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).

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.

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! 

Comment 21 Mar 2014

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!

Comment 21 Mar 2014

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).

Comment 20 Mar 2014

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."

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.

Comment 12 Mar 2014

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.

Comment 12 Mar 2014

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).
