OMG, I don't even know how to react. For those that don't know he was a starting DE and heck of a playmaker for the Miami Hurricanes.

I'm stunned. He was shot and killed at an apartment complex. No more details than that.

I actually thought he had a bright NFL future.

That horrible. I feel so bad for his family. Do you guys remember over the summer two of the UM players noticed a suspecious car outside of their dorm, and when they went out to investigate, they got shot at? One of the UM guys was shot in the butt. Luckily, the other UM guy shot back.

They said, they don't feel safe in coral gables. People(savages) think they have money and try to rob them.

Ill wait to speculate but I wish these kids would relish their oppurtunity and take advantage of it instead of staying caught up in BS.....Like I said I dont wanna speculate but I doubt this was random...either way its a shame.

Not getting at you Mike, but how exactly do you change the culture when a guy who people are describing as a good kid is gunned down in his apartment complex? When Meriweather is dancing around in the street with a gun while Willie Cooper is getting shot in the butt, okay, something needs to be done, but this seems a lot different.

MIAMI - University of Miami defensive lineman Bryan Pata was shot and killed Tuesday night at his apartment complex, the latest shock to a Hurricanes team touched by tragedy and turmoil - including four deaths in the last decade, a separate gun incident earlier this season and an ugly on-field brawl just last month.

:shakeno: ..has NOTHING to do with what school he came from...alot of kids who come to ANY college continue their "hoodlum" ways....Now I dont know if he was just attacked outta the blue..or he was caught up in something...

..Saying it has anything to do with his school was a VERY 16 year old remark, remember Im an Ohio State fan...Our program has had as many problems as most, I was speaking about college athletes as a whole.

Not sure how much of a playmaker he was 13 tackles and 2 sacks this season, but regardless very sad. Football accomplishments should mean nothing anyways at this point.

Sure didnt sound like you were, sounded like you were implying that since its UM it couldnt have been random, it had to be something bad.

Two of those kids were killed in car crashes. A lot of people(TV media) seem to leave that part out. Ofcourse, they do it unwittingly, its not like they would use tragedy to give their opinion more pop.

Has anyone heard any more on this? Typical media... put it all over the place when it happens to get ratings, but NOTHING on it since. Did they find the guy(s) that did this? What was the motivation?

This is just so sad, would really like to know WHY.
