Duke LB arrested on cocaine trafficking charges

Duke being Duke, the image of their football players tends to be that of a collective of academics-first goody-goodies that might be a little too smart to play championship football, much like Vanderbilt or Northwestern in the SEC or Big Ten.

No, it's not fair, but Blue Devil reserve linebacker Tyree Glover may have been trying a little too hard to disprove that stereotype. Glover was dismissed from the Duke program yesterday after having been arrested Tuesday on charges of trafficking cocaine and marijuana possesion. Per the local Herald-Sun:
The 6-foot-1, 255-pound sophomore linebacker from Crescent City, Fla., was being held in the Durham County jail Thursday in lieu of $750,000 bond ...

[Police spokesperson Kammie] Michael said police then obtained a search warrant and searched his dorm room on the Duke campus where they found marijuana.

Michael said police confiscated 29.6 grams of powder cocaine and 72.4 grams of marijuana.

Glover wasn't a major part of the Blue Devil defense, with 20 total career tackles, but he had appeared in 23 of 24 games since his 2009 arrival on campus.

Something tells me that at Duke, those 23 appearances aren't quite going to be what Glover's abbreviated Blue Devil tenure will be remembered for.

If Duke payed thier players as much as some teams, the players wouldn't need a second job. 

Ok...how about paid.  Maybe if I payed attention in school, I wouldn't need a second job too...to....two.

This is a perfect example of the sorry state of College Football.  For Duke to accept a player of this intellgence (little or  none) shows how desperate Universities have become to field a winning team, at any cost.  Duke used to rank up there with Stanford, Northwestern, and Vandy as the institutions that proeduced the best minds on and off the field.  I guess that illusion was shattered.  The fact of the matter is that just about any school will take a kid that has potential talent, no matter how stupid or ignorant he is.

Wow, a Duke player arrested for cocaine and Rice players busted for marijuana possession.  I thought their recruits were more intelligent than the norm?  Time to re-evaluate their background checks and screening protocols.

Thats what Duke gets for recruiting a guy named Tyree.  Doesn't sound like he got to Duke because of his academic prowess.  I hope he knows how to play handball.
