"Though I received no official response to these sophisticated and elegant tweets to the Illini Athletic Department, I would like to think that Beckman spent the evening prank calling everyone in Illinois named George McLellan and then ordering an absurd amount of hats off an internet haberdashery to hoard in his home's hat annex."

I don't even think the Browns would make that move.

So when Sparty gets rolled at Autzen this year, loses to Michigan, Nebraska and Penn State and Mark D. runs the same game about the officials, injuries etc. (same excuses he ran post ND this year) will we see the Sparty football nut hugging desist as well?

I've not followed the QB recruiting too closely (a lot of moving parts there it seems post Borges). Given the quarterback offers out there with Michigan can you simplify this for me with a list of the offered quarterbacks and their likelihood of actual commitment? Also, any other offers you see occurring (i.e., local product Malzone etc.) and how you see that factoring in.

For the "old school" guys who remember Mike Tyson from his fighting days it was actually "Bolivian".

Now what would be interesting would be her actually discussing this issue. When he flips it's bound to come out at some level.

It's what the young people call a meme. It's like a "thing" that obtained popularity due to its relative hilarity and how this easily connects to the Sparty fanbase. It's easy to imagine Sparties painting that.

Some of us view the contributions of people like Bob Knight, Knight's protege Mike Krzyzewski, Knight's personal friend Bo Schembechler, Schembechler's mentor Woody Hayes, etc., etc., as infinitely more important to collegiate athletics than the two scandal-tainted years Chris Webber was in Ann Arbor
"Some of us"...but not "all of us"; at least not those of us who have the ability to consider context.
You identify two groups of people: a) old white guys and b) young black kids with baggy shorts and black socks. You note the former to have been "infinitely more important to college athletics". Perhaps within the instutional construct you are correct. That said, your narrative is a seriously limited one.
The concept of "contribution" that you bring up is also an interesting one. You don't define it. At a sociocultural level I think you'd have a hard time arguing the Fab 5's lasting and remarkably game changing influence vs. your crew of "old white guys" as I identiifed. I think this is the point: Knight, Bo, Coach K and Woody all "contributed" at an institutional level.
The nature of the Fab 5's "contribution" is bigger than that. It's regrettable your focus is so narrow you can't see that.
