OT: SEC Charges Rudy With Securities Fraud
for an odd sequel.
EDIT- So you decided to take the time to up vote your own thread but not expand on what the link contains? Sweet!
The SEC beats down an overrated Notre Dame golden boy? Is it the 2007 Sugar Bowl again?
that in this case, the SEC is actually accusing someone ELSE of oversigning.
now Michael Douglas can play Rudy in the sequel ....
I've always kind of enjoyed mixing the two organizations up on purpose. It makes reading the news (especially the WSJ) more amusing.
offsides fraudulently inflating stock prices.
wellllll lookeee here we got ourselves a rhodes scholar
I don't know what to make of this.
Well if you had the paper you could make a pterodactyl or a broach.....
+1 for Airplane reference.
Next stop for Rudy....VH1's Where are they now?...Celebrity Rehab?
Maybe now the Domers will have to shut the hell up about Rudy.
during the time Rudy was there and informed me the majority of his story was bunk. He said Hollywood geatly exagerated his impact/influence on the team and fans.
I didn't think you had to have family or friends to know this. I think everyone knew that.
as opposed to one of us wouldn't you say? Or maybe it is just me...
Also, Rudy apparently spent about 15 years trying to market his story to Hollywood before someone finally bought it.
Hollywood exaggerated?? NO WAI!!!!
Are you suggesting Hollywood didnt/doesnt tell the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth?
Too good to be true! I never have to listen to a Domer talk about Rudy again. Plus, Donnie Warner is a better story.
IF NOTRE DAME HAD STAYED WITHIN ITS MAN-BUILDING TRADITIONS OF GRIT AND FULLBACK DIVES EVERY PLAY. THROWING THE BALL IS AN INSIDIOUS TEMPTATION TO CUT CORNERS, AND WITH THAT HORRENDOUS EXAMPLE BEING SHOWN IN SOUTH BEND, EVEN THE GREAT RUDY WAS LED ASTRAY. WE MUST ALL DO OUR PENANCE. PASSING THE BALL ONLY LEADS TO TURNOVERS AND MORTAL SIN. WHEN WE RETURN TO OUR TRADITIONAL VALUES AND RUN TOWARD THE DEFENSE INSTEAD OF PASSING AWAY FROM IT, WE WILL FINALLY RETURN TO GLORY AND RUDY SHALL ONLY GET COMMUNITY SERVICE!!!
Why did I enjoy sending that to my domer buddy so much? I'm supposed to be better than that.
They have underacheived, they have to put up with Freakbass, and now their pride and joy, who represents everything "good" about ND, is accused of scamming investors out of $11 million. All of this is in addition to the real-life tragedy that played out last year.
I would imagine they will suffer a lot of negative recruiting by all rival coaches not named Brady Hoke.
Damn I almost feel bad for them...
Astin is saying FML.
He may as well plead guilty since Notre Dame has not beaten an SEC team in years!

Greed is good baby!!!
that sometimes people get what they deserve. Anyone dumb enough to buy stock in a "Rudy" sports drink should be robbed of every dollar they have. Seriously, think about it, "Rudy" drink? Really? How could that not be the next big thing?
what LSUFreek comes up with for this.
Why is the slogan of this drink not "Dream Big! Never Quit! Jump Offsides!"
THE BEST REG'LATOREE BODY IN THE KUNTRY, PAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWLLLLLLL
woods...? Or put another way, is taking money from dumb dumbs really wrong? I mean c'mon man "Rudy" sports drink. Yup, that's were I want to put my money.
For the double dose of sarcasm, my first post wasn't showing up.
Generally speaking, in SEC securities fraud cases the SEC does not have to prove that anybody "relied on" your fraudulent conduct. In other words, they don't have to prove that your fraudulent scheme "worked."
Well... that's just some tremendous investigative work by the SEC.
has released a statement:
...is that veteran character actor Chelcie Ross will be his lawyer. Is this correct?
I'm wondering if he'll be the first Notre Dame player carried off to jail since 1975....
I cant wait to see the T shirts this fall. I plan on wearing a maize T shirt with something like this on it.
I don't know why everyone's jumpiny for joy at this. Dude seems like something of a self-promoter, but if you read the summary on the SEC website, it sounds like most of the dirty work in the scheme was carried out by his business partners. But the larger point is - why take so much pleasure in someone's troubles? I get it when a football team is doing poorly and you can rip on your friends a bit (MSU circa John L. Smith/Bobby Williams). But this is real life.
Maybe his first mistake was going into business with a guy named "Rocky" who moved the company to Vegas. At that point, it was only a matter of time.
Actually, the first mistake was calling a beverage "Rudy." Yuck!
His first mistake was being offside.
Sorry Tinseltown. Reality swallowed up another neon God you made for the silver screen.
Add "Rudy" memorabilia to the burning piles of Joepa and Tressel gear.
Jon Favreau will lead his defense team with Vince Vaughn. Sean Astin will act as a go-between with Frodo Bagins.
The guy spoke at our highschool back in the day (not sure why). Right around the time Kurt Cobain died. He proceeded to rip on a dead man and call his music "garbage" and a bad influence. He was not received well by the students.
I loved having D-list celebrities fill my head with lies back in the day!
....must've missed class at ND on the day they taught the parable about, "...let he who is without sin cast the first stone..."
Thanks for sharing, your anecdote just makes this even more delicious.
Who's the wild man now?
Rudy ate at Sandusky's house. Holtz called 911 and slobbered into the phone.
Don't worry - he'll be fine. the only agency more punchless than the NCAA is the SEC.
they have boats?
