    Default montell arrested again .

    Former Iowa wrestler Montell Marion arrested again | TheGazette
    I wonder if the Hawkeye nation will rally around him again ?
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    No more eligibility, its safe to kick him to the curb now

    I knew someone was going to bring this up. I haven't taken any sides with Marion in the past, but at a certain point he needs to grow the **** up. I trusted peoples judgement in the past, which may have been a mistake. I do think the fact that he is no longer eligible will cause many fans to "kick him to the curb", but who could blame them at this point? I don't think hawkeyenation will rally and we may have already rallied around this kid one too many times.

    I think Terry and Tom kept him on the straight and narrow after his suspension and now that he's on his own he has taken a step back in his personal development.

    I haven't looked up the timeline, but I'm pretty sure he spent some involuntary personal time with police at least twice after his suspension was lifted. I doubt he was ever on the straight and narrow, more likely straddling the line just enough to stay barely eligible based on what he got caught doing.

    Eligibility or not, it amazes me how quick people are to disregard a young, troubled person and kick him to the curb. Forget wrestling for a minute. This is a guy who can help society for the next 60 years or be a drain on it. You all apparently want him to be a drain on it. Forget about the excitement that some of his wins brought Hawkeye fans. Just give up on a 22 or 23 year old, his usefullness in life is obviously over.

    It's hard for people to help you if you don't want to help yourself. I'm 25 and have no interest in hearing the age excuse.

    Age is no excuse. Neither is his behavior. I'm just saying that you have to continue to try and help. Giving up on him means he will give up on himself. Then society has to pay for him for the next 60 years. As a tax payer, I would rather he gets the help he needs now, so it saves me money later.
