Double Thumbs Up on the ACB&G.  Great alumni club group, greeted us with open arms a few years back when we were in Nashville for an early season game.  Real nice folks.  For this game, I would get there early.

My wife has family all along the north shore but mostly around the Highland Park and Highwood area.  Great pizza, beer, and cheese fries at Buffo's!  Lived in Highwood from '86-90 and still get up there on family visits.

Rosy - We just actually moved to Plainfield this last week.  Built a house there, still unpacking.  My son is an Assistant Principal in the Shorewood area (Troy Township schools) over your way.

Ramzy - As usual, excellent writing.  Always look forward to your work and you did not disappoint.  Thank you.

Not just personal gold pants and rings.  Lets also remember that the property also included jerseys, helmets, and cleats, correct?

Even worse, how they collapsed in the last 3 minutes.  Ugh.

Comment 14 Oct 2014

Well, it starts on the university campus with the campus police and administration as this is where the alleged sexual assault took place.  They have an obligation to look into the allegations in the same fashion that Penn State had an obligation to investigate in the Jerry Sandusky case (not only the actions but the coverup).  Local police will logically get involved as well as local and state District Attorney's.  

"We have a situation on campuses across the country where a vindictive student can get a fellow student thrown out of school simply with creating a perception of guilt even after law enforcement finds no crime was committed."

We also have a situation on campuses across the country where entitled athletes feel they can get away with anything because they are part of the program.   Should we disregard allegations by generalizing accusers as "vindictive students" or because Billy Bob, the states attorney wearing an FSU tie, says "nothing to see here, move along"?

That said, do you really believe, based on the published reports to date, that the investigation was followed through fully with no bias, influence by alumni/backers/the football team, conflicts of interest, etc.?  Nothing smells here?

Frimmel - Some might argue that the alleged victim did not receive her due process.  Do you have daughters or maybe a niece?

In just his 2nd game as a starter.  JT is light years ahead of the VTech game performance.  Played today, I believe it would have been a different story.

Will say, excellent pizza.

Best fish taco's I have ever had are at a dive in Old Scottsdale called Loco Patron.  Great food, cheap beer, outside seating...mmmmmm
