I think most of them go over to coach's house if they want to hang out and party.

Those are the most assinine comments I have ever read. I hope that this drivel is simply trying to get you closer to being the 1,000,000 poster. Why is it that posters on this site are always trying to blame someone else? It's Topeka! No it's KC! No it's athletes! SERIOUSLY?????

When you put a large number of people in a small area with a lot of dark alleys and lots of alcohol people are going to fight. Even your precious kids. This fight was at Quintons and the last time I checked it was a "middle class" place to be.

Quit being so seriously stupid and judgemental. You have absolutely no idea what goes on with Lawrence night life except what little you read in the paper and make up in your own little minds!

Think this was a different fight from the one the ball players were involved in. Different places.

“I got a dislocated finger ..from throwing a punch don’t let the news paper gas yall up aite,” Taylor wrote.

Minutes earlier, around midnight, he wrote: “real (racial slur)s do real things .. point plankn.”

His earlier posts indicate there may have been escalating tension.

“keep my name out ya’ mouth for you get smacked in it,” he wrote at 11:12 a.m. Tuesday, and 30 minutes later he posted, “never get outta character .. I’m always a G about it.”

About 4 p.m., Taylor posted, “(racial slur)s be muggin me know I’m mugging back.”

How about you take your G azz back to hood. You're playing for a top notch University with a chance to really make something of yourself. Yet what you want to do is be hard and continue to prove yourself like you're slingin' rock. give it up kid, your future is way more valuable than this BS

You can take the Homie out of the hood but you will never get the hood out of the Homie.
