Oregon's Kiko Alonso arrested

The 2011 season could have been a new year and a fresh start for Oregon linebacker Kiko Alonso, one that wiped the slate clean after a bad 2010 campaign. Alonso was arrested for a DUI last February which came with the requisite suspension from the team. To make matters worse, Alonso then injured his knee in spring practice and had to miss the entire 2010 season, which went rather well for Oregon.

Now there's news out of Oregon that the 2011 season is starting off a lot like 2010 did, as Alonso has once again found himself to be on the wrong side of the law.

Pending Alonso's release from jail, corrections officials could not confirm the charges the lineback was arrested for. The Oregonian reported Sunday that Alonso was arrested and charged with burglary, criminal mischief and criminal trespass.

While 2011 rosters have not been set, Alonso would have competed for a starting spot on the Oregon defense to replace recently drafted Casey Matthews, who was picked up by the Philadelphia Eagles in the fourth round.

Following this arrest, it's not likely that Alonso is going to earn that starting spot to replace Matthews. In fact, he'll probably be lucky to keep his spot on the team at all. Oregon and Chip Kelly have yet to make a statement on Alonso's future with the Ducks, but I would think he doesn't have much of one left.

UPDATE: In a move that doesn't come as much of a surprise, Oregon has suspended Alonso indefinitely.

Here is proof that Oregon is finally becoming a top tier collegiate program...the crime blotter is beginning to fill up.  I am sure Kelly will give the kid a third chance (as long as he can fill the 2 gap.)

Keep it up Oregon, you only need a few more dirtballs on your team to take over from USC as the dirtiest team in the country!


Besides the other 25 teams that have far more arrests than Oregon this year. And don't forget the teams that have far more arrests over the past few years. You're an idiot...
