The 4 Alabama Players Arrested Last Month Are No Longer Enrolled

Gettin' the boot.

According to ESPN, Alabama has officially announced the dismissal of the four players arrested on campus earlier this month. In addition to the dismissal from the football team, according to university spokeswoman Deborah Lane, D.J. Pettway, Eddie Williams, Brent Calloway and Tyler Hayes are no longer enrolled at The University of Alabama after judicial review. 

Earlier today, Saban made a statement saying:

"Their actions do not reflect the spirit and character that we want our organization to reflect. It's obviously very disappointing and unacceptable what happened. I also think I'm really proud over the last five years that our team has done a very good job with their personal responsibility and how they've represented the university. Some people learn by words, some people learn by consequences, some people can't learn." 

Pettway, Williams and Hayes are being charged with two counts of second-degree robbery. Calloway and Williams are being charged with fraudulent use of a credit card and student ID (Act Card) at on-campus facilities. Eddie Williams confessed last week according to court documents, to robbing the student who was punched in the head and face and kicked in the ribs and back. He also added that Pettway and Hayes watched him rob another student from a nearby vehicle about an hour later. Also according to those court documents, Tyler Hayes admitted to participating in the first robbery but not the second.

Saban today also addressed the other issues with four separate players regarding either an injury or suspension. CB John Fulton and WR Kevin Norwood are not participating in conditioning practices due to turf toe injuries. Marvin Shinn has left the team due to reasons the media have not been made aware of and Danny Woodson has been suspended for violating team rules. 

The question many Bama fans are asking is whether these offseason woes will affect them in the upcoming season. The Crimson Tide will be attempting to make history and win three straight FBS NCAA Football Championships in a row.
