Everett and Bomar

So, about a week ago, I flamed a few guys on gopokes.com who were being harsh on Bomar for getting a MIP. Well, ladi – freakin – da. I realize the 21 year old drinking age law was put into place to protect blithering idiots from hurting others and themselves. Well, get over it, almost every underage college student drinks alcohol. Live with it. Somehow mankind survived quite a long time without the assistance of the 21 year old drinking age, and high school and college students are going to continue to break the law, and everything in the US is going to be A – OK.

Now onto Everett. Did he really let the cop into his apartment when he had a compressed block of pot sitting on the TV. What a freakin idiot. At least make an attempt to hide it.

Now here is the dilemma. (Please notice the cut & paste) I realize the criminalization of marijuana was put into place to protect blithering idiots from hurting others and themselves. Well, get over it, almost every college student has at least tried it.

I am all for decriminalization of pot, but as long as it is illegal, you must pay the consequences if you get caught. Well, you have to pay the consequences unless you are an athlete.

But onto bigger questions:

1) Did I catch wind of this before the daily Oklahoman did?
2) Did Kelvin Sampson know about Everett’s law problems, when he started him in the NCAA tournament?

  • I wonder if Everett ever played a game high. Remember that Villanova guy who was high on cocaine?

  • No big surprise, but the Daily Oklahoman still has not covered the Everett - Marijuana story. It has only been 10 days.

    Everett's 1st offense was dropped last year, and if he were a junior, I would have expected the same with this offense. However, no elgibility left might mean that the Norman PD can somehow mount a case against Everett.

    Is there anyone that thinks Sampson didn't know about Everett's problems when he started him in the NCAA tournament?

  • It is all beginning to make sense now. Sampson knew he was leaving OU, so he didn’t care about the repercussions of his actions. I smell lack of institutional control.

    I was really beginning to like Sampson, I am sad to see him go to Indiana. I am sure most Hoosiers are also sad to see him go to Indiana.
