God, give me patience today. If given strength I may beat someone to death.
I thought these nuggets, posted by BamaK over at AlabamaIntel were interesting. This was not the first time these players had been in trouble and the Bama coaching staff was well aware that they had issues.
"Unfortunately, the four kids were already headed down the path which has led to three of them excluding Calloway, having been removed from the UA campus due to the allegations being a Felony. All four are likely gone which is expected. I was thrown for a loop like most of you on Eddie Williams but from what am now told,
not UA's infrastructure. Evidently, the kid has been a "problem child" since arriving in T-town and all attempts to reach out to him couldn't change the underlying issues. DJ Pettway brought a pattern from past incidents where he was considered the leader with other former Teammates such as Duron Carter, etc. to a situation that affected the entire Team when, on an away Game, he and Tyler Hayes set off a Fire Alarm in the Team Hotel because of their smoking next to a smoke detector in their room. The pitiful AU community is enjoying Calloway's fall but his guardian, Peaches, has to be in agony. Hopefully, they'll get the message before it gets worse."
My personal take is that EW knew he was going to be gone after the weapons incident, and as ringleader for the mayhem, ended up taking several others down with him.
Like one of my professors always said, "If you want to smell like roses, hang around with roses. If you want to smell like $hit, hang around with $hit."

I hate it for all of the kids but they brought it on themselves. As far as Hayes, it is known that he has had issues with drugs (just marijuana as far as I know) in his past. A lot of people were wondering how long he would make it before this got him kicked off the team, but it looks like it was something else. BTW- no police records on Hayes, just common knowledge that he partook.
Makes you wonder if all 4 of these guys made a habit of doing things together that led to this.
Just my 2 cents and now we roll on!
The Dynasty is Here!
