Texas suspends Christian Scott for three games

Earlier this month Texas safety Christian Scott was suspended indefinitely by the team after being arrested for assault. Scott assaulted Jeanne Somers Doyle while she was in the process of repossessing his car, dragging her from the vehicle and throwing her to the ground before speeding away in his car.

Scott pleaded no contest to the charges and has now been reinstated to the team, though he'll be forced to sit out the first three games of the season.

“We’re disappointed any time once of our players makes a poor decision, and Christian understands he made a mistake,” said head coach Mack Brown in a statement. “He has taken responsibility, is accepting the consequences of his actions and has returned to the team. He will be working with the scout team until he is eligible to play.”

Along with missing the team's first three games, Scott has been given two years of deferred adjudication. Which means that he could suffer some serious consequences should he be arrested again during the next two years. He's also been sentenced to 40 hours of community service, will have to attend a stress management course and pay restitution to Doyle and pay for court costs.

I'm not a fan of either team but Broyles had the privilege of a redshirt year thanks to his stupidity after getting arrested and suspended. Of course most people don't want facts to get in the way of their deception. I think Mack is grasping at straws right now after last year and he is really feeling the pressure to win this year. Scott's actions are despicable

Hmmm....I thought Broyles got suspended for a year? Stay classy Texas. Let a woman beater back on the team right before the OU game. I will say this. I didnt think the UT defense knew how to hit anyone. I was wrong.

You think any other school or coach wouldn't do the same thing? To all of these OU fans calling out Mack Brown, what would Stoops do?
Do any of you guys honetly believe if Ryan Broyles comitted a misdemeanor, Stoops would just cut him from the team?


I can answer that here:   

   

Oh and stay classy OU fans:

Yes, we have to worry about being the NUMBER 1 RANKED team in the NATION!! Meanwhile, Texas is concerned with just making a low level bowl. Oh yeah, is Vince Young still in the league??

Now that I think about it, didn't Bobino get knocked out by Roger Huerta recently for beating up a woman on 6th street? This is starting to become an ugly trend down there.

Ummm...what happened to Sergio Kindle when he ran his car into an apartment building at 2AM and left the scene of an accident? I think he already had 2 previous DUI's and I am sure he was drinking again. Oh that is right, he was texting. I think this was the year they went to the national title against Bama. Nothing happened. Win at all cost Mack Brown. When you go 5-7, lose to the Baylor's, Iowa States, and the rest of the cellar dwellers. Mack isnt kicking anyone off the team.
