Well, not all of them, just a very healthy percentage.
Janzen Jackson, Michael Edwards and Nu’Keese Richardson, all 18, were charged this morning after an armed robbery attempt at a Pilot station on Cumberland Avenue, according to the Knoxville Police Department.
Each player faces three counts of attempted armed robbery.
UT Athletic Director Mike Hamilton released a statement this morning about the episode.
“At this time we are currently evaluating the circumstances surrounding an incident involving Mike Edwards, Janzen Jackson and Nu’Keese Richardson,” Hamilton said. “Any decisions or comments regarding their status will not be made until the evaluations are complete.”
Both Richardson and Jackson are coming off a week in which they faced discipline from Vols coach Lane Kiffin, the former for missing a practice and the latter for a violation of team rules.
Kiffin has touted the discipline in his program and a clean arrest record as recently as Wednesday’s SEC teleconference.
Well, CLK, now’s your chance to make an example of these thugs. Your predecessor, the Great Pumpkin, would find some reason to keep these three on the team – at least, that is, if they were going to contribute. Kick these pieces of trash of the team and off campus and set the right tone for this program going forward.
Jackson was going to be the next Eric Berry, what a stupid asshole. What a trio of stupid assholes.
