I met Merrill when he played at UVA...


the guy did everything Groh asked of him, playing FB, LB, DE. He had talent but was not NFL-level. He seemed like a nice guy at the time but have not seen him since then. Not sure what happened to him and his ethics that he decided to run a pyramid scheme and rip off friends, mentors, and others that trusted him. A tragic story of avarice. In fact, he committed 4 of the 7 deadly sins:
Wealth Without Work
Pleasure Without Conscience
Knowledge Without Character
Commerce (Business) Without Morality (Ethics)

  Agree. Why is Vaughn's sentence so much less? -- Oregon Hoo 12/07/2017 4:22PM
