Pac-10 Wrestling Champ Colby Covington Cited for 4th Degree Assault

Another "second chance" athlete at OSU in trouble. Embarrassing. The parallels between Covington and Lalich are uncanny. The two stories make me wonder if it's really worth gambling on a young guy trying to get his life back together. (If you didn't know, Colby had alcohol related issues at his past school, Iowa. A highly touted JC wrestler, he returned home to Oregon after being booted.) The success stories of these cases are unnoticeable and, while great, still fly under the radar. On the other end of the spectrum, the crap floats to the top. Does the athletic department really want to continue with the whole rehab center function? Let these kids find opportunities elsewhere is all I'm saying. And let's hope Shiloah Te'o (BYU transfer, dismissed over DUII charge) is paying attention. And let's hope that Covington isn't guilty.
