    Pretty sure Leath is the final appeal.

    He should have never put himself in the situation. As a student athlete and a representative of the university in the public eye, whether guilty or not, is bad publicity. Add into how he acted throughout his suspension, I have no sympathy for him. A student athlete on scholarship are held to same standards as students on scholarship, broke rules in place within the student code, it was his stupid decision to put himself in that situation. Everyone should just move on.

    No bubu can appeal to the board of regents and it could still be over turned.

    Re: Should Bubu appeal President Leath decision to the BOR?

    He should finish up his degree and move on with life. Use this as a learning experience of not putting yourself in bad situations and be careful of the people you are hanging out with. Whether he raped her or not, he put himself in a position where it was in question - as someone in the spotlight, he should have been smarter than this. He should be lucky it was just basketball that he lost. This is not much different than what "real life" will be for him........if this circumstance would have happened later in life when he was in the middle of his career - if he was my employee, i would have fired him just for the bad publicity (guilty or not). Like i said earlier, he should be grateful he has the opportunity to finish school and get a degree and begin his life.

    Handled the whole thing with nothing but class.

    Was a model student athlete every other day at ISU. Unless there is something else behind the scenes let him play.

    We all make mistakes and deserve a second chance.

    Except his "mistake" was a very big error in judgement.

    I'm all for second chances and such, but also for consequences. He will still be able to get a degree.

    I get that charges were dropped and that is the legal side of things, but President Leath still has the ability to determine who is representing our university.

    Big deal. You know how many college kids make the "mistake" of having relations with a drunk girl who has a bf every weekend.

    Yes he should appeal.

    As far as what Bubu does with the appeal, I could really care less. He made his bed and needs to sleep in it and suffer the consequences of his actions.

    This kind of attitude is what lead Bubu in trouble in the first place. Just because it goes on does not make it acceptable. I am sure you would feel a little bit different if it was your daughter who Bubu and his cohort took to an abandoned house. Yes the girl also put herself into a situation but it does not excuse Bubu from being judged or criticized.

    Bubu could have been a man and walked away or stopped the situation from happening. Definitely the choice I would expect from my son vs. stating "Big Deal".

    Voting you redneck father of the decade.

    isufbcurt talking to his recently raped daughter:

    "Well Nancy, boys will be boys (chuckle chuckle chuckle)! Whaddya say you and I go down to the Walgreens and buy some morning after pills then go to the clinic and get you tested for STDs you little knucklehead!"

    Big deal? Really?

    By definition, having sex with a person who is not able to give consent is rape..and that's sad if you brush it off as "everyone does it"

    I'd love for you to look her father in the eye and say exactly what you just posted and see how he responded.

    Regardless of what happened that night and the events after that night, Leath didn't make a decision without knowing the possibilities that arise from his decision in favor or not in favor of Palo. The BOR isn't going to overturn this.
