Can you get a prescription for ecstasy?

Just when you thought it had all happened and the off-field shenanigans of athletes couldn't be topped, something spectacular happens. This is truly unbelievable.

Doesn't Bobby usually try to tell everyone about what a family it is up there in Tallahassee? If so, apparently families steal from each other.

Some highlights:

  • In a sworn, taped interview on May 28, Rouse said Nicholson entered the home and carried out two portable stereos, a DVD player and a pair of headphones.
  • Rouse also said Nicholson had sustained a substantial cut on a finger. ... In gaining entry, the suspects appeared to cut themselves as they left blood there and on one of Bookers' roommate's sheets. Police later found drops of blood at the exterior of the home of Nicholson's girlfriend.
  • Rouse was arrested and charged with three felonies: burglary of a dwelling, grand theft and unrelated possessions of a controlled substance without a prescription, which was ecstasy.
  • Nicholson, who was accused of a sexual assault in Miami and sent home from the Orange Bowl, was selected by the Bengals in the fifth round. Nicholson, who has pleaded no contest to a DUI arrest and had another incident with Tallahassee police that led to dropped charges of resisting arrest, has not been charged in the sexual assault case.

On an unrelated note...

Man - my Noles suck.

It's a shame that Rouse isn't on the team anymore (http://hooraybeer.blogspot.com/2006/01/it-was-nice-knowing-ya.html). If he was, I think they should've changed his number to 3, to represent the number of felonies he's been charged with.

Which makes me wonder if Nicholson's number had any relationship to the number of felonies he has perpetrated.

Also, I talked to Will at Deadspin about why this story isn't getting much play at his site or with the mainstream types. His explanation made sense, sadly, to me. He said that this story just isn't funny... too serious.

So Miami gets dragged through the mud for what was a crude, but in some ways funny, rap song (which was a few years old). But FSU goes out and does something
