Rolle Has Arrived

At 8:57, Florida State's Myron Rolle made his first showing in Byrd Stadium. He ran over to the Florida State sideline amid cheers from Seminoles fans.

Chris Turner just got sacked again ...

How many times is ESPN going to mention this guy Rolle? He is not the second coming of Jesus Christ. He is a football player who rode the Obama election into a Rhodes Scholar appointment. Big deal. If this was any other year he would not be mentioned. ESPN has followed his movements like MSNBC would have followed Obama had he attended the game. A supposed police escort, which I doubt, arrival at the stadium, coverage of him dressing, coming out onto the field, and then playing. Big freakin deal. If it has been any other year and any other player there would not have been a mention of it.

I am watching this game instead of the OU/Texas Tech game. I thought it was quite touching that the crowd, even on the Terp side recognized the academic accomplishment of Myron Rolle. It is a big deal, contrary to what a previous poster thinks. I shall always think just a little better about the Terps in the crowd who also recognized the academic accomplishment of their opponents football safety. This young man if he follows through on his goal of becoming a doctor may give back to his country in ways we might coime to realize help many lives. perhaps he will find the cure for some illness some of us develop. But in the long run, he will contribute in a far greater way than if his goal was just to play pro football and enrich himself. I think the NCAA treated this whole situation with great distinction!

I agree with Jayhawk. With so many college football players getting into trouble, it's refreshing to see coverage of something positive. Perhaps some young kid might have been watching and viewed him as a role model. Now what would be so bad about that?

Regarding the incoherent Obama comment, I have to wonder if the first poster was somewhat racist?
