Rumors and gossip? Where do you get that? As my nickname states, I'm a student at UPike, and what I have said is my personal experience of the sports thugs going to school there... Anyone there could tell you the same thing I said. All I've said is they are violent and very disrespectful, which is the TRUTH.
First of all, UPike used to be a perfectly good school until they started letting all these douche bag football players in. Secondly, why should I have to transfer schools because of said football players? So, I (who is there to actually get an education) should switch schools because UPike doesn't give a shit that thugs are walking around (who are just there to play football, fight, and likely NOT graduate)? Don't think so.
And you shouldn't be so sure of the safety of the school when these guys are keeping guns in their dorms and walking around with them (FACT: read a newspaper or ask the UPike police). By all means, don't take my word for it; this is Topix, but I have stated no rumors... Just my personal experience as a student and facts about the school.
I completely understand what you're saying about opportunities and second chances, but you think it is okay for the school to be giving a second chance to someone who has committed an armed robbery in his home state, served time, and had been out of school for 3 years ALL before coming here? I think he had already had all of his chances, and that is not the type of person a school needs to be giving a second chance to. You must not have realized that UPike LITERALLY recruits prisoners. Any normal person should have a problem with this because as of RIGHT NOW, this school is not safe, and it is not fair to all of the people who are there for the right reasons. I mean, come on... this is college, not high school. They need to be kicked out or better yet, not admitted in the first place, especially if they are felons! All of the normal people who are there to get an education shouldn't suffer or have to even consider switching schools just because the school is too worried about sports and doesn't have a problem with armed thugs walking around. I really don't see how anyone wouldn't agree with that... Unless, of course, you are a sports player. Hm.
how can we find out how many convicted felons are playing sports or receiving scholarships, we can get this to the media

I go upike and lso work at upike. There has been fights and there has been guns because one they be stupid nd post pics. On instragram of their guns. I been there for 3 years it got out of hand. I know whats goes on at that school. I just say yeah they deserve a second chance but if they come there screw up their chances. When they get a full ride when i have to pay the school 1000 dollars not including the loans. It comes down to those guys had a choice to come there to behave and do better not to fight. Over weed being stolen. The school going get worse half of the school has chlamydia because things got bad. What they need to do is lay down the law for once. To anyone want say nothing going on at school there is, but maybe it a wake up call from God telling everyone change their ways but it not only the football teams it the whole campus need to realize it.

If you are a junior in college you had better get off the internet and practice your writing skills. You need some serious help.

God has nothing to do with the comment that I made. You just need to learn to write so that you can get a good job later after you graduate. Thank you for the prayers. We all need them. I will pray for you too.

If you check into it; God would not want you spreading gossip.
well now

God probably isn't doing cartwheels when he sees the rest of us reading all the gossip either.

The "hillbillies" probably paid part of your so called athlete student to attend. Pack your bags Granny Clampett and take Jethro or Ellie Mae with you. Closer to home is where you wasn't them, but I bet they're happy being away from your sorry narrow mind. What a sad and pathetic mind you have!

You should have been able to tell the kind of student you were talking to... Come on man, it's the 21st Century. ALL GOD's CHILDREN are given a chance to get a college degree now, even if they might on slightly different learning levels.

You people are ridiculous. Yeah, some bad eggs have been recruited to play at UPike. Guess what, that happens at every school with an athletic program. Go look into the backgrounds of some players at UK, Alabama, Va Tech, or North Dakota State. Sometimes kids are going to show up and do stupid things. Other times a life will be saved by getting someone away from a gang culture and into an educational atmosphere where they can escape from the cycle.

I don't attend UPike, but I live close enough to campus that I can't help but be effected by everything that happens there. Walking up Kentucky Ave. or Poplar St. is as safe as you can be anywhere in the world.

However, just read the newspaper and see what has happen at Upike. It is over with, so how about we all move on with our lifes. Instead, of fighting over all of this crap. I feel like this website is stupid to be on.
