Arkansas Alcohol Class Maybe in Linebacker’s Future

by: Mike Miller

It is very true that bad things happen to good people. You can be a good person and still drink and drive. You are just a good person who made a very bad decision. Hopefully, Arkansas linebacker Terrell Williams will learn from his mistake, take an Arkansas alcohol class and get his life and career back on line.

He has been suspended indefinitely following his weekend arrest on charges of driving while intoxicated. As reported in

According to police, Williams' vehicle crossed the center line before he was pulled over early Sunday morning - hours after the Razorbacks' 19-15 victory over Tulsa. Williams refused a blood-alcohol test after failing a field-sobriety test and was "uncooperative" and very argumentative. Not a good sign.

The 21-year-old is the fourth Arkansas player arrested since John L. Smith was hired as head coach in April.

The Arkansas football program is in complete disarray with the horrific behavior of its players. Two former players, Marquel Wade and Andrew Peterson, were sentenced to six months in jail and five years' probation last month for their roles in on-campus burglaries. They were arrested, along with former teammate Maudrecus Humphrey last May, and arrest reports said the three stole textbooks, DVDs, laptops and more than $4,800 in cash from a university dormitory.

Incidentally, former head coach Bobby Petrino was arrested for DUI after a motorcycle crash that injured both he and his passenger, a 21-year-old coed who was also his mistress.

Arkansas should mandate all players take alcohol classes and drug classes. Perhaps they even should mandate stop theft classes.
