So sad that so many think that a Rhode Scholarship is so honorable; here's the truth about it:

Cecil Rhodes was a fabulously wealthy Englishman who exploited the continent and peoples of Africa, and particularly the diamond reserves of South Africa. The name Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, is an indication of his influence in that part of the world. As a student at Oxford University, Rhodes was inspired by a fine arts professor called John Ruskin....The views of John Ruskin and his articulate promotion of them brought about a revolution in the thinking of the privileged undergraduates of Oxford and some at Cambridge, too. Rhodes copied Ruskin's inaugural lecture in longhand and kept it with him for the rest of his life. The creation of a world government centered on Britain became Rhodes's obsession and lay at the heart of almost everything he did. Rhodes is claimed to have been a member of an elite group known as the Committee of 300, aka the Olympians.... consisting of leading people in politics, commerce, banking, the media, the military etc, who are working toward the goal of total global power.(this group along with others are behind the Boer War...[S. Africa 1899-1902 tens of thousands of men, women, and children were killed]... in 1902 Rhodes died and bequeathed his funds to the cause. In his will, Rhodes also created a system of subsidized scholarships which continue to this day. This was, in part, a front to hide the secret society. Selected overseas student are brought to Oxford University to be taught the British view of life and to be sold the idea of a world government. It is remarkable how many 'Rhodes Scholars', as they are called, go on to become leaders of counties or heads of intelligence agencies, education, and other subject areas important to the Elite, or 'advisors' to those leaders.)

They must have been informed by an activist JUDGE somewhere about the requirements of the "Give The Brother A Break Program". On the Other hand, Pat Hayden was never heard from again except broadcasting an occassional game. Maybe it'll work out.

Of course the Bush Brothers (Jeb and his moronic brother) will take full credit for this kid's success. It just proves to them that FCAT and no child left behind really did work.

Yea right!!!!!!!!!!

What a quality young man, who deserves all that is headed his way. He should be the role model for a program that somehow gets some kids that like the word trouble.

Sad to see how anyone on this blog can make this into a negative story. This is a fantastic accomplishment, not only to win the scholarship, but to also excel at a Div 1 NCAA football program well enough to be consider a first day draft selection. Those who rue should be ashamed. Take the scholarship. Obviously Rolle is smart enough and talented enough to accomplish this. I'm sure trying to enter the NFL in two years won't be a problem.

Although the list of FSU football players that are worthy of admiration is a mile long, I will just ask you if you've ever heard of Warrick Dunn. If you have then you need to rethink that statement. If you haven't then you're a moron who isn't worthy of a response.

One other thing about this article and the fact that FSU lost the game to BC without the receivers - the real "vexing" problem is that there have been no charges and the police STILL haven't finished their investigation. The longer the thing drags out with no action the more likely it looks like nobody will be charged with anything.

Congrats young man. Regardless of who you root for (I am a die hard Canes fan) I am glad that young man can serve as role model.

By "brake" do you mean "stop"? Or, by "brake" do you mean "break"? Crap, we at least knew the difference at FAMU!

I believe that you meant "take a break". Your last two posts say volumes for the caliber of graduates from UF.
