Vols Get "Swag Back," Then Get Busted

Posted By on Fri, Jan 1, 2010 at 3:10 PM

The Knoxville News Sentinel is reporting today that four University of Tennessee basketball players were arrested Friday on misdemeanor drug and weapons charges.

Less than 24 hours after the players helped the Vols defeat Memphis, Melvin Goins, Tyler Smith, Cameron Tatum, and Brian Williams were arrested at a traffic stop by Knoxville police, according to the News Sentinel.

In a report on the game in Friday's paper, Smith was quoted by the Sentinel as saying the Vols had gotten their "swag back." Or was that "schwag"? The jokes write themselves. -- BV
