    It's been dissected enough. Emmitt's an ass. The university should expunge his records and ask for its money back.

      I was going to go with a public shaming.

      This article showed a continuation of the backlash he received after the frat incident:

      How a certain group of fans treated him, similar to the group that sent him threats for leaving early.

      I was tempted to dislike some of these comments. He is an adult he can do whatever he deems best. None of that should generate these overly emotional responses.

      What might happen if he say went to work for Georgia as their running back coach, or for Auburn or Bama?

        Chief, I don't think a single one of the emotional replies you are alluding to is actually serious. We all appreciate who he is and what he was to UF football. We're all in a sports bar. After 15 pages, it's the equivalent of five or eight beers. Some of us are blowing smoke for the sake of laughs.

          Don't forget Hernandez..... he was a stone-cold killer TE.

            Emmitt was on the local news in Pensacola when I watched him say he wished he'd gone to Ala I think it was back in the late 90's or early 2000's . Don't remember why he was on tv now but he's from Pensacola so they talk to him whenever they have a chance! In Pensacola only ABC is a Florida station NBC,CBS and Fox are all stations out of Mobile Al so he might have been doing an interview with one of those channel's. It's been some years sence I watched this so just remember him saying he wished he'd gone to Ala instead of UF! But it's very interesting that he also said Auburn . Emmitt will always be a GREAT football player from H/S all the way thru his NFL career but I still stand by the fact that he hasn't been a good ambassador for UF over the years

            Correct. This topic is another example of the revisionist history approach we have in this country today. Everything in the past is suddenly unfair or tainted simply because it didn't turn out the way some wanted it to.

            Want a statue, win a Heisman.

            Want to change the Heisman process, start by attacking the clowns at BSPN that have polluted the entire Heisman process.

            Want to change history, write your own version and then try to get others to buy into it. I am sure many of our schools will embrace it
