I don't blame Aaron Hernadez being a murdering sack of crap on the system. Lots of people have it worse than him and don't kill people.

I was going to threadjack the "Early Enrolees" topic, but I decided to start a new one. Have any of you listened to the "Gladiator" Podcast about Aaron Hernandez? It is an extremely well done podcast by the Boston Globe Spotlight people. One of the contentions is that Aaron Hernandez should have not...

We should have just kept him under contract when he left the first time. So whenever we lost a coach he could just automatically take over. I can’t believe Hartwell is such a moron.

When we played in the 1993 Las Vegas bowl the university chartered several busses from Logan to LV.
