I just wish people would be realistic about this and go after the a**hole that did it instead of blaming the university. I'm sure someone will find a way to hold them liable, but it's not as though their AD, their administration, or their football team encouraged someone to do this.

It's a dumb-*** fan doing something stupid. If this happened in Ames and someone pushed Herkey down the stairs, how quick would everyone be to point out that this was isolated and was one idiot that did this.

That's the only point I'm trying to make.

Feel terrible for the kid and think it's sports at its worst.
