Crap like that will continue until these sports officials decide to put a stop to them. Ban them from ever playing again, I say. Or cancel the sports programs.

This country would be a hell of a lot better if schools concentrated on learning instead of playing games.

When I was struggling through GT, we were in competition for the national championship in football (ended up sharing it with Colorado). We had one professor that was actually upset that we were even interested. He would say, "It's a sad day when Georgia Tech is known for its athletics and not its academics!". He has a point, but we went to the games anyway!

University of Miami has had a long reputation of giving scholarships to criminals and guys who should never be on the grounds of any learning institution, unless they were being payed to pick up trash serving community service.

''I think this will affect the image of this program, but in a very positive way,'' Coker said. ``This won't be a negative for the University of Miami.''

Coker has apparently lost control and the alums want him out. Not an alum-not there anyway, Another one choked a girl at a bar, kicked in someone's car door and was suspended before this happened. Am a Canes fan-I live here-longer than I lived in Ill. There is an overemphasis on athletics here, Ga tech, Fl. State, Notre Dame, Auburn and others.

Have a good friend, originally from the beverly area in Chi who went to UofMiami. He's over involved. The alumni are very active and too influential. Kid pissed me off a couple years ago with that same UM remark and today, hate to say I agree.

Went to school to learn and get a degree so I could enter the arena and, at least, open a few doors. After that, up to me!

These bozos get cars from alums, have money, get favorite treatment and for the most part are turds in a punchbowl! Too many heads turn the other way when some of them pull some sh!t. A lot of it doesn't make the Miami Herald or News channels.

This college BS gets diarhhaed in to pro sports where the stuff continues. Imagine, a guy, Pro Ball player, killing his pregnant GF because he didn't want to pay child support!

Kinda feel bad for Don Strock, coach at FIU, which is close to home. Don was a QB with Dolphins for awhile-never made it. Pretty decent sort of guy.

Always like to see Fl. teams win....except the Marlins when they play the CUBS!!! Last year I was a temporary Sox fan during the series-Special dispensation!LOL! Wore a Cub hat with Sox pinned over the Cubs name.
Graduated Northen Ill. but never remained a fan.

Sports "stars" are over paid and over hyped entertainers. If it wasnt for the spectators, there would be no sports programs/leagues. Remember when the original entertainers were called court jesters?

Hell NO! They aren't smart enough for college. Most of the folks that were on that field will be a burdon on society when they finish their college career. These guys are going to school with majors in burger flipping. The guys that were trying to stomp on folks while they were on the ground should be kicked off the team and out of that school and declared by the NCAA as ineligible for future college athletics.

I have mixed feelings about college sports. Most of the time I'm against them being televised or even selling tickets. That would take away the incentive to bring in the criminals.

Then I think about the few fellas I grew up with who would have paid even less attention in school (high school mostly) if not for sports. So I get left in a lurch.

One thing I know. I'll never root for a convicted criminal like the Ram's Leonard Little, or a football system like Mizzou which let that poor boy from Kirkwood die last year then hauled his body around school trying to "decide what to do"

I'm real imporessed with Miami's harsheness. Suspending players for just one game, when the next game is against another winless team. Wow, now there's a commitment. One player, ONE, is suspended indefinately, and that's the criminal that used his helmet as a weapon. He should be kicked out of school, not just off the team. But it is the University of Miami Criminals, where winning means more than ANYTHING.

I knew that...it's all good! I can take it!

I actually went to a UGA v. GT game once. Weirdest experience. I thought I was in the twilight zone. We stayed with some gals that went there and they "showed us the town". I'm glad I didn't go to Athens. Too much culture for me!

While we're yucking it up....

1) What does the average University of Georgia (UGA) player get on his SATs?

........Drool.

(2) What do you get when you put thirty-two UGA cheerleaders in one room?

........A full set of teeth.

(3) How do you get a UGA cheerleader into your dorm room?

........Grease her hips and push.

(4) How do you get a UGA graduate off your porch?

........Pay him for the pizza.

(5) How do you know if a UGA football player has a girlfriend?

......There is tobacco spit on both sides of his pickup.

(6) Why is the UGA football team like a possum?

........Because they play dead at home and get killed on the road.

(7) What are the longest three years of a UGA football player's life?

........His freshman year.

(8) How many UGA Freshmen does it take to change a light bulb?

........Freshman can't-- that's a sophomore course.

You could add...

Why does UGA have astroturf on it's football field?

To prevent the cheerleaders from grazing.

{you can replace UGA with any team, I don't have a dog in this fight either. }
