The highly touted DT from last year, Gary Brown, was kicked off Florida's football team after being accused of striking two women at a party. From the article "Florida coach Urban Meyer made it clear in the past that he does not tolerate violence against women." Now I'm no Urban Meyer fan, but I have to say, bravo. Domestic violence, especially women, should not be tolerated at all regardless of who you are.
OT- Brown Kicked Off Florida
that some engineers up at MSU wished Dantonio felt the same way about violence against nerds.
Zero-tolerance has yet to find its way to East Lansing.
I would love for someone like Drew Sharp to ask Dantonio at his next press conference if, in light of the Florida dismissal, he has any second thoughts about the way he handled the potluck attackers. (Not that he'd get a straight answer or anything, but Dantonio deserves to sweat a little about this.)
I'm surprised Urban didn't just suspend him for a half, though. Glad to see he was kicked off the team. Take note, Dantonio, you walking double-standard.
that every 12 seconds a woman is hit in this country, what they don't show is that every 8 seconds there is a man telling that woman that she has exactly 4 seconds to get out of his face.
Wouldn't it still be every 12 seconds, but staggered so that it's always 4 seconds before the slap occurs?
That would be true if none of the women took good advantage of the 4 seconds and left. Assuming that one third of the women left, there would more threats than assaults, and therefore they would occur more frequently than every 12 seconds. (I don't believe the poster meant it this way, so I agree with your criticism... I'm just sayin.)
that he has like 3 5* recruits to replace him
must be nice.
Even more important they were 2 over the 85 cap, and practice reports were that brown was bust.
So basically, coach has to nuke 2, player sucks, and he gives the program a black eye, oh, and a woman too. Yeah hard choice on this one.
Touché "umjgheitma;" I think that's more the reason Brown was kicked off the team as opposed to allegedly hitting the two women. This is just another opportunity for Meyer to come off as whole hearted wholesome person to next year’s recruits and their parents. Meyer just oozes ulterior motives.
They're both better battered.
The fact that I had nearly 3000 points for posting mindless gifs and terrible jokes was a little disconcerting. Thus, I've increased the wisecracks that are in poor taste.
I wouldn't want people confusing me for someone with any semblance of credibility.
People can tell if you're credible. I'm sure no one would take my opinion on actual football matters seriously.
The fact that we have more points than TomVH pretty much spells out the pointlessness of the whole system after a certain level. It's a great system to weed out trolls, but there isn't a linear relationship between points and value of contribution.
Why are we so against inappropriate jokes all of a sudden?
And people feel better about themselves when they make one of those soapboxy comments about how we should be above making inappropriate jokes at certain times. You know, because we're Michigan.
Won't find them here.
Women: They also need men about as much as a fish needs a bicycle.
they put computers in kitchens now?
Well played. +1
But for the record, I am at work, which is not in a kitchen.
I'm glad Urban Meyer is against domestic abuse. I wonder how he feels about armed robbery? I'd applaud him except I don't get applauded for doing the OBVIOUS right thing.
A Sparty joke has already been posted.
lol the jersey shore is such a crazy show
My favorite part of that gif is still the guy in the middle who gets grazed on that punch.
The underrated parts of this clip are the kid in the middle who gets grazed, the look on the puncher's face, and how Snooki has her hand in the area but never senses the punch is coming and makes no effort to block. I've seen a few too many episodes of Forensic Files so it occurs to me that they would say she suffered no defensive wounds.
While I'm no Urban Meyer fan at all, this was a great move on his part. That is just flat out unacceptable.
Isn't Urban Meyer on his "leave of absence"?
Why is anyone giving Meyer credit? Like he was noble to kick a woman-beater off of a football team? It's common sense.
But hardly common practice
