Da'Rick Rogers admits to failing drug tests at Tennessee.

Tennessee Tech wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers came clean about the events that led to his departure from the Tennessee Volunteers. Not surprisingly, they were drug related.

“There were a couple of drugs tests,” said Rogers, a 6-foot-2, 206-pound junior from Calhoun, Ga. “It wasn’t anything too crazy. It was about me being a young, immature guy, and those are things I’ve got to work on. I plan to do that.”

UT’s substance abuse policy for athletes does not carry mandatory punishment for a first-time offense. Punishment for a second offense is a one-game suspension.

A third offense may result in an indefinite or permanent suspension."

So reading between the lines, Rodgers probably failed three drug tests, if is story is true. More than enough to make Vols head football coach Derek Dooley head to his own medicine cabinet for a couple of aspirin.
