He knew they were drug dealers?
Yeah this sucks. It's a black eye all around but it doesn't mean Choate is gone, doesn't mean his leash is shorter. It doesn't mean we will not take second chances. All it means is we need a better support network for the guys we do bring in

I'm sorry, but the reason these two started slinging prescription drugs on the side is because the university didn't "support" them enough? That's like saying a guy's screwed up because his momma didn't breastfeed him when he was a baby. Life is all about choices, these two are a couple steps into a series of really crappy ones. Its not because MSU didn't support them.
On a related note, no, not everyone is entitled to a second chance either.
For the record, no, Choate doesn't deserve to be gone because of this. But I hope he takes this as an opportunity to improve his player picker, 'cause it was kinda broken in this instance.
You don't think any of the P5 schools have extra support programs in place for athletes for this purpose?
I don't honestly know what directed program MSU has in place, or what any of the P5 programs may have. But we need a support program to keep our athlete's from dealing drugs on the side?!?
Support programs are the norm in our society, especially in places that hire and staff themselves in large numbers of employees. There are support and assistant programs at most corporations and government agencies. There's even a support program for NFL rookies. They have drug and alcohol programs, health and wellness programs, just to name a couple. Today's corporations and agencies want the people they hire to succeed and understand that investments into support programs pays off in the long run. So they may seem unnecessary to you, but the people in power have found them to be profitable.
