Four players on Alabama’s 2012 national championship team were arrested on Monday, according to a USA Today report:

Three of those players – safety Eddie Williams, linebacker Tyler Hayes and defensive end D.J. Pettway – were charged with second degree robbery. A fourth, H-back Brent Calloway, was charged with fraudulent use of a credit/debit card.

All four players are freshmen and had minimal playing time. In 2011, Calloway was arrested by Tuscaloosa police for second-degree possession of marijuana.

An Alabama spokesman would not comment immediately on the arrests beyond saying the school was aware of them.

This is a major part of the problem associated with Big Time football. If no guidance from home, from the staff, from their Souls....then this is the results of ignorance. Each major school should have a person "Counselor that is on staff to do what is vital in eaching these deveoping young mena and women".  The tragedy is they wer not focused and the results of their mental illness came out, I wonder if they had been hit in the head several times and the problems impacting the Pro Players, just hit them early. Pray for them and their families, they have shamed themselves, their family, the university and the Black Race. Period. Lord Help Us.

Whatever.  They'll be playing next year.  This is par-for-the-course for ol' Bammy.

They don't sound like big losses. However, this epitomizes that players need to be getting some sort of stipend so this kind of stuff never happens.

Well, that's one way to trim the roster to take care of the over-signing.  If they aren't on the depth chart, easy excuse to release them.

 @EddieKing  @RedNeckerson  @doublejtrain68 Well I think that is jacked up. I'm black and my son plays football for a University ( he's black- pun intended) and I don't live in a Welfare community. He graduated with a 3.4 GPA, received athlete of the year, All state LB and he played basketball, ran track and worked a part time job! So every black person is not the same, and for the record, they're are more poor white's then there are blacks. Whites kill there family members, then themselves, black kill each other and do the time. Redneckerson Username fits him to a T

 @Surprise  @RedNeckerson  @doublejtrain68 ofc that is what he is saying because everyone knows only black people live in  "walefare communities" no whites or mexicans or anything else. so now I ask you who's the racist ? :D
