Article claims it was a "mutual decision", but I'm pretty sure he didn't want to give up the scholarship. He just made a stupid decision to smoke drugs & video tape it.

OK. So they gave him an ultimatum, cut this shit out and pull these videos down, or you can't play football here, and he chose the music.
Wouldn't be my choice. I'da stuck out the ride, taken some music classes, maybe some writing courses, and worked on my shit in private until I was out. But I can at least respect the decision, quality of content not withstanding.
And I'm fine with the University's line on something like this.
