Well, I don't think this makes UT a joke, nor do I relish the incident as an opportunity to rag the coach. On the other hand, to say that there are policies that cover this and Fulmer will follow them is a cop out implying his hands are tied. I remember Bill Walton telling John Wooden (right after being named National Player of the Year) that Coach Wooden didn't have the right to make him cut his hair. Wooden agreed that he did not have that right, but he did have the right to decide who plays and that if Walton did not cut his hair immediately he would not be playing. Walton himself acknowledged that he immediately went to a barber shop and got his hair cut. Wooden did not hide behind legalisms or policies, he led his players to his own conscience. He was pretty darn successful both on the court and off with the strong leadership he showed his players. So you see, it has nothing to do with whether pot ought to be legal or that boys will be boys. A strong leader molds boys into young men with clear direction and consequences. My opinion anyway.
