landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.

Deadspins take on top 25. I was not impressed by the statement on women and gays but overall it is amusing.
Ok i know many of you will smite me for posting this...but please have an open mind and just read the article. Remember when we were too under the microscope and how we all felt as the media tore us a new one.....hope this link works.
They say UM has a tough schedule and the usual talk about transition on offense and defense. Then Pollack says this....
"Denard Robinson isn't going to lose his ability to be explosive and they're going to score points, but how quickly can Greg Robinson (turn around the defense)?"
A dead horse? Perhaps. Sour grapes/attempted justification? Maybe so. But still an interesting read from a well-educated former college football player whose team is right in the thick of one of the biggest NCAA investigations of all time. Also somewhat of a counter argument/different perspective on Cousins' Gettysburg Address from the B1G media days.
Full disclosure: I went to Miami for undergrad, so...yea, that might explain why I felt the need to post this.
What’s that you say? The rules are the rules? I call b.s.. When the rules are propagated by the very same people they’re designed to benefit, I say the rules must be independently justifiable. What is the justification for saying that AJ Green can’t sell his jersey? That he won’t be an “amateur” anymore? Doesn’t the scholarship itself render him no longer an amateur by any objective definition? Doesn’t the fact that Georgia spent hundreds of millions of dollars advertising itself to AJ Green render him no longer an amateur? Doesn’t he stop being an amateur when UGA promises him that his career at Georgia will net him NFL millions? Doesn’t the fact that millions of dollars change hands thanks to the service he provides make him not an amateur?
