Gabba Gabba No Way : Noted Agriculturalist Ramonce Leaves Longhorns

How will Texas replace Ramonce Taylor’s production?  And never mind the weed, what about his 15 TD’s last year?   From the Austin American-Stateman’s Suzanne Halliburton.

University of Texas tailback Ramonce Taylor, who is facing felony drug possession charges, is expected to transfer. His decision to change schools could be announced as early as today.

A school official familiar with the situation confirmed late Monday night that Taylor would transfer.

The junior-to-be is expected to transfer to Texas College in Tyler, an NAIA school. Jay Brown, Texas College’s coach, said he has spoken with Taylor regarding a transfer.

Taylor was suspended from the team in January because of poor academics, and he did not sufficiently improve his grades in the spring. The source said he was not expected to be eligible to compete this fall, making his transfer necessary if he desired to continue playing.

Taylor also wasn’t included in the team’s media guide, which was released Monday.
