Tevin McDonald to play at Eastern Washington

Ugliest. Turf. Ever.

Safety Tevin McDonald, released from the UCLA football team for a violation of team rules, will now serve what seems like additional punishment by playing on the ugliest turf known to man (or woman).

The Bruins’ third-leading tackler, who was also suspended for the Holiday Bowl in December for reportedly failing a drug test, tweeted that he will play next season at Eastern Washington. The Eagles installed bright red turf at Roos Field in 2010, becoming the second school after Boise State to use a non-green surface.

That same season, EWU won the FCS national title over Delaware, going undefeated at home in Cheney, Wash., along the way.

Since McDonald — who started 24 games for the Bruins — is transferring down a division, he should be able to play immediately as long as he is in good academic standing.

      “We”? You aren’t a Bruin alum or even a fan–you’re an unemployed internet troll.

    He should be thoroughly embarrassed. His tweet shows he has yet to mature. No apology to BRUIN fans, teammates nor his parents…….. UCLA will be fine, his loss.

    At least can smoke legally. How do state laws affect school/NCAA regulations?

    Guess the band can play Puff the Magic Dragon at half time.

    Tevin McDonald (and his drug abuse) is one of the reasons the Bruins lost in the Holiday Bowl. Good riddance to him.
