I often wonder how appalled Woody Hayes would be by what football coaches get paid these days.

Could you really fault any college football fan for wanting to catch ND and Navy in South Bend? It is sorta like wanting to see NY-Boston in Fenway isn't it?

I got to get my own "Go Cats!" in there. They're both of my second favorite teams this week.

I think it will be in my rotation for the evening surfing. Probably DVR it and watch it Sunday morning unless the US team stinks the joint up.

And I knew I should have refreshed and re-checked the thread before posting. I'm right there with you. What is it they hope to accomplish in the middles of the season? Unless the whole team is going to the AD with a laundry list of the coach doing a Captain Bligh imitation sorts of things...

The Illinois situation comes to mind but there haven't really been similar crumblings from Terps players have there?

What is being given as his motivation for what he is accused of?

Perhaps he was walking away from her. She jumped on his back and started pounding him and he "slammed" her to get her off of him?

I've found that when there is a violent confrontation between a man and a woman most only see the male's action and become blind to its context. Seems to me that were there an entirely unprovoked act by this man upon this woman charges would not be dropped. It doesn't take much effort to spin any situation like this in prejudice of the man.

Of course this kid may just be a scumbag who hurts women for his amusement. I however find that unlikely. Boys have it drilled into them their entire lives not to hit girls.

Seems to me we're only getting her side of the story. "Romantically involved" is the give away for me. What's the saying, "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned."

Joking aside. If you are attacked, anything you do that stops your attacker yet does not result in your attacker requiring a trip to the hospital or a trip to the dentist is "reasonable force."

Are you sure? Maybe she started the altercation. (I do not have all the facts on this.)

Since it was a football player hitting a girl the authorities can't risk a social media fueled internet lynch mob coming after them for not taking it seriously.

It isn't an inside joke. As you have no doubt noted, it has been out for quite some time.

Comment 05 Oct 2015

Well because Ole Miss is in the awesome SEC and because Northwestern is in the awful B1G. I just hope the Cats keep winning. My tied for second favorite B1G team.

I think there was a time when a sense of noblesse oblige ( "nobility obliges" or the obligation of the nobility) was much more common than it is today. Which is not to say this sort of thing never happened "back in the day." Maybe we're just more aware of all of this with modern communications tech.

There is meant to be a cap but something with one of the site updates had the "mercy rule" not  working properly. I am unsure if it is still the case or not.

That's rough. Nothing wrong with feeling any of the things you're feeling. Seems pretty much a perfectly normal reaction to the whole thing. I got nothing useful for you as to how to get through it though.

At sixty+ I don't see how the warehouse and making deliveries is an option for you though unless you're keeping all the other bennies and only taking the pay cut. Depending on how physical what you'd end up doing in the warehouse and delivering would be.

Take the severance and your rolodex and a big ole dump on the floor of the "bosses" office.

I see. Is this guy getting in trouble a long time and re-occurring issue or should I lean to the idea Indiana just doesn't want some girl carrying her mattress around campus all year?
