Silly Season Part CXII
On Wednesday Tennessee dismissed standout cornerback Janzen Jackson from its football team, but lest you think team turmoil is limited to the Southeastern Conference, there’s this: Griz tight end Kavario Middleton was charged with DUI in June.
There are a couple things that strike you about the incident, which was originally reported by Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times: That is happened on June 6, but UM coach Robin Pflugrad apparently didn’t know the severity of it until Friday; and that Middleton’s arraignment is set for Sept. 3. That’s a Saturday, and it’s the date the Montana Grizzlies open their football season at Tennessee.
Condotta and I were both surprised to learn that Saturday morning arraignments are pretty commonplace, at least in Seattle.
More news will be reported as it arrives.
