Smart Athletes

Looks like some Tennessee football players have really used their brains-
http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=4647094
Despite being highly regarded freshman on a team with a great tradition and at least a fair shot at the NFL, not to mention a solid education from a good state university, they decide to try to rob a couple people at (pellet)gunpoint, and then make their getaway in a prius. What a bunch of morons, chances are they'll be immediately kicked off the team and for good reason.

I disagree with all of you. The fact that they made their getaway in a Prius means that they are Part of the Solution and thus, responsible and intelligent members of society who are concerned about their impact on the environment and making a better world for tomorrow. In fact, it absolves them of ALL their sins.
