Tyrone Watson charged

Tyrone Watson was arrested and charged on Wednesday for his role in a Jan. 26 assault, which carries a felony. 


"One mistake could conceivably end his career," NMSU athletics director McKinley Boston said.
Since Watson's charge carries a felony, his suspension no longer rests with the basketball team. Boston said Watson's suspension is now through the university.
"He will have an opportunity to appeal the suspension and the campus committee will hear his appeal and either sustain the suspension or recommend to me that he should be re-instated," Boston said.
The social misconduct hearing committee is comprised of staff and faculty from across the university, Boston said. If Watson appeals his suspension with the school, Boston said a decision would likely be reached within 72 hours.

I wish this ordeal would go away already. I feel bad for all parties involved including his team mates.

Maybe one day, the news stories will read: "NMSU wins birth to sweet sixteen!"

Pretty serious mistake to make if what is being reported is true. And if so, the least of his worries is "his career."

Right now, Aggie basketball is the least of Tyrone's worries. Whether or not he plays out the season is nothing compared to what lies ahead with facing a felony charge. While he's already been convicted by the media, all of the facts haven't been presented yet. Let's remember this is one stupid, OK very stupid, big mistake that he made. I'm hoping that somehow, he can learn from this and continue to lead the productive life he's led prior to this. I know there will be plenty responses talking about throwing the book at him, but I hope people don't lose sight of the fact that he's an imperfect human being. Let the judicial system do the judging, and let him hang on to whatever dignity he can. And yes, I have great sympathy for the victim, so don't think that he's been forgotten in all the drama. But, once again, all the facts haven't come out yet, so step back and let the process run its course.

A very good student athlete for 3 1/2 yrs.
One bad decision and it might change his life. Very sad.

Doesn't the Boston wanna be James Hall head up that bogus social misconduct committee over there? Ha. Good luck with. Nothing will happen. Poor guy.
