Arkansas players arrested on burglary charges, accused of stealing from dorms.

And the hits just keep on coming for Arkansas. Three Razorback players, wide receivers Maudrecus Humphrey and Marquel Wade, and tight end Andrew Peterson, were arrested on charges of residential burglary. The three are accused of stealing from dorm rooms on the Arkansas campus.

 "According to the police, the thefts took place over the course of a week, with 10 reports of stolen items from the Northwest Quad dormitories.

Video from the location showed the three Arkansas players going into dorm rooms and taking items such as textbooks, laptops, DVDs and cash. The cash value of the stolen items comes to $4,817."

All three players have been suspended by Arkansas head coach John L. Smith. Combine this incident with the previous arrests of three other players, and the Bobby Petrino mess, and it looks like it will be a long, hot summer in Fayetteville.

I find it sad when coaches and even university presidents use the term "student-athletes" for criminals on campus. Did these guys, after robbing other dorm rooms, promptly return to their own rooms and resume working on term papers? I don't think so! Does anyone really think that these perps ever sat in a classroom taking lecture notes or ever opened a textbook? I suspect that the only time they ever touched a textbook was when they sold one that they had stolen.
