Duke CB Burton dismissed from team

Posted October 16, 2012

— Duke redshirt freshman cornerback Tim Burton has been dismissed from the team for violation of program policy, head coach David Cutcliffe announced on Tuesday.

A native of Hollywood, Fla., Burton played in Duke’s first seven games of the year and registered seven total tackles and a pair of pass breakups. He also returned 13 kickoffs for 260 yards for a 20.0 yards per return average.

Duke hosts North Carolina on Saturday night at Wallace Wade Stadium. Kick-off is set for 7 p.m., and tickets are available at GoDuke.com.

    It was his 2nd chance and he fail it.Most schools will give a player a 3rd chance but not 2 in 1 year.He did the right thing.Now Now tob will keep his dope players on the team as we all know.UNC will throw their dope palyers off after the 2nd test.

    Since when did a State player get charged with multiple felonies, and it not get mentioned in the media?

    Good move by Coach Cut. He seems like he is trying to run a clean program.

    Way to go Coach Cut. Duke programs are a fine example of what
    needs to be done and how things need to be handled.

    Other coaches and administrations need to watch and model what they see.

    good move....kick him off. I sure dont want to be like those Cheaters down the road and keep players on a team at all cost.

    Yet when the State player was charged with multiple felonies, not a word from the media. Bias much?

    Says the person from the school with the second largest academic scandal in college history.

    Of course, you always have the fake treatments of your hospital to fall back on.
