t.u. Players Arrested

With less than a week until the game, Longhorn starter CB Tarell Brown was arrested for weapons and weed (along with backup LB Tyrell Gatewood and former player, Aaron Harris) late Sunday night.

Brown, a senior, has played in 37 games for the Longhorns, starting in 26. He's also one of the Horns' main kick/punt returners. Brown is/was expected to play a major role in containing Ohio State WR Ted Ginn, Jr. in Saturday's game.

Coach Mack Brown released the following statement Monday afternoon:

“We are aware of the situation with Tarell (Brown) and Tyrell (Gatewood) and have met with both of them,” Brown said. “We’re working closely with the young men and the authorities. At this time, we are holding them out of all team functions as we gather as much information as possible before making a team decision.”


..leaving Brown's playing status still in doubt and Ted Ginn, Jr. and the tOSU faithful with blue balls for the time being.

If Brown lets this guy play, I dont want to ever see any ESPN talking head say anything about OSU again. It will be interesting to see how it gets handled by MB. There is no way this kid should play with a gun charge...no way.
