Tennessee troika: Have arrest, won't travel

In a move that will come as a surprise to exactly no one, the three Tennessee players arrested early Thursday morning have not made the travel roster for the Volunteers’ game at Ole Miss Saturday.

Safety Janzen Jenkins, wide receiver Nu’Keese Richardson and defensive back Mike Edwards will be sitting at home — or, in Richardson’s case, behind bars if he doesn’t post bail — as their teammates travel to Oxford for the game with the Rebels.

None of the three charged with three counts of attempted armed robbery have officially been suspended by the football program.

As for Richardson, the Associated Press reported this afternoon that he had not yet posted a $19,500 bond and remains jailed.  Edwards has posted his bond of the same amount, while Jackson was released on his own recognizance.

    this story could not get any better for me, after mr. righteous tells the world how his team is full of stand up guys that have no off the field issues(nice attempt at a dig against florida) but what laney doesnt realize is that winning makes everything go away, but being an arrogant, pompous ass before you’ve ever even won a game sticks in people’s minds……especially when your players are committing ARMED ROBBERY

    So, who is Janzen Jenkins?

    Nu’Keese knew he’d be off the travel roster this weekend anyway so he decided to stay in jail and play “wide receiver” for his cellmate Bruno (probably a former Gator).
    No one bailing him out is most likely the result of his family not having any assets due to using them up with Nu’s previous run ins with the law. Or maybe they decided cooling his hoofees jail would be a better attention getter than rushing to his rescue.
    Our youngest son found out the hard way that all the benefits of sitting in jail for an extended period of time is a prime attention getter when we didn’t post a $2,000 bond after his 3d arrest in 3 weeks. He has not seen the inside of a jail cell since that extended stint because according to his new wisdom – “I get it now, jail is NOT some place I ever want to go again.”

    Well, you can’t stereotype all the good people of Tennessee by the people involved in this story–and that’s a good thing for the good people of Tennessee. Reading your posts about the players, their female accomplice, and the victims, one would think the good people of Tennessee are all several pennies short of a nickel. Lane was so busy chasing publicity he lost sight that college coaches have two responsibilities–not only to win games but to shape lives. In that respect, he doesn’t appear to be the man for the job.
    John, I leave CFT for a few days and you bring in reinforcements–were the other fans giving you that much trouble? Welcome to the newbies, but I hope you’ll be the one writing about the SEC. You’re the only reason I stop by :-)

    Regardless, Florida still leads college football in arrests, with many of those being FELONIES and Nukeese Richardson was going to UF until Tennessee swooped in and took him during his last visit there. God, I wish he would have gone to UF. Fits right in.
