    Dismissing Student Athletes

    Both Andy and Murphy as well as Matt and miller wanted Chuck Reeds head for telling everyone that the 3 players should be kicked off the team.

    Chuck was wrong to overreact but his thought process is accurate. ISU Football does not have a ton of wins over the last few years. What we do have is our integrity. Chuck I think was trying to save our integrity. I also wanted the players removed from the team when I read the news paper and I took my ISU flag down. I then had to explain to my kids why I took it down.

    Re: Dismissing Student Athletes

    I can appreciate that sentiment. Without rehashing (no pun intended) the previous five threads on the subject - I think, if they possessed and/or used, some game-loss punishment is in order. And I'd like some openness in what happened and how the decisions came to pass

    However, I don't think 3 players allegedly smoking pot really puts ISU's integrity in jeapordy.

    They arent even convicted of smoking it. We can make as many unofficial assumptions we want, but they are going to trial for possession, not use of marijuana.

    Dear Lord..... Fine - my mistake.

    I'm willing to stick my head in the sand and assume they were going to use the seeds to grow because they feel it's a pleasant looking household ornamentation.

    There is no burden of proof on a FB coach, like there is in a court room.

    Brother - you'd think it's enough that I put "if" and "allegedly" in there......

    Re: Dismissing Student Athletes

    Here's an idea. Paul Rhoads won't make his decisions based off of what this board thinks. Let's not worry about it so much and let due process run it's course.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Dismissing Student Athletes

    Wait...someone got suspended? For pot? I had no idea...

    I also thought it was universally accepted that pot is illegal and morally deplorable...

    If anyone thinks otherwise, and believes that smoking pot is no different than underage drinking I would love to hear your argument.

    I also don't think that too much pot can kill you, or have any detrement to your body...if you have any evidence proving otherwise I would love to see it.

    Due process must be something that only applies to Cyclone athletics then, because whenever this sorta thing happens at other schools (and just for keepngoal, I'll point out that there have been threads here about PSU athletes, as well as Missouri, Nebraska, and Colorado), due process goes right out the window.

    My problem it's a negative association that we don't need. WEre trying to win games and do it the right way. This behavior or aleged activity affects our ability to say we run a cleaner program than the others.
