How about suspending him indefinitely? Did Railey test 190 proof and play WWF with a telephone pole......I forget? The standard applied should be across the board and thus make it easier to set the example. You want to help young men learn from their mistakes? Then by all means don't use the "do what say.....not what I do" method. We are not talking about a young freshman struggling in the adjustment to college life so far from home. We are talking about an adult, and along with the responsibility of being an adult comes the understanding that you no longer are afforded the mulligans that came with being a young person learning the ropes.
Also, unless I missed something, did someone put a gun to his head and said........"you better drink and drive or else"? He chose to get drunk.....he chose to drive drunk, right? He and everyone in that community should be very thankful that the only things that were damaged from his choice are those which CAN be replaced. And IMO on this end the consequences for what he chose to do should be a little saltier than focus groups and community service. It's not like there are not any more qualified people to fill this position on ISU's end. And it is not like there are't any more schools looking for qualified people on his end.
Here is a nice link to keep track of arrests. Hopefully we fall off this list soon.
Give the man a 2nd chance.
than drunk driving, especially by young drivers. Damn near had a kid hit me even after i honked and was half way in ditch. Saw that the dumba$$ still had phone in his hand on steering wheel fiddling with it as we passed. They need to have the same fines and suspensions with phone and texting as owi.
I would think that anyone who feels like they seriously embarassed their brand new employer would have thoughts of getting fired or resigning running through their mind.
Of course, the more truly embarassed and ashamed he feels, and if he would truly consider resigning will go a long way to showing that he doesn't deserve to be fired.
Unless you want to argue that this ISN'T embarassing to ISU, or that the timing of being just hired doesn't aggravate the situation . . .
