    Re: Four Bama football players arrested - was progress of Eddie Williams & B. Callowa

    Is Blinn Community College their next stop? Is this the pathway to the Barn (i.e. Cam)?

    Re: Any news on the progress of Eddie Williams and Brent Calloway?

    It's hard to figure out exactly what was going on here, since they like to arrest everyone present and sort out the rest later.

    The "good" news is that none of these guys are integral contributors (and obviously could have some maturity issues), but the bad news is that they were all elite prospects and with the exception of Eddie Williams (who was a 5 star) all were likely to be second on the depth chart. From a football standpoint, that is quality depth and it's not likely that these are the types of players that Saban would have wanted to replace. Having said that, if they are all guilty, you're better off without them around.

    Mostly, it's just sad for these kids. They are potentially throwing so much away, over what? Calloway seems the most likely to get off light, but this is a second offense, so I'm not sure you can keep him around. Eddie Williams seems like he is gone no matter what, since he is apparently facing multiple charges. I kind of hope for the sake of everyone else that he was the ringleader, but it's kind of hard to imagine any of these guys staying on campus after this.

    Before we throw any / all of these guys under the bus, let's wait to see what unfolds. It doesn't look good for them - the police don't routinely arrest 'high profile' people on charges that aren't solid - but the police aren't infallible. I suspect one or more will no longer be with the football program when all is said and done, but until we know more we need to be patient and not rush to judgement....

    I realize nobody's actually been charged yet, but unless the police have this all wrong, you'd have to think it's coming for one or more of the guys arrested.

    If / when that happens, I know I wouldn't want my child sharing a classroom or dorm with a guy awaiting trial on any felony, but particularly one involving actual or threatened physical force / intimidation. So I'm wondering what University policy is.
    They have been charged with felonies. They've not been convicted, but they were charged when they were arrested.

    Cecil Hurt ‏@CecilHurt Arrested UA players struck students, stole belongings and fled, per police report and @TNews_Steph ... http://tmi.me/Kexfo

    If this is true then I believe they are done without question.

    I have tried a few cases in Tuscaloosa.

    For a first offence (if these are indeed first offences) and in consideration of the fact that they are all likely under the age of 21, none will likely see prison. They will end up with some type of youthful offender, probation or other deferred adjudication.

    That being said, if they do have any priors, they could be looking at some time.

    I doubt that there was any type of weapon used because if there was, they would have charged them with Robbery 1st and not robbery 2nd.

    Alabama is under a lot of scrutiny at this point...people are waiting to see what the outcome will be. I believe he should remove the players that have been charged (guilty by association) and let the system run its course.

    Eddie Williams on the other hand needs to be dismissed....if he doesn't care about his future then why should anyone else!

    Calloway was arrested for possession in December of 2011. Eddie Williams was arrested for an unlicensed pistol on Sunday. No known arrests for the other two.

    I didn't think there were any weapons used, and the Tuscaloosa News article indicates there weren't. I was just posting the punishment in that case.
