I’ve lost control of the lost control meme.

Seriously, things at FSU have gotten to the point where it’s beyond me to engage in mockery.

And I mean this sincerely – if Herbstreit was shaking his head/wagging his finger in Mark Richt’s direction, he’s got some ‘splaining to do now if he can’t bring himself to point that same finger in the direction of Tallahassee.

    i have even less faith in Jimbo facing any consequences from FSU than i do that Herbie will take time out of his busy manicure schedule to even notice.

      Herbie won’t say anything because Jimbo won’t take the verbal lashing quietly.

        Not dignifying Herbie with a response was where Richt won that battle. It was such an idiotic comment, it should have been ignored. My bet is Kirk called CMR and apologized.

        I wonder if Fisher’s publicly, lax handling of Jameis for the verbal episode and the theft issues contributed to the behavior issues at FSU. Our lax handling of criminals in our society are the reasons for the out of control behavior in the US, imo.

            You don’t understand the meaning of “lax”. It isn’t having them in prison that teaches them a lesson, it is having them in prison with no air conditioning, cable, color TV, internet access, basketball goals, weights to lift, conjugal visits, work details, etc. that would make them regret their behavior and not want to return. Make it hard time, not placing them in “timeout” like some suburban soccer mom.

            But that was a nice quote of stats that only prove the point.

            • Scandavia isn’t a hell scale of criminality because the prisons are too nice. Can’t find a thief in Saudis Arabia because they chop their hands off except of course the thieves with their hands chopped off. The idea that crime can be controlled by the state is a lie. Crime occurs or doesn’t occur without any regard to enforcement or punishment. Ask yourself: would you kill a man if you could get away with it? If you would you might decide you’re smart enough to try. If you wouldn’t murder someone just because you are a moral person it doesn’t matter what the state will or won’t do about it. Crime is about criminals not cops, judges and wardens. The latter think they have something to offer yet by the time they do their job it’s well too late.

            Dear God!, you are either ignorant, stupid or delusional. We are lax beyond description. We wait until a thug criminal commits their 5th crime, harms someone, attacks a cop, or kills someone before we make them do any jail time. Our first time offender laws encourage thugs to commit more crimes by letting them get off completely with the first crime. The second crime usually results in probation. The third is “time served”. It’s about the fourth conviction that a useless piece of shit criminal finally goes to jail for any length of time.

            We need to change the laws to; second violent offense conviction, immediate death penalty, third non violent offense, death penalty. It wouldn’t take long before the parasite thugs would get the message.

                Nope, the war on drugs is a total farce and failure. I think most drugs should be legal. I do think the criminals that break the laws on the books, especially the crimes that hurt people, should face swift, brutal punishment. I know most criminals don’t really think about the punishment when they commit crimes, I’d make sure they thought about it when they thought about committing their second crime. If a person is enough of a sociopath or crazy enough to not care about the punishment, I have no problem with killing that person and getting them out of society so decent people don’t have to concern themselves with them.

                We do incarcerate a lot of people in this country,but we lock them up for the wrong crimes. If you took the drug conviction prisoners out, we would not have an inordinate amount of prisoners. Thieves, robbers, rapists, murderers, violent assault perpetrators, etc should all be punished severely for their first offense, no more of the “he made a mistake” crap. Making a decision to commit a crime is not a “mistake”,it’s a conscious decision to somehow harm someone else. If a fairly stiff prison term in a non air conditioned, very uncomfortable prison did not cause them to give up crime, they probably aren’t going to learn and need to be eliminated from the living.

              These forgiving Pollyannas can justify any level of liberal bullshit from their Starbucks coffee shop perspective. If they think strong, harsh punishment cannot slow crime significantly, let me enforce it strongly in my jurisdiction and watch the druggies and thugs fill their areas as they run to their loving embraces. The odd thing is, let a violent crime happen to someone in their family an see how feel about our treatment of these punks. The cost to society of this softness goes way beyond the budgets for prisons and keeping death row inmates around for decades.

              • Yes mccallan the world IS a Dirty Harry movie. While you insult the supposed lack of judgment of those who disagree with you let me once again attack and challenge the intelligence of those who think that being harsher and harsher works. In the days when any felony carried with it a penalty for hanging, including pick pocketing, they would publically hang the condemned at Tyburn, because of course logic would tell you that such a show of force and resolve and toughness and manliness and all things that are not liberal would stamp out crime, right? You know where pick pocketing crimes were extremely high? At Tyburn while the hangings were taking place. You are wrong on your concept of human behavior. You think it can be controlled by force. Your stupid blind belief that your conclusion must be right blinds you from facts. You might think that I believe that if I give someone enough facts that they will see things my way. I don’t. Because you are stupid, rationality will not work. See the problem now? You think you can change results in people that you don’t understand. I’m not that stubborn. I know you can’t be convinced. If you don’t care about facts why do you think criminals care about punishment?

I could care about peolle who are incapable of dealing with reality. Save it for your children, they probably think you are smart. I simply see you as a naive fool, another who would prefer to see everything crash around them than to step up to the problem. The weight of those with heads in the sand is tiresome. Stick to football, you arent ready for anything weightier than that. Go play with the other flakes, and stay off my lawn.

There is a clear parallel that you’ll never see cause you’re dumb. Criminal don’t read the criminal code before they choose crime. They’re stupid and think they’ll get away with it. Stupid, just like you. If you think stupid can solve stupid then congrats you’ve reached a new level of stupid.

              Tell you what. Forget the idiots such as me on this board. Send your governor, state senator and state representative a signed letter telling them to raise your taxes to build more prisons.

    “On June 26, 2014, Cook was one of three FSU football players questioned in connection with a BB-gun battle that damaged cars and homes at an apartment complex in Tallahassee… Cook was charged with criminal mischief and given pretrial intervention in December, which he completed on June 16.

    And last July, Cook was named as an ‘associate’ in an aggravated assault case in which police were investigating whether two men brandished a firearm at a neighbor.”

    This same guy punches a woman SEVERAL times and is merely suspended from the program (ostensibly to be reinstated right before fall camp and held out of the first game against the Texas State Bobcats); but the freshman backup quarterback with no prior history with the law, who struck a woman – arguably in self defense – after she attacked him first is immediately expelled.

    I wonder if being a returning prolific running back starter on a team breaking in a new quarterback had anything to do with that decision hmm…..
