Wow DN beats yahoo to a story but then its an aggie not a ute.
Utes may have caught a break if this kid gets suspended for the first game.
Either way it will be a great opener.
Coaches, athletic directors, fans, players--Where in the world is the character
that sports is supposed to develop? Where is the good sportsmanship? Athletics
is a cesspool of corruption.
Forget the arrest, that mullet rocks brother!
Hey Jake, as a fellow M.E. I painfully know how difficult your
undergrad class work is. Plus doing Sports and doing Sports well too !!. Dude,
let this be a learning experience. Take your licks and move on. My long view of
this is in 10-15 years your Engineering department co-workers will be calling
you "boss". There is a big world out there outside of Utah. and
Engineers change the world in little steps. Don't believe me? Are you
reading this on an IPAD? IPADs didn't exist 5 years ago. English Majors
didn't design these things ENGINEERS DID !!!
Normally I would say kick him off the team. However, perhaps there should be a
little leniency for youtful folly at spring break.
All I have to say is...Nice mullet, glorious. Stay out of jail next time dude.
Overcome with foolishness while with young women.....a recipie for problems when
As a fellow Aggie, I had my share of fire water. We're there underage
students there, sure. We learn from the biggest lumps on our heads. So tighten
up on the loose ends, and enjoy your time. Great school, great valley. Remember
a moments bad judgement, can create a lifetime of pain.
WAggieloveWould that be were and not we're? Learn to catch
that. And this kid did something stupid and nees to pay the price.
C'mon people... Like this haas NEVER happened before? A 21 yr old guy buys
a cold case for a group of friends and a couple of these drinks are consumed by
some 19-20 year old girls??? Why isn't it the girls' responsiblity to
NOT have any? Doubtful they were held down and forced to drink.This
wouldn't EVER even be reported in the St. George Greensheet if this kid
wasn't a Football player. I have a lot more respect for his being on the
honor roll.... and in that subject... not exactly sociology or
communications.... than anything else in this article.The double
standard continues... Go ahead kids, and go and party on Spring Break like
thousands/millions(?) of others... Just don't do it in Utah,
and don't be on a Football team anywhere
At least he stepped up and took full resposibility for it. It doesn't
excuse what he did though.Spring Break and college kids usually
equal booze.Too bad the 2 girls don't have more accountability
in this situation.SLC Guy was right, had he not been a football
player, we would not be reading about this, and he may have not even been
arrested.I doubt they were the only 2 underage kids drinking down in
Strang08I've never heard of the word nees.
For a WAC Academic AA, in engineering no less, remind me never to step on a
platform this pencil sharpner designs. Seems the standards at USU are a bit
Seems that someone forgot to tell him that while benefiting from a state funded
scholarship he represents his school and the state of Utah, both on and off the
I know this is a little off topic, but I still don't understand why the
drinking age is 21 and not 18. At 18 you can join the military and die for your
country. You can vote, sign a contract, be prosecuted as an adult, go off to
college and be relatively considered "of age" except you can't buy
a beer. Either raise the age to 21 for these other activities, or lower the
drinking age to 18. I'm old enough (43) to remember when the age was 18.
And BTW, I don't drink.
I didn't read the article, but getting arrested by the fashion police
isn't a real crime, although maybe it should be.
Obama10: "...I still don't understand why the drinking age is 21 and
not 18."Because a higher minimum legal drinking age is effective
in preventing alcohol-related deaths and injuries among youth (think traffic
accidents). When the legal drinking age has been lowered, injury and death rates
have increased, and when the drinking age is increased, death and injury rates
@blueNtheface I understand that is the argument. So my point is, if we are
"graduating adulthood" maybe we should "graduate" other aspects
also. In the military, an 18 year old has access to automatic weapons and
machinery worth millions of dollars. Should they have this access? Were they
truly "adult" enough to be informed about enlisting, or worse yet,
drafted? An 18 year old can vote. Are they really old enough to make an informed
vote? Are they truly capable of signing a contract, rental agreement, or apply
for a credit card and know the consequences? If they are not responsible enough
to drink, then maybe we should say they are not responsible enough for these
other "adult" responsibilities. Obviously the LDS church feels
they're responsible enough to send them around the world to be ambassadors
for the church? I just think it is hypocritical. And I still would like to see
studies where the lower drinking age causes an increase in alcohol-related
injuries because no state has had a drinking age of 18 since the late '80s
when the Federal government tied highway funds to states to strong-arm them into
raising the age limit.
Hey Jake, Sandhollow reservoir, the scene of your legal mishap, was
recently built and came on-line in about 2000. Washington county water agency
wants to run a pipeline from Powell to Sandhollow to supply water to the
residents of St. George and its surburbs. On paper that project is suppose to be
done in 2020. Civil Engineers designed and oversaw constuction of the dam.
Mechanical ENGINEERS will design the Hydroelectric plants along the pipeline.
When you get to Europe eventually, keep your eye peeled for the old Roman
Aqueducts although 2,000 years old some reaches of the old canals still work.
Focus on that Engineering Degree and don't look back from this
How about needs Aggielove. Does that work for you? This kid was an idiot and
should no doubt be punished. Even you Aggielove can agree with that.
@stang08 would that be needs not nees? try and catch that in the future.
Read the above comment Sneaky Jimmy. You'll see that I did. Unlike those
aggies who misspell everything and never catch it.
