Man, if schools were to erase the memories to all of the eventual felons from their history, I would think there would be several voids.

Lock it up in the same storage shed as JoePa's statue and throw away the key.

Just because you are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law doesn't mean you get the same courtesy in a court of public opinion. I think it's fine what the Patriots and Gators are doing.

UF's recruiting strategy, "He will either end up in prison or the hall of fame"... Or is that just Urban's strategy?

I however would find it amusing if he was cleared of all charges after "The Real Killer" is caught.

no chance in hell of that happening but I would laugh a little bit as the Gators and Pats backtracked

You would think that a supposed institution of enlightenment would at least honor one of the fundamental freedoms of this country: you are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

I don't think they have to backtrack too far, honestly. If I was randomly accused of rape, my casual acquaintances would distance themselves and no one would think twice about it. The courts would presume me innocent, and that's all the protections the constitution provides. If I was found innocent, they would probably still distance themselves. Oh well.

No he isn't (though that's not by any action on the Cowboys' part; he retired)

Am I mistaken?  He's still under contract, and the Cowboys still maintain his rights, should he decide to Favre?

I would find it amusing from the standpoint of watching the sports mediot brigade that played the "what did they know and when did they know it" card with Florida and New England doing an about face to try to pin "giving up on an innocent man too quickly" as well.

True, but the court of public opinion is a whole different matter. Any institution of enlightenment needs good PR to thrive.

The way he ran the fun n gun at UF was entertaining as hell to watch. He wasn't expected to have much of a NFL career.

Ahh...thanks for reminding me of this photo. It never gets old. Taking that shiatbag Paterno's statue down Saddam-style was the perfect cap to his shameful legacy.

GAHHHH! please get this right:

You are entitled to the PRESUMPTION of innoncence IN A COURT OF LAW until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.  You are ACTUALLY innocent or guilty fromt he moment the crime did or did not take place.  A verdict of guilty doesn;t make an innocent man guilty any more than a not guilty one makes a guilty man innocent.

I don't quite believe we have to worry about that.

UF can do as they please. And I don't think I'm going out too far on a limb by having serious doubts about Hernandez breathing the sweet air of freedom any time soon. In all likelihood, he'll be convicted of the Odin Loyd murder, and in connection with the other double-murder in Boston.

Assuming colleges are institutions of enlightenment and not corporations looking to protect their brand (particularly an SEC school like UF, where football and the identity of the university are practically one and the same)

There's a big Pulitzer Prize story for the reporter that uncovers the skeletons in Florida's closet with respect to Hernandez and his days playing there.

I give it another month, two at the most, before the story breaks and all hell breaks loose for everybody involved in helping him evade justice for other crimes before he would go on to kill.

I can't help but think that he got away with stuff while in college and the belief that he was untouchable led him to his later crimes.

I think of Chris Leak and how he practiced with the Chicago Bears before eventually being signed and released by half of the teams in the Canadian Football League.
