After Lane Kiffin left the spotlight at Tennesse, things haven’t been the same, as now two Volunteers players got arrested this Friday after a bar brawl, something to consider for the upcoming season when you take a look at the NCAA Football Odds.

According to the Knoxville Police Department spokesman, Darrell DeBusk, the Freshman receiver Da’Rick Rogers was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. 

Rogers is one of the Volunteers’ most noticeable signees under first-year coach Derek Dooley.

The other one was Sophomore safety Darren Myles Jr., who was arrested and charged with assaulting a University of Tennessee police office.

Both were released after a $3000 bond combination.  None of those dumb kids had an attorney.

“We’ve heard that anywhere from seven to 10 people were involved in the incident inside the bar, and we believe the majority of them are associated with the UT football team,” DeBusk said.

The Volunteers could end up having more than just legal problems.

Sandy Morton, owner of the Bar Knoxville, told a newspapers that the Tennessee football players received “VIP status” at their bar and didn’t have to pay a cover.

Remember the whole deal here is that NCAA rules say that athletes aren’t allowed to receive any extra benefits or special arrangements such as discounts at restaurants or bars.

USC got suspended for two Bowl seasons just recently for something similar. Although it had nothing to do with a bar, it was because his players were receiving special treatments from third persons.
