In January, we discussed the United States Naval Academy’s decision to retain star slotback Midshipman Marcus Curry following a drug pop.  The Annapolis Capital reported yesterday that “Head coach Ken Niumatalolo booted Curry from the program for not complying with team rules.”  The article explained that “The Capital has learned from numerous Naval Academy sources that Curry was charged with an unauthorized absence for failing to be in his dormitory room in Bancroft Hall when required.”  The article also indicates that Mishipman Curry plans to leave the Naval Academy:  “Sources close to the situation told The Capital that Curry intends to voluntary resign from the Naval Academy and transfer to another school in the wake of his dismissal from the football team. Curry did not take part in Monday’s ceremony at the White House.”

    “It’s unfortunate, but it had to be done. We’re a football team and the rules apply to everybody,” Niumatalolo said yesterday when asked about Curry’s removal from the roster.

    Good to see that the football coach can still maintain standards of conduct. Perhaps VADM Fowler learn something from Coach Niumataololo.

    Kid blew his second chance. Only Squids and Grunts get second chances on drug pops. Flyboys and Jarheads get a boot with jail time.
