We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Attrition fellas, strictly attrition without doing the horribly unpopular medical hardships. The medical hardships have to become few and far between otherwise the rest of the NCAA may cry foul and demand fairness between all members. Fairness does not win you three out of four. The PROCESS does and now the process includes felonies where necessary.
Damn! roll Tide!!!!
You Gumps feel the hate yet?
It was supposed to be amateur athletics but it hadn't been amateur for years.
There should be an asterisk next to all of those BCSNC wins just like there is for the New England Patriots because of Spygate. Cheaters are cheaters. Come to think of it, the Patriots and the Gumps are eerily similar.
They got what? Eight five stars this year? No problem. They just gonna cull the herd and reload.
Get your husband to pour you a glass of chardonnay and light you a candle. Good grief.
Wow! You nailed that. I am just butthurt and jealous. We are all just butthurt and jealous.
Still rather live in Louisiana with culture, food, Mardi Gras, riverboats, and gambling then live in Bama where you have only one thing.
I am going back to my board. You guys are no fun.
Who let this guy out. Les/Scoot, control your fanbase.
Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.
Hell, at least purp is funny *occasionally*. Ban this clown before him.

Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
Telling myself it's not as hard as it seems - Led Zeppelin
Deer antler spray makes you do crazy shit....
So you're comparing one of the best run organizations in the NFL to Bama? I'll take that any day of the week.
You're too god d*** stupid to even insult someone properly.
What year was Pettaway? Saw that he's 20 and can't be more than a SO, crazy. As far as Williams goes if I'm his teammates I'm taking his ass out. Dude snitching on everyone, what a bich.
Williams snitching is not surprise here lol... saw that coming a mile away when I heard about the gun charge, he probably realized how much trouble he is in and crapped his pants
Also Pettway is a rs sophomore IIRC
Lolz at Williams though, fake ass gangsta
Carrying a gun for no reason, 10 bucks says he didn't even no how to shoot it let alone take it apart and clean it
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
They are all gone so good riddance. I mean why fvcking football players on scholly are rolling around campus jumping out of cars and strong arm robbing kids for backpacks is a fvcking joke. I always had a weapon on me in college. Had they pulled that on me in school, I promise one of them would have been stuck in the liver at least.
They are used to raping and pillaging on the field. Hell, they held ND down at midfield and raped them infront of millions of people. They got confused for a second. It could happen to anyone. Anyway, I'm glad they are back on the team. I'm sure they won't do it again.

Yes, just finished his second year, so was heading into his RS SO year. Now, he'll be kicking ass at West Alabama.
Did ND's players take up for that girl who killed herself after being raped by two ND players, then watched as the university summarily covered it up?
Damn, now it's 2 rapists and investigations done by multiple agencies are just ignored? The 'telephone game' will really bite you in the ass...
The "investigations" did not even interview the alleged perp until 15 days after the alleged rape occurred. ND officials said they waited because they didn't want to rush into anything. Ask any SVU investigator if they think waiting 15 days to interview the accused is appropriate.
In the rape case, charges were not pursued solely because the accused have a right to confront their accuser (which is clearly not possible in this case). No other assessment was made as to the legitimacy of the accusations.
The threats by the other player were too vague to be prosecuted (although anyone with common sense would realize the nature, subject, and seriousness of the threats). "Don't do anything you will regret". "Messing with ND football is a bad idea"… Imagine yourself as a 19 YO girl receiving these threats from someone that was fully capable of delivering “regret”.
So here is my assessment of the situation:
1. ND clearly failed in their duty to investigate this allegation in a timely manner. Waiting 15 days to interview the accused is so egregious that everyone involved in that decision should have been fired (to my knowledge no one was even reprimanded).
2. Legal proof has a much higher standard than common sense (thankfully). Charges not being brought in either case (assault and threats) does not equate to innocence. In the case of the threats I think any reasonable person would conclude that threats were made in an attempt to intimidate Lizzy.
3. If the accused rapist is really innocent then ND's failures actually did him a disservice.
This case no longer about the innocence or guilt of the accused (that will never be determined). ND fans should be universally outraged at how this was handled. ND fans that dismiss this as a false accusation by a "unstable" girl (depressed does not equal unstable) are just as guilty of presumption as are the people that assume the accused is guilty.
I'm outraged that Saban has yet to take action against these four thugs that beat two students unconscious. Indefinite suspension is just another way of saying we are doing nothing about it but we will look into it at a future date.
Nothing from the bammers? Damn I thought I would get a lot.... I'm disappointed in myself.
