Reason #1,264 why fans should be glad DU does not sponsor football.
Lovers of history will remember the battle-cry “Remember the Alamo” that later spurred on the forces of Sam Houston at San Jacinto. Rest assured, Texas Christian University football fans will remember this year’s roller coaster Alamo Bowl.
TCU’s Bad Boy QB, Trevone Boykin, was arrested early Thursday morning in San Antonio, two days before the Valero Alamo Bowl between No. 11 TCU and No. 15 Oregon kicked off. According to reports, San Antonio police claim Boykin was arrested after hitting a patrol officer following a fight at Pat O’Brien’s — a New Orleans-themed night club on Alamo Plaza.
According to a San Antonio NBC affiliate, Boykin’s quarterback rating dropped precipitously when an errant punch, reportedly, missed its intended target and struck a bar employee. Police apparently tried to break up the fight, at which point a still-swinging Boykin hit an officer – interception #2! Officers threatened to tase Boykin so he took a quarterback sack.
Apparently, according to bar patrons, despite not being recognized (“Don’t you know who I am!”), Boykin “started talking trash.” He has been charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest and assaulting a public official.
As a post-script, TCU spotted Oregon a 31-0 halftime lead, stormed back in the second half, then won after three overtime periods, 47-41. The Frogs were led by a sober backup QB, Bram Kohllhausens, who caught fire in the second half.
Texas fans are likely to remember both the Alamo and this year’s Alamo Bowl but Trevon Boyken will quickly be forgotten
