Not a Good Day for San Diego State

San Diego State football took a major hit on Tuesday, and they didn’t even step on the field. In case you missed it, the Academic Progress Rates were released by the NCAA on Tuesday. San Diego State football was ranked 5th worst of all 119 D-I teams. Wasting no time, the NCAA has already penalized SDSU, stripping them of six scholarships over the next two years. Tony Gwynn’s baseball team was not one to be left out. They were put on notice too, though they were only docked something like .03 of a scholarship. I didn’t even know that was possible. But I do know that when you’re ranked only one slot above Ned’s Florida International football program in ANY category, it can’t be good. Worst part is, that wasn’t even the glaring news coming from San Diego’s finest university on Tuesday.

Those of you who spend your time outside of LBS looking at news that actually matters to the real world probably saw that there was a major drug bust at State. 75 students were arrested as part of a 96 person raid. In “Operation Sudden Fall,” authorities confiscated “two kilograms of cocaine, about 350 ecstasy pills, marijuana, psychedelic mushrooms, hash oil, methamphetamines and illicit prescription drugs, as well as several guns and at least $60,000 in cash.” That’s probably enough for a few hours of partying right there. Many of the students were members of either the Theta Chi fraternity or Phi Kappa Psi. Man, sure glad I never joined either of those. One of the 96 arrested even had connections to a Mexican drug cartel. That’s pretty serious. So if you’re a fan of a crappy team, just remember it can be worse: you could be a fan of San Diego State.

    only you LB would link to fox news when actual reputable news agencies (cnn, abc, etc,) are covering the story. Anyway…those guys are idiots. Sending mass texts when you are moving that much product is straight up stupid….oh well I guess thats why they go to SDSU and not UCLA.

    are you kidding me, you call ABC and CNN reputable? Gimme a break. All news agencies slant coverage to the way they want it presented. David Brinkley years before on his Nightline show even commented on that. So get off of you bias, anywho why do ya think SDSU can never win in any sport. The students are worried about partying.

    Yes they screwed up, yes what they did was stupid but to blame just two houses and stated that many of the students arrested were from Theta Chi and Phi Kappa Psi is ludicrous. If you read some of the articles out there, only 6 members of Theta Chi were arrested and I believe 5 or less members of Phi Kappa Psi were arrested. Even still, I do have to say, that is a high number of kids from 2 frats arrested. They were dumb and stupid. I am not condoning them or anything, but I just want articles that are accurate as possible. Thank you
