So does this mean Auburn will have black and white striped uniforms now with new bracelets?

No better investment than in entitled 20 year olds. What could go wrong?

He was eluding police. I'm sure the police department will now be defunded and TJ Finley released.

According to police officials, Finley was released Thursday from the Lee County (Alabama) Detention Center. Auburn coach Bryan Harsin said the university is aware of Finley's situation and confirmed the quarterback was back in the football complex Thursday. The Tigers open practice Friday.

"He was here. He'll be here tonight, he'll practice tomorrow. We're aware of what's going on," Harsin said.

Finley's attorney, Davis Whittelsey, called the arrest a "misunderstanding."

"The charges pending against my client are the result of traffic violations and a misunderstanding," Whittelsey said. "The charges are in the process of being handled in Municipal Court within the city of Auburn as all traffic citations are. As soon as T.J. learned of the charges, he turned himself in and has been released on a bond he signed for himself."


Good to see he's putting his NIL deal to good use by hiring a good attorney.
