Texas loses Christian Scott indefinitely

Posted by Tom Fornelli

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that when Christian Scott is an old man reflecting on his college football career, 2011 won't be the highlight. The season started with Scott being suspended for the first three games of the season after attacking a woman who was trying to repossess his car. Scott was finally able to get back on the field on Saturday in Texas' win over Iowa State, but it's going to be a while before he sees any more action.

Scott injured his right wrist during the game and according to Texas trainer Kenny Boyd, Scott is out indefinitely.

Which means the Texas secondary is getting pretty thin. Scott was a backup safety, but with fellow safety Nolan Brewster announcing that he was giving up football last week, that leaves the Longhorns with a pair of freshman behind Blake Gideon and Kenny Vaccaro.

Mykkele Thompson and Sheroid Evans are now behind Gideon and Vaccaro on the depth chart, as is sophomore Adrian Phillips who has seen time at cornerback in the nickel package this season.

It's not exactly the best position to be in with the Longhorns having to face Landry Jones, Ryan Broyles and the Oklahoma passing attack this weekend.

Texas' Scott threw repo woman to the ground

Posted by Tom Fornelli

The Austin American-Statesman was able to get its hands on the arrest warrant for Texas safety Christian Scott, and it turns out that his arrest stems from his treatment of the woman who was repossessing his car. Scott was arrested for assault causing bodily harm on Monday afternoon in Austin, and suspended indefinitely by the team.

Jeanne Somers Doyle was in the process of repossessing Scott's car when she was blocked by another car while at Scott's apartment complex. Scott then got out of the car that was blocking Doyle, approached her in the car while screaming profanities at her. According to the police report, Doyle recognized Scott because she had repossessed his car last year. As Scott reached the car, he pulled Doyle from it and then threw her to the ground.

Scott then got into the car and fled the scene before being arrested at a nearby gas station.

Obviously if this is true, Scott's future as a Longhorn doesn't look good. I can understand the frustration of seeing your car getting taken away, and how you would want to stop the person doing it, but to attack that person -- particularly when it's a woman -- because you didn't make your car payments isn't the right way to go about things.

Doyle was just doing her job because Scott didn't.

Texas suspends Christian Scott indefinitely

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Texas safety Christian Scott was arrested for assault causing bodily injury on Monday afternoon in Austin, and it did not take Texas very long to hand out its punishment. The school announced on Monday evening that Scott had been suspended indefinitely from the team.

“We’re aware of the situation with Christian Scott and disappointed any time one of our players is accused of wrongdoing,” said head coach Mack Brown. “We’ve talked to Christian and his family, and he has been suspended from all activities with our football team. Following the completion of the legal process, we will do what’s best for the university, Christian and the team.” 

Brown also said that Texas will wait until Scott's case is resolved before making a final decision on whether or not that Scott will ever play for the school again. Though the San Antonio Express-News points out that the last four Longhorns to get arrested never played again.

As for what Scott's absence does to the Texas depth chart, Scott has started 10 games in his career, with all of those starts coming last season. Though he was not going to be handed the starting job in 2011, as Texas was impressed with Kenny Vaccaro during the spring, and you have to assume that Scott's suspension will only help Vaccaro's chances of taking the starting job.

Texas S Christian Scott arrested for assault

Posted by Tom Fornelli

It seems the Texas and Texas A&M rivalry does not take place solely on the field.

Earlier on Monday morning I wrote about Texas A&M linebacker Kyle Mangan getting arrested over the weekend after getting into a fight, and now Texas has it's own entry on the police blotter today.

The Austin American-Statesman is reporting that safety Christian Scott was arrested on Monday afternoon and charged with a Class-A misdemeanor for assault causing bodily harm. He's currently being held in the Travis County Jail and details of the incident aren't known at the time. Scott was arrested around 1pm local time. 

Scott has appeared in 25 games for the Longhorns, including 10 starts, and has made 68 tackles in his career. He's also broken up 4 passes, caused 3 fumbles, recovered 1 fumble and had 1 interception in his time with the Longhorns.

The school and Mack Brown have not yet made a statement regarding Scott's arrest.
