Anthony DiLoreto to Utah State

New, 2 comments

Being tall really does get you a chance, as stated earlier: Anthony DiLoreto, famous nationwide for participating in a botched bank robbery (and stealing a tank of gas for said robbery), has a scholarship from the Utah State University Aggies and Coach Stew Morrill.

If he's good, we're going to get those gauzy-toned ESPN specials with gentle piano/ organ music, a downplay of what the player did, and how he's on the right track.

I suppose everyone should get a second chance... but I do feel like there are some very hypocritical moralists out there who will say DiLoreto "paid his debt" or "deserves a second chance" or "will be better because he's living with Mormons" just because he plays for Utah State. Armed robbery is much worse than:

  1. affairs
  2. cheating on one's SAT's
  3. and possibly, worse than stealing laptops, like AJ Price and Marcus Williams of U Conn.

Just so you know where I stand.
