Re: Here is ONE Thing We Cannot Blame on CDM
Uh, he can afford much better than some random Uber driver. He's got enough for a chauffer on a part time basis, at least at night when he might be tempted to tip a glass or bottle. Oy vey!
P.S. His biggest mistake may have been DWFII (Driving While Few in Idaho). He'd probably be given a free pass if pull over in Eastern Washington.
I don't get that vibe either, I'm just saying that compared to his salary an uber ride both ways is extremely affordable.
I do not know the man at all, but from what I have heard and observed in TV interviews, I do not see him that way!!!
Big ego, Power hungry, Thinks he is bulletproof.
I'll never understand making that kind of money and drinking and driving ever.
You are correct. If he happened to have an accident and injured or killed someone, this would be completely different story!!!
The thing I find funny about this is all these coaches preach to their players about staying out of trouble and being smart. This guy should be suspended for a few games and told that if this happens again he is out. Thank god he didn't kill anyone.
Mark Few has done a wonderful job for them. I hope that they can do some sort of a review with him and set guidelines for this not to happen again and move forward with him still as the coach. Maybe put him on probation for 5 years saying that if this happens again that he will be relieved of his job!!!
Report: Gonzaga coach Mark Few cited in Idaho for driving under the influence

Gonzaga men's basketball coach Mark Few was cited for driving under the influence on Monday night, according to a police report obtained by The Spokesman-Review.
According to the report, Few was pulled over on Monday around 8 p.m. north of Coeur d'Alene, a popular vacation destination in Idaho. Police received a report that Few was driving erratically and speeding.
Upon pulling Few over, police said he exhibited "several signs of intoxication" and his blood alcohol content samples were .119 and .120. The legal limit is .08.
Gonzaga athletic director Chris Standiford released a statement saying the school is aware of the report regarding Few.
"While the facts of the situation are still being evaluated, we understand its severity and the legal process that will follow," Standiford said. "As a Gonzaga employee, we respect Coach Few's right to privacy and will refrain from further comment at this time."
Few has been the head coach at Gonzaga since 1999, helping the Bulldogs become one of college basketball's most successful programs. He has led the Zags to two Final Four appearances, including a national championship game appearance last season, when Gonzaga started 31-0 before falling to Baylor in the title game.
