PSU PLAYERS CLEARED IN DRUG INVESTIGATION


As I have been reminded numerous times in the past few hours by Nittany Lion fans, the four Penn State players involved in a drug investigation (tailback Stephfon Green, defensive tackle Devon Still, guard Johnnie Troutman and defensive end Eric Latimore) have all been cleared of any involvement.

A 25-year-old Delaware man, Ronald Bridges, will be charged with drug counts. Bridges is not a Penn State student and was visiting the apartment where the players reside. Officers found marijuana residue and drug-related items in the apartment, but according to police, the case is now closed.

A raid at a university party last year resulted in marijuana possession charges for Lions Abe Koroma and Maurice Evans, who both began probation in February and also served three-game suspensions, hence the internet alarms sounding when the newest story came on the radar. JoePa said that the latest incident was blown out of proportion, and in this case, it looks like he was right.

Blown out of porportion or putting the blame on a fall guy?

Just depends on how you see it, as a wise young football coach once said : " Where there's smoke there's fire"

I seem to remember a video with about 300 PSU students chucking projectiles at Ohio State fans and they blamed that whole incident on the 1 Pitt student who was there.

Listen, Burress, the weed wasn't the PSU players'. The guy from Delaware brought all of the weed from Delaware. The PSU players were "just holding it for him". That's not a crime!

I always thought possession was 9/10ths of the law??

O Lord, it WAS the Pitt student who was throwing stuff. Facts are facts.

OH right, none of the PSU students in that video were doing anything?

Including the ones you could CLEARLY SEE THROWING THINGS?

Facts are facts though.

Did you know it rains $100 bills in State College too?

Hey I don't defend the guys in that video at all, I'm a PSU alum, and quite honestly thought 75% of the frat members up there were total douchebags. So yeah, that video containing the 1 Pitt student, 297 Penn State student/fraternity memmbers and 2 Ohio State fans actually just contained 300 douchebags.

Ahhh...nothing like the smell of manure and douchebag on campus.

Right Adam?

Nightmare,

You are a reasonable human being and sports fan, I think that has been well documented.

I have no doubt in my mind that similar things happen at every school with the drug busts, but these guys just manage to get caught. I was just making a point based on recent news and facts.
