As per Rivals. However, seems as if Penn State is leading for him. So much for snagging one of the Miami decommits post-Shannon.
"Penn State clearly team to beat for Louis-Jean now followed by BC. Dark horse? Oregon. Watch for the Ducks." -- Mike Farrell, Rivals
Today in Biology class, we were learning about the Cell Cycle and how a cell divides. My teacher decided to try to help us memorize the steps by teaching us hand gestures for each phase. She made an "O" for interphase, just like the OSU players made an "O" after scoring touchdowns. As the whole class followed her gestures, I refused. I then proceeded to put my head down on my desk as I remembered The Game. A few seconds later, she asked me why I wasn't doing the hand gestures. I just mumbled nevermind, and pretended to do them. My participation grade was marked down. Totally worth it, I HATE OSU! I hate how they try to run a damn fashion show during the game. Ridiculous throwback jerseys in 09 and the cherry colored ones this year with those gloves. Damn Buckeyes.
OK, as we sit amongst our laptops writing Warren Commission manuscripts or generally playing a rousing game of "What Is Dave Brandon Thinking." Many of you are season ticket holders for football and basketball and Im wondering what your sections neighborhood is like. Opposing fans are naturally annoying just by the presence of their obnoxious attire but they show up to the game in a different costume every time. My section includes the following. I have the older "down in front" couple who uncomfortably threaten never to come back because their requests are never accepted (they always return). The "after the play suggestor" mainly shouting "bomb" and "blitz" repeatably. Then who can forget "drinky hold me back fighting guy." My favorite is personalized. The kid in front of me during Amani Toomer's 4 seasons shouted "its not a tumah!" every time his name was announced, needless to say I cried when he graduated. Dont get me wrong Im not hating I love all who wear maize and blue. Think of it like your neighbor who doesnt mow his/her lawn I dont hate them I just would like them to mow their lawn. So, whats it like in your neighborhood?
Has anyone else read the Newton article on Yahoo! Sports by Dan Wetzel?
It discusses an interesting result of the NCAA ruling on Newton's re-instatement of eligibility. Basically, the future is cleared for third-party "go-betweens", non-agent "agents", and even the parents for asking a school for compensation in return for their son's(or even daughter's, in the bigger women's sports) acceptance to play for them with no fear of any lasting repercussions to the player, team, or even the person doing the "asking".
There is also an interesting poll there. Right now, the leading vote getter is that Newton should be suspended for the entire season(at 77%), second is no penalties(17%), third is suspension from SECCG(5%), and last is suspension for a half of the SECCG(1%). My question would be just who are the 17% that agree that no action should be taken against him?
With all the coach talk, I wanted to ask the question when the team practices again. Is it after the bowl selection? Any chance Tae Odoms makes it back for the bowl game?
