UCLA policy is that after a third positive drug test, you get a one game suspension. Which comes to mind, what happens with the first 2 positive tests? Regardless, all 4 of the players are starters on the Bruins team. Sheller has started every game this season, while Marvray is tops for the club in catches, yards, and receiving touchdowns. Josh Smith only has 3 catches on the season following transfering from Colorado, but is the teams starting kick returner and is listed as #2 behind Marvray. Sophomore Morrell Presley has started every game at FB this year, which is a hybrid blocking and pass catching position in the pistol offense.
Head Coach Rick Neuheisel was asked 2 weeks ago if his team had a marijuana problem, and he said, "I don't have a comment on any of that." I don't know, but it kind of looks like they do.
