Recently the tide athlete Jimmy John was arrested on substance abuse charges but thats not what turned out to be a bigger controversy. What got everybody’s [fans, critics, radio talk shows] goat was the Pit Bull breeding website.
Although there was nothing illegitimate about it, it reminded everybody and triggered bad memories about an equally infamous case. That of Michael Vick and his pit bull breeding and fighting business.
More over Jimmy John appeared on the website in his uniform which was a clear violation of the NCAA rules. Under the football body rules, a player can establish a business but cannot use his image/name to promote it.
UA authorities have seemed to wash their hands off this as they categorically pointed out this jock is no longer with the school.
