My alma mater California University of PA made national news thanks to five thug football players pummeling a defenseless man. Nobody can ever question my dedication to my alma mater. I’ve bequeathed money sundry times since being prostrate to the higher mind, getting my paper and going free in 1988.
I’ve attended all three Atlanta area alumni gatherings. I announced basketball, football, and baseball games on the campus radio and/or TV stations all four years I attended. I’ve driven three times numerous hours one-way to see and support my beloved Vulcans play basketball when they’ve contested in the Southeast. I’ve viewed countless football games on streaming video in recent years.
Interim president, Geraldine Jones made the appropriate verdict in forfeiting our game and essentially terminating any expectation of our going to the Division II playoffs. Not only will the hooligans have to answer to the law and the University, but now they also have to face their teammates. I’d love to be a fly on the wall when that happens.
I hope the benefit that emerges is that Division I schools learn how to properly deal with human sewage. As ashamed as I am, I am proud of how my alma mater has dealt with the crisis. I cannot fathom the humiliation each and every honorable graduate of Florida State must feel.
