April 26:

Darnell Burton has been suspended for the 95-96 season for "breaking
team rules".   He still will have two years of elgibility left when
and if he returns.  It's important to note that in today's News
Record Burton denies that he failed a drug test.

May 1:

The Post announced Saturday that Burton tested positive to ***
according to sources close to the program.

May 3:

WLW reported this morning that Arthur Long and Danny Fortson were
arrested last night in Corryville.  Long was arrested for ***ing a
police horse (a horse?) and Danny was arrested for disorderly conduct.
Now we know why Huggins has to schedule easy teams at the beginning of
the year, not so much to get the team ready but because he is not sure
if he's going to have enough players to field a team.

Wow, a horse?

Just thought this deserved *at least* one more look.

Any details about this incident would be greatly appreciated.

I think they said a police officer was giving one of the players
cars a parking ticket and Long punched the horse.

Are you sure this came from John Zurieck's page?  Actually I know it did, so
come on John stop smoking that stuff.  Easy teams at the beginning of the
schedule?  Go back and look again.  Last year we played 5 top 25 teams before
January (out of 13 games) and non top 25 competition included Temple (neutral
floor, Wyoming (away), and Hawaii(away).  I've totally blocked the Canisius
game from memory so I won't even mention that one.  :)  

Now next year on the other hand, Huggins better schedyule a lot of patsies
early.  But word is that Arkansas and UMass are awaiting among others that I
can't remember.

To expand (expound?) on this report, Long is indeed accused of ***ing Mr.
Mike Cody, a Cincinnati Police horse.  He was pulled over, got upset and
reportedly struck the horse 4 times in the neck.  Art says he was just petting
him.  :)  Hopefully next year he'll think Walker and Wright etc. are horses. :)
It is nice to see Long and Fortson working this well together.

I already gave a brief explanation but what the hell, everyone (?) already
thinks we are UNLV east so I'll give the whole poop.

If you are not aware (It's been on every newscast the last week) there have
been some problems in Cincy between the black community and the police
recently.  A group of 50-100 kids at a bus stop downtown were harassing
passerbys and the police were called.  One guy, a black kid wouldn't move when
instructed to and when the police tried to arrest him the crowd yelled for him
to resist arrest which he did.  In the struggle the cop separated his shoulder
and 4other cops arrived and subdued the guy by macing him and physical force.
The black community has cried racism even though the first cop on the scene was
of Native American/Japanese descent and the cop who repeatedly maced him was
black.  (personnally I should mention that I don't think it was racism, it is
newsworthy because it was all caught on film).

Now, fast forward to the night Long and Fortson were arrested.  There is a
section off campus called Corryville which has quite a few bars.  Long and
Fortson were cruising in Long's '75 Caddy when they passed a mounted black
officer writing parking tickets (about 1 am).  They yelled "Uncle Tom" and
other insults to him as they drove past.  The cop then radioed ahead to a
cruiser who pulled the 2 over.  Long was cited for driving without a liscence
and apparently became pretty po'd and then according to the police he struck
Mr. Mike Cody (the horse, as now the mounted officer had arrived at the scene).
Fortson was a little drunk (having admitted to a "few shots of rum") and
apparently was very beligerent and was arrested for disorderly conduct while
intoxicated.  Ross Julson (who is the father of red-shirt sophmore Jackson
Julson) posted the bond ($500) for them.

As far as penalties go it is very unclear, but I expect Fortson to be suspended
for a week of practice and 1 game but Long's status (although I seriously doubt
removal from the team) is more questionable.  With Darnell Burton being
suspended for next season, the Cats are definitely in trouble in more ways than
one.

Hopefully this clariefies things a bit more.  Flame or joke away all you wish.
It's kind of hard to resist.

ps - normally I would not mention races but I do think it is important here and
that is why I did so.  If I offended anyone I apologize.
