Sunday Morning Quarterback

Sunday Morning Quarterback

The week in eligibility-crippling issues - legal, academic, institutional and otherwise...

SATED, SMQ's long-running desire to include in some capacity the sensationally backwoods moniker of Jim Bob Cooter, when the Tennessee backup quarterback was arrested last Saturday and suspended from the Vols indefinitely Monday on a drunken driving charge. Phil Fulmer avoided The Rap Sheet's new "Mistakes Watch," instead emphasized the embarassment to Jim Bob's family:

"Jim Bob has let the team down and embarrassed himself and his family by his actions," Fulmer said. "He has benefited greatly by being part of the Tennessee family, and with that comes great responsibility for his actions."

Previously, he was its pride by being the first Cooter in grad school (he earned hisself a fancy degree last month). Cooter will miss the opener against California, which has should have about zero effect on Tennessee's performance.

The mortified Cooter clan: "You'll never be able to show yer face in Lincoln Cownee agin, boy."

CONTINUING the embodiment of age-old stereotypes that continue to taint the sensitive psyche of the Deep South, Gary Mustain, father of Arkansas alpha recruit Mitch Mustain, was arrested and temporarily jailed after a child support hearing on Monday. Gary'll be back in court July 5, after paying $2,500 to get outta the pokey Monday night, which he'll be able to pay back in spades - with his son's generosity - in about four years.

STILL in the SEC, Alabama lost two players for unrelated and unspecified purposes Monday when strong safety Curtis Keys was suspended for the always mysterious team rules - not revelaed whether these were the same broken rules that got him suspended fro the Cotton Bowl - and cornerback Travis Robinson decided to leave the university. Keys has a history of problems along these lines, getting suspended from his high school in Louisiana before his senior year for partaking of the demon weed and subsequently being forced to sit out that season after he moved to Alabama.

ORDERED, to perform 40 hours of community service, former Colorado offensive lineman Clint O'Neal, who was charged in December with "ethnic intimidation" for sending a racially charged e-mail along with his girlfriend to a Hispanic student-athlete at CU:

O'Neal and his former girlfriend Jackie Zeigle, a runner for Colorado, were ticketed in December after Zeigle's teammate Greg Castro received a message calling him a "river rat" and "border hopper," according to police reports. The message was traced back to an account held by O'Neal, police said.

Another message was sent from the same account to cross country athlete Stephen Pifer, a biracial friend of Castro's, telling him to "stick with your own kind," police said.

O'Neal and Zeigle are white.

Zeigle, 21, pleaded guilty to ethnic intimidation in March and received the same sentence as Castro. She told police she sent the messages because she felt harassed by Castro, and Pifer had humiliated her sister by breaking up with her in public.

O'Neal recently signed a free-agent deal with, appropriately, the Redskins.

DECLARED, ineligible, Anquan Boldin's brother, Wake Forest receiver Demir, and Demon Deac cornerback Brandon Ghee, both for faulty academics. Ghee, a redshirt freshman who has an older brother playing himself - though its Wake safety Patrick Ghee rather than an NFL Pro Bowler - wasn't expected to play much, if at all, other than special teams, but Boldin is a hulking (5-11, 220 pounds) receiver who caught 15 passes last year and was second team after the Spring. In the wake of Marcus Randle El's December arrest, it's been a rough offseason for ex-college quarterbacks turned star pro receivers.
