I think, Moose, that if I messed up my life and found myself at OU, I might turn to drugs as an escape as well.

With the pre-trial hearing we should get more information. We might get an indication if the drug lord professor is willing to make a deal with prosecutors. I would think he'd take a good deal if they offer him something fair, although that would definitely mean prison time. This is one of those cases where he is guilty as hell and the circumstances that will probably come out at trial will just make him look much worse.

I think OU has to be hoping he does take some kind of deal. If he goes to trial it will sensationalize it and get a lot more press coverage (covfefe, if you will). A trial might mean testimony by OU students who detail how he used them to sell drugs and partied with them on drugs inside his home. Plus, it seems highly probable, he was sexually involved with some of these students. That makes the story a lightning rod for reporters.

You know, I'd think this is a lot funnier if I didn't have to spend so much time shopping for ketamine now. It used to be one could just make the short drive to Rochester.

This is the last weekend before the pre-trial hearing for OU drug professor. I've been thinking, maybe this case will blow up even bigger. For instance, what if the prof had OU chemistry students making the drugs? With school equipment? Breaking Bad fans know what I'm talking about. But, I then realized, OU chem students probably can't even cook poptarts, let alone freaking Ketamine.

At any rate, you gotta believe this guy is thinking about making a run for it. I guess it depends how much cash he has laying around, but if he does have a cool million or two it might be his best option to try to acquire some fake docs and flee for Central America. He's guilty AF and if prosecution shows up Monday with more damning evidence he might not get another chance.

Have a nice weekend, professor!

This guy must be a congenital idiot. Hosting parties for college students? Nope, that kind of thing doesn't get around. After all, aren't college students usually known for their discretion?

That said, if the good prof wanted to use ketamine or cocaine in the privacy of his own home, I wouldn't lift a finger to stop him. As the official Christo-anarchist of Titans basketball, I believe that it's his body to do with as he sees fit without my approval. Not that I approve, mind you. I just don't think it's the government's business to be a nanny to a sovereign individual. Way too much of that going on already. But that debate is for another day.

Of course I also believe that OU, or any employer, has a right to throw him out of a job if he's unwilling to abide by their drug policy. Or any morals clauses in his contract.

But pushing junk to his students is mindboggling. He may be the ditziest drug baron I've ever heard of...and that takes some doing. I'd give him a $25 fine for manufacturing and distributing and a life sentence for stupidity.

Latest news article: http://www.theoaklandpress.com/general- ... or-hearing

Nothing new except it states the cops forced their way in with a warrant in hand.

I wonder if this guy will get ESPN3 in prison? It would be a shame for him to miss those OU v. IUPUI games.

Here's another article with video, including an interview with Professor Ketamine himself outside the courthouse. Guilty AF!

http://www.clickondetroit.com/news/defe ... about-case

Best quote regarding the story so far:

"Oh my goodness ... ketamine? I was thinking like Adderall or weed, or something. That's a big jump. Wow," said student Nichole Hill.

No press covfefe about the OU drug prof lately. Hopefully things heat up at trial in the next month or two.

Meanwhile, I wonder if OU will make this guy an offer to be Dean of their medical school?: http://www.chronicle.com/article/Medica ... _hp_latest

What is with these guys from California? First, Oakland, and then LA. Nevertheless, the Dean is quite the party animal.

Not enough reporting on OU druggy professor IMO. The latest article says that he failed to get his case dismissed: http://www.theoaklandpress.com/general- ... -drug-case

I think the press will really pick it up once the trial begins. That is scheduled to begin in January. That's bad news that we have to wait so long, but good news that we can use it to rip on OU during conference play.

If you get called for jury duty you know what to do.
