    Horrible decision. Even worse if its permanently over.

    Crack down on the trouble makers. Don't screw over the vendors, alumni, and responsible students.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: *****LEATH VEISHEA PRESSER LIVE STREAM*****

    I know I'm in the minority, but I don't see why they can't have the parade. Most of the students don't care about the parade compared to the number of alum that do. I have been looking forward for weeks to taking my son (who is too young to understand why he can't go to the parade) on Saturday. Not to mention all the students who spent hours and thousands of dollars on the parade.


    I have no problem with suspending all nightly activities, concerts, and anything that is at any risk of safety issues. Just don't see why we can't keep the parade. Very upset as an alum.

    Re: *****LEATH VEISHEA PRESSER LIVE STREAM*****

    Students, and I know it's just a minority of students, picked a bad year to pull this kind of crap. You've got a fairly fresh perspective sitting in the president's office and I don't think it's any surprise that he looked at the history and wondered why it hadn't already been killed. It's too bad that a lot of things that were more than an excuse to get wasted will get killed as collateral damage here, but its hard to say that it's not the right call at this point.

    My guess would be (and this is a callback to when we had Homecoming issues in high school) that they don't want the kids who get together and work on the floats to have a chance to congregate through an organized event like that.

    Re: *****LEATH VEISHEA PRESSER LIVE STREAM*****

    Why cancel it this year? All you are doing are eliminating the good things. The partying for this coming weekend is already set in motion. Probably just making it worse by cancelling the other stuff.

    I would assume they will refund everyone's money for the concerts?


    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    'Guess we shouldn't party or drink or have all our friends come to town this weekend now...'

    - no student after hearing that announcement

    Re: *****LEATH VEISHEA PRESSER LIVE STREAM*****

    Why cancel the parade? You're not punishing the rioters by canceling VIESHEA events as they wouldn't be attending them anyway. If you want to punish the rioters, shut down the bars and alcohol sales

    I agree, it's too bad they couldn't keep the daytime activities. I feel that they were going to need an increased police presence the next few nights anyway and whether or not they have a parade isn't going to have an impact on the night activities.

    I guarantee the students will still rage this week and weekend regardless. It's not like 'rioting' was one of the planned events. It just happens.
