    That's a great question. Maybe it was held to his body somewhere with a rubber band.

    Man, this brings back memories. That's a pretty sweet shirt he has on by the way.

    Duke wins again! Our 'sex issue' is a decent looking girl. UNC's? Wellllll, at least his mommy loves him!!! But on a more serious note, dry the boy out and get him some help so he can laugh with us later at this incident.

    Campus police went out on a sexual assault call...collared the suspect on 7 charges...and are still looking into the sexual assault complaint? Hopefully the university is not juking the stats on sexual assaults here, like they've been accused of in the past, sweeping the sexual crimes under the rug to protect their image.

    Seems like he may need a mental evaulation or just help.

    Me thinks there may have been something other than a little marihuana in that pipe.

    Hopefully this son of Georgia scions hasn't wrecked hope. The high & mighty have children and send them to university for an education. Making peace with drugs caused this.
