Tide offensive GA reportedly arrested


Normally, offseason shenanigans are limited to players, but as Alabama offensive grad assistant Derrick Crudup Jr showed — allegedly — that’s not always the case. reports that Crudup was arrested on May 22 in Jackson, Ala., and charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Jackson Police Chief Charles Burge told the website Crudup was initially stopped for a traffic violation but was found to be in possession of “less than a gram” of marijuana.

A school spokesperson would only confirm to that the school was “aware of the situation and will take the appropriate action at the appropriate time.” The Jackson police department was also unable to add any additional information.

Crudup Jr. is the son of former Oklahoma and NFL quarterback Derrick Crudup. He  played at Miami from 2000-04 and backed up QB Ken Dorsey on Miami’s 2002 BCS championship team.

    Saban runs a tight ship. A little too much Rasta weed, call Crudup gone, for he’ll be leaving.

    Get rid him now!! This isn’t the Univ of Georgia where players and coaches are arrested every week….Saban won’t stand for it.

    Sure Saban runs a tight ship but still being the skipper he can`t keep an eye on everyone.Weed is so common anymore among young and old who really knows who has an ounce on them while going out.Smoking is a no no on any team and players / coaches will get the boot.I wouldn`t be ripping on Georgia or any team now because its Bama in the news not Georgia.Saban will fire him,to bad it was such a great job to lose Derrick,better go back to school for another degree.

    Was he impaired? If not, is this worse than if he’d had a fifth of tequila in the car?

    The difference in Saban and Richt is Saban will dump a player or coach for a violation such as this. Richt keeps them. But then Richt doesn’t have the depth of talent as Saban. I agree that smoking pot isn’t a big deal but it is still illegal and until it’s legalized a player or coach needs to know it will not be tolerated.

    No it’s not as bad but the difference is the tequila is legal and the pot isn’t….yet.

    Then legalize the pot.

    And that’s coming from someone who doesn’t touch either alcohol or pot. But alcohol is responsible for a lot of tragic problems in our society while pot is responsible for clogging up our courts and prisons with minutia.

    I agree…it should be legalized as alcohol is MUCH worse. I asked one policeman what he thought about pot versus alcohol and he said he had never gone to a domestic violence situation where pot was involved as it was always alcohol.

    So true. I’m not a pot advocate, but we as a society spend a fortune trying pot-related cases and housing people jailed for minor pot-related offenses. And that’s one reason we haven’t got the resources to house violent offenders. We need to rearrange our priorities.

    Saban can’t be too hard on the young man, his own son was kicked out of middle school for the same thing.

  12. jesuscakes says: May 30, 2012 2:08 PM

    His own son also does blow.

    By the way. Less than a gram of weed is enough to get high once. Ridiculous.

    Thank you, foreverlsu. We can always count on the Tiger faithful to share these gossipy little tidbits about Saban. But whatever happens in his personal life doesn’t have a bearing on the decisions he has to make as a football coach.

    I agree in fact even if they should make pot legal it should be treated as booze.Players already getting a free ride in college and still screw up makes one wonder why not give that ride to a more deserving player in which players as these cause a team scholarships when kids get the boot.Very sad.
