No one knew who he was before he became the Mountaineer. Now that people have been exposed to the guy, they have begun to have opinions

I've never hunted.

I don't see how killing a small bear for the sake of killing an animal is cool, funny, awesome or has ANYTHING to do with West Virginia University or the beauty of the state and the wild and wonderful life contained therein. 

I presume that it is legal, but that has nothing to do with being a representative of the WVU.

He is a mascot. I can't imagine any mascot from another school or pro sports team killing an animal and posting it on you tube or facebook without facing negative publiticty.

Well in one picture I saw it looked like the bear was dressed. There's a very good chance that it's meat has already been consumed and it's pelt used for something.

Assuming that it was just thrown away is asinine. Bear is delicious...

Re: Why do the Kimble threads keep getting removed?? 


Just like you responded to my post without knowing me?

As soon as the video was posted here...well before any press got wind of it...I spoke out against his actions


Not hunting
Not using WVU's rifle
Not using dogs
Not shooting a treed bear
Not shooting a small bear

But rather acting as though he had stepped foot on mars, cured cancer, stopped global warming and had sex with every Victoria's Secret model...all at the same time

I think he is an energetic Mountaineer...I don't like his push-ups but he can do more than me...I don't like the way he mugs for the camera...I think the corso commercial was the worst thing that could have happened to his career as the Mountaineer...but maybe not to his ego


I could very well be wrong to every other poster here...but I have grown tired of the mouth breathers who will not look at this as a complicated issue and not just a "he used a gun and good for him" type of thing...it is not for me

I think that the limelight has clouded his thinking to where he may be representing himself above representing the university...again...I could be wrong

removed from his position? dont you guys think thats a bit of an overreaction?

the only reason you even say that now is because it got some bad press. If it had been well received and people were syaing it was awesome then you wouldnt feel that way.

He's a college student, he has no PR firm to advise him, he's proud of HIMSELF and he's not shy about showing it. It's really sad that some people want to throw the guy under a bus just for a semi-poor judgement call that can be blamed more on lack of wisdom (due to age). He gets a pass in my book.

But I still think it's cool he went bear hunting with THE rifle. You'll never convince me otherwise. cool

---------------------------------------------
And by "fixed" you meant "inserted my opinion"

Do you know Jonathan Kimble well enough to say this? I doubt it. You should probably take a second to "think critically" instead of "be critical".

You accused him of being an attention whore. (subjective)

I doubted that you knew him well enough to make that appraisal of his character. Was I wrong? Did that offend you?

I honestly don't see any parallel between what you're accusing him of and me questioning you. I think your skin is a bit on the thin side. It's really not as big of an issue as you're making it.

And from what CommandEEr said, maybe the guy is just a little weird. There are people who don't have the best social skills for whatever reason (didn't learn them, or has a disability like aspergers or autism) so think about that before you throw him under the bus.

The other guy who said he'd known him his whole life says he's a nice guy. The situation isn't black and white.

Never said it was black and white

Went as far as to say that I may be the only person who believes as I do

Twice I think

I am criticizing him and you are criticizing me for doing so...I explain my reasoning in further detail and you say that makes me thin skinned

Simply clearly stating my opinion about the current Mountaineer

Re: Why do the Kimble threads keep getting removed?? 



semi-poor judgement call
Not to pick on you personally, but isn't there a single college-educated person on this board any day, anywhere, who has the remotest knowledge that the word is "JUDGMENT"????

If you were born and/or educated in the UK, will give you a pass since they actually do spell the word with the "e" that everyone on here so desperately wants to use.  But if you are an American, for the love of God, please either spell the word correctly or find a synonym to use in all future posts.

I'll be back the next time someone posts "mute" when they mean "moot".

Re: Why do the Kimble threads keep getting removed?? 


I would give you 100:1that the meat and pelt are being utilized. I'm not a hunter but I worked with many hunters. I know that bear hunters are adamant about not wasting anything that they kill. i would say that he used poor judgement in posting that video so that a bunch of PC geeks would be able to view it. Get your panties out of the crack of your butts and bitch & moan about something that matters.

I'm not criticizing you. I don't know why you think I am.

I suggested that your characterization of him wasn't fair. That's not an indictment of you.

As a student at WVU, I've run into Kimble a few times around campus. I see him so often that every time he sees me, he always comes up and says hello. My assessment of him.....?

One of the weirdest guys I've ever met.
