It was announced on Monday that the University of Texas had dismissed Jordan Eiter from the baseball team after being arrested on Saturday evening for marijuana possession and resisting arrest. (Link) It seems to me that this decision was made very quickly by Texas without the student-athlete able to have a chance to protect himself against charges in a court.
This is the exact opposite of what happened at Florida International last season with Garrett Wittels who was charged with raping a girl in the Bahamas but was not suspended by the school. (CBD Roundtable) FIU continued to stay behind Wittels and eventually the charges were dropped.
My question to you is what do you think of the decision of Texas to dismiss Eitner from the baseball program? Feel free to vote in the poll below and leave your comments also.
