And just an hour or so after we typed this about Bobby Bowden...
Sets a deplorable example by refusing to discipline players who commit actual crimes under his watch.
...presto! We get this. Bowden did suspend him and discipline him for even being an alleged rapist and bringing negative attention to the team. This is, however, following a prior DUI arrest and an incident with the Tallahassee cops that ended with A.J. Nicholson getting tasered. (Just made him friskier--allegedly!) Alleged is an important word, here--there's nothing there yet. But when your starting linebacking corps can boast a domestic assault charge, a DUI, and an allegation of rape, well, that's who's representing you out there, FSU alums and fans. Enjoy. *** To See A.J. avoiding the news cameras, click here***
Why is Ernie smiling? Because he could look like a saint compared to his fellow LB A.J. Nicholson./i>
