honestly im hoping everything works out for the best and he gets to return . but lets take a stroll down memory lane if you will  for a moment.


  remember Montavis Pitts ? I was so excited about seeing this guy play I thought to myself this guy is gonna have a big breakout year his seinior year (06).  (06 was the year most thought we'd finally win another national championship) and i remember about a month and a 1/2 leading up to the start of the season pitts was arrested i think for DUI & he eventually left the team I remember telling  some friends losing pitts on D would come back to bite us in the a$$. i'll bring up another Michael Dyer I guy I was so sure would be our next heisman winner but ends up leaving the team a few week before the chick fil a bowl (might have been after I don't really remember the 2011 & 2012 season were both pretty forgettable).

my point is nick being arrested for marijuana feels way to similar to guys like dyer , pitts etc that could've been big impact guys for us but instead left the team after controversy came their way. I don't think nick's going to end up leaving the team but i can't get over at how stupid it was to do something like this with sec media days next week and kickoff approaching in less than a month  (6 1/2 weeks to be exact) if he does leave im not gonna mope about it im sure we'll be fine with JJ & Sean White but all this coming out now just sucks. hopefully i'll feel better about it all by this time next month but right now it feels too much like Dejavu

6 1/2 weeks would be a bit over a month and a half. That was my only take away from an otherwise interesting story.

Is it bad I was terribly confused about why a UT fan was concerned about Marshall due to Bruce Pearl being his avatar... still not used to him being Auburn's basketball coach

And I doubt Marhsall leaves the team or gets the boot over something that silly and insignificant. He wasn't even arrested for it.

Still as a team leader he is expected to make better choices.  Especially on something like this that impacts the whole team.  As an Auburn grad, I hope CGM lays down a firm punishment.  If a multiple game suspension causes us to drop a game to someone we should otherwise have beaten maybe these players will realize their dumb azz behavior has a cost to the whole team.  Stupid!

BTW - when I saw Bruce Pearl in the original post, I thought "what and inspiring an energetic Auburn man!"  War Eagle!

In some states you can't even cite someone for the amount of pot Marshall in his car. It's not even probable cause to search. There is literally no issue here. Malzahn sits him down, says something to the effect of "pull your head out of your ass, I told you not to tint your windows that dark" and we move on.

For auburn sake I hope so. But one would think he would be flying straight as an arrow after blowing one big chance to be apart of a Big university,

If this was his first issue I would disagree, but let's not forget there is a reason Auburn is the 3rd team he has played for during his college career.
