Still do not want Wisconsin losing to Iowa.  Best case scenario is Wisky to beat Iowa, then Minny, then OSU trounce Wisky in BCG.  Wisky loss to Iowa and then win against Minny not as good for our playoff stretch.  I think that was the point of the question regarding a loss to Iowa.

Just have to be sure to distinguish between direct and circumstantial evidence.  In the case of Gurley, the guy has stated that he paid Gurley for autographs; that is direct evidence that Gurley broke the rules (no inference need be made).  The Winston signatures are circumstantial evidence of him breaking the rules, in that the media is inferring that he may have been paid by the guy since that guy has stated he paid Gurley.  So direct on Gurley since no inference is necessary (guy has plainly stated he paid Gurley), and circumstantial on Winston (one must infer that Winston was paid).  Whether any of it is true or not has no bearing on whether it is direct or circumstantial (the angry autograph dealer could be lying about paying Gurley, but his assertion that he paid Gurley is direct evidence of Gurley breaking the rules, regardless of it being true).  Not a trial lawyer, but going off of memory from evidence class.

I am confident that the deal is not about whether people can get the network in the area, but what tier it is on.  You can get the BTN essentially anywhere in the country (and Canada), if willing to pay for it through sports packages--have been able to for some time; the deals are about getting it to lower tiers (e.g., basic cable), so the network gets more coin in its pocket.  Such as the case in other B1G footprint states where it comes on the basic cable package.  

Talking about only cable providers here and not satellite providers (which seem to have it on basic everywhere, at least it is on DirectTV here in DC)

It certainly should, but the problem is with meat that isn't properly cooked that is also contaminated with a strain that makes humans ill.  If everyone cooked meat to the proper temperature you would hear of quite few less occurrences of contaminated meat, as the first sign of contaminated meat is often someone getting sick after not cooking it properly (as opposed to identifying it prior to distribution, which you may never hear about).

Well, people in prison have a history of making well thought through decisions, so I guess this guy must be an anomaly

I believe the criteria was what bands get listened to the most by people in that state, not what state the bands are from (hence the Nirvana/Rhode Island situation)

This is true in a civil action, but in Ohio all criminal batteries have been classified as a variation of an assault by statute.  So if he made contact, it would be an assault, not a battery.
