    I didn't think I was making a dramatic implication against the fan base. All I was doing was answering the question that Russ asked in the first post in the negative.

    Is it a good or bad thing that since he's off the team and graduated most people don't care anymore? Maybe, maybe not. But he's gone, he's graduated, and people really don't care anymore.

    I wasn't saying it was some dramatic statement, but it seemed like a pretty clear implication against the Hawkeye fans.

    Not really what it was meant as.

    Maybe more glib than I should have been, but based on your first post it seems as though we agree with one another in reference to the situation.

    It is also a topic most people are afraid to talk about. That's one of the sad things about 24 hour news stations. They make people think they are anti-"something" if they think for themselves. Which results in people just doing what they've always done. So we get what we've always gotten. It's sad. People need help. But pointing out the obvious doesn't win elections.

    Agreed. It seems more and more that making points that sound good but aren't actually true is the preferred political strategy.

Just give up on a 22 or 23 year old, his usefullness in life is obviously over.
    Im kind of with you on this one...I mean if everyone I know had given up on me the first couple of times I had scrapes with the law, I'm not sure I'd be where I am today. There comes a time in every man's life where you can only guide him so long. You hope you've instilled something in him that at some point triggers and he "get's it" before its too late. I also think that from what I have seen, his dad makes way too many excuses for him. His dad is the one guy that really ought to be the lynch pin for this kid. I put no other individuals in charge of the actions of who my three boys are then myself. That is a direct reflection on myself and I have the responsibility, no matter what their age, to give them a "come to jesus" when I see fit. I'm concerned for Montell and I for one hope he continues to have people around him that stay involved with this young man until he figures it out.

    I've spent a night in jail, let's just say I haven't kicked in anymore grocery store windows since that evening in Mankato. Lesson learned.

    The REALLY sad part is that everytime I see this thread header I just think its VAIS "bumping it". Sadly, thats not the case.
