...he'd best be served getting that in writing. I can just hear it, "I promise, Coach, I'll come back if you just let me play in this one game. You can trust me, I have never done anything objectionable before. Well, except sell awards and gifts for cash. But I did it for my family; they needed the money." Yeah, not buying it (pun intended).
BTW...I am digging your login name. Kolesar in one of my all-time favorites. I was at the 1988 game at OSU when he saved a win with his kick return and long TD catch. What a day!
