I have three degrees.

Just wondering why you would bust a college student's balls about football at a school that you didn't attend. Not stirring up a pot or anything.

Every person that watches the game, be he for or against.
So you think that athletes should be held to a different standard than everyone else? For playing football?? They contribute what to society? You bitch about ghetto thugs on one thread, then glorify them on another, because they wear a jersey that you like.

Not trying to bust his balls about this. He started it by saying they should throw the kid off the team. We don't know the circumstances on this charge only what is reported. Liquor is not an illegal drug. Who in college didn't take a drink or two? I'm not saying it's right to drive drunk. And before you even start Spots I have been a Bama fan my entire life. I went to high school with Lee Roy Jordan, Jimmy Dawson. I went to college in Texas because they offered me a better chance at the degree I was looking for.

I don't care what these athletes contribute to society. Some are gonna make good model citizens others are gonna be thugs. Let them do what they are there for. As an end result send the good ones on. The rest will learn to do good or pay the price. Can you imagine if we get rid of Football at say" your favorite" college. How long would it last. Not many tickets sold for Debateing Wars!!!!

Because thousands of people will never fill up a stadium to watch you study for a test. Football players make millions for universities and get far from an equal payback. If the Geno kid has never been in trouble and has done everything his coaches have asked of him, then a 1 game suspension is sufficient. If he gets another dui, then he has proven that he is a hard head and he gets a much harsher punishment. We should all want this kid to stay in school, get a degree, and become a tax paying contributor to society.

You are the one taking a college student to task for expressing an opinion, not I.

I don't even disagree with you. I think that the suspension is stupid. The schools should pay these mongoloids and not keep them in indentured servitude. The NCAA should at least be honest and stop talking about "student athletes" and "integrity."

Do you know where the phrase "student athlete" comes from?

I know what it means. The term Student athelete is claimed to have been started by many groups. But i am sure it was not I who started it.
