Good Call

Lane Kiffin tossed two of the three players allegedly involved in an attempted armed robbery in Knoxville. The other remains suspended pending further investigation.

I think it's often better to wait for the trial, but under the circumstances, I think Kiffin made the right call. This was his first big, public disciplinary challenge, and now he's set himself up as a guy who won't play around. This was especially important considering all the prominent UT players who've had legal trouble in the past several years. And unlike a kid who gets caught smoking a joint or arrested for back-talking a cop, assuming the report is correct, what these guys did was not a product of bad circumstances nor was it without malicious intent. Aside from being stupid; what if the driver they were trying to rob had a shotgun?
