that's a good way to get yourself beat senseless if you run into the wrong person...who wouldn't be "just kidding," i'll bet.

Usually we just call people like that at my school "stoned".

UConn spokeswoman Karen Grava issued a statement to The Daily Campus, the student newspaper.

"The Division of Athletes has a policy of not commenting on student athletes," she said.

Just what ARE they supposed to comment on then?

hah that joke gets funnier every time.

i like to walk into banks with capguns and rob the place then say "just kidding"

also yelling fire in a crowded movie theater is hilarious

maybe he shouldn't have been under the influence of fake electric space panties

REAL electric space panties wouldn't have prompted him to commit such a scandalous act

Is it ok then to yell "MOVIE!" in a crowded firehouse?

/mindless rant

I think he is just kidding. Let's offer him a CEO position at a major accounting firm, a lifetime ambassadorship at Disney, a major publishing deal with Wurlizer, a sealed container of liquid LSD...a...

if we outlaw running around with a bloody knife wearing a mask, only outlaws will run around with bloody knives wearing masks.

Someone make a UConn tag.

Rashad?? Allow me to start the whole civil rights thing again. It's his civil right to do whatever the fark he feels like doing. Though I COULD be a racist. Yeah, right.

Oooo, I know it's so un-PC to say this sort of thing in this day and age, but I got a good belly laugh out of the story and actually felt kinda mellow after seeing that some good old fashioned college hijinks took place on, gasp, a college campus. finish this glass of wine and think about some of the goodies we pulled 23 years ago in school. There was the guy who stole license plates from the campus police cars...while the cars were occupied. And then there was the guy who had two six foot tall plants in his dorm room. And since he was the Savior of the Comp-E department the only thing the campus police ever did was to call him once and ask him to please move them back just a bit from the windows. And then there was...

I am going back to school; I will take these ideas under consideration.

The 6-foot-4 freshman guard/forward from Lakeland, Fla., is accused of hiding in the woods near the Hilltop dormitories and scaring pedestrians Sept. 16.

Move along, nothing to see here...

Coach to pedestrians: "walk it off people, he's got a game on Saturday."

pshhaww! As a former UConn student I can say that a quadrillion more criminal acts go on there every night.

Cripe my freshman year it's hard for me to remember a weekend where someone didn't throw a couch or tv or pumpkin or parking sign with concrete base still attached out the window of our 5th floor dorm room.

ahhh booze the cause of....and solution to all of like's problems....

Um, no.

I did the exact same thing on Halloween nights years ago. I even slid the (plastic) knife along people's arms, leaving (fake) blood streaks. I never got beat up or arrested. There shouldn't have been any punishment.
2002-09-29 09:55:33 PM  
I guess he was just trying on his OJ costume for Halloween.

Its funny because UCONN hoops players are usually such fine young upstanding citizens.

Well, at least we beat Duke.

Mr. Andersen was overheard saying "Do you like scary movies?"
2002-09-29 10:56:09 PM  
Oooo!!! I wanna do that!!!
2002-09-29 11:00:56 PM  
Never has a man been more in need of a beating.
2002-09-29 11:08:33 PM  
Troutstomper- Had he jumped the wrong person... He might have received such a beating. Neither the Karate Club nor the Easily-Scared-And-Like-To-Hit-Things-With-Shovels Club had just let out.

I can hear the theme music from Halloween in my head now. Actually, I hear it pretty often, and it's getting harder to ignore the voices.

Forte said Anderson would apologize to the people he scared and take off the mask.

He's still wearing it ?
2002-09-30 01:11:12 AM  
thats hillarious

"Anderson has been charged with threatening and breach of peace in connection with what some students called pranks on campus last week."
...with what some students called pranks? holy gravy. i still can't beleive people are still that square.

Its so sad that our society has regressed into this civilization of wimps. For gods sake it was a joke, if he had indeed gotten his ass kicked for it then he had it comming, but there is nothing illegal here.
