I don't care whether they are "journalists" or entertainers. Personally, I think they're entertainers, so that Sullivan v. New York Times does not apply. They only reason I could even imagine talking to their "investigators" would be to paint myself in such a light that I could gain standing to sue and destroy them. Even put into the suit that I will not take a red cent from ABC/Disney, only from ESPN directly.
Regarding the Bag Men story, the only impermissible benefit I have no problem with was when the Bag Man paid for the recruit's sister to go to rehab and helped her get a job, so that his niece and nephew could have a mother. If that's an NCAA violation, go ahead and do it, because frankly, you are improving the lives of that recruit's entire family, and probably having a greater positive effect on them than just plain cash payments.
Thanks for the great content. I do wonder whether Dontre will have the hands to be more of a utility guy than D. Thomas was at Oregon, because I don't remember how often he was getting hit while catching a pass (which will occasionally happen playing as a wideout).
You can actually put the link for subscriber WSJ articles into Google's search engine after searching for something else, and it'll pull up the whole thing without that paywall.
And that's the way it is.
Although I wouldn't expect him to have any idea why that's funny.
Sherman was so up in the SEC's head that he was the first president of LSU.
And in the hellhole we call Ann Arbor!
"When we hit 88 Mile per hour, you're going to see some serious Sh!t"
The craziest part about that goal line stand in 2012 was that Montee Ball was going to set the record against us with that score, and he'd only fumbled twice in his career before that one.
And didn't he score the extra point that put them up on Texas in that ridiculous Crabtree catch game?
It's Obama's Craft Jersey. (No seriously, some folks let the Pres. do O-H-I-O as O-I-H-O the first time, then got it right, and in the Ohio Union too!)
then the right one:
And i'm pretty sure that at least one of the "gentlemen" in the picture was in Law school at Moritz at the time after graduating from tOSU for his undergrad. For shame!
Well, the good news is that I don't have to give the NCAA anymore money this year. I can quit watching their cash cow, which is hopefully a nice punch in the nuts to Emmert. I already feel like I've overpaid them by $3.07.
The question is, why are the Contra-Sabanistas running arms to Iran, with the CIA's approval? What do you have to say now Ollie South!
I think Grant Hill is spot on with why people hate Duke. Most people don't want to think of themselves as racist, therefore they tend to hate the teams with good white players more (see Aaron Craft, Ohio State).
The Cincinnati Chili fans explanation is epic. And I love Skyline.
My cousin's kid will probably play D-1 baseball somewhere, while he gets his education (he's really good, but not so much that college would hurt his chances at an MLB career), and I kind of want to go visit while he's in college, and make a shirt that says "NCAA "Logic" 5 games = $3.07", and wear it around the school's compliance staff, so they have to investigate. And when they investigate, I will merely look at them and say, "No, I deny your authority over me, as a person independent of this institution and the NCAA."
5) is a tough one for me, because my mom was 6 months pregnant with me when she went to the game (on her birthday) when Pete hit 4192, and of course, Tressel is Tressel.
I have to give it to Thurber over Clark Gable, given that he popularized the song, "We don't give a damn for the whole State of Michigan."
The question is can the Southern Conference pull off the upset in two sports?
I honestly didn't know that the Warner Brothers were from Ohio, or Roger Ailes.
Is Jayson Tatum related to a certain famous Buckeye? I can't imagine that's a very common last name. Plus if you look at his blog, he has a pic of himself in an tOSU shirt.
It's okay. They'll either take Kenny G late in the draft, or sign him rookie free agent. Then you just have to root for Brady to Bledsoe.
Grew up as a Bengals fan. Then I learned the history of the franchise (aka, not hiring Bill Walsh), and learned how much of a scumbag Mike Brown is, and gave up on that team until a new owner is in place (and I'm not talking about Brown's daughter, she's terrible too).
