    After his 2010 DUI arrest :

    "I'm embarrassed to be in this position," Blackmon said. "I'm truly sorry to my family, to my friends and to Oklahoma State all together. I look forward to redeeming myself and proving to everybody that this isn't who I am. I'm not this guy. I'm humbled by this experience and I will grow from it.
    After his 2012 DUI arrest :

    "I'm done," Blackmon said. "Right now, I'm done with all that. ... I can't promise you 10 years down the road that I'm going to be done. I just know that as of right now and what I can speak of. I'm looking forward to getting ready to play football and putting this in the past."
    I guess he proved he IS that guy. What a waste.

    Wow, that sucks. Great talent, it's a shame to see he can't keep things together to utilize it.

    Glad the Jags traded up and stole him from us.

    Shows the importance of the interviews and background checks in evaluating talent. Contrary to what a lot of people claimed at the time, Blackmon had repeated shown that he was a "me first" type of guy during his time in college. I'd also note Richie Incognito's suspension at this time.
