I'm assuming most of us agree that absent some new info the other 3---Williams for sure--have to be gone. That said, based on the info we have as we understand it...he admits to using a stolen Act card. Would you dismiss him???? If not, what would you recommend for punishment???
no....hes already been arrested before
process him IMO
I think Saban will suspend him a few games.
All 4 need to be gone...it would set a bad precedent otherwise
Needs to be gone. Been in trouble ever since he got to UA
I really don't want to hear his story. I've hear enough about him already from other students that makes me skeptical. Haven't heard any positives since signing day---
On the business end of things, if he does not get in trouble, he should transfer IMO if he wants more playing time other than special teams and some HB. He doesn't have the speed or any size at RB. On his few carries, think the average fan can tell. His hands are ok, but don't see him developing into the Smelley role. Defense, he looked lost when that experiment was in effect. I think the scouts missed on his 5* ranking, regardless of position.
I believe BC has been in trouble before so my opinion would be dismiss him.
I have no idea. Suspension allows those who will decide an opportunity to make an informed decision.
Losing doesn't make me want to quit. It makes me want to fight that much harder-Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant
I still think it's unclear what BC did. Yes I know he used at card that wasn't his. But what he knew about the card, what he was told about etc etc is not yet known. He has been in trouble before further complicating his status but BC is a wait and see what comes out. As for the other three I can't imagine them remaining with the program based on what they have apparently already admitted.
He admits to using a card that he knew was stolen in a robbery to make multiple purchases. If I was the body in charge of student discipline, I would entertain his story but without knowing more I would lean towards suspending him from school for a year. What a dumbass he was! He didn't partake in the actual and had almost nothing to gain but was too stupid in this case not to stay out of it.
The collateral damage to that would certainly end his football career at UA.
I think the guys who really know this kid, his past and how everything really happened are in a better position to make this decision than me.
Like I said before, and eventhough I know more downvoted will come my way again, I hope all these young men get a chance to turn their lives around!
Based strictly on what we know now all 4 should go IMO.

No. Even if this was his first arrest, I would say he needs to go.
Cut off the hand that offended.

Cut ties with all four . . . a clean, surgical cut.
All 4 will not see the field again for Alabama. Keeping anyone of these 4 will cast a shadow on the program that other programs would use against us in recruiting. CNS would never allow that to happen.
1) he is obviously an idiot, as he has proven pretty much from day one
2) he isn't very good -- after 2 years, still has no identifiable role on the team. Isn't even all that effective on ST.
3) he isn't very physical -- I mean, even in the robbery, he just let Eddie do the dirty work and then used the card to buy...Funyuns?

Calloway was suspended last year for skipping class. Add that with his other two arrest...kid needs to go.
I agree with you jimtom
And that's all we need to know, sadly. If he found the card on the ground and bought some drinks with it, then he's guilty of being young and dumb. But if by his own admission he knew that his teammates beat up people to get the card? Done.
Pis on them all. They deserve jail. We don't need idiots on our team.
All 4 gone
