Longhorn Moron

First the Longhorns beat the Trojans on the field, and now they're trying to keep up with USC off the field as well. Texas running back Ramonce Taylor was arrested on Sunday when sheriff's deputies found a backpack containing around five pounds of marijuana in Taylor's car.

Taylor, who scored a touchdown in the Rose Bowl and 15 TDs last season, had been "excused from the team" to focus on academics. According to head coach Mack Brown, in light of the most recent charges, "At this time we will not consider reinstating him to the team."

The story of Taylor's arrest isn't exactly ordinary. It includes a fight involving around 100 people, a pecan farm, and a call to police by Taylor himself. In the most important weigh-in of his life, Taylor, who also had a live 40-caliber round of ammunition in the car, could face up to 20 years if the bag of pot weighs over five pounds. If it ends up being under five pounds, he only faces a maximum of two years.

Ricky has been skirting around the issue for years, lets hope he taught RT a thing or two and he had the usual: 4 lb. 15.5 oz.

Seriously though, WTF was he thinking having that much weed and then telling the cops to go ahead and search the car. Retard.

Good point, Anon: if you know you have the weed, you don't let them search the car. Then again, hopefully - for him - the reason for the lapse in judgement was b/c he was smoking just enough of his stash to get under the 5lb limit.

The offseason is getting to be as entertaining as Saturdays in the fall. Does Vegas have odds on the weigh in? Or on the school that will bring forth the next football player who will ruin a potential pro career through jaw-dropping stupidity?
I'll go with ND, just because that would make it funnier.
