The teenagers were arrested on a felony
criminal mischief charge, plus assault

and criminal trespassing.

This morning they appeared in a
Manhattan courtroom ready to plead
guilty to the single misdemeanor of
"reckless endangerment."

The negotiated settlement calls for
each of the teenagers to perform 200
hours of community service, pay a total
of nearly four thousand dollars to
cover the damage- -about 13-hundred
each... and send hand-written letters
of apology to management at the
Doubletree Hotel, to the 17th Police

State last played a football game and
35 since Florida played.

There's too much time between the

January 8th is too late to play it.

Still despite the serious lag
time. Ohio State remains a solid 7

This Afternoon Well, here's proof of those words
of advice.

Bobby Petrino was named the new
head football of the Atlanta Falcons
today.

He leaves the University of
Louisville to take this new job.

This means that Petrino will now
be coaching Michael Vick - the older
brother of Marcus Vick - the one who
stomped on Petrino's star player in the
2005 Gator Bowl.

Mast raced alongside Hamilton for
two decades and respected his hard

to the sport.

Unlike so many of the cookie

today - Hamilton was from an era when
you had your earn your way to the top

your marketability.
