Skull Session: Justin Fields Crushes Homer at Wrigley, Nick Mangold Pounds a Beer on the Jumbotron, and NCAA Cracks Down on Flopping

Ohio Stadium is looking good in today's skull session.

I just want my car back, man.

Word of the Day: Variegate.

 FLOPPERS, BEWARE! It's happened! The NCAA has done something good!

The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel approved allowing men's basketball officials to assess Class B technical fouls to players who fake being fouled, beginning in the 2022-23 season. 

If a player is called for flopping, the opposing team would shoot one free throw. Previously, officials would issue a warning before assessing a technical foul in subsequent incidents judged to be flopping.

However, they're also experimenting with *more* television timeouts in the NIT Tournament, which is exactly what everyone needed and is asking for.

You win some, you lose some.

 LEGENDARY. Nick Mangold has earned roughly $50 million during his time in the NFL, but at the end of the day, he's still just One Of Us.

Immediately pounding his beer when he realizes he's on the jumbotron is about the most offensive lineman thing I have ever seen.

Also, it looks like he's got a playoff beard going? All around, 10 out of 10. No notes.

 BYE BYE, BASEBALL! Y'all remember that time Justin Fields was rumored to be considering playing for the Ohio State baseball team and everyone thought it was just a ploy to help him get immediate eligibility?

Well, it probably was – he was never going to play baseball for the Buckeyes. But that doesn't mean he couldn't have if he wanted to.

I saw a Tweet that said "Matt Nagy would have made him bunt" and it was, without doubt, the perfect response to this video.

 BLURST IMAGE. I don't know how I personally feel about this photograph, but I know exactly how it's going to make the Michigan Men feel.

Imagine if Jim Tressel's grandson were a five-star quarterback and he voluntarily chose to go to Notre Dame instead. Incomprehensible, right? Lloyd Carr's son does it and the majority of the Michigan fanbase is like "yeah, makes sense."

THAT, folks, is the difference between these two programs.

 SONG OF THE DAY. "Colly Strings" by Manchester Orchestra.

 NOT STICKING TO SPORTS. The IRS is coming for your Venmo income... You can book stays in Scooby Doo's Mystery Machine hosted by real-life Shaggy... A lobster diver was completely swallowed by a humpback whale off... NASA is putting together a research team to study UFOs... Technologists are using AI to "expand" famous works of art... The deep south's dame's of dildos...
