DeMarcus Granger not satisfied with Fiesta Bowl swag

New, comments

Oklahoma will be without starting defensive tackle DeMarcus Granger for the Fiesta Bowl.

Granger was sent home by head coach Bob Stoops after he was arrested for shoplifting at a Burlington Coat Factory in a Tempe mall. I didn't know black dudes stole shopped there.

"Mr. Granger removed an anti-theft device from a jacket and then concealed the jacket in a bag. He exited the store walking past the cash registers without paying for the jacket," Mike Horn, a spokesman for the Tempe Police Department, said in a statement.

Here's a police sketch of the incident:

"DeMarcus Granger was sent home yesterday, will not play and we'll deal with the situation when we get back," Sooners coach Bob Stoops said Monday during a media day at University of Phoenix Stadium. "If there's anything further, we'll see."
