved the stealing of the credit card.

Recruiting for character apparently is not a problem if you don't in fact do it, I would think. I really hope these guys find their way off the team. This is awful, and I hope the victims recover fully and speedily.

So Bama just had players arrested who were rated as the #1, 5, 12, and 13 at their positions by Rivals. That is analogous to Derrick Green, Jake Butt, Taco and Dymonte suddenly running into trouble.

A few UM fans would die from stress while Bama folks are not worried because they have so much talent to fill those spots.

Their roster is flat out ridiculous.

I played against both DJ Pettway and Eddie Williams in high school (my claim to fame is that I once tackled him) and they were both studs obviously, along with being super dirty players. It doesn't come as much of a surprise to me to see this happen as DJ hails from inner city Pensacola, FL and Eddie inner city Panama City, FL and some questionable family situations.  

Also props to the OP for "Parole Tide"

and serious stuff at that.  don't know the sentencing guidelines in bama,  but if they have priors as juveniles (highly likely these are not 'starter' crimes') they could end up in the joint.  bad ju-ju.
