Seems to be a trend with her posts today, see the "No Verdict in the Herring Trial Friday" thread.

But don't worry, she'll be glad to "break it down" for you.

yep racism is still very much alive. i commend Coach Odom and the university for their stance. The racism comes from the readers who post. Terrible negative comments. He is going to suffer for not holding up his bargain. Negative black comments or whatever is not necessary and shows how far we have not gone. Good luck young man hope you buckle down and do what you have todo.

Maybe he can join the Harlem Globetrotters(lol); or go play ball overseas. But as for college; he can hang it up. He has had TWO chances; and has messed both of them up. I had NO sympahty for him. And by the way; I am a black man.

Lmaooo, I agree with you DEB... I am trying to figure this character out... he gives himself the name: "The Spectator".

I wonder if he's one who looks on and watches << untrue because he always running his mouth, or is he a woman's pump. Lmaooo, then again... he could simply be "a retard".

Back to the subject now...Boo hoo hoo! Cry me a river! It's about time a college coach took a stand and told a "prima donna" athlete "no!" Maybe more coaches will follow Dave Odom's lead and get rid of academically challenged athletes.
Just another "Flea Market Educator"... who cares about the proper Grammar, Spelling, or English... as long as the point get across.

Cuse Fan here

Jones didn't really transfer from Syracuse---more like he was kicked off the team...Boeheim's last ditch attempt to straighten him out was public ridicule.

The kid had the commitment of an 8 year going to cub scout meetings. He blew off practices, didn't attend class, had suspicious injuries and thought he should be a starter--a waste of god given talent...hopefully he'll mature before it is too late.

While I am usually on your side as far as punctuation and such not being a big deal in posts, I think the point here is that the point DiD not get across....and it is in all caps which doesnt help to read it either.

If any more transfers at USC fail out then maybe Odom could go retire sooner. It doesn't matter who they have on the team Dave Odom's SEC record says it all(under 50% won/lost record in 6 years). USC should have went after Coach Marshall at Winthrop.
