FSU Football: Rod Owens DUI, NoleCC’s Tired Of This Stuff

Tomahawk Nation: Rod Owens Arrested For DUI.
WCTV: FSU Football Player Arrested.
Heather Dinich: Even more embarrassment for FSU.
If you’ve been paying attention, I haven’t posted a lot of football related news on ScalpEm recently. I basically didn’t acknowledge spring practice, the spring game, recruiting or anything else lately. Why? Because I’m SICK AND TIRED OF THIS PROGRAM, THE SELFISH PLAYERS IN IT, AND THE COACHING STAFF THAT DOESN’T SEEM TO GIVE A CRAP ANYMORE. Rod Owens DUI is the latest and greatest black eye for the school that I love and graduated from.
Like it or not the football program is the front for Florida State University for most of America, and right now America should think FSU is full of slacking, mistake prone, immature people. According to the various articles, Owens blew a .155 at 4:30 in the morning. Like TN said, either he was sauced badly at 2AM when the bars closed, or the party continued elsewhere, late into the night. TN makes a good point, that legally this is the first offense for Owens, and should be treated as such. I agree, in regards to his enrollment at FSU, if any other student got a DUI it wouldn’t matter at the Monday morning class. But, there’s that other part to Rod’s FSU status, as a football player, and in my opinion, zero-tolerance should be shown here. SEND A MESSAGE TO THE PLAYERS.
Maybe I’m out on an island on this one… or maybe I’ll get a bunch of bottles back:
