    So during the recruiting process CLM knew he was a pothead and would get busted for possession at some point in the future? If that's the case he would pursue a lot fewer kids and we'd have tons of scholarships left over every year unclaimed. Every kid we don't get who turns out to have problems later, it's because Miles was somehow clairvoyant and wiser tan all other coaches and knew they would have issues? Where was his crystal ball when RP, Hill and a host of other guys with issues and were subsequently dismissed or had trouble with the law signed at LSU? Out for cleaning that day?

    Him too. And a host of others that other coaches must have passed on because they must have known the'd have problems. These "our coach has more character and integrity than your coach" threads make me giggle like a little girl. Some choir boys can start to act like thugs when they get away form home and are in the big time college football environment. No coach can always accurately predict whether that will happen.

    Speaking of, did you hear that he's letting one of the guys involved in that string of armed robberies (Pettway) back on the team?

    Ergo my rare case of sarcasm. Plus he was just an accessorie/lookout/getaway driver. Im sure he's learned his lesson.

    I hear ya but anyone with half a brain should realize there are so many unknowns about how a kid will act/what they will do when they're away from home, etc.

    Hell my parents kept a pretty good leash on me to where I went ape shit when I moved away to college. People would ask how I liked it and I'd tell them it was like being in Florida on your Senior trip- do WTF you want and when you want.

    Mom later told me dad thought I was on drugs but she told him I stayed away cause when I was home he put my ass to work. I was pretty wreckless and often think how lucky I am to still be alive.

    Yeah, I knew you were being sarcastic, but I felt compelled to mention that because it's barely getting any press whatsoever.

    If it were Miles reinstating him, the front god damn page of the NY Times would be all like "ZOMG MILES IS A CRIMINAL ENABLER", followed-up with a 10-part SI hit piece on his shady dealings.
