Honey Badger Award for Extracurricular Excellence: Week 20
As would be expected, Week 20 of the Honey Badger Award for Extracurricular Excellence award race saw things pick up dramatically as classes wind down, finals are taken, and well, the Washington State Cougars exist. Mike Leach’s squad of malcontents are made a power play over the past week tying the award race with the Alabama Crimson Tide who had stood alone on top for some time following their four man assault for snack funds.
Cougars Toni Pole, Teondray Caldwell and Logan Mayes were each involved in individual incidents over the past seven days. Pole was issued a citation last week for making a false statement to a Pullman police officer who was called to a scene for a noise complaint. Pole allegedly gave the officer both a false name and birth date on the officer’s first visit, only for the same officer to return later on a second call, upon which he recognized pole and arrested him for the original false statement. Pure genius.
Teondray Caldwell was a part of a group of Cougar players that were denied entry to a party and took out his frustrations by punching a young man on the porch of the premises. Charges had not been filed as of the time of this article, but regardless, dumb. Something about Pullman parties brings out the worse in the Cougs.
And, finally, Cougar Logan Mayes was arrested for backing into a car in a local parking lot and leaving the scene of the accident, earning him a hit-and-run charge. Wonderful. Kudos to the Cougars who are ramping things up in their pursuit of the Honey Badger.
UT-San Antonio’s CheRod Simpson was arrested last week as well with his father Rodney when the two men refused to leave a pool at at apartment complex which they had crashed. CheRod Simpson was ultimately charged with criminal trespassing, public intoxication, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest after he made an attempt to intervene in the arrest of his father whom immediately scuffled with officers upon their arrival at the pool.
Like father like son — just heart-warming.
