After spending the last couple of hours reading this whole thread, I've come to one conclusion....

 

The cop was NOT an IU fan...

 

Back in the day there was probably a 80-90% chance that a discreet “come and get him” call to the athletic department, rather than arrest, would have been made.

I’m sorry were any of you young or never really lived? Things happen and thankfully no one got hurt. It’s not robbery it’s not assault or rape. It’s a dumb kid doing a dumb thing. And yes even if he’s 22 (don’t know how old he is) he’s still still a kid figuring things out. 
At UNC I saw a basketball literally slap a woman in open public and I got in trouble for yelling at that kid.  Perspective people. In the course of this chess game we call life, sometimes we shine and sometimes we mess up. He messed up. But if Woodson believes in the family mantra then you don’t kick someone out for something like this. You discipline and hopefully he grows. 
No one is perfect  and if you think you are….. well you  probably haven’t lived or you don’t have anyone in your life to stand up to you and call you out. 
Kid? Lol. He is a young man just like 18 year olds. There are young men serving in the military the same age. Yes these young men can still make stupid decisions.

I didn't read through everything here but can we summarize:

1) charged with reckless driving, 90 in a 35

2) charged with evasion for trying to flee in his car then switch places with someone

3) once stopped he pretty much cooperated with everything else including a very low breathalyzer 

While really dumb and could have caused serious injury, if this is the gist of the story then suspend him for a game and move on.

Better yet, make him wear a "Dunce Cap" around campus.  And his teammates can wear the "I'm with Stupid" t-shirts.

Add a game on the suspension for being stupid enough to get out of the car and switch seats.  At 22, you can do that in the car.

Good to know that a speeding ticket for you is grounds for dismissal. Hope we can field a team next year. 

It was more than a speeding ticket

In the end it will be just a speeding ticket. The resisting arrest will be dropped. Since he apparently has another excessive speeding ticket, his drivers license could be in jeopardy. This case will be resolved well in advance of next season. Very unlikely he will be dismissed, imo, but Woodson is going to make him pay in other ways.

Punishing somebody for what could have happened instead of what actually happened is not fair to anybody.  Let's just focus on what he did instead of what he did not do.

The fact that he passed a breath test for alcohol is a big deal in terms of the disposition of the case. Had he been drunk, he would be in much greater jeopardy.

If all speeders were kept from showing up for games, it would be a very empty arena.  I don't even want to tell you about some of my friends, (all over 50).  They can finally afford those nice sporty cars and they do enjoy seeing what those cars can do.

So this is my take.  I think that at the very least some kind of suspension will be coming.  JHS is coming and he is ready to play the moment he sets foot on campus.  Woodson has talked all season about point guard being the most important position and how he needs a point guard he can trust to run the team and be a leader.  
 

JHS is going to get a lot of time running with the starters as point guard in practice as next season approaches. He will spend a lot of time with the coaching staff going over game plans, matchups, scouting reports, what we are trying to do on offense, defense, etc.  I would not be surprised if this bad judgement from X results in him losing a lot on the court.

Whether JHS is ready or not should not enter into the punishment equation. And as Woodson demonstrated, as he should have, at NW, he made his decision irrespective of it's immediate impact on the team. I see a lot of running the stadium and a suspension to start the season in his future.

Dakich is posting on twitter,  laughing at the people saying that RMK had a "no nonsense policy" for his players.  DD said Knight ALWAYS kept talented players instead of dismissing them from the team.  I don't know where people got the idea IU players were squeaky clean in the good old days...lol.  Some posters sound like they would only be happy with a team of Stepford robots representing Indiana basketball.   Where did all misinformation about RMK come from?  He was a GREAT coach, but he never insisted on a team full of choir boys.

 

 

Two words, Jay and Edwards
