For those of you who might not have known, the Tennessee Volunteers have a backup quarterback named Jim Bob Cooter. No, you heard us correctly; we said Tennessee, not Stanford.
Anyway, Cooter, a walk-on senior backup for the Vols, was suspended by the team after being arrested in Knoxville on Saturday night. You're never going to believe what the charge was.
Although the school did not release details of the rules violation, police arrested Cooter Saturday at 3:25 a.m. and charged him with DUI after he failed a field sobriety test. Cooter had been observed near the UT campus driving the wrong way and for failure to stop at a stop sign before police pulled him over.
Also ticketed: An underage female companion, for underage drinking and having an open container. Not to worry, though: They're cousins, it's all fine.
We really shouldn't make too much fun of the boy, though: His real name, so you know, is James Robert Cooter. That they shorten to "Jim Bob" is merely a coincidence.
