I hate to say it but I think that almost all of these types of signature drives involve a lot of this kind of activity. And the groups that hire these "professional" outfits to collect the signatures know it and don't care.

What a shame. If I were the coach, I would kick these players off the team for good!

The bright spot here is that all of these student-athletes gained valuable experince for their next employer which will in all probability be ACORN or one of its offshoots.

Kick the players off the team? Knowing Craig Bohl, they probably BECAME starters after the fraud was discovered.

What does this have to do with a football team? This has to do with some players that were hired for the summer. Since they were football players it made the news. If they werent football players nothing would have made the press.

Maybe North Dakota will now not be stuck with their own Legacy amendment. Here In Minnesota Taxpayers have been stuck with this lousy legacy amendment. ( pork barrell amendment)

verdepato displays a stunning lack of understanding of what the amendment actually says. Being intellectually lazy seems to be the norm for folks like him (her), but in the real world, where thinking people research what is happening they might be surprised. No individual's taxes would be raised by this amendment, none. The taxes raised would have come solely from the oil companies. Not terribly hard to understand, unless of course you don't think for yourself. The loss of $88 million per year to combat the deleterious effects of all the drilling in ND will no doubt cause more damage as those companies run roughshod over the environment.

North Dakota State is becoming like Penn State in that the football coach and the AD are running the show. No one has heard a word from the President of NDSU.
