    Comments? Drugs and ammo, far from a small mistake kids make.

    Apparently Texas is the new Dallas. With Ricky's infamy, this guy just killed any potential he may have had

    If true, I am shocked. I really like Ramonce as an athlete. Showed great promise for the next year or 2 of College. I think its a shame that people with such potential get into things like drugs, or things that require guns...

    I live and go to school in Belton (Romance's home town) and have partied with him at my house in the last 3 weeks. He really is a nice and personable guy... but if you all knew the whole story surrounding this you would prob. be shocked.

    Five lbs tells me Ramonce won't be getting off with community service or simple probation. It also tells me that he won't be going pro anytime soon.

    Is that shocked in a "man he's getting screwed" kinda way, or "I'm surprised that's all they got on him" kinda way??

    He's been kicked off since February. He was told to get his grades up before Mack Brown would even talk to him about coming back.

    HAHAHAHAHA

    HAHAHAHAHA

    This is great, shows what UT can produce at RB...
    Williams = Canada
    Benson = Hold out and then injured
    Taylor = Wearin stripes, but not a referee

    BOOMER!!!!!

    I don't really care how much weed he smokes. He can sit around and smoke 12 hours a day if that's what rocks his boat.

    I don't condone the gun thing, though. If he needs to get straightened out, then he needs to get straightened out.

    Ramonce is a good player, and he will be missed on the offense if it comes to that. Jamaal Charles is the real gem of the backfield though, so as long as Charles stays out of trouble, I'm not really worried.

    I was real surprised to see his lawyer go to the "Michael Irvin defense". "It's not his weed. I don't know whose it is, but it's not his..."

    This kind of thing just ticks me off. Not only am I a Longhorn fan and we lose a valuable player. But more importantly, he just goes and blows his future! Most people would die to have his talent and opportunity that he had.....and what does he do with it. I guess some people are their own worst enemy.

    Nah, it's the system at UT-A that is producing all of these felons. They are taught in HS that they ar euntouchable because of their talents, so they get moved ahead. Then they get to UT-A and the same thing happens.....See the list of UT-A "grads" (aka early NFL draft entrants) as well as current/former students. They get in trouble, or can't make the grades, but they still move on thanks to the help of Mack Brown. Just look at RWilliams, Ced Benson, VYoung, and now the new member of the BongHorns!

    5 lbs? $15-20k! Where did he get that type of scratch to even have that bag on him? Shows he was tutored by VYoung to call the cops about a broken window (his car)!!! DUDE!! Just go sell some dime bags to Austin Westlake students, and pay for the broken window!

    Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong, but I also think Ramonce Taylor was involved in some incident (fight???) on 6th Street in November. Mack Brown didn't release the details of it, but it seems like I heard on 1300 in Austin that Taylor was involved. If that's the case, then this guy's been given more than one chance.
