Oh, Da’Rick, Da’Rick, Da’Rick.
Last week, we reported that after speaking to several people inside the University of Tennessee athletic and main university administration, the story that was given to us most consistently was that the star/troubled ex-receiver Da’Rick Rogers had been indefinitely suspended from UT’s football team for multiple failed drug tests.
A very small minority of folks accused us of making that information up. But the majority of you trusted us when we suggested two failed tests led to Rogers’ suspension and his departure — because he wasn’t going to sit (and might have had another suspension coming already).
For those few who didn’t believe us, maybe you’ll trust Rogers, who admitted the following while being introduced at Tennessee Tech yesterday:
“There were a couple of drugs tests. It wasn’t anything too crazy. It was about me being a young, immature guy, and those are things I’ve got to work on. I plan to do that.”
Here’s hoping for his sake he does. But if the past is any indicator, here’s betting he won’t.
