Wow, if things don't improve off-field and on the field, I don't see
this coaching staff lasting long. There has been multiple players cheating on
math tests, a player stealing another player's I-Pad, another dismissed
from the team...not good.I agree with Eliot in that players get more
attention than a regular student commiting the same crime, but they also get the
attention on the field--which is why they are in the spotlight. it is a
privelege to play football, if the players can't live up to it, they need
to be dismissed. There are a lot of good players with good ethics that could
play, and I'm sure they wouldn't do worse than the last three
weeks.And can Weber State change their football uniforms? It looks
like a mini-might fooball jersey. Get a "W" on the helmet (keep the
face logo on the sleeve or pants, and get rid of the "chiller" font and
get some stripes on the pants and go to silver or gray pants. Start
acting and looking like winners. GO WILDCATS!
Sorry but he is already being treated differently than someone who doesn't
play football because all of the local news agencies have magnified the
situation 100 fold by reporting the incident as news and posting his picture for
all to see. How many people have been caught shoplifting at the Newgate Mall
this year? How many have their picture in the newspaper?
Let me see if I understand this...The two men (at least one of which
is a Wildcat) went into Sears and stole cologne...The next day they went
BACK into the same store (one can only presume why)...They ADMIT to police
that they took the cologne...And NOW they plead NOT GUILTY??No
wonder the Wildcats are 1-3.
Let's see if Weber State has the same commitment to honor and conduct that
some other teams have shown.What would happen to a WSU student who
is NOT a football player, and how can they justify any different treatment?
