Friday night Clemson’s star receiver Sammy Watkin’s was arrested for possession of marijuana and a possession of a controlled substance. Simply put it was bonehead mistake by Watkins. By all accounts Watkins “had” been a model student and athlete. This was a surprise and a shock to Clemson football fans. If I had to name some of the least likely Tiger players to do this, Watkins would have been among them. When the best player on your team does something like this you have a problem. Clemson Tiger site OrangeandWhite says it best “Sammy Watkins’ arrest gives Dabo Swinney disciplinary crises”.
I’ve talked to some Clemson fans, and I’ve heard it all. From no suspension it was his first offense to kick him off team. I find the second a bit extreme, but you know he did embarrass his university and himself. Others said smoking pot happens everywhere what’s the big deal? My favorite was he should be suspended, but not for the Auburn but only for the Ball State and or Furman games.
