The headline pretty much says it all: Duke sophomore linebacker Tyree Glover was arrested on Tuesday for trafficking cocaine and has been kicked off the team as Josina Anderson tipped us. The announcement that Glover had been kicked off the team was made by Coach David Cutcliffe who cited the reason as “conduct unbecoming of a member of the program.” Ah, so you’re telling me that someone distributing a few bricks of nose candy doesn’t reflect positively upon the football program or university? There’s a shocker.
You want details? Fine.
I drive a Ferrari, 555 Cabriolet, what’s up? Police reportedly confiscated 29.6 grams of powder cocaine and 72.4 grams of marijuana from Glover’s dorm room. The young man was charged with trafficking in cocaine and possession of marijuana and cocaine with the intent to sell and deliver.
Gee, ya think? So someone who has 72 grams of weed and 30 grams of coke on them intended to deliver. Naw, I really just thought his plans were to get his face number for the next six weeks.
Honestly though, this really is shocking in some aspects. It’s crazy to think that someone who’s a Division I college football player at an esteemed university like Duke actually was dealing heavy amounts of drugs. You figure they’d be too busy practicing and studying for something like that but clearly it’s not the case. Just as long as we don’t hear any arguments about why college players need to be paid to avoid something like this I’ll be fine.Google+
