FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The following is a statement from University of Arkansas head football coach Bret Bielema:
“I am aware of the situation involving Austin Flynn, and I am disappointed in his actions. I will review the matter and it will be handled swiftly and decisively. Our student-athletes will understand there will be discipline in our program and will learn the responsibility they have in representing Arkansas in the right way. We will hold our student-athletes accountable for their actions at all times and character and integrity will always be a priority. Within our program, we will learn just as many life lessons through our failures as we will through our future success.”
He is a great speaker, I am glad to see him take time to release a statement. It is a shame he got behind the wheel of a vehicle like that. I hope they punish him in a way that allows him to finish at Arkansas. Do you think they would kick him off the Football team for this. I have looked at other DWI situations and it did not seem like 1st timers got removed from the team. Just had to sit a couple games.
Don't know mikel7676 since this is a new HC. In the past they seldom have been kicked off for something similar to this. Kane Whitehurst was, but for the most part it is a one or two game suspension, but this is a new coach so no way of knowing what he will do
Yeah but this is also a chance to set the tone from the beginning, though his statement did that very well I think.
Coach B is a players coach, but he is big on discipline and focus so I bet this all works out nicely. Kid made a mistake and lucky for everyone nobody was hurt which helps in this case.. he made a mistake hopefully can move forward from it.
This makes me think he's going to be allowed to stay on the team.

He isn't going to get kicked off the team for a DUI. Plus this is the first time, as far as I know, he has been in real trouble. No way he will be kicked off nor should he be.
Agreed if he doesn't have a bad history he just made a mistake with poor judgement, nobody got hurt he can learn from it.
He's not going any where, like everyone keeps saying, the stadium bleachers and in Coach B's dog house.

If you do drugs or drink and get behind the wheel and are lucky enough to not have an accident, it's the same as shooting at someone and missing. IMO
I agree with what LendHog is saying, but we're not tried and judged by what COULD have happened we are based on what DID happen.
I do agree with you though, personally I cannot stand people who drink and drive, I have kids with me in the car most times!
I am also a fan of learning, if this ends up being a 1 time thing and he learns from it, then life moves on and is better for it.
