Talking Bull: A scandals *NOT* involving Penn State

SMU Football Player Fails To Pay Prostitute, Gets Robbed - From Our Editors -
One of the players, identified as Uchenna Nwabuike, told police he believed the person responsible for the thefts was an escort. The linebacker from Missouri City went on to tell authorities that he had, "made a deal with the suspect to have sex with her for $50."

You know, there are times where you just need to cut your losses. Coping to hiring a sex worker (a very scummy thing to do) means you not only lose your money but perhaps your scholarship and your freedom.

Speaking of behavior issues:

Devon Butler Leaves NIU Program: What The Heck Happened? - Hustle Belt
I don't think Butler did much different than lots of other prospective 21-year-olds. When you turn that age, you can finally legally drink, and you just go insane. Personally I have never understood this. When I turned 21 I went out to dinner with my parents and brought along my friend; then I went back to campus and played cards and board games and video games with some other friends. I didn't drink any alcohol and I haven't since. Never mind the fact that he threw a crazy party two days before he turned 21, which defeated the entire point of the ritual, but again, he's not the first college student guilty of this.

LB Devon Butler no longer part of the NIU football program - Red And Black Attack
Doeren sounds pretty harsh in his quotes towards Devon Butler. The whole situation sounds messy. Butler, having already been involved in a shooting that caused him to miss the season last year, is involved in yet another after hours party leaving him injured. This time he was stabbed, but came out ok this time with no serious injuries.

And something involving Penn State

Advice For Penn State's Bill O'Brien: Quit -
So, Coach, if you want to quit, I won't judge you. If I were you, I would have quit already. So here's a new "Bomani & Jones" to lend O'Brien moral support, whatever decision he chooses. And, to give him suggestions on what to do if Penn State tries to make him pay that reported $4 million buyout. Bill collectors aren't as scary as you may have heard.
