|4 weeks 5 days ago||Vandy||
I am not sure whether things have changed, but in the 1990s Vandy had a reputation for turning away the top recruits it could get due to very high academic standards--including eventual Kentucky star and Nashvillian Ron Mercer. I think they also had no athletic director or had some similar alternative structure that de-emphasized athletics.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Gerg Part Deux||
Given the disaster that was The Gerg (his Super Bowl D Coordinator)was at UM, I think salvaging the career of another member of that staff is a poor idea. Skeletor be gone!

Been a while since I've seen Junior Brown and his guit-steel.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Chad Gaya||
That's Chad Gaya, silly. The one that goes "then came the dog that bit the cat that ate the kid my father bought for twoooo zuzim". I think kid here means goat, not a song about human trafficking.

In Soviet Russia, you no pay for college...college pay you!
|37 weeks 1 hour ago||But is it sourced?||
Sure it's his job. But if the people in question are denying it, it makes you wonder whether he has an actual source or is contorting a safe assumption into an actual decision without getting anything from a legitimate source.
|40 weeks 3 days ago||UVA and UM swap||
It seems to me the committee can give the 1 seed to UM if we win (with UVA as the 2 in the East) and give UVA the 1 seed if we lose (and us the 2 seed in the East), allowing the committee to keep the rest of the bracket the same.

Lunardi's nitty report has us at #3 overall jumping both Nova and Wichita State.

Personally, I thought one of the more itneresting features of the finale was MM's breakdown at the end, when he was discussing his near death experience.
This was a character as steeped in nihilism as I can remember on television. References to death being the end, with no promise of afterlife and a stark opposition to religion and its promises of an afterlife or salvation. Even in the last episode, he refers to people as "sencient meat"--to which WH responds, "What's scented meat?".
Then, during his near-death experience, he feels a connected to his late daughter and father and emerges from that experience with the conclusion that in the battle between light and dark--that light is winning (since there was only dark in the beginning).
Whether one believes in afterlife, etc., does not matter to me. But, I thought that change represented a dramatic shift in the character forged by his experience in the case. Either way, I thought it pretty interesting from a character development standpoint.
|48 weeks 2 days ago||FERPA||
FERPA is generally interpreted very broadly. Almost all records created by a university about a student are treated as FERPA protected. There are some specific exceptions created by regulation and statute, but most docs don't fit in them so most are protected.

Franklin is a good coach with a bright future. But there is an ongoing rape investigation at Vandy involving football players. In all likelihood, Franklin will emerge free from any legitimate criticism or stain. But, it's not closed yet.
If you were PSU, would you want to risk hiring him only to find out in a few months that he knew, said or did something that reflected badly on him? Seems like an unnecessary risk when there are other good candidates unconnected to any similar investigation.
Seemingly hits too close to home for PSU at this point.

I actually went to the BWW Bowl last night. We took our young kids so we left early enough to get home by 11 pm AZ time and we happened to catch the start of the evening SportCenter. There were four bowl games yesterday and some top ten basketball match ups. ESPN led SportCenter with the UFC fight.

I used to love watching a huge slate of overlapping bowl games on NYD. I feel like they now go out I their way now to make sure the games don't conflict. NYD needs more games moved back into NYD, not less.

El Jeffe knows what he is talking about. I am pretty sure he speaks Spainish. I am pretty sure "El Jeffe" is Spainish, too.

I would have been okay seeing the purple faced Brian Kelley as Oompa Loompa head on a stick.

|1 year 19 weeks ago||Footballguys.com||
Easily the best fantasy site and worth paying for. You still need to decide for yourself who you want to start, but the do give you a lot of information to use for that decision. Also, the do a good job of getting you that last minute injury information or late scratch.

|1 year 20 weeks ago||Actually...||
The Jags blog Big Cat Country said yesterday that Monday and Wednesday were outstanding practices for Denard. They were off Tuesday. So I think the ball security issue is being dragged out and overscrutinized based on a few early practices. The reviews on his recent practices are very strong. Taking him off of punt returns is not really a big deal.

Well done, Egon.

He was a Kenyon College grad. So, at least not a Buckeye.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Ha ha!||
Ha! You came here hoping to get a glimpse at how small we feel and instead we got to see how small you are. Good luck at life.

At this point, I'm so stoked I that thought about making a navy t-shirt with the word MITCHIGAN in maize for Monday. But I stink at that sort of thing.

I am also a Kenyon/UM grad. Root for UM always, but wish Coach Smart great success.

Depends which side of the Rockies he is on.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Common courtesy||
That has nothing to do with political correctness. It is common courtesy, which there is not enough of. Nickelback was a fan/patron of the beer and wanted to feature Morse's product. Rather than politely decline, Morse used it as an opportunity to crap on one of his own patrons/fans so he could seem cool and above it all. It's just a lousy way to act toward someone who appreciates your beer. He could have said no without publicly dumping on them in the process.

Well, he's right about "Frisco". People out here in the Bay Area hate that phrase.
