Marshall the university of choice for criminals kicked off other teams...

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — A player kicked off Tennessee's football team has transferred to Marshall three weeks after his arrest on drunken driving charges.
Freshman tight end Lee Smith is the latest player to land at Marshall after being dismissed elsewhere.
Smith, who practiced with the Thundering Herd on Thursday, has to sit out one season due to NCAA transfer rules, said Marshall sports information director Randy Burnside. Smith, 18, was arrested Aug. 2, a few days before the start of preseason practice, after a Tennessee campus police officer saw him driving on the sidewalk.
