CougCenter: Jamal Atofau, Andre Barrington Should Be Immediately Dismissed

Over at our WSU Cougars team site CougCenter, we're none to pleased about the arrests of players Jamal Atofau and Andre Barrington as part of a major pot-growing operation:

I don't care whose plants they were. Atofau and Barrington lived in the apartment, and they had to know they were there. They're culpable. And whether it's through incredible audacity or sheer stupidity (or both), these two guys have brought tremendous embarrassment on a program that is headed in the right direction -- including a head coach who went to bat for both of these guys -- and that, to me, is unforgivable. Both should not only be kicked off the football team; they should be expelled from WSU.

All we hope is that this isn't just the tip of the proverbial iceberg:

Is it really plausible that no one else on the team knew about this? Imagine how many players had to have come through that apartment this year. ...

But what if it's even worse than that? What if it turns out these guys were actually supplying guys on the team? Is that so far out of the realm of possibility? We want to believe this group is made up of high-character guys who would never do something so stupid ... but here we are. And we've seen a heck of a lot of stupidity over the last three years.
