Thank you for the article about Florida State quarterback Casey Weldon (Not Just Another Joe, Oct. 28). When you watch Weldon play, it's as though Joe Montana is on the field. We fans of Florida State wish him a bright future in professional football.
LEA ANN MYERS
Weldon has his wife do his homework, needs his parents to cosign a mortgage, cares little about the subject of his major and refers to his diploma as "just a piece of paper so I can get out of here." All that makes him sound like a spoiled brat.
I hope that his talent as a salesman will provide for his family, because he clearly doesn't have the toughness necessary for the NFL.
Weldon is taking 10 hours of classes a week and cannot find the time to do his homework, but he can find the time to play Risk, golf, tennis, etc. with his best friend, Brad Johnson.
Weldon is just one of many college athletes who don't realize what they are throwing away.

It seems appropriate that Weldon's major is political science. Maybe someday he will become a congressman and do what he does best—play golf and let someone else do his work for him.
A Missed Mascot
I find it hard to believe that you failed to include at least one photo of USC's Trojan Horse, Traveler IV. Please remedy that by running a picture of college football's most famous mascot.
