If it was widely known he was abusing drugs while at Utah, should we be surprised the Ute coaches didn't suspend him? Or just another look the other way sort of thing from coaches on the hill?

Yeah, I did kind of wonder how it was well known he (at age 18 mind you. Nothing is legal for him) had substance abuse problems at the U, but never got in trouble with the law or the team.


Sports Are Great and Vladhagen, without proof (failed drug tests), there wasn't really grounds for suspension.

@Sports are Great,

You are going to have to do a lot better than that. Tell me when and what players did Utah Coaches in any sport "looked the other way". Or are you so blinded by your dislike for Utah that you will make up anything and state it on this board?

RE: Sports are Great

If it was widely known he (the punky QB who played for the Bears) was abusing alcohol while at BYU, should we be surprised the Cougar coaches didn't suspend him? Or just another look the other way sort of thing from coaches in the bubble?

Bad apples everywhere...be careful with blanket accusations.

Yeah guys, you're only allowed to go back to 1984. Don't you know the rules?

Utah fans are grasping at straws trying to equate underage drinking with using illegal drugs.

The strange Utah sports relevancy timeline:

Nothing before 2004 counts in football, except for Utah's ancient, leather helmet era wins against BYU's club team.

Nothing since 2005 counts in basketball.
