Default 2 WVU players BUSTED

And after the two PSU player arrests.....

Two would-be West Virginia starters charged in theft
ESPN.com news services

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Two West Virginia University football players were arrested over the weekend and charged with transferring and receiving stolen property.

James Thomas, 18, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and Ellis Lankster, 21, of Whistler, Ala., were arrested early Sunday, Morgantown Police said in a news release.

Morgantown police didn't release any other details, but a police dispatcher who declined to give her name said Monday that the stolen property was a computer.

Coach Rich Rodriguez released a statement Sunday saying he was aware that Lankster, a junior defensive back, and Thomas, a redshirt freshman linebacker, had been involved in an off-campus situation.

"I am investigating at this time and will make the determination about their status within the football program after all the facts are in," Rodriguez said.

According to one report, both players were competing for starting spots and practicing with third-ranked West Virginia's first team.

Thomas is a 6-foot-2, 200-pound redshirt freshman linebacker whose father played linebacker for the Mountainers from 1994-95. Lankster, a 5-10, 190-pound cornerback who transferred from Jones County (Miss.) Junior College, enrolled in January.

Rodriguez recently announced that he had issued an 11 p.m. Saturday night curfew to keep players away from possible distractions.

Neither player participated in West Virginia's Fan Day activities Sunday.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

Didn't Chris Henry go to Michigan?

Looks like the local college sports teams have not been able to keep out of the news with stuff like this.

That's Chris Perry that you're thinking of that played at Michigan.

I see the selection process at WVU is still focused on talent over character.

Whoever said this isn't a pro-style program obviously hasn't drawn the parallels to the Bengals.

Two more reasons why I can't stand WVU...

Tom Brady needs to watch all the daughters he's.... "accrued" in the past few years.

In another year or two, those girls will be starting school... and with that become fair game for Chris Henry to buy them booze and try to take them back to his spaceship...



AAHH! Even when I know its there that picture scared the hell out of me everytime...

The Number one party school is....West Virginia University in Morgantown. Why? Just ask 22-year-old student Katie O'Hara who eagerly told The Associated Press, "No matter what kind of party you want it's here--bars, fraternities, house parties. ...If you want to take shots all night, there's a bar; no matter what you want to do, it's there."
