Your little numbers game is cute Aqua, but it's the game itself that is laughable. Maybe you should do a little more research and not believe every report you read on the internet. It's not your fault though, it's the nature of the beast. Once stories get rolling it's hard to discern fact from fiction.
Again your information is off and your perception is as well. Garrett Embry was actually released from the team January 8th
, a full two weeks before the reports of this alleged
burglary. It makes it much more dramatic, and better news for the masses, to report that he was released because he was linked to a burglary. Also neither he nor Masoli have been charged with anything and I'm not totally sure either will, in fact they haven't even been named as suspects, they are simply "persons of interest. The frat house where this alleged burglary took place isn't exactly the picture of innocence
. 57 police complaints have been levied at the frat house over the last five years, that doesn't mean that items weren't stolen but that many calls in a five year period is kinda fishy. And sure Masoli has had his run ins with the law as a juvenile, many kids do stupid stuff when they're teenagers, that doesn't mean you should assume he's guilty. Does it look bad? Sure. Does it mean he did it? Not at all. If there is evidence he committed a crime he'll be booted or at the very least suspended.
Jamere Holland's dismissal from the team was more of a straw that broke the camels back situation, he had had several run ins with the coaching staff before and had been given several chances. Former coach Mike Bellotti and current athletic director said he had been frustrated with Holland
, and that the school had given him many chances. He was in fact finally dismissed, and rightfully so, for publicly criticizing the Oregon coaching staff and for publicly posting racist remarks on the internet.
As for James, he hasn't been found guilty of anything yet. That's really the only thing I have to say regarding his situation. If the charges aren't dropped I'm confident he wont be with the program anymore. I'm not assuming he's innocent but I'm not going to assume he's guilty either. There are plenty of cases where spouses are falsely accused in domestic violence situations. Just to be clear, if he in fact did lay a finger on that woman he should be booted from the team and never see a college football field again....which is exactly what will happen. His future with Oregon is questionable at best.
Maybe you should take off your green and gold with silver winged colored hater glasses at admit that in reality the coaching staff has been very consistent in regards to punishment. The university already has two black eyes from the slew of misbehavior by players, it's unfortunate that some feel the need to throw the rest of the program, the coaching staff, and athletic directors under the bus as well. So far what I've seen from where I'm sitting is a program that has handled every giant speed bump appropriately and as a case by case basis since the Blount suspension.
