Lane Kiffin lowers the hammer on prized recruit WR Nu'Keese Richardson and DE Mike Edwards for their roles in an ALLEGED attempted armed robbery.
"After extensive and thorough research of the situation over the last four days and considering various disciplinary options, I've decided it's in the best interest of our program to remove Nu'Keese and Mike," Kiffin said. " ...Our student-athletes must be responsible members of society, and this type of conduct will not be tolerated."
Gentlemen, Jacksonville State waits with open arms if you manage to beat the system.
As for DB Janzen Jackson, Kiffin is waiting for "additional information" before making his decision, though he's apparently still not allowed at team activities for the time being. That's not really a surprise; all indications are that Jackson, the most productive of the three players, was not as deeply involved in the ALLEGED attempted armed robbery as his teammates, if he was involved at all.
And so we continue to gather evidence that Lane Kiffin is not Phil Fulmer -- and that, in some ways, that's a good thing.
