Stanford linebacker Shayne Skov was arrested for driving under the influence on Jan. 29, according to The Stanford Daily, citing a Stanford University Police Department report.

Skov, the Cardinal's leading tackler in 2010 - despite missing the first two games of the season - suffered a season-ending knee injury in the third game of the 2011 season. In regards to the late January arrest, Stanford head coach David Shaw issued a statement to the student newspaper.

"We have an expected standard of excellence and conduct for our football players and Shayne failed to adhere to those standards,” Shaw said Monday in a statement to The Daily through Jim Young, senior assistant athletic director of communications and media relations.

“It’s a matter we are taking very seriously,” Shaw said. “Shayne will be responsible to adhere to any legal responsibilities regarding this event, along with internal ramifications, which will be determined by the program."

Skov was on 2011 preseason watch lists for the Bednarik Award, Nagurski Trophy, and Butkus Award, and earned Pac-12 All-Academic honorable mention in 2011. The senior linebacker is expected to play a significant role in the Stanford defense in 2012.

As a fan of another private institution, USC, standards must be maintained! This is totally unacceptable conduct. LMAO

>>>he is obviously a wonderful student athlete who made a one time mistake and his indignant coaching staff will make sure that he learns his lesson and fully atones for his crimes before being allowed to represnt such a fine institution on the playing field again. It's all cool.

Oh, please. Name one black athlete with a DUI that wasn't allowed to come back to school so he could play football. Unless a football player is actually caught on tape robbing someone with a gun, he can pretty much do anything he wants, and he'll be on that playing field again. (Assuming he's a good player, of course. A bench-sitter? Fuh-geddabout it.)

Isn't this just typical of all those thugs in that conference? They are nothing but a bunch of immoral, cheating criminals; who care about nothing other than winning. And their fans all have sex with their toothless sisters....Oh wait; it wasn't a dude from the SEC??? It was a white guy from the west coast???? Oh, my bad; he is obviously a wonderful student athlete who made a one time mistake and his indignant coaching staff will make sure that he learns his lesson and fully atones for his crimes before being allowed to represnt such a fine institution on the playing field again. It's all cool.
