State Not Claiming Palmeiro???????

As I was watching WTVA News tonight with former MSU Quarterback Matt Wyatt as sports anchor, they began talking about the Mississippi State football game. They did a quick feature on a pregame ceremony on how State honored former baseball players for their financial contributions to the new athletic facilities on the Starkville campus. Among those present were former Bulldog and MLB greats Will Clark and Jeff Brantley. Who was noticeably absent was former star and major giver to the project Raphael Palmeiro. Neither WTVA nor several of the baseball players mentioned Palmeiro in their discussions. My question is, Is State going to strike Palmeiro from the books after he was one of the major givers to the facility project? It appears Palmeiro's latest P.R. debacle has caused him to fall off the radar in Starkville.
