A little extracurricular activity by two Alabama Crimson Tide football players has them catching a ride back home to Tuscaloosa, just days before the BCS National Championship game.
The Crimson White, the student newspaper of the University of Alabama, named freshman linebackers Dillon Lee and Ryan Anderson as the players sent home for what has been called a violation of team rules.
The university would not confirm the names of the players, and head coach Nick Saban issued a brief statement on the matter.
“We sent two player home due to a curfew violation,” Saban said in the statement.
Lee appeared in eight games for the Tide in the 2012 season, recording one tackle and an interception against Michigan. Anderson has not played this season.
While the loss of the two freshmen is not seen as a blow to the team from a competitiveness standpoint, it sends a message that actions have consequences when preparing for a critical game.

"Whenever I see those crimson jerseys and crimson helmets, I feel humbled to have played football for Alabama. Other players in the NFL talk to me about their schools and their traditions. I just smile knowing the immense love Alabama fans have for our school and its football program. I'm proud to be a part of that Crimson Tide heritage."

I expected Anderson to contribute this season but he just couldn't crack the rotation. He has the ability to be a big time name for us, and as for Lee I see him being a consistent back up and special teams guy.

Anyway, it's Miami...I half expected some stupid shat. Glad it was from two guys who don't have an effect, but still embarrassed for them.
