    Big deal. A fat lot of good it's doing them. Maybe they'd play better if they got shit-faced every night.

    Do they give them six-figure checks and warm milk to help them sleep?

    Reminds me of that story on the Yankees in the late 50s/early 60s where management was upset at the team's play so they hired a private detective.

    The first players the detective decided to follow were Bobby Richardson and Tony Kubek, the two most quietest players on the team. The detective followed them for blocks until they turned into a YMCA to play ping-pong.

    And in all seriousness, if I'm the Auburn players, I organize everyone and skip on the curfew, en masse. Part of college is being an adult. The Auburn coaching staff are not their parents.

    What a swell idea.

    Take a bunch of 4-star and 5-star recruits who have been coddled their entire lives and invited to every party imaginable due to their status for years and enforce an unprecedented curfew in the midst of a 2-7 season.

    I went to a Division I university. The football players at my school won three bowl games and a conference championship during my time there. Players were expected to be in class, and they had better attendance than I did in almost all instances when I had classes with them. But the coach wanted them to be kids and have fun too.

    Dez Bryant says this is a horseshit idea.
