Don't forget to mention that Epstein was a financier and partner in that little construction project.  It would appear that he and Les were pretty cozy.

) The second reason they have ever lost a game, besides the other teams all cheating, is that the refs jobbed them.  Any game.  Not just "the spot". (btw, they got the spot right).  If you read the ongoing during their baseball run, they were complaining about the strike zone.....EVERY PITCH.  Some of their forums, they'll dissect losses over the last few years and conclude that if the refs hadn't been obviously against them, they'd have been National champs about 6 times in the last 10

2) Academics: obviously, as stated, their General Studies is equivalent to anything from Yale or Harvard.

3) They have "special plays" they are just saving for the right time.  Not just with Gattis.  During their revenge tour  epic failure of last season, they kept telling each other that Jimmy had these top secret plays he'd been saving all year to pull out against OSU....because you know, you never need to actually work on plays under actual game conditions to be successful....unless you're OSU with a first time 12 gauge throwing bombs all night.

Substitute PSU fans for UM fans, and this is the same rationale that you get on the BWI circle-jerk.

Hilarious to think of PSU losing out to OSU because of academics.  The guys over on BWI are always harping on the "didn't come to play school" quote as evidence of the supposed OSU "football factory."  When Toutant decommitted, they were saying things like "he's not that good, anyway" (of course).  Now, they'll probably change over to "he's not that smart, probably couldn't make it in our (PSU's) engineering program."  Just too funny.

I'm not getting mad.  Obviously, it doesn't affect me in the least, and I've said up front that I have no way of knowing if it is true as reported.  I'm just saying that, if it is true, that's no way to roll.  And if I had been on the receiving end of something like that, it would make me question whether I wanted to work for someone who obviously didn't care about my well-being in the least.

There's a vast difference between "doing your job" and "getting screwed by your boss."  Based on the results on the field, I would say that Coombs was "doing his job" very well indeed.  And as far as we know, the whole reason he left OSU and went to the NFL is because he didn't want to put up with crap like this anymore.

Again, I don't know if the story, as told by ZS, is 100% factual, or has been embellished to some degree.  But if it is true, that's a crappy way to treat your employees.  I learned long ago, from my experience in the military, that "authority is given, but respect is earned."  Actions like this do not earn respect.  Quite the opposite.
