Backup Longhorns QB arrested on alcohol-related charges

Connor Brewer AP

While the following off-the-field incident is minor, so to speak, in comparison to what Texas offensive coordinator Major Applewhite did with a student in 2009 — and what he could potentially be facing as a result — it’s nevertheless added to a bad 24 hours for the Longhorns program.

Per multiple outlets, redshirt freshman quarterback Connor Brewer was arrested by UTPD overnight for public intoxication and minor in possession. He was booked into Travis County jail at 2:49 a.m.

“We’re aware of Connor’s situation, are disappointed anytime one of our players is accused of wrongdoing,” Mack Brown said in a statement. “We’ve talked with his family and will continue to monitor the situation.

“We’ve always prided ourselves in our program’s family atmosphere, and this will be handled within our family.”

A four-star member of Texas’ 2012 signing class, Brewer redshirted this past season and sat behind David Ash and Case McCoy.

    College kid being a college kid. Poor guy/poor family. How does this become national news?

    The Texas football program is in shambles with discipline problems everywhere among players, coaches and administrators. If the trustees were smart they would get rid of the President, the AD and the Head Coach.

    Been there done that when I was 19. Pay a fine and court cost and you get a year of unsupervised probation. Basically you don’t do anything for a year then you can apply to have it stricken from your record. The cops must have been really bored (mine was in a small town) or he did something stupid or cocky to get their attention.

    Gator, are you talking about Connor Brewer’s being poor? Trust me his family is very wealthy and will get him out of trouble.

    Brewer has brothers that play pro baseball and his family does very well for its self.

    Book ’em! Minor compared to last few years of player indiscretions….Mack needs to plug the holes off the field too.

    Amazing that all these stories come out a few days before national signing day. Are they just trying to make Coach February look bad (worse)? How about some articles about other programs? Timing is very suspicious.

    Was not talking about the wealth of him. I meant it’s unfortunate they have to have this story played nationwide. Goes for all these college athletes.

    A college student that drinks…the horror!!!

    Different note (and I’m sure the ones that approve comments won’t let this pass, but I’ll still try), sign my White House petition saving wasteful money with the simple idea of getting rid of the penny and nickel! That’s one thing we can all agree on right lol?

    I’ve been a lifelong longhorn fan BUT with the way the three major sports teams have played the last few years and then with the $hit happening the last few months, I think it’s time to call it quits and move on.

    Not a big deal, but all these things adding up don’t look good for Mack Brown. Brown is already on the hot seat and when your program is constantly in the news it gives the appearance, justified or not, that you don’t have control of the program.

    Winning cures almost everything, but when you not, it’s only a matter of time before the big donors get tired of hearing these stories.

    I ultra-LMFAO when I see the arrest of a college student arrested for – (gasp) – an alcohol offense result in the call for every senior official in the UT program’s resignation.

    WTF?!?!?! Dude – go watch golf.

  13. kattykathy says: Feb 2, 2013 11:41 PM

    The other UT sure does have some issues.
    A head coach that is better suited for coaching Pop Warner.
    Recruiters that can only bring in overrated talent
    A greedy AD that thinks he can create the next ESPN.
    And half the team can’t stay out of jail

    How dare this 2nd rate school continue to embarrass Oklahoma’s conference.

    How dare this 2nd rate school adopt a 1st rate school’s original UT

    Lance Armstrong says thanks

    I shamelessly stole the below line from someone.

    “Mack recruits good kids that (bang) graduate (assistants)” .

    As bad as Texas QBs played this year, if I couldn’t crack the lineup it would drive me to drinking too.

  17. lasseter1113 says: Feb 3, 2013 9:39 AM

    When it rains it pours….

  18. cubano76 says: Feb 3, 2013 9:58 AM

    Who cares. He’s a college kid. It happens.

  19. bigdinla says: Feb 3, 2013 1:36 PM

    This is exactly why the drinking age needs to be 18 again. Old enough to go to war, old enough to got to jail, but not to buy a beer is ridiculous!

  20. mazblast says: Feb 4, 2013 1:23 AM

    He wasn’t busted just for possession, but also for public intoxication. He must have opened his big jock yap, playing the “Do you know who I AM?” card to some tired campus cop who probably said, “That’s IT, I have had ENOUGH cr** from these kids.”
