Punting on 1st AND 4th down


In an effort to stay in the news (and keep Volunteer football discipline issues in the news as well) punter Britton Colquitt has had yet another run-in with the coppers involving drinking and/or driving.  For those of you keeping score, that’s 5 times total (including a 3 arrests in 12 days binge before he enrolled) since he signed his scholarship papers.

colquittfreeride.jpgThe name sounds familiar because his brother, father, and uncle all punted at UT.  Dustin is currently the starter for the Chiefs, and Britton recently considered entering the draft before choosing college life for one more year–and how!

During this most recent encounter, he apparently plowed a parked car and a stump (also not moving).

His latest arrest came shortly around 3 a.m. Sunday, when according to the Knox County Judicial Commissioner’s Office, the 22-year-old Colquitt hit a parked car on Jackson Avenue near Humes Street, a few blocks east of the Old City… According to police records, Colquitt admitted to have two beers, three mixed drinks and hitting the parked Ford Focus as well as a tree stump.

He had been suspended in March 2004 following his fourth wagon-fall.  This time the punishment got a little worse, including the revocation of his scolarship coupled with a 5 game suspension.

Yet again, I am baffled by the “guy-who-gets-in-trouble-because-he-has-nothing-else-to-do” being punished with more free time.

But hey, what do I know?

I blame this on Daniel Lincoln anyway. Kickers don’t let Punters drink and drive.

    Only in Tennessee can your brother also be your dad and uncle.

    Sorry man, I couldn’t pass it up. It just read that way to me the first time through. Maybe because of my Kentucky educations? Don’t hate me forever. Also, please be for scuba.
