I understood McCall's was a first offense scenario, unlike Bo Ellis' where he apologized to the school and community and might have sat out a game.  Also unlike the UW kid from Wisconsin (can't remember his name)... he sat for 2 weeks of pre-conference games then was back in line-up (under BoBo) then he transferred to Iowa.  Damn, what was his name?

Sam Okey?

Winner...winner...chicken dinner!

Cassville's finest..."the last best WI recruit since Kohler's (?) Joe Wolf"...yeah, right.

he did win Big Ten Frosh of the Year....

Since I go to school in Platteville, I have friends/know people from Cassville, and Sam Okey is the big joke in that town, actually all over Grant County.  In fact most people hate him, find him a failure(which he was), and really could care less on what he is doing in his life.  When you hear the story, it is a sad story when you hear it from people from that town, because that was their "child"(lets face it, not much comes out of Cassville)

Sam not only ruined his life but aided in ruining anothers....

Upon arrival to University of Iowa, he was roommates with their starting tightend at the time--Chris Knipper.  Chris, too, reveived all freshman honors and had a huge upside.  Well Okey moves in and brings a suitcase full of his 'goodies'.  Campus police a called to the room to investigate an 'odor'.  Knipper freaks out knowing he's in trouble so instead of facing the police he jumps out of a third story window shattering his ankle.

He really never recovered from the injury.  He was drafted late by Cinci but never made it out of training camp.

Sad story...thanks Cassville!!

Yep.. that sounds like something a student at a Big Ten school would do... Here's your sign!

Wow, that does seem awfully severe.  The kid put himself in a bit situation, but expelling him is a drastic response.  What would Fresno State do?

I think ND is proud they aren't like Fresno State.
