      The date published doesn’t make it any less true.  The only thing laughable here is people’s  short term memories... And of course the predictability of your response to anything FSU.  I forget, did you even attend the school?

      Can anyone guess some of the players referred in this story, such as the DB who proudly wrote about how he and his friends beat the crap out of some “fag”.

      Relevancy?  Since this is such a big issue ( DEAD SPIN?) LOL to bring up at this time why don't we revisit the Hernandez case and how Tim Tebow and Meyer covered for him?  How about the recent Treon Harris case where only the complaint was withdrawn but not the Rape charge?Hey since we are dealing with the historical past why not revisit UF's Hell Yes We Cheat  years?You know when the NCAA issued the following statement about the University of Florida"Unfortunately, during the five-year period in which the violations occurred," continued Mr. Toner, "the football coaching staff operated unimpeded by any effort being exerted by the university's director of athletics or any other administrative authority at the university to assure control of the football program. Due to this fact, as well as the serious nature of many of the violations in this case, the Committee on Infractions and the Council considered this to be among the most serious infractions cases ever processed by the NCAA.”JMO but I would be careful throwing those stones from an all glass house.

      Runole, you respond like you know you're absolutely sure talking to a UF fan/alum.  Your asinine hair-triggered defense mechanism makes you look stupid here.  Any other FSU alum would find the article interesting for the same reasons I did.The article isn't an exclusive ripping of the culture of FSU's football team.  Its an extremely well-composed indictment on the modern college sports industrial complex.  FSU is simply the vessel here.  It talks about the failures of every part of the machine.  The athletes.  The grade school education system that ill-prepared them for a college experience.  The athletic department and their assignment of chaperons and the grey area created by their presence.  The school administration for their cover up of the issue and their willingness to compromise academic integrity for the sake of national sporting recognition and profit.The point of the entire article is that you can substitute any D1 program with FSU.The article is relevant because this is a problem that is will continue to be relevant until its fixed.  The article is relevant because FSU just happened to produce the record amount of drafted NFL players in a 3 year span, and this article is an intimate portrayal of the type of culture that produces a record number of NFL players.It's not just your lack of exposure to actual FSU campus culture that makes you unqualified to discuss this, its your lack of intellect and maturity, and your stalker-like obsession that render you incapable of discussing a thinkpiece like this without ramming your garnet and gold boner into every word you type.  Go stalk Joe on twitter and leave the think-piece to the thinkers.
