Notice how this didn’t happen in Chapel Hill?
Almost never does. Why a Carolina football or basketball player would ever venture outside the friendly confines of Orange County befuddles me.
Compare that to vigor and deep reach into the living premises of Wolfpack football players by off-duty police in Raleigh. (Link)
Quan Sturdivant, an All-ACC linebacker for the UNC-Chapel Hill football team, has been charged with possession of marijuana.
Sturdivant, 21, of Oakboro was arrested Saturday morning by Albemarle police and charged with possession of less than half an ounce of marijuana, a misdemeanor. Sturdivant is scheduled to appear Aug. 2 in Stanly County District Court.
Last year Sturdivant was the first Tar Heel linebacker named first-team All-ACC since 1997, according to the school’s website.
Sturdivant also was one of 16 semifinalists for the Butkus Award, given to the nation’s top linebacker.
You can bet your ass that Sturdivant will be on the field when the Tarheels open the season in Atlanta against LSU. So, the good news is that we shouldn’t have to deal with any imbalance of any coverage and application of standards related to our little problem from hypocritical Taheel fans and the local media. (Yes, I know that was a very redundant statement).
