    Default 4 "event" suspension

    According to the Athletic, Coach Few will not be there today for Kraziness in the Kennel, the two exhibition games, and the season opener against Dixie St. He may be back for the TX game.

    With Anthony Black in attendance too; not exactly a slap on the wrist after all.

    I mean when he’s conveniently back for Texas, and misses three cupcakes, not the best look. especially since didn’t we add another exhibition AFTER the incident? Looks pretty obvious..

    I'd love to know when the idea of 2 separate exhibition games was made serious, then proposed, and then agreed upon.

    Few's arrest was 9/6.

    I'd be shocked if this plan were in place prior to 9/6.

    Reasonable ---- the haters are saying --"why not the UCLA, Duke and St Marys or BYU games" -- well sorry boys -- it did not work out like that.

    Put this behind us and move forward.

    I don’t think you’re a hater to have to question why he’s only missing the little sisters of the poor and Mars State. I would do the same if it was coach K. Didnt they add exhibition
    Games after the incident? If so, an even worse optic. Sorry.

    Help us to understand what would have been an acceptable result -- having to deal with the student sections all year long and what they will chant (team distraction), having to apologize to his family, the school and all alumni going forward for this incident, something like a suspension of license for a year, fines, alcohol classes, community service, missing out on the top '22 recruit visit and toss in maybe a 20 game suspension?

    The optics are your own preconceived notions.

    Default 4 "event" suspension

    I don’t follow the logic of why what games/events matter? If the suspension is four games/events, it shouldn’t be four games randomly on the schedule. It’s the first four on the schedule. Personally, I would have been fine with two games but I also think people make mistakes and what they’ve done in the past do too

    Of course it has to be the first four games.

    The point of question is the team adding two exhibitions so that he could coach vs Texas…

    Anywho go zags. Coach is a great man, made a mistake, and hopefully leads us to our first championship.

    If I'm not mistaken, he hasn't even had this settled in court yet, has he? Of course, Few and his attorneys probably have a pretty good idea of how this will play out, but a suspension prior to the outcome? It does seem a bit suspicious (for lack of a better word). Of course, being an employee (who's NOT REQUIRED TO DRIVE btw) it could reasonably be argued that the university wouldn't be taking any action against him at all if he weren't a public figure.

    Respectfully, I suspect less than 1% of the fans who agree with this punishment or who don’t think the 2nd exhibition game was set in order to add an “event” just to suspend Few from another “event” would keep that opinion if this exact situation were Coach K, Calipari, or Jay Wright.

    His 911 call was made by a fire chief who was trailing him in broad daylight where he almost hit 3 street signs then twice tested blood alcohol levels 1-2 recent stiff drinks above the legal amount.

    In my view, suspending him for a single ranked opponent would be a more fitting punishment than 4 nonserious events.

    Why add a 2nd exhibition when the suspension could’ve just been three events? It’s not like there’s a predetermined suspension if it happened so they had to add one. Way to much speculation IMO

    My God it's over the top. We have a legal system with penalties for such incidents. what have we all become!!!! I think I live in a world of wusses these days. How many nights have you all driven while drinking? In my case I could say many hundreds of times. Total the number who read this board and a million times wouldn't be out of line. Who's life could withstand such scrutiny? Oh Yeah, we didn't get caught. I would like to see this WOKE society spend more time on judging themselves and less time on judging others. What happened to forgiveness!!!!!, Lesson learned I'm sure. Get on with life. You can focus on happiness and joy or you can focus on shet. It won't say anything about Mark Few, but it will say a whole lot about you. Rant over.

    That's the exact mindset that needs to end in this world, which is the indifference over not just the consequences of your actions. but the increased potential consequences of your actions.

    "K" I posted an opinion and I,m attacked - surprise, surprise. Is Free Speech dead? If everybody agrees you get no change. With differing opinions you may get a lot of change. I would venture to guess on an individual level I have done more good than most. Apparently you don'[t know me and you are making a lot of invalid assumptions. Principles before personalities my friend.

    I wasn't attacking you, I was attacking the ideology behind your thinking. There is a difference. Moreover, I welcome your comment even if I believe it's exactly what's wrong with this world when it comes to this subject. You will not find me asking for mods to suppress your speech.

    I haven’t posted in ages but needed to because this it a pet peeve of mine. Free speech has NOTHING to do with this. Free speech only applies if the government suppresses speech. If mods here delete posts or other platforms that are private block posts it isn’t suppression of free speech.
    Sorry rant over.

    On behalf of all of us, and your community, please stop drinking and driving. It is not a political position. It is a matter of life and death for you and others you share the road with.

    My thoughts.

    1. Just because everyone else does something that is wrong doesn’t make it right. I think we all know that.

    2. While it seems reasonable for the school to hinge it’s penalty on the legal outcome, it is not a requirement. The school is well within its rights to determine its own penalties and disciplinary actions for employee misconduct.

    3. This suspension seems reasonable to me and fits within the framework of progressive discipline where penalties increase if needed. Not needed in this case.
