08:08 AM ET 12.23 | UCLA safety Tevin McDonald will not play in the Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl after violating a team policy, Coach Jim Mora said. The junior tested positive for marijuana, according to a person familiar with the situation who was not authorized to comment. Under UCLA policy, a player is suspended for one game after testing positive for a third time. A fourth positive test can result in a player's scholarship being revoked.

No problem if you test positive twice!
Only on a clear day do U-C-L-A.

There once was an athlete from LA
Who's nose prompted him to stray
Sweet smell of cannabis
He thought would bring bliss
But instead, it brought him dismay.

Well seeing as its his 4TH flunked test, he is one toke away from losing his scholarship. Don't know about you, but I would call that a big deal.

Baylor lock for the game.

Yep, that stuff sure is an inhancer... What did they think he was going to do? Set up a munchie stand on the forty yard line? I think the sports world need take the following of Colorado and Washington...

Let me get this correct...he's missing a bowl because he didn't miss a bowl?

Oh, dear, another apprentice drug dealer ready to hit the streets of El LAY. Tax that, Jerry!

What did you expect from Thug U?

Is this going to be against the rules in Colorado and Washington or wherever Marijuana is sold? Doesn't seem right that they would have rules against using weed, but Notre Dame players can regularly get arrested for underage drinking (and beating up cops) and there's no problem with that.

Can you imagine an Oregon Ducks team if they enforced Marijuana suspensions?? They wouldn't be able to field a team. Come on folks a little Marijuana is harmless. You have to commend a program who doesn't waiver and enforces their policies....unlike the Oregon who changes the rules of the game at every opportunity.
