"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Good article on Tom Brady. Starts out a little about deflategate (which, I'm over), but then goes into his story growing up, playing at Michigan, being drafted in late rounds, etc...
Nothing new, nothing provocative, but a good read about the GOAT.
Brady to Danny Amendola. Amendola gives ball away after catch. He must not have been counting.
Dan Marino, Brett Favre & Peyton Manning are the others.
This story has been told several times, but I thought I would link it in case anyone had never read about it before. This new article includes several of his high school recruiting highlights.
EDIT: Sorry if already posted - I looked but couldn't find a topic about this.
Deadspin published the transcript of Tom Brady's appeal hearing last night, including some key highlights from the transcript. It makes for absolutely hilarious reading. Take a look.
I love Ballghazi because it exposes the corruption and profound stupidity of Roger Goodell and the NFL's other top leaders without the sadness and fury that come from reading about domestic violence. It is a wonderful scandal and I hope it continues to fester and humiliate the NFL for months and years to come.
Also, Charles Pierce's column about it at Grantland is terrific. A sample:
Meanwhile, Goodell’s strong support of the NFL’s own decision gave every preening moralist within reach of a keyboard a chance to yell about “cheating” and what ever can we tell the children? More than a few people advised Brady to suck it up and take the penalty because you can’t fight City Hall, overlooking the fact that, in this particular case, City Hall is presided over by a guy who couldn’t pour juice out of his loafers if the instructions were written on the heel.
