In case anyone else is wondering, like I was:
In professional wrestling, kayfabe (pronounced /ˈkeɪfeɪb/) is the portrayal of events within the industry as "real" or "true". Specifically, the portrayal of professional wrestling, in particular the competition and rivalries between participants, as being genuine or not of a worked nature. Referring to events or interviews as being a "chore" means that the event/interview has been "kayfabed" or staged, or is part of a wrestling angle while being passed off as legitimate. Kayfabe has also evolved to become a code word of sorts for maintaining this "reality" within the realm of the general public. Kayfabe is often seen as the suspension of disbelief that is used to create the non-wrestling aspects of promotions, such as feuds, angles, and gimmicks, in a similar manner with other forms of entertainment such as soap opera or film. In relative terms, a wrestler breaking kayfabe during a show would be likened to an actor breaking character on camera. Also, since wrestling is performed in front of a live audience, whose interaction with the show is crucial to the show's success (see pop), one might compare kayfabe to the fourth wall, since there is hardly any conventional fourth wall to begin with.
I didn't even think twice about the word kayfabe being used. The wrestling loving nerd in me....
Pro Wrestling got it from Carnies.
And then there's yet another isolated incident, which has seemingly sent even Buckeye diehards over the edge. They're whipping up editorial cartoons that imply lack of institutional control, tweeting about lack of institutional control, and starting Fire Gene Smith blogs that list lack of institutional control as the #1 reason. At this point the only groups of people who doesn't perceive the events at OSU as systemic problem are Gene Smith's immediate family (not including the dog, which is wise to your game) and the NCAA.
I went to check out this rampant tweeting about 'lack of institutional control' and I got a message, "Twitter is over capacity"
TWIS is fucking hilarious as usual. It is always twice as funny when Ohio is the featured fanbase.
Things might not be working out for BC with Coach Spaz but at least they stuck to their guns when they fired Jagodzinski for interviewing somewhere else. Ohh wait, that was arrogant and didn't make one bit of sense. HAHAHA
conference expansion threads edited by the mods to remove any mention of wanting bc in the B1G? /s
You gotta love it when 4 out of 5 TWIS are headlined by ND/TSIO. I just hope the following weeks continue to provide us all with rivals' tears for our enjoyment.

i've been checking for this here and on sbnation every few hours for the last couple days, i'm like an addict.
I laughed the hardest at the very last sentence:
"And Ohio State grinds out 16 yards of offense against Nebraska."
I am 100% routing for this now.
"He has done what Mason and Brewster could not do. … This is my last post regarding football until he is fired along with Maturi. See you all in 2014 or 2015." - Minny fan
Well, to be fair, they TRIED not to do it....Kill had little choice but to do it despite not wanting to do it.
DAMN YOU, COMCAST!
