Well, yes, as long as our board, unlike yours, is open, you are totally welcome to come here and express your opinion, even if it disagrees with ours, but we are somehow supposed to give your opinion more weight because you are "pretty stout in" it?
Really? That's a new one on me.
Are you like Mrs. Slocombe on "Are You Being Served", who famously said, "I am unanimous in this"?
Or perhaps like Demi Moore's greenhorn lawyer character in "A Few Good Men," you "STRENOUSLY object"?

JMO, but I think Les Miles is seriously pushing Urban Meyer for that title. I never saw a thread on 247 about it, but I think Les letting the team "vote" on punishment for a player is pathetic. He's had serious conduct issues on his team for the past 3 years now, and 2 of the years he's handled it wrong.

Next punishment for a LSU player to cross a line, as voted on by the rest of the team: He has to go to the nudie bar with the other guys, and spend several hours there with no cash to "make it rain all up in heah!"
They're harsh, man.
Returning to the scene of the crime!
Ya know, guys, what gets me most about this whole deal is the oft-touted academic superiority of Vandy (often by their fans who couldn't get in to Vandy if they had a Cat dozer to help), as contrasted with the abject stupidity of the guys accused, IF they did it.
Yes, the crime is awful, but additional charges of gump-i-ness should be tacked on for enhancement value. These bright, private school scholar-athletes attending a cradle of learning in the "Athens of the South," Nashville, allegedly thought it would be OK to gang or serial rape a passed-out and helpless female in a building with cameras in the halls and lobby, in front of and/or around other witnesses, and then...wait for it...someone thinks video'ing the thing for posterity would be a good idea? Brilliant!
I'm sorry, but this is every bit as dumb as our pellet-gun armed robbers wearing UT football gear, and our morons didn't actually hurt anyone.
C'mon, Vandy fans. Be intellectually consistent here, and apply the same standard to yourself you always have to us.
Like I said, we can agree to disagree. I just don't think I'll change my opinion on this that's all I'm saying.
Also just so everyone knows Vandenburg and Batey got 350k, banks got 250k and jaborian (tip) got 50k.
I dont always beat Tennessee, but when I do I beat them badly.
Ugh, I knew when this thread got revived it would drag these guys back in.
"When we step on that football field, everyone flips a switch. And it's on..." - Butch Jones
So with the charges the same...why the different bail? The two with reduced are from out of state. One has already bonded out...or at least that's what has been said today.
By tip do you mean cooperating with the state?
No his name is Jaborian McKenzie but everyone called him Tip McKenzie. Some of the reports I've seen have called him that. Just to clarify all confusion.
Don't know for a 100% fact why they are lower but Tip and Banks have said from the beginning (adamantly I might add) that they never touched the girl, so that could be related to it. The judge doing the bails might have thought they were telling the truth in their interviews with the police. But I don't know for sure. Maybe he is helping the police. 50k is a hell of a lot lower than 350k, so it must be something significant.

I appreciate the info, Breezy.
I'm just curious about how all this will play out.
