Does anyone find it somewhat telling about the sad state of track and field that the redshirt linebacker gets most of the attention in the article? Here we have the second-fastest 200m guy in history, a guy who won 4 ncaa titles in one year...but the redshirt linebacker gets all the attention. All he did was ram the car with his body while Carter jumped on the hood presumably causing much more damage. Granted this guy Odom has had another arrest, but still. I guess we're fortunate that the guy who smashed the window didn't get even more attention than Carter in this article.
I don't get it. Carter is quite possibly the greatest athlete LSU has ever had. He's an obvious gold medal contender in Beijing. What must a track guy accomplish to get a headline in a local newspaper over a redshirt football player? If this same incident had happened to Michael Johnson in 1997 with some other local big-school redshirt linebacker, would the double-gold medallist and WR-holder's involvement still be an after-thought in the local newspaper?
