Tyler Smith Kicked off Team at Tennessee

NCAA Basketball: Tennessee at Southern California
One week after being arrested following a traffic stop in Knoxville, first team All-SEC senior forward Tyler Smith was dismissed from the Tennessee basketball team. Smith and three other players were arrested for possession of firearms and marijuana. Smith average 17 points and 5 rebounds last season for the Vols and was the heart of soul of their team this season.

Needless to say this is a huge blow for the Tennessee basketball program. Smith was their leader. Three other players were involved in the incident Melvin Goins, Cameron Tatum, and Brian Williams they are currently on an indefinite suspension.

But can you really blame the players for carrying a gun while in Knoxville? After all, there are Tennessee Football players around.
