    Sorry to offend you. My point was to show how the crimes were exactly the same, and it kind of hard to argue their similarities.

    I'm not sure what good it does to keep dragging up muck, especially ancient history muck, on the ISU program. That is the job of Squawk trolls, not ISU fans.

    What? Nowhere in that story does it discuss how the suspect(s) stole $4 and a cell phone. Or bashed in a windshield. You leave Jason Berryman's good name out of this!

    There's a difference between sweeping it under the rug, and leaving it in the past. IMO.

    It was never swept under the rug. It was all over the papers and discussed ad nauseum on message boards all over the place. The point is it was almost a decade ago. What good does it do to keep bringing it up? It doesn't do any good.

    Stupid thread title and I won't visit the thread again.

    Hasn't it been about 5 years? Seems like a long time ago to still be a big deal.

    Got it. If there is ever a college coach out there that gets caught partying with coeds, if a Burger King drive-thru is ever robbed, or if a basketball player gets caught drunk hiding under a car, Ill make sure never to draw comparisons.

    "Four Alabama football players call Jason Berryman their role model" is your way of making a comparison? WTF?

    I never can understand why athletes do some of the things they do...

    maybe because most of them have been babied and given everything they have ever wanted since they were in junior high, and have an idea that they 1) are invincible and 2) even if they do get in trouble, somebody will sweep it under the rug because they run fast. Its why University of Texas players don't get drafted into the NFL at an alarming rate anymore, they have been pampered way too much.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.
