    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?
