Yes, I saw he got a suspension (3 years I believe).  That's actually more than I expected.

I didn't say they WOULD strip the gold, but that IMO they SHOULD strip the gold for his conduct at the Olympics.  I didn't really expect that they would.  My opinion hasn't changed.  He was an embarrassment to the U.S. for all the world to see.

American Olympians should conduct themselves with a high standard of conduct when they are participating in the olympics, especially when they are on foreign soil.  That's what it boils down to for me.
Agreed, they certainly should conduct themselves honorably; but that doesn't have anything to do with the actual competition, winning, losing, or cheating... you strip medals for cheating, not for being an asshole.

You can count him if you want.  Matters not to me.

However, he embarrassed the U.S. IMO and should be stripped of his gold medal.  Representing the U.S. should be a privilege and U.S. athletes should represent themselves in such a manner as to make the U.S. proud.  He, and the other 3, failed miserably.

And he's earned himself a ban for the stupidity; but you don't strip somebody of medals they already won before the incident unless they're caught using performance-enhancing substances... he didn't get a competitive advantage by being a dumbass, especially AFTER he already won the medal.

Heard Mike and Mike breaking down the college teams represented winning medals in the Rio games.

Stanford led the way with 25, followed by UCLA and USC.

Florida and UGA lead the way for the SEC.

Interesting stat, UCONN had 6 athletes win a gold medal in the Rio games. All of them on the Women's Basketball team. LOL

When it comes to bragging rights within the country, which college earned the most medals? According to the NCAA website, athletes from 78 different universities won medals, led by Stanford with 25.

* One note about Stanford, Ledecky hasn't actually swam for Stanford yet, she's just a signee; these totals are only supposed to count current and former athletes who have competed at their schools. Not sure if there are any similar mistakes with other athletes/universities.

I wouldn't claim Ryan Lochte if I were you.

Why not? Guy's a juvenile dipPosted Image away from the pool, but he's still the 2nd most decorated swimmer in U.S. history, and it turns out much of his story was true.

In the U.S. if you held somebody at gunpoint and demanded payment for damages before they'd let you leave, even if the damages were legitimate, you'd be charged with armed robbery, possibly extortion, and probably kidnapping (you can't forcibly prevent somebody from leaving with a firearm) ... and you'd be convicted 100% of the time, too.

Just ask O.J.; much of the merchandise being sold was in fact his and had been stolen, but you cannot demand compensation at the end of a gun... he was convicted of armed robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, and kidnapping, as well as 9 other charges. Got 9 to 33 years for it and is still in prison to this day.
