Sanchez not Charged
It has been my position that if not charged Sanchez should still be suspended for the year for the fake ID alone. His actions have put coach Pete Carroll and SC Football in a tough spot. If charged it would have set back SC football significantly not just at the QB position but team dynamics as well. Now that charges will not be filed not setting up some form of discipline sends the wrong message about student-athletes when they get in trouble. Of course whatever punishment the school determines is at their discretion and no second guessing should take place. I realize that is an unrealistic hope.
Whatever the punishment, SC can now focus on the upcoming season and hopefully continue their winning ways and Mark Sanchez can put the whole mess behind him. I hope he gets something out of this unfortunate incident.
