I agree that Watkins appears to be a bad egg.  He probably shouldn't be on the team or under scholarship at this point.  In life, people that are really good at what they do get the second, third, and fourth chances that many others aren't granted.  If you are your companies top salesman that is responsible for generating a large portion of their annual revenue, a DUI or maybe even a second DUI may not get you fired.  If you are barely meeting your sales numbers, then a texting while driving in a company car may get you a termination. Remember Satchel Pierce will be out until at least mid-December due to academic ineligibility.  That may have bought Watkins one last chance.  They did win the NIT tournament without Watkins or nearly any contributions from Pierce.

Nobody INTENTIONALLY goes out to drink and drive. Anyone can have one too many at a wedding reception and get in trouble. BUT possessing drug paraphernalia, or blatantly punching someone in the face, is something that you WILLINGLY do and have NO excuse for. Is there such a phrase as "Five strikes you're out"?

Please take a second and read what you just wrote.  Drinking and driving is 1 billion times worse of an offense than having a grinder in your gym bag.  Both of those acts the person is solely responsible for but the difference is the grinder in the gym back can't run over a child in a crosswalk. I don't care one bit about the drug paraphernalia charge.  If someone checked my gym bag when I was in college, they would probably find something similar. There isn't an excuse for cutting line at for a McDouble and punching someone in the face for calling you out.  I am not defending this guy.  You are just using your age old tactic of saying something utterly ridiculous in order to entice an argument.

When abpk opens his eyes, he sees the "Penn State right or wrong" banner. I'm sure Sandy Barbour will be fair. Whatever benefits the program.

I said he is wrong and shouldn't be on the team.

I was just logging on to post this.  
I hope he can earn his degree and he can make a better life for himself and any children he may have. I really don’t care if he plays basketball for Penn State again.  Our inner cities will not get better if we don’t help people that weren’t blessed with stability amoungst their family, friends, and community. 
I am vaguely family with area in which he (and Shep Garner) are from. Let me tell you, most people on this message board have absolutely no idea...don’t even pretend that you can relate.
