Probably at some point, if not that particular evening. It is Tech. They are four Tech football players. You know that they had to have been involved with the co-eds at some point, and that's the gift that keeps on giving....

Kind of a lifetime achievement award

Kliff has recruited a lot of unsavory guys.  However, unlike Art, he doesn't cover anything up and he kicks guys off the team.  Some examples listed on a post from another board:

That being said they've had, by their own admission, some guys who society would deem undesirable, between Rika Levi allegedly murdering at least one person after leaving, Nigel Bethel being arrested for drug trafficking after leaving (not to mention his incident with Amber Battle), the whole stolen guns out of a drug dealer's safe with Dakota (who I believe is a good person), Castaneda, and Ellison, Paul Banks being arrested recently for organized crime activities, Boyd cutting Farrar's throat after being on campus a couple weeks, Duffey being suspended from the university for allegedly sexual assaulting a young woman... and that's just what is public... so much drama.

Yep.  Rika Levi was a JUCO transfer DT from Cali who sucked.  Now indicted for murder in San Francisco. 

 

Nigel Bethel was a DB from Florida who punched the women's basketball player in a pick up game and then got busted for selling drugs.

 

Dakota Allen and two O-linemen were arrested for stealing guns from a known drug dealer.  Allen is back after a year at JUCO and seems to have straightened his life out but the other two guys got kicked out of school and never came back.  They all received pre-trial diversion for their 2nd degree felony charges and apparently have not violated the terms of the deferred adjudication.

 

Banks was JUCO transfer corner who started some for them and was arrested following graduation for robbing a bank employee restocking an ATM in Laredo.

 

Bronson Boyd was a freshman WR who got kicked off two weeks after enrolling for cutting his teammate's neck with a pocket knife during bar fight. 

 

Of course, no program is immune to this kind of crap.  We had a d-linemen who quit the team get arrested for robbing a convenience store last year or the year before.

I had a lot to say about Boykin but there's a whole new thread on the subject now so I'll just skip the whole thing.

You can say it wherever you want. But, only you.

That is a BIG scandal in the cricket world. Cricket is known as a very fair-play sport. The word is even synonymous with fair play in England. 

 

It is interesting reading the reaction compared to how people react to doctored balls in baseball.  Phil Niekro certainly never served a 12-month suspension ...

I don't think there's much of a history of cheating in cricket. Also, Australia has the best test cricket side in the world, anyway. No need to cheat. Very Nixonian.

WACO, Texas (AP) A former University of Oklahoma football player has been sentenced to 18 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery in his Texas hometown of Waco.

 

 
 
 

Parrish Cobb was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to robbing a Baylor student at gunpoint in 2017.

According to the Waco Tribune-Herald , prosecutors agreed to dismiss two other armed robbery charges against Cobb as part of a plea deal.

Cobb's attorney, J.R. Vicha, declined to comment after Monday's hearing.

Cobb, who was a defensive back for the Sooners, still faces an unrelated robbery charge in Norman, Oklahoma. Cobb originally signed with Baylor but was released from his letter of intent after former coach Art Briles was fired in May 2016.

 

So in McLennan County, robbery will get you 18 years in prison, but raping someone will only get you 18 months.
