    Wasn't he a "2-bit gansta" first and a millionaire later? As I understand it, that's part of what got him in trouble.

    Don't know that he was a full-on "2-bit gangsta" first, but there were definitely signs of him hanging out with the wrong crowd and being involved in gang related activities in high school, before he committed to UF. Our coaches knew when they offered him. And I really think to some extent, he got away from that while he was at UF, though he still had more than 1 incident at UF.

    We may need to start testing certain questionable players like Ahern in the future.
    He has a classic criminal mind judging by his lack of remorse and accountability.
    It's one thing to be tough....quite another to be carrying & discharging loaded weapons.

    So, is he going to be the same to Meyer as Lawrence Phillips was to Tom Osborne? You know, the player with whom a lot of your success depended on and tried to help but didn't cut your losses when you should have?

    I can't believe you guys are foolish enough to talk smack about this guy. Don't you see what happens to those that don't comply? Good god, he's a full blown gang banger......

    Always capitalize God.
    You don't want to see what happens to those who don't comply.

    It's tough for those of us in the non-gangsta world to comprehend, but I doubt he's lost much sleep over what he has lost, much less what he did to throw it all away.

    Idiot. He could have everything he wanted and more. Instead he is sitting in a jail cell staring at the wall.

    Idiot sounds about right. That ego, macho, 'gonna make them pay' mentality is just freaking ridiculous. Full on Gangsta. The thing is he had a way out of the hood and he was such a moron that the vortex pulling him in and his own idiotic pride stuck him in the slammer. I guess he has a good story to tell everyone in lock-up. So much football talent too-=really a special player. Idiot.

    All of it is such a shame, and a tragedy. I truly wonder if anyone, or any thing could have changed his course, or was he too far gone? Was it always there and just manifest itself once the $$$$ and fame was infused? Or is someone like this just "different" than most, and born crazy as F*#$?

    I used to work in the prison system with people like AHern. For many, if not most, being a thug is more important than anything else. One even bragged that he made more in a month than I made in a year. He didn't have enough sense to realize that I got to go home every night and spend what little money I made, while he languished in a prison. It was more important to him to impress the rest of the thugs locked up like him.

    I worked in the prison system too. The amazing thing is that 99 percent of the inmates there are innocent (just like Hernandez).

    One inmate told me near the end of his sentence that he was sad to be leaving, that he had made more friends there in the prison than he had ever had in his life. I guess you could say he had recidivist written all over him.

    According to most, they are in prison due to bad luck. It was certainly not their fault.
