18 year old kids, huh?

it is about growing young men/women into mature adults. Part of being grown is accountability.

The student athlete is provided a scholarship for their work on the court/field and in the classroom. A true fan supports them with attendance at the event vs advocating on a message board which most will never read. I guess you can continue to support this"kid" by rooting for UCLA if they play UTEP.

The boy made a mistake. How would you feel if an entire city condemned you for mistakes you made when you were 18? He is already paying a heavy price for his mistake. He is going to miss out on a year of basketball. I pray that his grandmother does not pass before he plays again.

We don't need to bash a kid for making a mistake. All of us made mistakes at that age.

I'm surprise at how unforgiving all of you are with a kid this age.

I've never bashed him. In fact, I wish him well along with his grandmother. Rules are set and must be followed so it is right for him to sit a year.

03-hissyfit You state you won't pay for subpar sports yet you generalized UTEP fans as only caring about the sport and not the kids. Who do you think is watching win or lose? Your admission of actions indicate you also dont care about the students athletes unless they are winning. (I dont expect you to see the hypocrisy)

Incorrect. I care about the fact that they will eventually graduate and live productive lives. I'm just not going to waste a night out with the family to see them lose.

No one wished bad on him.

You said everyone won.... AND NOW, you are spinning the debate. As you usually do, when people call you out- on how full of shet your argument is.

Fitbud, you make me worry about my kids in school.

Everyone did win becaue UTEP got their scholarship back and Hamilton will not be allowed to play. Isn't that what they wanted anyway?

When people call me out?

Just because they disagree with my opinion doesn't mean I got called out or I'm wrong. It only means that they disagree.

I don't know where your kids go to school but I assure you, I am a damn good teacher.

Don't make the mistake of assuming that anything I post here reflexs on my ability to teach.

This, for me, is a form of entertainment.

I'm simply playing devil's advacate and having a good time. Nothing I say should be taken personally.
