I have to admit, about 10 years ago, when he first started at ESPN, I really enjoyed listening to him. I haven't listened to him for 4 years now, and I can't say that I have missed him at all. Like you say, he just says the same thing over and over.

I'd rather listen to the Fabulous Sports Babe...

He spouts a special type of douche baggery that is hard for me to comprehend. Every body on here has him nailed: 1) He makes a controversial statement, 2) Backs it up with the most obscure information, 3) And then flops and makes an excuse for his inane comment. At least he was right last year when he said we were 1 year away from being elite.

If he does redshirt and he graduates, does he transfer? He wouldn't have to sit out a year, plus I think he still has to play a season without injury to shore up his stock in the NFL draft. If he doesn't play another college season, I see him signing with a NFL team as a free agent. I just think there are too many questions about his health and durability at this point.

I don't pay too much attention to ND football, but they maybe having these issues because the academics are too hard for some of the kids. If a kid had a chance to play, but his grades were going to keep him form playing, some players would consider cheating in the classroom just to play football.

Why, or how, Golson was allowed back on the team is beyond me, but it would be safe to say that the majority of coaches in college today would go out of their way to give a kid a second chance. Some would say it was to benefit the team, others would say it was to benefit the player. We will never know the truth, but the real reason probably lies somewhere in the middle.

Tough academic would be the exact reason the scandal is going on. There wouldn't be much need for a tutor to write papers for the athletes if the classes were easy.

I believe that part of the reason ND struggles every year to put a quality program on the field every year is because of their rigorous academics and their stringent admissions policy. I think that if there is even a shred of truth to all these rumors, those four young men will never see the inside of the ND locker room again. 

Maybe there is room for forgiveness - I don't know how deep the academic fraud goes. But, if they take their academics as serious as they claim too, I just don't see the four players on the team after this incident.

I agree completely. The other part of the rule is that the defender leaves his feet - and that doesn't happen can see his feet drag across the turf.

I am all for player safety, but that was a legal hit (IMO). I know others won't feel that way, but it was clean if you ask me.

I am only up to episode 5, but I think it is a pretty good show so far. Lots of good twists and turns.

With the language and 'situations' it almost like watching a HBO or Showtime series.
