No. All 4 should be gone.
From the limited information we have, I would stay that he should be gone, but I think Coach Saban will do the right thing for the team and school. Let's wait an see.
Uh...what? He was asleep when the card was stolen. All he did was use it after the fact.
To me, it's cut and dry. If he knew the card was stolen (if I understand correctly, this is the case), show him the door. If he honestly had no idea, keep him.
I'd have to hear more before making a decision. First, he was asleep during the robbery. Where was he asleep? In his apt/dorm room? In the car? Second, this is his second arrest but under what circumstances did he use the ACT card? Was he given falso information on the nature of the card's obtainment and is there a plausible explanation as to why he would ignorantly think he wasn't stealing by using the card?
I agree all of them deserve an opportunity to turn their lives around. Just not as a scholarship athlete at Alabama.

He'll no I wouldn't keep him. Twice an offender, he's outta here.
I'm totally with you. If he knew the card was obtained after beating someone up, he's gone.
If he had no idea, and used the card only knowing it was stolen (this has been confirmed, i believe) it gets sticky. How much has he been in trouble (we only know the one charge), how remorseful is he, etc all play in. Maybe you don't boot him, but suspend him for half a season or a year.
And for those talking about how he hasn't panned out as a player, that should never factor in. If you use it to justify booting him, you are also just as much justifying keeping him if he played better. You can't ethically travel that road.
2 strikes and you're OUT! I hope he gets his head together and has a good career at UNA or Akron or wherever the hell Tiny Terry is coaching.
My feeling is that it's not a football issue. All four...including Calloway...should be expelled from the University, as should any other student who did the same thing. That having been said, if the University doesn't expel them, yeah, kick them off and revoke their scholarships. Including Calloway.

I think maybe you missed the point.

I trust CNS's decisions...he knows all about these guys, their backgrounds, support system, emotional & mental makeup and he cares about them. He'll do what's best for the program and handle it with dignity and class.

U must be an attorney. haha.
Calloway isn't any bargain. Remove the malcontents and viruses.
Hope Saban returns soon and cuts all 4.
..and get a police escort off campus
Based on the two arrests ONLY I'd probably give him another chance. What he has been arrested for is pretty minor stuff. Now if he's known to be a bad influence, been in Saban's doghouse, etc. we should probably part ways.
Fortunately CNS doesn't care about rushing to judgement to appease the modern mob mentality. He will do what's right when he feels its the right time.

I would let him go. He used up his strikes after the weed bust.
I have no idea if he knew the method that ACT card was obtained by. But as he admitted and is clear from any ACT card with an ID on it, he knew it was stolen. He knew that and used the thing anyway no matter how small a purchase he made.
No. Too bad he wasn't let go the first time.
