Few's response is woefully inadequate. In his statement, he never says a

word about his irresponsibility in getting behind the wheel of a car & putting everyone's life on the road in danger due to his having had too much alcohol to drunk. His only mention was how he won't be repeating his "lapse in judgment," but never owns up to what that was. For all we know that just means he'll make sure he's not caught next time. Not a word about getting his drinking under control, seeking rehabilitation or counseling or, best of all, giving up drinking altogether since he obviously can't handle it. He also left out any words that show he has at least some insight of how many families every year are devastated because a loved one has been killed or seriously maimed by a drunk driver & how ashamed he is that he could have contributed to another such tragedy the night he did what he did. It's all well & good that he has to miss Midnight Madness, 2 exhibitions & the first game. But that would be a whole lot more meaningful if that announcement was accompanied by Few saying that during those missed events, he will be at least undergoing a professional substance evaluation to see what his problem is & that he will be following through with any recommendations the evaluators make. The first step toward deserving a second chance is acknowledging what the problem is & a commitment to seriously address that problem. Coach Few did not come close to doing that, & the university---by its actions---did not & could not do that for him. In fact the university failed its own students by not requiring the coach, who these students look up to & see as a role model, to pay any serious price at all for his misconduct.
