As long as he didn't kill a member of Saban's family, he'll be fine. Bam a and Auburn don't hold football players accountable. It's the Alabama way. They got nothing else to live for.

I personally don't smoke weed, but I just don't care if others do. Yes, I realize it's illegal in Alabama so technically it's a crime, but more states will legalize it over the coming years. Maybe conservative southern states won't, but I just don't get worked up over this kind of thing.

The only thing that matters is AC. If he had AC to work in then he's in trouble. If not all bets are off

There is nothing to see here, move your asses along. He will receive enhanced preparation to be an adult with Cochran and a few counselors for awhile. Stay tuned for Cotton & Cochran, Saturdays at 5am.

amazing that he hasn't failed a drug test.

Saban isn't a stickler on failed drug tests. I know he let one guy skate at LSU who failed 11 tests.
