Jamere Holland has been dismissed from the University of Oregon football team for a series of bizarre Facebook postings. Holland posted to Facebook twice after Oregon suspended linebacker Kiki Alonso after Alonso received a DUI on Saturday.
After a well meaning fan informed Holland that his Facebook post’s were public to everyone, Holland responded with this posting:
This isn’t Holland’s first struggle with authority, he didn’t play in this past Rose Bowl against Ohio State after being declared academically ineligible, and he transferred to Oregon from USC after butting heads with Pete Carroll. I’m guessing Oregon might have simply suspended Holland over these Facebook missives if he were a model student-athlete otherwise, but given his past it probably wasn’t a hard decision to simply cut bait. Although maybe not even if he were squeaky clean, it’s hardly a good idea to drop some f-bombs directed at your coach in a public arena. Remember kids, Facebook is serious business.
