A&M Commerce: Where the Football Players Aren’t Too Bright. Just Ask the Athletic Director

Posted in College Spurts, Gridiron, Lower Education at 6:14 am by

Print is dead? Not, apparently, to Guy Morris, who at least you can’t accuse of failing upwards. The former Kentucky and Baylor coach is now at Texas A&M University-Commerce, which I guess is where the kids who aren’t good enough to play at Texas A&M-Kingsville go. From The Battalion, via Romenesko:

Texas A&M University-Commerce football Head Coach Guy Morris admitted to police that his team was responsible for the removal of student newspapers distributed on campus Wednesday.

The East Texan published a story on Wednesday titled œFootball Player Arrested in Drug Bust.

Lt. Jason Bone, crime information officer, later interviewed Morris, who admitted to his team members™ involvement in the theft and said he supported their actions.

œI am proud of my players for doing that, Morris said. œThis was the best team building exercise we have ever done.…

According to Bone™s police report, Athletic Director Carlton Cooper said the football team could not have stolen the papers without the aid of outside help.

œI don™t think they are smart enough to do this on their own, he said.

Nor smart enough to realize there’s an Internet.

    I am a current student at Texas A&M-Commerce and I am appalled at this. I can’t believe that the press is now in danger in this school. I am curious and waiting for the investigation to get under way, but there is video evidence of the players stealing the papers and then the head coach endorses it! Idiotic!
