On Tuesday Baylor head coach Art Briles announced that wide receiver Josh Gordon has left the Baylor program.

"Circumstances have unfolded for Josh that require him to pursue his collegiate degree and athletic career at a different university," Briles said in a statement. "I'm appreciative of the efforts he has made the past two seasons for this football program." 

Gordon had been arrested last October for marijuana possession after being found with it inside a car at a Taco Bell near the Baylor campus. He had been suspended indefinitely since July for violating team rules.

Gordon finished the 2010 season as Baylor's second leading receiver, finishing the year with 42 receptions for 714 yards and 7 touchdowns. He also led the Big 12 in yards per reception at 17.0 yards. Which leaves Baylor with one less big-play threat on offense this season.

He's reportedly considering a transfer to Utah.

Come on over to Utah, Josh. We would love the big play ability that you have. 
Coach Whit would have a short leash, but you would be welcomed with open arms.

It's that whole Homeland Security Border crackdown thing.  Gotta go where you are incognito and your stash ain't in jeopardy.  Utah might fit the bill!!!

Ugh!

Bad news for Baylor.  They were really starting to turn things around, too.  Robert Griffin is a Heisman candidate, but this will definitely hurt both him and the team.

Baptists don't have any tolerance for pot-heads.  Although I admire Art Briles for his integrity.

This is huge news.  Baylor will be 9th in the Bog 12 now instead of 8th.
