Mack Brown ‘disappointed’ in Sanders’ DWI; discipline to be handled internally

Kendall Sanders AP

As you’ve probably read by now, Texas wide receiver Kendall Sanders was arrested early Saturday morning on a drunk-driving charge. The incident was the second legal issue for a Longhorns receiver this offseason, the first coming courtesy of Cayleb Jones, who was charged with felony assault after allegedly breaking the jaw of a UT tennis player.

While Jones’ alleged actions resulted in an indefinite suspension, the same cannot be said for Sanders… right now. In a statement released Sunday morning, Longhorns coach Mack Brown said he was and “disappointed” in Sanders’ decision to get behind the wheel of a vehicle while intoxicated, but did not elaborate on any sort of punishment for the sophomore-to-be; rather, Brown explained he would continue to monitor the situation to gather more details.

“We’re aware of Kendall’s situation, have talked with him and his family, and are disappointed any time one of our players is accused of wrongdoing. We take a strong stance against drinking and driving and will continue to monitor this situation to get more details,” the statement read. “Following the completion of the legal process, we will do what’s best for The University, Kendall and the team. One thing we have great pride in about our program is our family atmosphere and there also will be discipline handled within our family.”

Sanders was booked, as fate would have it, by Texas A&M police at 5:10 a.m. Saturday morning and released a couple of hours later on a $3,000 bond. As a true freshman in 2012, Sanders caught two passes for 15 yards. He was competing for a starting job for the Horns this upcoming season.

    It appears that as Texas has slipped from national prominence over the last few years their off the field troubles have spiked upward!

    Mack Brown’s Longhorns are having problems on and off the field—-is the common denominator = Mack Brown the problem?

    “One thing we have great pride in about our program is our family atmosphere and there also will be discipline handled within our family.”

    3 arrests since February, Cleve Bryant dismissed for sexual harrassment, Bev Kearney fired for having an ongoing relationship with one of her athletes, Major Applewhite sexes up a female trainer for the football team and gets a raise and a promotion.

    Wow, that’s some kind of family.

    Texas A&M police – – because all of the area police departments were working together to keep drunk drivers off the road. Everybody knows you have to have a designated driver to drive out of Chili fest.

    I did some pretty stupid things as a kid, but I was never an elite athlete that received coaching and advice from a team of athletic department personnel either. At first you think: ah, just a kid being a kid. But then you realize, these kids actually SHOULD know better, if for no other reason they’re protected by a family of university people assigned to do that very thing… protect them from themselves.

    Where is that user known as tgaustin now?

    And let’s not forget (Rape)Case McCoy who is still on the team after being accused of sexual asault, and whose alibi was “I only filmed it.”

    The University of Texas is without morals at any level of their athletic programs.

    Just so we’re clear about that.

    I would seriously tread lightly in the way you write things on this site my friend. Calling someone a “rapist” who was exonerated is ignorant to say the least you fool! You act as if Aggieland is the most innocent place in College Football. I guess you weren’t around for the Jackie Sherrill days…talk about morals is right.
    You see, here’s the real story about you, Goodshit. Your that blonde hair pony tailed, Michale Bolton clone from “Good Will Hunting” who doesn’t really have any thoughts of his own, just plagiarizes what he hears or reads. But this is typical of many aggie peeps. Hope you have been enjoying this beautiful Longhorn Austin weather we have been seeing lately, since you live here in Austin. Stay classy tool. You are collegefootballtalk’s one and only Delta Bravo(thak you Jim Rome)!

    No once have I ever denigrated you by calling you names, Mr. tgaustin. I have not tried to manufacture your handle into something a sticks and stones 14 year old would do.

    However, I will continue to bring facts to the table, ever chance I get. Facts about the here and now. I don’t care about the dying days of the SWC and Jackie Sherrill. He was a cheating tool and he got fired, right?

    However, the arrests on your team, and the obvious double standards as set forth by your coaching staff are an embarrassment to your university, right here, right now. Today.

    And I’m just going to continue to pile onto your university (and you) at every opportunity when your university (and you) continue to insult the entire State of Texas.

    Quit while you’re behind, please.
