    Bluestater,

    I wish they would have beat my ass, the recovery would not have taken as long and I could have got at least one of them down with me to share the punishment.

    btw- Barry was a frat boy at ASU too. I never held it against him though.
    I just knew BroMojo would call me out on this.
    A) Sure I can admit to having access to "accessories" that enhance performance that others may not have been privy to.

    B) My academic record was no where near as prized as THE national record.

    Trusty - we had 2 wrestlers in our frat. We were one of the biggest supporters for the team on campus. The wrestlers, like others were welcome, if fact they attracted some feminine company to the house - kinda share and share alike. We probably would have had more join except for the fact that the team rented their own house off campus. Our heavy lived in our house for 2 years before moving into the wrestling house for his final 2 years.

    I have no issue with study groups or files nor do I have problem with files of past papers although this can be abused. The line is crossed with test files when the profs do not change the tests from year to year. This is cheating. How can you call it anything else?

    "We had 4 file cabinets in the basement that contained notes and tests from evey prof and every course. You'd be amazed at how many profs replicate their tests term to term without changing a comma. We knew which ones did and those that didn't."

    If you are keeping a list of which profs are using the exact same test with no changes and passing those tests out to your members then it is cheating. It is not using them as study guides to figuire out certain profs test styles or how they grade. Spin it any which way and it still stinks.

    Turning a blind eye to this problem is to say that it is ok. This is not a problem that is isolated to frats. It has infected our whole education system and our workplaces. It waters down who we are.

    Bluestater, you are sacrificing a lot to do the right thing and give your kids the best education possible. If your child was home sick for a week and had to make up tests upon returning to school how would you feel if you found out that they used another students test answers that had already taken the test? What would be the consequences if they were caught? From your prior posts I know that you are great parent and person so I know what your answers are to these questions.

    RYOU, I am sorry that this appears to be a personal attack. It is not. My apoligies on my first post as it does indeed seem harsh You are many years past that time in your life. I have my own dark clouds in my distant past as we all do. We learn from our past mistakes and move on.

    My son is entering his senior year in High school. I have watched him struggle night after night and year after year with his studies. He effort is as intense as his effort on the mat. He has great difficulity retaining information that comes through reading. Read it to him and his retention level goes way up. He has a gift with things mechanical so he has a life plan that will work for him and that he has chosen. It just riles me when people that are blessed with the ability to do their own work chose to take the easy way out. They cheat themselves out of the growth experience that comes from doing it on their own.

    I am a proud brother in Sigma Phi Epsilon, Florida Beta Chapter. Going to college, I thought frts were for toobags. I learned differently when I actually hung out with Frat guys. Even though I told them I wasn' goingto rush as freshman, they treated me like everyone else that WAS rushing and even maintained that friendship after rush. I joined as a sophomore because I wanted to, the brothers actually talked to me to make sure I knew I didn't have to join to keep being their friends.

    Yes, there are D-Bag frats and frat guys, but it's a generalization, and as Mr. George Carlin so eloquently say "All generalizations are bad." If you yourself are not a d-bag, you are unlikely to join a frat full of d-bags. I am proud of the friendships I made in my frat, and I maintain many to this day.

    So the baseball players that take steroids and aren't breaking records are fine and dandy?
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    Brother Mojo - please reread the commentary throughout, you may want to amend your "Cheaters" string.

    "Sure I can admit to having access to "accessories"" I'll bet even you can admit to having access to certain "accessories".
