Have a heart people. Don't debate over death. Herman Mitchell was a good kid and an amaizing player. I met him and I played him, and you will never find a kid with as much heart in the game as he did. And it's not OU that everyone should worry about, it's the players at westfield that had to find out that there friend died while they were on the way to a scrimmage.

Always sad to hear when life is taken that young. I didn't read anywhere that he was "Gangbangin". I also think that is a very interesting point of view coming from someone calling themself "Chopped N Screwed". But I do agree... Vick is a moron.

i knew Herm also, and we are praying for his family, but Herm is still the winner here. He is in Heavan looking down on "stupid" people, not calling you out Julia and Chopped N Screwed, but as far as the IQ goes Screwed you really should check your fact about people's IQ's. All I can say about people like you 2. You all really do need Jesus, and Herm has him right by his side.

Chopped N Screwed - Usually I don't comment but after I read your thread I had to say something. Herman Mitchell was no thug - thugs don't have 4.0 GPA's and I doubt very seriously that OU would recruit a thug!
If you are an African American it may be a good idea to channel your behavior to something positive and maybe mentor some of the so called 'thugs'. I'm also not sure what you m ean by ignorant life. The only ignorance I see is those who speak on something they really have know nothing about.

Don't get me wrong I understand what you are saying and there are instances that this could and would occur. But, in this case you are wrong. Herman was a good kid and the Westfield family has suffered a tremendous loss.

Herman Christopher Mitchell - RIP and we love you!

I hate these hip hop pieces of garbage.(Same goes for Micheal Vick....'Oh I's funna bet me 50 grand on some damn dogs,even though I be's makin 20 mil a year cause I's still be a thug fo life,n-gga!').
I wish they all would shoot each other already so we as Blacks could start over with the 7 percent that have an IQ.

I am very sorry about Herman, but OU is famous for recruiting anything that walks. why do you think 20% of those recruits actually graduate from that piece"o"crap school.
