Colquitt has a Serious Problem & it Should be Addressed Immediately

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on February 18, 2008

At first I was going to make this a humorous post however after reviewing the facts there’s nothing humorous about this.

Britton Colquitt has a serious problem and when a Tennessee player has a problem so does Coach Fulmer.

Tennessee junior All-SEC punter Britton Colquitt will be suspended the Vols’ first five games this season and will lose his scholarship following an arrest early Sunday morning on charges of DUI and leaving the scene of an accident.

“I’m very disappointed that Britton doesn’t appreciate the blessings he has been given from his family and his team,” UT coach Phillip Fulmer said in a statement released Sunday night. “Along with the five-game suspension, I am taking his scholarship away and he will be required to undergo alcohol counseling as well as other internal punishments.”

Not good enough! This is the fourth alcohol-related incident for Colquitt since arriving on the campus of UT. Clearly this needs to be addressed by coaches, players and his parents. I feel the only way he will learn is to boot him off the team.

Colquitt while driving his Jeep Cherokee hit a freaking parked car and then kept driving. The Knoxville Po Po caught him about a mile away. Colquitt admitted to have two beers, three mixed drinks and hitting the parked Ford Focus as well as a tree stump.

In 2003, UT police charged Britton Colquitt three times in 12 days on alcohol-related charges, including DUI and underage consumption.

His first DUI charge was dismissed by a Knox County General Sessions Court judge in August 2004.

Colquitt is the sixth UT football player charged by police since Jan. 11 and the second to be hit with a DUI charge in a little over two weeks.

If Fulmer doesn’t boot him off the team then at least coordinate an intervention with his parents. Clearly he needs help and I’ll admit supporting him is not a bad idea, but forcing him to go too counseling will not work. Colquitt can only change when he is ready to.

Brady Quinn Is Implicated in Gay Bashing Incident, Rather Ironic Don’t You Think?

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on February 18, 2008

Brady Quinn the future of the Cleveland Browns has decided to alienate the majority of his entire fan base. Quinn is accused of being apart of a group of men shouting insults at gay passers-by outside a Columbus bar early on New Year’s Day.

At 2:25 AM Seth Harris made a call to 911 and reported that he encountered the group in front of La Fogata Grill at 790 North High St. The Mexican restaurant is next door to the Union Cafe Bar + Food, one of Columbus’ most popular gay bars.

On the 9-1-1 call, Harris said that “Brady Quinn from the Browns” was “trying to cause a fight.” Harris told the operator, “I just walked outside and he exchanged many profanities with me and called me a faggot, of course.”

Harris has also confirmed these allegations in person as well.

“I knew who it was,” he said. “It wasn’t just directed at me, there were other people around, too.”

Quinn denies the incident even happened.

“At no time that night was I involved in a verbal or physical altercation, nor did I have any interaction with the police,” Quinn said in the statement. “I want to be clear that I did not engage in any of the alleged conduct, nor did I make inappropriate comments to anyone.

.

“Any allegations to the contrary are either untrue or the result of misidentification.”

However, the Columbus Po Po are claiming another version of the truth. They state a Columbus police spokeswoman said officers arrived several minutes after Harris’ call and found Quinn in the midst of an argument with 32-year-old Jason Thompson.

“I don’t believe there were any punches being thrown — it was more verbal than anything,” said Columbus police spokeswoman Amanda Ford.

.

“When we got there, he was very cooperative and just stopped,” Ford said of Quinn’s encounter with police. “I think his friends were like, ‘Let’s get out of here.’ ”

Could it be that Quinn was hanging out in a gay area for a reason? And somebody recognized him and he shouted some slurs in an attempt to cover up his gayness?

Brady Quinn was hailed as the “next Bernie” when he was drafted…fairly local boy, grew up a Browns fan, coming to Cleveland to turn the Browns into a playoff contender. His actions since waking up on Draft Day:

He pouted and acted like a baby when Joe Thomas was taken in front of him, showing relief but not NEARLY the excitement that Bernie did on becoming a Cleveland Brown.

He was chastised by Joe Theismann for his pouting, and also for his bed-head the day of the draft, saying that neither Notre Dame fans nor Cleveland fans want to look at someone who hasn’t had a haircut in months.

He held out and missed camp because he wanted more money which is inexcusable.

He played one game, pouting often because he wasn’t getting more playing time when Anderson (who didn’t hold out) was winning.

The Browns issued a statement backing Quinn, their former first-round draft pick who played in just one game as a rookie.

“We are aware of the alleged comments made by Brady Quinn, which the Browns take seriously,” the club’s statement said. “After speaking with Brady and his representatives we find these reported accusations without merit.
