...no story yet, but I noticed it in the AP transactions that crossed the wire.

It says for a violation of team policy.

I don't know what that means, but is there any chance he walks on here? Is there any chance Arizona takes him, considering?

Wow...New Mexico basketball has STANDARDS?! Who knew?

He must have stopped going to church. Not Richie McKay's kind of Christian, I guess. :rolleyes:

Still, if Aaron Johnson can't cut it at UNM, Lute won't give him a second glance.

Now Rob Evans, on the other hand.... :lol:

No No No. Bagga is nice and that gets you a spot on Arizona

Two totally different situations, Jason.

Josh can refresh my memory if I'm wrong, but Lute Olson has NEVER taken in a player who's been booted out of another program besides Chris Mills (and even that situation was rather special in its circumstances).

Regardless, Aaron Johnson is better off at Arizona State, if anywhere. Seriously.

I was just joking. There really is no way Olson would allow Johnson on the team especially after getting kicked off a team like NM. I see Johnson playing at a mid major now and I guess the stories about his attitude problems just gained much credibility

Apparently he was arrested with four counts of battery on a police officer. I don't think he'd fit in at Arizona.

I heard Kansas was looking for a new PF. He'd fit in nicely. :devil:

I haven't been able to find anything in NM Media or boards. Can you cite a source, please...

Ha, what a great guy. Remember this?


Aaron Johnson -- Shortly before leaving Penn State, police were called after a fight in which Johnson said he took on six people, including some ex-teammates. "I was a gladiator," he told a reporter.
