    Teachable moment for the kids.
    My posts indicate that I don't seem to follow college basketball all that closely.

    It's really unfortunate because he is supposed to be setting an example for them and the program. At his age, this is inexcusable.

    Same thought.

    That said, everyone makes mistakes. Few has done more than enough good for both the university and community to warrant compassion over unhelpful critique.

    I’m certain he’s embarrassed, especially as commentators will likely mention this throughout the season.

    Pisses me off, especially when the wealthy do this. No excuse to not get an Uber, driver, etc. when you are making the money he does.

    Not excited to watch the fallout.

    Yeah - they don't have a helicopter or chauffeur following him around at all times?

    Idaho Vandal mafia teamed up with the Coog mafia to set him up. Everyone makes a mistake move on to more important things.

    Really bad take. Nothing to joke about here.

    That is shocking and sad....for someone his age and position it is inexcusable .....hopefully it is just a mistake in judgement and not a indication of a more serious problem......

    Very disappointing, but people make mistakes. Considering all the good he has done, as well as no history of issues previously, I am not going to be to hard on the coach. That doesn't mean that he should be given a pass, it means that I will let it all play out and hopefully something teachable can ultimately come out of this.

    Really sad news. It is very disappointing news, but Few is human like the rest of us. There is no mens rea for DUI which means it's not a crime where you have to have formed an intent to be guilty of the offense. It's a crime of poor judgement. I'm happy no one was hurt and that he was alone in the vehicle. I suspect Few will take responsibility and resolve the matter quickly. I don't know anything about ID laws, but in Washington the common resolution for this offense would be a reduction to Negligent Driving First Degree with no jail time and no license suspension. I never heard the outcome with Josh Perkin's arrest, but I suspect that is what happened with his DUI.

    I’d hope Few would be more out in front of this than hiding behind the peculiarities of the law. He’s a public figure, a well paid university employee and leader in his industry. Grab this by the throat, and do good.

    So disappointed in Few right now. Dude chose to drink and drive, a decision that literally kills people. Don’t wanna see him demonized for one bad decision but it’s a doozy. GU damn sure needs to publicly condemn the behavior and announce consequences. Failure to do so would be bad PR and, more importantly, undermine Few’s authority to hold his players accountable.

    On a lighter note, too soon to start a poll on who is his missing designated driver: Lloyd or Roth?

    All of us make mistakes. I'm glad no one was hurt and I hope Coach Few makes the most of this life lesson.

    Wake me when the university announces the consequences they choose to hold Coach Few accountable.

    The university cannot wait for the legal process to play out; it needs to get in front of this. That is the responsible thing to do.

    Others: agree or disagree?
