On Windows Phone 8, the login drop down (from the sidebar) is a little wonky. It shown up, then the page scrolls wayyyy down. I could type my name, but had to scroll back up and re-open the login dropdown to enter my password. When I tried to re-open it a third time to hit the login button, the dropdown vanished, so that I ended up hitting "forum" instead

Derp, need to correct a minor error - by "typical musician" I meant, "typical famous musician with a record contract."  Silly me.

Bert, 8 days ago:

Bielema said no other programs have reached out to speak to other Arkansas assistant coaches. Defensive coordinator Chris Ash and linebackers coach Randy Shannon were recently linked to other jobs in published reports.

"The distance between truth and reality can be pretty wide in coaching," Bielema said.

Really love that last quote.

At any rate, the point isn't that he did it, but that nobody cared to find out whether he did it.  Not being charged desn't mean much, given the spoliation of evidence and the lack of interest in investigation.  The fact of the matter is, we'll never know what happened, thanks to the Tallahassee police department.

As I said - maybe he did it, maybe not.  But the school, investigators, and coaches don't seem to care about even the accusation.  Again, if it were a normal person, or even a backup on the football team, the investigation would've proceeded, the accuser wouldn't have been intimidated with reminders of the consequences of accusing such a popular figure.

Weren't we applauding the suspension of Hyde?  We were certainly hoping he'd be absolved, but it was the right thing to do.  FSU fans, on the other hand, do one of these outside the courthouse:

Disappointing.  While the SEC may represent all that annoys me about college football, FSU represents all that makes me uncomfortable with being a fan and supporting the institution of college football generally.  They have the same head-in-the-sand mentality that allowed the PSU scandal to go on for years, with the school, coaches, and town looking the other way and putting a thumb on the scales for the star football player who can bring a trophy home.  Maybe he did it, maybe not, but a mere mortal in his situation would be investigated and suspended from school pending the investigation.  It's the same attitude that brought us "Affluenza," but nobody cares outside of its impact on the field.  Would've been nice to at least see FSU not rewarded with a MNC for their terrible behavior.

OK, rant over.  Bed time.

Can we have already forgotten Jameis Winston?  At the very least, even if the guy isn't guilty, the school, town, and program did nothing - the investigation was delayed, half-assed, and reeked of trying to intimidate the alleged victim out of pressing charges, and you can bet that if Miller were being investigated for rape - rape! - he'd've been suspended.  Not so in Tallahassee.

At least we know the Ducks won't be too disappointed about missing out on a Rose Bowl trip.
