Too bad Johny Cockran is no longer with us, the famous football hero defender. "If the charges fit, you must convict."

Well, things must be improving in Florida. At least the Semiholes suspended him.

I think this is terrible, everyone in that program should be ashamed of themselves for making him go home. Who cares if he did it, its FSU. Maybe all the students should get an extra week off of school. They dont need anything else like classes distracting these standup young men.

Well, he just improved his chances of going to the Ravens or Raiders....

Penn State's going to HAMMER them anyways. Not that I'm excusing or condoning the bigger issue here, which is alleged sexual assault.

If he's guilty then throw the book at him. But I hope if some girl ever accuses me of rape you people aren't on my jury.

Bzzz. Wrong. I thought the same thing a couple weeks ago but with all the upsets occurring the past week I've had a change-of-heart. Not sure about the validity of this but my buddy said he thought only one favorite has covered the spread this bowl season. This could still turn out to be a good game what-with FSU being on a nice little hot-streak at the end of the season. Plus, the Bowden v Paterno match-up is classic.

"I hope if some girl ever accuses me of rape you people aren't on my jury."

No, we'll be posting comments online about how you should fry before you're even tried. Just kidding. Let's be clear here; the charge is sexual assault which could mean he grabbed her ass in the elevator, for all we know.
