In times like these I always go back to a line from one of my favorite playwrights, Thornton Wilder, and one of my favorite plays, "Our Town".
"Wherever you come near the human race," the line goes, "there's layers and layers of nonsense."
Remember what everyone said when Pete Carroll fled to the NFL, and Reggie Bush did, and the likes of Kelvin Sampson and Bruce Pearl took it on the lam to the pros after wrecking their respective college programs?
You know, these guys never have to pay for what they did. They wind up making millions in the pros and never have to suffer any consequences for their actions.
Well, guess what?
The NFL just told Terrelle Pryor he could, in fact, enter the supplemental draft. But, if drafted, he would be suspended for five games for his transgressions at Ohio State. And now the same people who complained that these college miscreants who escape to the pros never have to pay for their malfeasance are questioning the propriety of the NFL making them pay for their malfeasance.
Makes perfect sense to me. Not.
