At first blush, it seems to mean the players are gonna get a pretty small amount of money (cost of attendance + $5,000 per year) compared to what they are bringing in for the schools/NCAA/networks. It also seems to mean that the judge feels these students are incapable of managing that $5,000 per year on their own until they graduate.

And that in no way addresses the fact that he is labeled as a sex offender. When a rudimentary google search yields your name as a person found to have committed sexual misconduct, you are labeled as a sex offender. To say otherwise is naive at best and intellectually dishonest at worst.

This has nothing to do with assumption of risk. This is an actuality.

They are absolutely labeled as sex offenders. You think Brendan Gibbons isn't labeled as a sex offender just because he isn't on a state registration list? He will be called a rapist for the rest of his life, as will any person like the student from Duke who is forced to sue if he/she is wrongfully found to have committed "sexual misconduct". Once you have to sue, your name is public for any employer or google search to find.
I've put plenty of people on the sex offender registry in California. I'm perfectly aware of what it is. I'm also not naive enough to believe that once a school makes a finding like this and you have to sue to get it corrected that it won't follow you for years.

@AlexMalzone: Won't be the last time I'm in a good mood driving home from Columbus #GoBlue
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Your position holds water so||
Your position holds water so long as you are willing to be publicly labeled as a sex offender when you did not commit any offense. Are you? Are you willing to have your father/brother/son carry that label unjustly? It's easy to take that position when you are not the one asked to bear the burden.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||That is absolutely not what||
That is absolutely not what you were referencing when you said "I'm guessing not." You were referring to your sarcastic hypothetical of women setting up men for unwanted sex, i.e. rape. And you were sarcastic because you were dismissing it as a possibility, by implication. It can and does happen. It is not a mere theoretical possibility.

I don't get it. He's singing under an overpass but there's no Dr. Pepper, no party and no Pitbull. Everyone knows that when you sing under a freeway, parties break out and Pitbull shows up. It's science.

He switches it a lot. He's been visiting several different schools and will put up stuff from those schools when he visits.

Great friend of mine happens to be one of the architects on the new building. He sent me some photos from the opening today. They sort of provide better perspective than the closeup shots from the twitter feed.

Averaged 13.6 points, 8.6 rebounds. Pretty damn nice transfer to pick up. He was supposed to take some more visits (such as Indiana) but I guess he found what he wanted at OSU.

This has been my question about the whole union debate from the beginning. I don't know anything about tax law but I figure someone on the board would know. Do the players at Northwestern, since they are now deemed employees, have to pay taxes for the benefits they have received?

This post made me think of Morris Day & The Time. How effin good were they?!

I like the fact that Ben Wallace thought he could just run away from the scene and not get caught.
"Uh . . . you might want to look for the 6'10" guy."

Personal take from an admitted pessimist is that Rust did not find his happiness. He's a prisoner who was finally released only to have the warden slam the gate shut when he was one step away from getting out and then being thrown back in his cell.
I can see where he would possibly have some hope at this point, realizing that when he does finally die there will be happiness waiting for him. But I don't think he's happy in any way. Hell, that's the only time all season he cried, if I remember correctly. So maybe he can look forward to some peace when he dies. But as Marty pointed out, maybe there's nothing that can kill Rust Cohle.

Not trying to be a jerk, but I honestly don't think that makes one bit of difference in terms of what the feds are looking at. This isn't going to be a question of what the ultimate findings of the universities were in each respective case. It's a question of whether the universities even got to the point of trying to make the findings.
In other words, UM can say to feds, "You want to know if we are performing the mandated investigations on complaints of sexual misconduct and then conducting hearings based on the mandated lower standard of proof? Yes, we are. As proof, we kicked out Brendan Gibbons using our investigation and new hearing." UM might still have problems about whether they started the investigation quickly enough. But there is no question that the investigation was done and hearings were conducted.
Can MSU say the same? I have no idea. We'll all find out soon enough.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||I love it. Spartan fans now||
I love it. Spartan fans now want to rely on the defense of, "but they were never prosecuted!" Yeah, just like Gibbons. You guys are COMPLETELY missing the point.
The Feds are now investigating you (and UM) to see if you properly implemented the new mandatory rules provided in 2011 stating that universities are now obligated to investigate any known instances of possible sexual misconduct and the use the lowered "preponderance of the evidence" standard to determine if the allegations are true.
In UM's case, we can point to the expulsion of Gibbons and say we implemented the proper procedures. MSU can't say the same with its situation.

The posters on RCMB are now angry. They want to know why the players could be part of the investigation when they were never prosecuted.
|25 weeks 1 hour ago||In the preview for next||
In the preview for next week's show, Cohle says to Marty, "There's something you're gonna need to look at." Cut away and we then see Marty looking at a computer screen in the background while Cohle faces the camera. Marty gets upset and yells, "No!"
I'm wondering if Cohle stumbled on a picture of Marty's daughter during his own investigation and that's what he has on his computer screen. That could be what motivated Cohle to come back and kill Tuttle.
I dunno. Just makin' shit up at this point.

Okay, last one. I swear. Was the landscaper from episode 3 the scarred "spaghetti" man?

If you really want to see something from the truth-is-stranger-than-fiction files, check out this comparison between True Detective and an actual series of killings.
|25 weeks 7 hours ago||I think what you have is more||
I think what you have is more than one killer. No doubt Tuttle is one of them and maybe the Yellow King himself. And I stil think there's a good chance Rust killed Tuttle but with this show, who the hell knows?

By the way, here are some photos to support the connection you think is coming with Marty's daughters. This is the picture of the dolls Marty's daughter was playing with:
Here is a photo of Dora Lang surrounded by five horsmen:
Here is a photo of Rust Cohle carving out figures from beer cans. Notice the yellow stars on the heads. Sorta like a king's crown.
Rust Cohle is an anagram of Horse Cult.
