Predictably, there has been a terrific overreaction in Columbus and beyond to the body slam of an on-field rusher who turned out to be an Evans Scholar.
In a comical-if-it-weren't-so-overblown story from the Columbus Dispatch, Allison Manning reports on Anthony Wunder's court appearance and the news that he is no longer in the Evans Scholar program as a result of a few minutes of stupidity that will now haunt him from life. He forgot that Ohio State football is a religion and any crime pertaining to it carries special circumstances, even though the body slam was more than enough punishment!
According to his attorney...
Collins said that Wunder was told yesterday by the Evans Scholars program that Wunder has lost his scholarship with the program.
Collins also said that Wunder is no longer living in the Evans Scholars house.
Collins, however, said that Wunder remains enrolled at Ohio State. He is a fourth-year student in a five-year engineering program, Collins said.
The nonprofit Evans Scholars Foundation gives academic awards to college students who have served as golf caddies.
