How many strikes?

How many strikes does it take for a basketball player to ride the bench or leave the team at Penn State?

We soon may find out in the case of prize recruit Taran Buie. Today's report details strike two.

With 43,000 students about to return to campus, how this case is handled will be watched closely. There's an excessive and underage drinking problem around here, most everyone will agree.

The basketball program should be offering mentoring to the recruit who is already on campus. Whatever is happening is not working, apparently.
