After he got hurt this year, George was supposed to get a lot more reps. I don't recall seeing him that much and see he had 4 tackles on the year. Thoughts on his role and which LB position next year?
It depends. Lest year, when Matt got hurt, the staff elected to start Morton outside and move Klein to middle. I don't know what that says about George. Perhaps he just wasn't up to speed just yet which would be understandable at the position. In the end my guess is he will be MT's backup. We have heard good things about Bennett and Morgan who I presume are outside linebackers so I would bet that if needed, one of them along with Morton will be on the outside.
The "suspended indefinately" tag is not a good sign for the young man. My guess is he will have to make a pretty convincing case to be allowed back, but he was not dismissed. Maybe CPR will give the young man a chance to get his degree and provide some depth, if he is able to meet some pretty stiff standards.aI would bet that the young man`s days of being a significant contributor are over.
You realize we have no idea what he blew, right? For all we know he blew a .09 and it'll get pled down to reckless driving or less. What makes you assume he was swerving all over the road with a .3 or something?
OWIs don't get plead down just because the BAC is only slightly over the limit. Every county attorney, including Story County's, has this policy. Only when the prosecutor realizes there is a real problem with the state's case will a reduction occaisionaly (and extremely rarely) be offered, or where the OWI charge is in addition to a more serious charge arising out of the same incident and the defendant agrees to plead to the more serious charge.
Basically, if you're charged with a OWI you're gonna plead guilty, or it will go to trial and you'll be found guilty by a jury, or your attorney will be able to get the state's evidence tossed out. 98% or higher plead out to the OWI.
Only real significance of the level of the BAC above .08 is the availability of a deferred judgement.
I'll stand by "bad decision". Do you have any idea how many people drive over the limit in Ames (or any college town) every weekend? It happens all the time. And the amount of people injured/killed from that drunken driving is almost always zero...it's not like they are driving down the interstate at 80mph. Cops swarm Campustown, cops pick up drunk drivers, they get fines and jail time. It happens again and again.
I refuse to encourage penalties for what COULD have happened. You know, my window was a little fogged up the other morning and I couldn't see very well. I COULD have rear ended someone, but I didn't. Should I get a ticket for wreckless driving? Maybe I should go on down to the cop shop and confess? Sorry, people should get convicted of what they DID do, not what they COULD have done. The DUI laws in this state are plenty stiff...MT will be punished. But I don't believe that CPR should punish him like he got drunk and ran over a family of four. He'll get a game or two and that's it.
Wreckless? Would that be a malaprop or whatever that fancy-*** word is?
