UT AD Won’t Comment On Discipline For Arrested Freshmen

UT athletic director Mike Hamilton isn’t talking about discipline for three freshman football players arrested for armed robbery this morning.

“At this time we are currently evaluating the circumstances surrounding an incident involving Mike Edwards, Janzen Jackson and Nu’Keese Richardson.  Any decisions of comments regarding their status will not be made until the evaluations are complete.”

In most circumstances, coaches and programs give their players the benefit of the doubt until court cases are complete.  (See: the Houston Nutt/Jamar Hornsby situation at Ole Miss.)

But armed robbery is a different beast.  Armed robbery isn’t driving without a license, underage drinking or fighting. 

So will Tennessee deliver a swift judgement on three players who used a handgun to rob someone at a convenience store?

Or will the fact at least two of those players have bright futures lead UT to take their time and let things play out in the court system?

We shall see.
