So as you all have heard and can watch below, incoming Sooner Freshman Josh Jarboe's freestyle that made its way onto youtube has got him in some hot water.

Well Coach Stoops decided that the freestyle was the final straw and has dismissed the immensely talented Jarboe today.

“We are disappointed in this outcome, but our complete review and this final decision is in the best interest of our program” Stoops said. “We outlined for Josh the expectations we had for him when he arrived and, unfortunately, those expectations have not been met. Josh needs to learn from this experience. We hope he can move forward in a positive manner.”

As we all know Jarboe had been arrested on a charge that he had a stolen gun on school grounds but those charges had been reduced and Stoops said that he would take him back.

With Stoops' track record of giving some  kids that deserved a second chance, I was all for giving Jarboe a second chance, but when your freestyle rap hits the interent and it talks about you shooting a gun, etc. (I am a fan of rap and I know what is usually said in the lyrics but this kid rapping about a gun and shooting people was really stupid. Just rap about making it rain or something that doesn't correspond with something you almost lost your scholorship over), he had to have known that Coach Stoops is very no nonsense when it comes to the guys on their second chance and he did what he had to do and gave him the boot.

I am sad to see this very talented WR leave the program because our WR's aren't exactly the best right now and he would have came in and helped sooner rather than later but for the national image of the program, this had to be done.
