Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.

Gig'em Aggies!! BTCO'77HOO t.u.!!
i have given johnny a little grief here. but i wish to be serious for a rare moment and say this. it is Biblical that, "of whom much is given much is expected." it is true that Texas A&M has an "exceptional and ideal honor code". but johnny is just a 20 or 21 year old kid. just because he is the greatest, most awe inspiring athlete of last years' college football season, we should not expect him to be a perfect person. he is just a kid!
i have a 21 year old son. to me he is truely gifted and special. like his dad his gifts are not those of an elite athlete. he makes many of the same poor decisions i did at his age. he will be a great man someday. i shudder to think what mischief he would get into if he had the opportunity johnny has been given because of his athletic gifts.
is johnny living it up, yes! is johnny taking advantage of his special gifts, obviously! we should allow him this fun. we should have fun with it too. he is special and he may well wind up to be just like Coach Stallings and make every Aggie proud every day! we don't know yet.
johnny football is still the fastest, slipperiest "white boy"........oops, i meant to say "person who in our post racial society it is not necessary to mention the color of", i have ever seen!
Gig 'Em Aggies!

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

Boise State over Washington Huskies in a late second squeaker
TCU gets a homer call in Texas Stadium and gives Jacob and Franco some minor heartburn, but somehow Les pulls another one out of his rear end with a defensive score
Johnny Football comes in after halftime and all is forgiven
Texas beats New Mexico but Mack refuses to run up the score and cover the spread, but gives the same standard response after the game about what a fine opponent they were and they played hard, but the Horns have lots to work on
Is there a point spread? as I have a gut feeling you are pulling a Franco .
