    BREAKING: Van Darius Cowan Dismissed from Team

    Link

    University of Alabama freshman linebacker VanDarius Cowan has been dismissed from the football team for a violation of team rules, according to an announcement Monday from the UA athletics department.


    “VanDarius has been dismissed from the team and is no longer a part of our football program due to a violation of team rules,” Coach Nick Saban said in the statement Monday morning. “Each of us has a responsibility to represent The University of Alabama in a first-class way, and failure to meet those standards can’t be tolerated. We wish VanDarius the very best in the future.”


    Cowan, 19, from Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, was projected to be a contender for playing time in 2018.


    The dismissal comes less than a week after Tuscaloosa Police charged Cowan with misdemeanor assault. The statement did not address the arrest.


    The arrest was related to an incident at a Tuscaloosa bar last month.


    Cowan was charged with third-degree assault, Tuscaloosa Police confirmed. He turned himself in Thursday and immediately posted $500 bond without having to go to jail, which isn’t uncommon for misdemeanor charges through TPD.
    "I don't know what class is but I can tell when one has it, you can tell from a mile away"
    -- Coach Bryant

    "We always talk about playing 60 minutes but this is a 60-10 game: the 60 minutes of the game and the 10 minutes in the locker room after the game that you remember for the rest of your life."
    -- Nick Saban day after beating Clemson

    Wasn't he kicked off his high school team?
    Just a barner.

    My wife asked me the other day: "Are you even listening to me?"


    Which is a really weird way to start a conversation.

    He was lucky to still get his shot. Ended up blowing it anyway. Tough.

    He was given multiple chances while at UA to get his act together.... It's always something with him. I hope he figures it out and save his career somewhere.

    Some people just can't get it together. Sad to see someone throw away an opportunity that could have changed his life.

    Kid sounds like a classic “can’t get right.” He needs to get his act together and find a JUCO quick. Hope he straightens up.
