    It's a black spot on Few's resume. If "the program" doesn't handle it correctly, then the stain will spread. Asserting it is black mark on the program at this early stage is BS.

    BTW, nice of you to drop in after a three year hiatus. Troll much ?

      There will be repercussions. He'll have to do community service, go on an anti drunk driving speaking tour and his contract may take a hit.

      The university isn't stupid about the optics. It's not as if he has a history of this, as far as we sports fan know.

        USA today reported that he refused to complete field sobriety tests. To me that falls under the category of uncooperative. Obviously news can be garbage, so I hope that's not the case. Point being is that how he handles this will dictate how big of a mark it leaves.

          This is not uncooperative.

            Yeah agreed pretty sure that isn't considered "uncooperative"; he went straight to the breathalyzer

              Whatever you want to view it as is fine with me. Now we're going to argue about the true meaning of "uncooperative ".

              We're all experts on this board. Nobody got hurt is the biggest win imo. In my line of work I see the crap side of this all too often. I have no sympathy.

                Field Sobriety Tests are voluntary in Washington. In fact police officers are required to advise that the tests are voluntary and ask a suspect if they would be willing to perform these tests. If a suspect refuses to do them, that fact can not used as evidence against them.

                    Just think of it as declining them and not refusing them and then uncooperative isn’t the word that comes up. Admittedly I’m assuming the same is true in Idaho. But we don’t need to start throwing out uncooperative because we don’t have any evidence that was the case.

                      This is a far, far worse offense than Heytvelt's shrooms, which didn't endanger anyone's life. (As far as I know, he wasn't accused of driving while high.) The punishment should be proportional to that fact. Anything less is hypocrisy.

                      Full disclosure: I drove under the influence in my late teens/early 20's, but never as a supposedly mature adult.

                          Experts will say that everyone’s ability to engage in divided attention tasks (like driving) is lessened to an appreciable degree at a .08. The degree of impairment may vary from person to person. I may be more obviously impaired at .08 than my buddy would appear when he’s a .11

                            For the Lawyers out there, is it advisable for Mark Few to issue a public apology when this is an ongoing case? My guess would be it is not advisable to admit guilt via a public apology before the case is actually closed.

                              This won’t be swept under the rug. Gonzaga doesn’t function that way. I highly expect that Few will address this publicly. Until things can be addressed legally, he really can’t nor should he make a comment. That isn’t implying it going to trial, but if there is going to be a plea deal it will be worked out before any comments are made. I suspect his lawyer will tell him as much. I’m guessing that he’s likely to see a few games suspension. I also suspect that he’s going use this life lesson to make positive changes in his life. Meantime we can all sit here and speculate and pontificate to hearts desire.
