Ok guys, if you're going to punch someone out and steal a credit card, make it worth your while. Purchase snacks from vending machines? Crimony son, you're already in deep shit after you punched the kid and took the credit card, its going to be the same whether you buy some doritos or go to fricking Best Buy, at least make it worth your while.
Really odd quote:
"We are very disappointed in the actions that have resulted in the charges against these student-athletes," the statement says. "In this type of situation, the athletics department works in conjunction with the university. We will have more to say at the appropriate time."
Hmm. What are those situations where the Athletic Department simply operates independent of the University?
A former five-star recruit for the Crimson Tide was arrested for the second time in two days and was among four freshmen who face charges of second-degree robbery or fraudulent use of a credit card stemming from Monday arrests.

Since they seem to have admitted they did what they were accused of I hope they are all off the team ASAP.
Dude probably had the munchies and needed his Dorito fix.
The nature of this crime is pretty sleazy. This isn't 'kids being kids' shit. I'd sooner forgive a kid for doing drugs, drinking, driving drunk, or even selling drugs than this shit. Basically knocking a kid out and stealing a credit card for sport. He didn't use the card to go buy groceries or get his car fixed, he used at a vending machine. That's just shitty.
This is a joke, right? Winning is all that matters in the gutter of collegiate athletics known as the SEC.
Credit card? Nothing to see here. Move along.
The RCMB...is one of the most awful, alarming, inappropriate, disgusting, and offensive msg boards in the history of the internet.
"Grow up.....it is what it is. It's all about the MONEY amigo"
Why didn't they just ask Uncle Nick for some scratch?
Now with a PhD in Applied Llama Physics...
Damn you J.O.D.-you got in before me by SECONDS!
Water is wet.
Damn Saban is revolutionizing recruitings. He knows he gets flack for greyshirting and medically DQing kids so now he resorts to more creative measures when freeing up schollies.
These things go in cycles both the power and the fall from it- Alabama makes Barry Switzer proud.
At least we have not had a Tide player firing off an uzi from his dorm room. Just a matter of time before Bama and the SEC fall from grace. They will be crushed by their own arrogance and flaunting of the rules.
T-2 days until there are threats on these victims lives.
Sounds like Deer Antler Spray rage to me.
This will be swept under the rug in days. Sad that the Rather Hall incident was in the media for what seemed like months (years)and yet something this serious will be soon forgotten.
The puffs of white smoke will soon signal Saban has been named the new Pope. Only he could deal with the challenges facing the Church.....
The indoctrinated will no longer be able to deny it, only defend it.
Those are highly athletic accused criminals
Eddie Williams - 5*
D.J. Pettway - 4*
Tyler Hayes - 4*
Brent Calloway - 4*
Some guy on sporting news said they were all bums I guess Nick gets 4 more scholarships now.
beat me to it. Sounds like roid rage
Sounds more like they needed to get their 3:00 AM "Pick 'em Out, Knock 'em Out" on.

Where was Kirk Cousins at the time?

What did rocks ever do to you to deserve such an insult?
Bottom line is these kids have no business on a college campus. There's a huge difference between throwing a punch in a fight at a fraternity drunk over a girl and knocking a fellow student unconscious to steal their credit cards and MacBook.
My understanding is that all four have been suspended indefinitely which since Saban took over no player who was "suspended indefinitely" has ever returned to the team so its basically code for these kids are gone, he just needs to get legal clearance to say so publicly.
Bama will be fine without them and I hope they get prison time so that they don't put any other innocent students at risk.
I see that D. J. Pettway attended Pensacola Catholic High School. I don't know about the other "thugs" but I'm pretty sure this was absolutely not the way he was raised.
Yea, those lucky jerks!!
