OT - Arizona making Sparty look like choir boys

Submitted by dahblue on March 7th, 2012 at 9:11 AM

This came up on my Twitter feed and it's a doozy.  Seems like Arizona football has more than a couple swell guys on the roster who (allegedly) decided to go all Sparty and beat women.  This one sounds a good amount worse than the potluck showdown in East Lansing.  I have a feeling that they won't be dealt with in a Dantonio manner:

I agree, but hopefully Rich handles that opportunity appropriately. I remember thinking that Dantonio applied very different punishment standards to those who were and weren't expected to contribute on the field (giving second chances to guys like Cunningham and Rucker that weren't as generously offered to others).

I'm pretty sure Rodriguez will deal with these players swiftly and justly.  But on a side note, after reading that article, there are going to be a LOT of women over the next few days who are going to be defending their boyfriends in the next few days.  "I know I have a black eye, Daddy, but I swear my boyfriend's not beating me!"  Yeesh.  The only woman I've ever known of who deserves to be punched in the face is Casey Anthony.

Clearly none of you every payed attention to his record at wvu, he was notorious for giving things like 1st quarter suspensions to his starters if they committed a violation before a big game.  He did a good job at Michigan and I think that reflects the culture here but richrod does not have a long record as a strict disciplinarian

You're welcome.

Tomorrow morning, look for my thread on "When is it okay to hit another man in the nuts?" and then "When is it okay to run over your neighbor's pet?"

I think this goes without saying, but this is a time where RR really needs to take a stand early in his tenure there.  I can't see him dealing with this like Groucho Mark would.

Hope Rich Rod gives these guys the Feagin treatment. Assuming they're guilty, of course. The first season is always lost under Rich Rod anyway; it's just a matter of how fast and high he can turn it around.

Now I'm picturing this whole thing going down like an old silent move. Guys dressed up in old timey clothing with waxed mustaches and rag time piano playing in the background.

Probably not. 

While Auburn's 81 points are far and away the record, the TCU score this year is already the second highest number. I'm thinking that these arrests will put Zona into second place given that there was assault(s) and multiple players arrested. I'm guessing that they will be around 15 points (depending on bonus points). That's still not even close to the 37 points that TCU has.
