Does it really matter if they were white or black, SEC or PAC10, rich or poor, stupid or genius. 4 young men were given the oppurtunity to attend a major university and I am just guessing here for FREE!! and they wind up riding in a car with a firearm with an altered serial number, open container of alchohol, and the presence of marijuana. Is there any integrity left in our youth, do these universities know anything about these kids before they bring them onboard.( Past records, background checks ). I don't like basketball at all so I really could not care any less about the whole rivalry thing, but these kids should be suspended from school and sent back to where ever they came from and replaced with someone who can appreciate the priviledge.

If Bruce Pearl is the coach and man I think he is, these players will remain suspended and perhap dismissed from the team no matter what UT's record or standing is.

Pearl is a quality coach and won't put up with the actions of these four players.

Just watch what happens with this and who all gets involved. In the end they will make the police look like they were all wrong. I am expecting a statement from the White House about the poor judgement of the knoxville police dept.
I am sure all four thugs were screaming discrimintation before they ever got the thugs loaded into police car.......Put them away PLEASE!!!!!
This MIGHT teach UT who to recruit and who to stay away from, thousands of young clean decsend athethelics would love to have their opportunity, go and get them and leave the thugs in the ghetto.

Al least you admitted that Tennessee could have caused the Wildacts some trouble reaching the NCAA National Champsionship. FYI, Kentucky is not guaranteed to win the SEC Tournament; even with the almighty new head coach, which was taken from Memphis. LOL!

KENTUCKY doesn't judge there season by the SEC TOURNAMENT ?
We have won so many SEC season and Tournament championships that we consider that as merely the build up to the NCAA TOURNAMENT and the FINAL FOUR.
But that's OK, we blue people wouldn't expect the VOLS to understand this because they've never reached this level of expectations.
ALABAMA football fans are the only people in the SEC that understand us KENTUCKY basketball fans.
Sorry people but we are both THE ROMAN EMPIRES of the SEC.

I agree not all thugs comes from the ghetto. Why is this about color? You are just as stupid as they are. You mean to tell me that not one white person has been arrested for drugs? What planet are you on? Grow up PLEASE!!!...Every time something goes wrong with an African American Male the thug word comes out. Like African American's are the only one's to commit a crime. I bet you know some one in your family or friends that has been in trouble with the law.

But I know you sit at your TV watching sports and hollering for those so call thugs every weekend. So lets get off this name calling.

We all make mistakes. Lets move forward.

Let's stop judging people. We are all GOD's people.

How about coming together as UT Fans and help these young men. No matter the color or race..!!!

You should take their scholarships away from them. If they decide to pay, thay can stay. UT should not be obligated to allow felons/students to receive free education. The price of going to college is drastic (I've been through that), so these players should have to pay their own way through to receive their diplomas.

Wait there all you behind the bars rapper lover. Lil Wayne is a dope smoking, gun holder arrested thug currently in jail. He likes to sing about Lane Kiffin. As far as I know, only UT can boast about having a registered SEX offender on the team.
They will do anything to win on Rocky Top. The NCAA should remove all sports from the big house.

I wish memphis would have beat them. If they did then they would have not been celebrating too hard but in practice. Yeah I do not care about any of the other players except smith. He had such a great future. we'll see what happens

I think that it speaks well of the Knoxville police. They will arrest anybody for breaking the law. I wonder if the Tuscaloosa police or the Gainesville police or the Lexington police would do the same with the little angels at those schools. Don't anybody try to tell me that it hasn't happened. There are plenty of thugs to go around at all the schools. These guys need to be made an example of so maybe the thugs at all the schools get the message.

The bad thing is that the rest of the country only hears about the really bad stuff that happens with UT athletes. There are incidents on that campus every day... DUI, assaults, drugs in dorm rooms, its really unbelievable what they can cover up.

I am truly suprised at all the stupid comments on this page. People assuming that blacks are thugs and that UT just gets the thugs so that they can win. Athlete's get their scholarships on their ability to play the sport. They work hard at being the best athlete they can be. For some this is the only chance they get to get an education and to maybe better their life. Alot of idiots are making this about UT and rivalry. People should show more love and empathy and be less judgemental and ignorant. I read alot of comments about Fat Phil, how christian and judging people by their color or background. Have anyone of you seen Blind Side. Michael Orr came from a bad background and he turned his life around. I don't care who wins the national championship, the SEC tournament. I am a loyal UT fan and I always will be. You cannot blame the coaches for what their players do, they are not babysitters. So please be less judgemental and let Bruce Pearl make his decisions. Stop bashing Tennessee or any school, for when you do that you are showing your ignorance. What we need to do is pray for these athlete's that they can turn their life around.
