Yesterday news broke that that Tyler Olander was arrested for trespassing while on Spring Break in Panama City, Florida. Here are the details from the Courant:

Olander was arrested at Panama City Beach early Thursday and booked at 6:51 a.m., according to the Bay County Sheriff's Office. His case will be heard in court Friday at 4 p.m., according to the sheriff's office. The official charge is trespassing in a structure or conveyance. "Conveyance" means any motor vehicle, ship, vessel, railroad car, trailer, aircraft, or sleeping car; and to enter a conveyance includes taking apart any portion of the conveyance.

We don't know anything beyond that yet yet, but it sounds like several of UConn's players took UConn's tournament ban as a chance to take part in a college tradition and go away for Spring Break. That, in turn, appears to have lead to another college tradition: making a dumb, regrettable mistake. Assuming this is all minor it shouldn't be a massive deal.

But, I'm sad to say that this doesn't look like the only mistake Tyler Olander made this week, because a video of him freestyling appeared online today and dear lord is it awful.

And yes, if you're wondering, that does appear to be Enosch Wolf beatboxing in the background. It's hard to come up with words to describe this, but I have two thoughts: First, congratulations to Ed Nelson on not being UConn's worst rapper. Second, I'm sure that Toby Kimball did this same thing to James Brown songs back in 1964, but they didn't have YouTube then, so we wouldn't know.

It's also worth noting that the Barstool Sports article that first had this video implied that Olander may have passed out on someone's boat, which, if true, would explain the trespassing charge.
