Will we ever see Kiko Alonso in an Oregon uniform again? The troubled linebacker is facing his second arrest in as many years.

Oregon linebacker Kiko Alonso, last seen teaming up with the Ducks' D to turn in a bang-up showing in the 2011 spring game, served a season-long suspension in 2010 for a DUi arrest. Look for him to help out the team in a similar capacity next year, following a weekend arrest for first degree burglary, first degree criminal trespassing, and second degree criminal mischief. SB Nation's Addicted To Quack anticipates Alonso's dismissal, barring a miraculous legal turnaround:

Just six days after George Schroeder wrote that "Alonso's redemption is worthy of celebration," this happens. The only way that I can see Alonso staying on the team is if the charges are dropped completely. I doubt the incident will be severe as the charges initially suggest, but Kiko has had his second chance, and I doubt Chip will give him a third.
