For those unfamiliar, Drew Sharp plagiarized an article written by David Harns that was posted to isportsweb.com. The original story written by Harns was about a friendship that developed between Connor Cook and Miranda Shay McCoy (a quadriplegic). Only for context here is Sharp's direct ripoff of the article.
This first bit sort of sets the tone:
I am, however, not satisfied with how Sharp has handled it. Put bluntly, I did my best to take the high road during this situation, assuming Drew Sharp would join me there eventually. Clearly, he has not.
I didn't want to quote the whole article just highlighted this first bit.
See for yourself or neg away. I thought anything anti-sharp is good.
The article talks about the genius of Harbaugh setting up satellite camps down south, and his overall media and promotion strategy. It reads like a fan letter about Coach Harbaugh.
I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.
For those who haven't seen it yet, it's a nice little video on ESPN lauding Gardner and sportsmanship in general.
And here's a Freep appreciation article on Gardner as well:
I've never been a huge fan of Kid Rock, but his response to Susan Tompor's Free Press article on his "Made in Detroit" clothing line has me reevaluating that.
Too bad DB couldn’t have opened with the same line as Kid Rock back during the Freep Jihad presser..
KID'S RESPONSELet me first start off by cordially inviting you to go fuck yourself. I have always said that I do care what people in my hometown think of me, and the hatchet job you have just written about The Made In Detroit company in The Detroit Free Press has made me so upset that I am left with no choice but to defend myself and my company.
Dear Susan Tompor,
Is it just me or is Michael Rosenberg correct on his article. He claims MSU has to lose for Michigan to win the division.
I thought if there was a three way tie, that Michigan would win on overall record as Nebraska and MSU would each have two losses. Am I wrong here, does it go to big 10 record first and that's what would put MSU in with a three way tie.
*** WARNING: Freep article ***
I'm not posting this to bash the Freep or to increase the odds that Section 1 blows an O-ring, although I think the guy is probably at risk for that. Maybe someone could modify his hosts file and redirect him to something happy.
