I'm sure the police will be investigating this for a while now.

I found it hilarious after the incident that people were actually suggesting that none of the attackers would have known Ball and that it could have been a random attack.  I know Madison is a very good size campus, however do people really think that three students their or even three non-students wouldn't know the star of the team and possible heisman finalist just from his press clippings during his career?
