    I heard it on the news on KXNO just now that Douglas, Bowman and a player named Messers(sp)???? are AWOL from the team. Apparently Ferentz said at some conference that they have been trying to contact them and are even getting snubbed by their familys when trying to locate them. EIU classes started Monday. I can see the message from them now...

    H8 2 W8 2B Sr8 so I B gon Sr8 up. CU L8r......:biglaugh:

    Anyone know who this Messers is that they mentioned being AWOL too?

    Maybe they're working on a transfer. If not, it doesn't help their already damaged public perception. If they do believe they are innocent, this doesn't help in their defense.

    It's how young people communicate today, using only their two index fingers.

    If Miss Teen SC could have texted her answer the other night instead of having to communicate it via the spoken word, the answer probably would have been very profound and thought provoking...maybe not...

    heh, as a young person myself, i knew what it was getting at, but that a little too intense for even me. :confused: also, i guess i'd missed the facebook message posted earlier, so that puts it into context a little bit.

    Speaking of players leaving, Mike Taylor found a new basketball home in Goergia.

    Interesting that these seasoned crime-fighters don't have the wherewithal to locate wrong-doers unless they leave a forwarding address! Doubly interesting that they obviously didn't trust the athletics department...

    I've noticed several comments on this site (other threads) regarding the Iowa City Police Department working this case, which is incorrect. This is not the ICPD; it's the UI Department of Public Safety, roughly the equivalent of mall security!

    Ohhh, wook, the poor widdow felon just wanted a "hug" from his gramma. That makes me feel better about them being lying, thieving p.o.s. thugs.

    It's good to see that the UI Department of Public Safety is "on the ball", after being forced to investigate this crime because the victim basically made them.

    I always wondered where the "mall ninja" ended up working.

    The very sad thing about that article, is the grandmother - to the press anyways - is really downplaying the situation. I sure hope that wasn't her response when he went home.
