Former 49er Mayfield arrested in Georgia

Former 49ers basketball player DeMario Mayfield was arrested in Athens, Ga., early Monday for armed robbery and loitering and possession, the Athens Banner-Herald is reporting.
Mayfield, Charlotte's leading scorer last season before he was thrown off the team for breaking athletic department rules, had recently signed to play his final year of college eligibility at Morehead State.
 
Mayfield was arrested in Charlotte in 2012 for misdemeanor marijuana possession, a charge that was later dropped. He graduated from UNC Charlotte last December.

oxymoron from a moron

It sounds like he should enroll in Athens. He'd fit right in with their typical student athletes, though the basketball players don't get away with as much as the football players. What a shame.

Obviously America is getting a better class of criminal these days. We shouldn't be surprised that when some McDonald's require a college degree to flip burgers, that other fields of endeavor would follow.

This should help validate the Major extension. #GO_NINERS! #FAMILY #JUSTWAITTILL2015!!!!

This behavior is usually reserved for the football players in Chapel Hill. I'm glad to see other schools have decided to help carry the load.

Another one of the recruits with strong moral character

I'm glad the O chooses to publish this story even though Mayfield is no longer in Charlotte and the story is not relevant to Charlotte. It gives some haters a chance to post their snarky comments.
If nothing else, this proves Charlotte did the right thing by cutting Mayfield loose.

Snarky or not, Major recruited him and identified him as the first player he would ever sign as a head coach. Right thing or not, he lettered for the 49ers and was a starter. It is relevant.

^^^^^
Yes, because character analysis during a rushed recruiting period is clearly the same as character analysis over many days of having a person on the team and seeing them every day.
Thanks for throwing Major under the bus for recruiting the guy when he was left with a severe lack of bodies by the previous regime and giving Major no credit for getting rid of him even though Alan had to know it would result in on court losses. You're being unfair.

Huh?

Desmond Oliver was an assistant coach at Georgia. He recruited DeMario Mayfield to Georgia. He would have known plenty about his character. Major hired Oliver to his staff and DeMario followed shortly after.

Major inherited a 19 win team that was returning everyone except one senior. Briscoe, Trevin, and Colby were not on scholarship in Lutz's last year.

If you kick everyone off the team, don't cry that there's not enough "warm bodies". If you blame kicking everyone off the team on character issues, don't replace them with pothead armed robbers.

10:28, I am so glad that 1:03 PM schooled you. Get your head out of his butt and figure it out. Major identified three young players in his first year who each left the program: Mayfield, Luka and E-Vic. Now, that's a program trending in a unique direction. Just ask the AD. And, I threw Major a bone. Clark might have left any coach.

1:03 They lost 3 seniors Anderson, Harris, and Coleman.

@1:03
Desmond Oliver was coaching at Canisus when Mayfield played at Georgia. He may have participated in the recruiting process, but he did not coach Mayfield at Georgia. That was the 2009-10 season.
The comment about figuring people out recruiting them versus actually coaching them still stands and applies to Oliver, Major, or any other coach you'd like to name.
I'm still waiting for some hater to give Major some credit for cutting Mayfield loose, but I guess that doesn't fit the agenda.

If we had a "good" coach he would only stay here a few years before he went somewhere bigger/better!

Can't recruit with that hairline. #alanmajorshairline

If Majors would have taken the time out of his 'busy' schedule to mentor and guide this young man he may not have found himself in this situation,, like so many other of his players who have left the program.

LOL. Only Major's mentoring kept Mayfield from becoming a mass murderer. Isn't baseless speculation fun?

The 49er baseball team continually underachieves and disappoints and don't get near the negative attention that Alan get. This prove that UNCC is a RACIST!!!!!! and it fans need to go on and keep cheering for NC State or the tarheels.
WE DONT NEED YOU AS FANS! HATERS!!!!!

Idiot.....the entire baseball and softball programs together don't eat up near as much money and Major's salary alone does and they have limited budget for players, not 12 full scholarships so it has nothing to do with Mr.(Lack of)Personality being black. And I for one am glad the extra three years he has now has got recruits beating our door down to sign now !

What recruits are beating down our door in basketball? The idiot stating baseball is unsuccessful has no clue. Baseball is at the top of the league EVERY year.

I would love for our basketball program to start having the same success level the baseball, golf, and soccer programs usually have.

what did Major Know and when did he know it.

What (if anything) does this have to do with Clarke and Nickelberry.

What does this mean about future recruits? (are we the new Cinny?)
