this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
For me it's pretty simple: the receipt for those white roses and his phone records. They should be pretty easy to produce. In fact, I bet he has already done so for that independent investigation paid for by Notre Dame. Either that or we can't trust Jack Swarbrick any more and that's just incomprehensible to me.

Mod edit two: BILG found this new piece on ESPN. I'd say it's big enough to go in the OP up here, but falls just short of needing a new one. If Te'o or ND has something to say, that should be a new thread; try to keep anything else in here. JGB
If [a Michigan student athlete] had [a] medical MJ card, and tested positive, would they still [get] suspended? I'l hang up and listen and will apologize in advance if this has been covered.
Mod edit: Took the names down, reframed it as a general question. I know what the internet says about the suspensions in question, but without an admission from either player or word from the staff it seems to be in better taste to offer the question as a general one. JGB.

Likely a greyshirt who will be on scholarship once one the current scholarship K/P's depart.
Actually better than even the average Angelique article, because they gave her some space and let her print a lot of quotes from Denard-
Talks about some interesting things with a "mystery trainer" and more joy in taking what comes at him. Enough to add to the Denard love pantheon.
Might be a bad question. But what ever happened to Shawn Conway. Last I knew he committed an signed but I haven't heard anything about him and couldn't find a goodbye post. I thought he could be a good receiver for us someday

Curious casting choices here, no?
LOS ANGELES -- Al Pacino will play Joe Paterno in a movie about the late Penn State football coach.
Producer Edward R. Pressman confirms Brian De Palma will direct "Happy Valley," the tentative title of the film, based on Joe Posnanski's best-seller "Paterno."
"'Happy Valley' reunites the 'Scarface' and 'Carlito's Way' team of De Palma and Pacino for the third time and I can't think of a better duo to tell this story of a complex, intensely righteous man who was brought down by his own tragic flaw," Pressman said in a statement. No start or release dates were given for the film.
While Pressman said the plot remains "under wraps," Posnanski's book followed Paterno's final years, as the winningest coach in college football history saw his career end in disgrace in 2011 with the sex abuse scandal involving assistant Jerry Sandusky.
We can only say this - the scene in which Paterno gets mad and yells a lot will be well done.
