So they gang up and beat the crap out of somebody and all they get is a conditional discharge and a 1 game suspension versus an FCS team? Wow.

I hope he gets millions and goes after any and all future income, but with street thugs like that I doubt he will get a cut of any future crack or heroin dealing proceeds. It's tough to collect from somebody in Eddyville State Pen. To only suspend these felonious thugs for an FCS game warrants costing the school administrators millions of $$.

It would seem his chances in a Bowling Green courthouse might be somewhat limited since the locals have pretty much condoned this pattern for years.

On the other hand this pattern again reaffirms what they are to all who might check into whats happening in Bowling Green. Which would be anyone curious about wku naturally. This could drag on for quite a while...

A new focus on and publicity for the toppers!

The wku legacy continues! :salute: :salute:

Its impressive really.. Their "student athletes" activities just shine casting a unique reflection on the school. I dont know of anyplace that challenges them. really..? Anyone have another school to throw into the hopper on this issue?

Most schools eventually do turn things around due to shame or embarrassment vibes coming from the alumni...but not the toppers!! Is it possible for the Commonwealth of Kentucky to evict the school? A mere censure clearly wouldnt be enough.... :oops:

Can they be deported?..well no..and going whole hog kicking out Bowling Green and, as a result, wku, from the state would be hard too since there is a senator from there..What to do??

The best thing the OVC(note caps used here ..first time this year) has done in decades is kick them out so long ago..

Actually, WKU left the OVC in 1982, moving to the Sun Belt Conference for basketball, and football 1-AA independent through 1999. The OVC let them back in for football only 1999-2000, then informed the Toppers they would have to play all sports in the conference going forward. Western declined, and moved football to Gateway, playing 1-AA thru 2006, then again independent for the 2007-08 year to reclassify to Div1 football before joining Sun Belt for football the next year. They settled in with Conference USA in all sports starting with 2014. So they really weren't kicked out of the OVC, just told they had to play all sports or none in 2006. Regardless, I have never been a fan of their program, which stems from our old rivalry in football and basketball in the 60's and 70's, though I had a healthy respect for them in those days. Not so much these days though, due to their recent missteps in athletics overall. Too bad, they used to be worthy opponents.

the vaunted toppers lose at home to fcs Maine. Their enrollment has gone way down losing that athletic fee that was made to help keep them afloat. Now their gate receipts will be nill and will lose chair seats next year. :clap: :clap:
