This is not good.

My fellow contributors at Illinitalk may disagree with me but even though Jamar may plead for lesser charges, I still believe Weber needs to come down hard on him. I lean toward not playing at U of I again.

My reasoning is thus: tough punishment deters crime. This is the second DUI by an Illinois basketball player this year. That is unacceptable. It creates a perception problem for the program and the university.

Interestingly enough, the university has a large chunk of it's student code devoted to alcohol but no guidelines on punishment that I could find.
