    "One NFL quarterback is missing some of this team's offseason work, choosing to take college classes back at his school in pursuit of a degree. He's passing on a chance to spend time with his teammates and, more important, learn a new offense to instead focus on fulfilling a promise to his mother to get his diploma.

    The other is dealing with the release of Internet photos showing him as the life of the party, one putting him in a hot tub with a bevy of beauties, another showing him helping one of those women with a beer funnel, continuing to fuel his reputation as a Hollywood quarterback.

    So who's the quarterback doing the right thing this spring?

    It's not who you think."

    that's when i stopped reading. the amount of flack young is getting for going back to school baffles me.

    I was just listening to 100.3 out of Knoxville this morning discuss high school graduation rates. For any writer to go after someone getting his degree is.......well, it just misses the point of life.

    Is there any proof that he is the one that provided them with alcohol? Any proof that he purchased it and gave it to them? Any proof he knew their ages? Is there any legit proof that they are under 21?

    I realize it's illegal and a bad move since he could get in trouble for it if they are under 21.


    I just don't think it's a big deal, and if he is never charged for any of it, then I REALLY don't think it's an issue at all and basically people should mind their own business.

    I worry about Young sometimes, but there are reasons that I'm glad that he's our QB and the face of our team. This is a very personal thing to him, and I'm glad his education is important to him. It's early in the offseason, and he'll be done before anything major starts. Yes, he has a lot of work to do on the field, but I have no doubts in his commitment to the team and to improving himself in that way. I seriously doubt that anyone on here really thinks that he doesn't care about getting better. I'm glad that he holds himself to a promise that he made to his mother, I'm glad that he values education. He's a leader, and in his role, character counts. He'll improve on the field in time.

    Dumbest. Article. Ever. Period.

    I can't answer the second question, I really don't know. But the first question is just looking at it from the wrong perspective. It makes no difference in the eyes of the law if he knew their ages. If he provided minors with alcohol, then he is legally culpable. Knowing their age is irrelevant.

    Yes the articles state the girls were under 21. The party was at his house, I would have to think he provided some sort of alcohol. More than likely nothing will come of this legally so it's really not a big deal. But having underage drinkers at your house is a very dangerous situation. I would think he's smart enough to learn from this and it will be a big deal if it happens again.

    As you can see there is alcohol present, beer pong, and a beer bong is also shown. The girl is the same as the one in my previous link. Her bio says 20 yrs. Better hope the Sheriff of Maricopa county does not see this. I bet he would love to dress Matt in pink.

    Matt should be dressed in pink regardless. If i was in his situation and had that cutie on her knees, the last thing i would shove in her mouth would be a bong.
