Ok. St.’s leading returning WR with yet another legal issue

Apparently, Tracy Moore has become very familiar with the Stillwater Police Department over the past five months.

The Oklahoma State wide receiver was cited for public intoxication in March.  In early June, Moore was cited for “outraging public decency,” which amounted to taking a leak in an alley.

Late last week, Moore hit the citation trifecta.

Both Tulsa World and the Daily Oklahoman have reported that the receiver received a citation for suspicion of providing alcohol to a minor Friday.  The former paper provides the particulars:

Moore, 21, is accused of providing the alcohol outside Brown’s Bottle Shop in Stillwater.

After he spoke with the woman, who is younger than 21, he entered the store, Stillwater Police Capt. Randy Dickerson said Wednesday. When he came back outside, an alcohol enforcement officer saw him give the alcohol to the minor, Dickerson said.

Moore was taken to the Stillwater Jail, where he was cited on a municipal complaint and then released, records show.

For that incident, Moore has already been fined $549.  Add that to the fines for his two previous citations — $149 for being a drunk in public, $249 for being a urinator in public — and Moore has donated nearly $1,000 to the SPD coffers in less than half a year, which is about the most unselfish and civic-minded  thing a college football player could hope to do.

As of yet, Oklahoma State hasn’t publicly addressed Moore’s offseason missteps, although, to be fair, the head coach would probably scream something about his age relative to the player in question and the point would be lost anyways.

Last season, Moore caught 45 passes for 672 yards and four touchdowns.   Those totals lead all returning receivers for the Cowboys, and Moore figures to be a very important and experienced target for the true freshman OSU will start under center.

    Do the right thing coach,sit him down for a few games.Put him on a very short string.One more screw up and he is gone for the season.We know that wont happen.Winning football games is more important.This will be just another case of “he is just being a kid”Well its time kids woke up.He is or will be given to him a free education,let him do his part.Man up. To many football players today never go up.They have everything handed to them.Once the real world sets in,the end up in jail.Do the right thing coach,its time for you to Man up.

    Moore is a dumb ass. Everyone knows cops sit out in front a Brown’s. Furthermore, WTF are you doing? seriously WTF? I would almost suspend him from the team just for being that dumb.

    The jab at Gundy is a cheap shot. I don’t know if John Taylor is trying to be funny or if he is really that pathetic.

    Mike Gundy defended a kid that did everything right and was called out and personally attacked by a local reporter. She wasn’t critizing the players performance. She called him soft, weak, and a cry baby based on a factually untrue rumor.

    Why should reporter get to ridicule and tease anyone, let alone an unpaid student athlete, openly in the media. Especially if the basis for that ridicule isn’t true. If that point is lost on you, then maybe that says more about you, than it does coach Gundy.
