Texas A&M suspends QB Kenny Hill following arrest

Texas A&M has indefinitely suspended dual-threat quarterback Kenny Hill. Hill was arrested for public intoxication early Friday morning.

Whether or not Hill will be suspended for any playing time in the fall remains to be seen. For now, Hill will be kept out of all athletic activities according to Texas A&M policy, per a report by ESPN.com. That means the Aggies quarterback vying for the starting job this fall will miss practice time this spring for an undetermined amount of time.

Hill was taken into custody early Friday morning after being found laying outside a restaurant and bar in College Station. When asked who the current president of the United States was, Hill responded to police with “Bush.” Hill was released after posting bail Friday.

With Hill not able to practice with the rest of the Aggies, that opens the door a bit wider for other quarterbacks competing for the starting job. Matt Joeckel and Kyle Allen will likely lead a more drop-back style of offense in the meantime. Hill’s dual-threat ability was believed to make him stand out in the competition because he would be more likely to do some of the things on the field Johnny Manziel was able to do the past two seasons.

    Cops need to lighten up, and give footballers some professional courtesy.

    If he is good enough to start, this is the extent of the punishment he will receive. Opening day is a long way off, and all will be forgiven, once the season approaches. If he weren’t a football player and by virtue of that fact, in a highly visible position, and was just an ordinary student, this would not even be news. Drinking and student are synonymous and interchangeable. He certainly is not the first player to get caught intoxicated and surely will not be the last one, at any college. He just got caught this time.

    “Cops need to lighten up…..”

    What are they going to do, take away his scholarship?…When I was in college, I passed out once or twice and they didn’t kick me out of school. This is so no news and no, I’m not an Aggie follower or alum.

    Ha, Bush…that’s awesome.

    He’s apparently following Manziel’s footsteps in trying to become the starter. So maybe that’s good news?

    Rehab and modern history classes are in order for this young man on a list of “ideal spring activities”. I suspect this will be short lived and he’ll be back at practice in a matter of days…

    There are a lot of people trying to forget the current President.

    Not true at all. Everybody knows ummmm, what’s his name is president I am sure.

    Johnny Football out…Johnnie Walker in.

    Kyle Allen was the #1 high school QB prospect in the nation, and he enrolled at A&M in January.

    Wall, writing, and such as.

    Sergio Kindle drove his drunk ass into the side of an apartment building and then fled the scene.
    The Austin cops did nothing, and Mack Brown made him run the stadium steps for 5 minutes.

    But they won football games and nobody seemed to care, not even MADD.

    if this were Northwestern instead of A&M, he’d got canned.

    “if this were Northwestern instead of A&M, he’d got canned.”

    The Union would never allow that to happen.
