According to requested law enforcement documentation, narcotics agents found a quarter of a pound of marijuana and almost $4700 in a University of Alabama football player's dorm room last week. Media reports indicate that agents identified Kurt Freitag as one of the participants in a drug transaction. But, there is no word yet on any charges against him. Freitag is a sophomore tight-end from Buford, Georgia. He has not played this season.

that same system is being blamed for at least 1 death in Arkansas.
