I can't read all of these because I'd rather not jump head first off a bridge with spike waiting below and my penis tied to a fishing wire. So if this has been said already, I apologize...
I've been firmly in the "forgiving" group untill now. The NCAA rules are as ridiculous and hypocritical as the rules of any dictator in history. I use the word dictator because that is what the NCAA is. They are an evil dictator who polices and patrols it's subjects and when they step out of line of it's views, comes down upon them. No rule that anyone has broken at Ohio State (even that ass clown Pryor) were morally wrong. None broke the law and no one would be codemned by a rational person for their actions in a vacuum seperate from the NCAA.
With that said however, how stupid can someone be? Whether the rule is just or not, it is a rule. A rule that you know about, that you know is being scrutinized more than ever, and a rule that you have already broken MULTIPLE TIMES. I for one am DONE with Herron and Posey. Herron has been my favorite Buckeye for 3 years now and I am done with him. If I lived in a totalitarian society where it was illegal to eat Chicken, I would stop eating freakin Chicken. I love Chicken nearly as much as sex, beer, and football. But after a while, don't you just have to be a grown up and accept the institution you live in? Luke Fickell (we all know Smith wont do it) should step up to the plate and say, "you know what? I don't care what the NCAA does. I do not want people on my team who repeatedly show disregard for the rules and therefore their teammates. Posey, Herron...See you later. You are no longer part of this football team." While he is at it, I say throw Jamaal Berry into that boat as well. He has shown the same characteristics repeatedly. I know that will never happen. No one in college athletics, just-and-fair Fickell included, has the balls to stand up for what is right. Were I in Ohio Stadium when these 2 do come back, since I'm sure they will, I would BOO every time they touch the ball. I HATE booing. Especially at kids whose circumstances are unknown to most of us and didn't break any laws, but there comes a point when you have to decide whether you are going to be a SELFLESS individual or a SELFISH individual. If your situation is so bad that you must continually throw your teammates and the rules aside to make a buck, then get a job, go to a community college, and pay your way through school like so many of us do.
