IMO, we should just say "aww shucks" and tussle his hair.
Probably the best thing for him would to be at Penn State. Shame he might not get the chance. But actions have consequences.
If you understood what I meant then you wouldn't have compared a felony to a traffic citation.
If winning was easy even losers would do it.
you said "knowingly committing a crime"....I wasn't trying to compare a traffic citation to a felony...more pointing out that "knowingly committing a crime" can be used in many many situations and probably wasn't the point you wanted to make. "Knowingly committing a felony" would have been a better choice of words. Nit-picking and it's probably annoying....I realize that now, sorry.
G U I L T Y until proven innocent. Kick him off the team. Where have I heard that one before. (Maybe also appropriate on Good Friday) Let the courts decide the level of the crime then, let the school and staff decide on the path this one takes. In college, I found out that passing a false ID was a federal crime too (after being falsely accused). In my day, alot of kids did it...hardly looked at everyone with them as felons. I don't ever remember hearing of anyone getting caught being convicted of a felon. Not saying what was done doesn't sound pretty dumb but, I'll keep my opinions out of it.
I got busted for using a fake ID at Sharky's back in 1999. This is the first I'm hearing about it being a federal crime or a felony. I lost my drivers license for 90 days and had to go to an alcohol class. Local judge and nothing on my record.

Back in mah day, mah daddy woulda jes given me an asswhuppin.
Now kids have to wear signs on Facebook and stuff. smh.
I'd lean towards revoking the scholly and wishing him well. But I'm sure it will be tough as heck for BO'B to sit down with a remorseful kid and his parents and yank it. Obviously that'll be easier if there is jail time.
Well, I can tell you back in 1988, after being accused, I was placed in a lineup and during the time, I was threatened by the state police that it was a federal crime. The only thing I was guilty of was having a red Camaro on a college campus. The kid finally caught had a red TransAm and was from a neighboring college. (Also, never convicted of a felony.) Crazy thing was that it was a picture ID that was taken and the kid sort of looked like me. One of those "can't be happening to me" feelings. Well sir, all I can say is that you could have been a felon!
Good thing you had a cousin named Vinny and the other car had positraction.
God damn buick skylark.
I don't know Zayd's case and am not in a position to judge. All I'll say is with all the dumb shit I did as a kid, the only reason I have never been charged or faced time is because I'm lucky. A drunk driver hits someone and that person is considered scum. Well what about those of us who drove drunk and were lucky enough not to get pulled over or worse yet hit somebody. I consider myself lucky. Again I don't know Zayd's case and I'm not arguing whether he should stay on the team, but with the hell we've been through in the last 18 months, I think we should be patient and wait for due process to see what he actually did.

So close to a Pontiac Temptest....metallic mint green
That isn't luck, it's skill.
I think we have to wait for all the details to come out before making judgement. With that said - There is a big difference in my mind if he was out with his crew and one of handed him some fake twenties and he went to clean them versus if he was actually printing them. If he was printing them - good riddance.....
Oh - I did steal some some Star Wars figures from a store when I was like 9... But there is a big difference between the dumb shit kids do (steal a candy bar, toy, change) from printing counterfeit bills and running a cleaning operation.....
He ain't heavy - He's my brother!
Wow, times have changed my man.
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
To all those saying Issah should have his scholly revoked. How do you feel about Joe? Do you think he participated in a cover up and has been treated fairly? Do you feel there was a rush to judgement?
Now, let's assume Issah is guilty. One stupid mistake by a kid and take away his opportunity? Huh? How many of you are Eagles fans who gave Mike Vick a second chance?
IMHO, using counterfeit money as an 18 year old is a stupid stupid thing. But its not like he was dealing drugs, armed robbery, or killed someone. It may well be peer pressure played a huge part in this. It may be Issah is a bad kid who doesn't deserve to be on the team. I don't know. That's why I'm going to let the legal system punish him and let BOB (who has a hell of a lot more info than I have) assess the situation and trust him to make the right decision for PSU and Issah.
But I am going to reserve judgement on the kid until due process is served. Sound familiar?
Really? What happens now?
First thing, Joe was never charged with anything. Secondly ,if anyone is taking away his opportunity ,all he has to do is look in the mirror.
The kid was talking about it on facebook. Straight from him, he is guilty.
I feel like he should have been fired.
He was never charged with anything. That doesn't mean you should keep your job though.
I thought Vick did his time and had the right to make money through his profession, but I didn't want my team to ever sign him and still think he's a Grade A nut job who is f*cked in the brain.
And this kid openly ADMITTED TO COMMITTING A FELONY. BRAGGING ABOUT IT.
This isn't he got caught smoking weed in the back of his car, or got drunk and pissed on a cop car. This is a felony involving counterfeit currency. Take off you grab assing blue and white glasses. I'm not saying anything definite one way or another until more movement happens, but this is a BFD.
I understand Joe was never charged with anything. I guess I should have asked if you believe Curley, Spanier, and Schultz are guilty before hearing all the evidence?
I'm just simply stating we don't have enough info to condemn this kid. Heck, he may not be found guilty for all we know. We should wait and see the outcome before judging, IMHO.
Correct me if i am wrong didn't Dan Connor have a investigation with the Feds involved when he did vulgar prank calls to coach Sara. I know that at the end of the day I will be ok with whatever bob decides, he has not done wrong by us yet.
Exactly...the DQ's all spun up need to calm down IMO. See what happens and realize they have zero say at all in the matter. If the coach tosses him, so be it and that is on the kid. If BOB/school gives him a second chance, I hope he validates them in a few years. Those running around with the gas throwing it on the fire and yelling there is a fire are pure genius.
