Appears to me that Mr Evers wanted to impress the big boys on campus.... wonder
if they are impressed now???
wow Reno is actually pretty cool about it.
Loved Reno's responses. Great player, loyal friend, and a good man.
Come on, Mahe. If it quacks like a duck, and it smells like a duck-- guess what,
it's a duck! "Are you sure this is OK?" I guess there really is a
sucker born every minute!!
I get tired of newspapers not reporting news but merely trying to sell
advertisements. It's a civil lawsuit for crying out loud. This sort of story
shouldn't be in the paper whether it's an ex-Cougar player or an ex-Ute
player.That being said, did Reno take any English classes during his
Well if you have reservations and it just does not appear to be on the up and up
so to speak, then do not do it.Life 101 begins today.
Do the math, that's 10 gallons per day, per person involved--that's highly
unlikely. Nobody can steal that much gas for that long of a period, and nobody
knows about it. Somethings fishy with this story.
Somethin is smells funny.Didn't anyone actually confront the guy with the
card and say, dude where is all this gas goin? Or just turn off the card? Why
is there are 4 year audit cycle for gas at A-Core? 2006 to 2010 is a very long
time to let something like that go on in a company.
That is a ton of gas. What were they driving Hummers?
"Much to do about nothing"
@RBN:There is an acceptable difference between the written word and
regional or colloquial use of the language. Why don't you go study some more
for the Grammar Detective Exam coming up next week.
"Much to do about nothing" unless of course you are A-Core and had
$56,000 in gas stolen from you. Stories on civil suits appear every day in
every newspaper across the country.
Hey Deseret News posting police!.....how is the 3:35 comment from
"BobbyW" not "offensive"?He calls
"all" former BYU players "goofy", "crazy" and
"weirdos".In no way does that comply with your own posting
policy of fostering civil discourse.Either delete it immediately or
post my comment explaining why you're ignoring your own posting standards.
Those friends are lucky reno is involved or this would not be a civil suit but a
criminal investigation with criminal charges. The company knows reno has money
to pay the bill so they are going this route rather than not getting paid and
pressing charges. Reno is a good friend but he may have hurt his friend by
going through the details with this reporter. He could have said "I am
mortified to find this out and I will contact a lawyer and give a statement when
the time is appropriate". Instead he actually threw his buddy under the
bus and gave the otherside all the info they needed.
If it sounds too good to be true...Walk away, something is wrong.
@ the truth serum.....his friend should have told him the truth. Reno knows it
was wrong and will correct what he has done. This is a civil suit trying to
collect back the money, not a criminal suit. Everyone already knows the young
man did it.
I think Mahe's quote sums it up nicely:"I thought you were
allowed to do it," he said. "I didn't steal no gas. I don't need
gas."Notice the fine grammar here. And this guy went to BYU?
This guy got into BYU? What exactly are they teaching there? What a fine
representative for the school, gasoline theft aside.
I'm not saying reno isn't a good friend and you're right the friend should have
told him the truth. I am saying that he just could have used some PR and legal
advice on how to handle it before he answered. That's all. I'm sure he regrets
going into detail but I'm sure he doesn't regret telling the truth which was the
right thing to do.
Reno Mahe is a wonderful representative of BYU. He is a good man with integrity
