There's no such thing as "normal" when it comes to sexuality. Everyone's unique. So should we really all broadcast what's unique about our individual sexualities?
I just find the whole thing tiresome at this point. I don't understand why people in our culture are so obsessed with what other people do in bed and who they do it with. Maybe *they* should come out of the closet for their quasi-voyeuristic tendencies.

I have to think there would be absolute anarchy on both campuses if they split up. I'm betting Duke and UNC are a package deal.... As for the B1G possibly preferring UVA to Duke, I have no idea what UVA brings that Duke doesn't. Let's be honest they're both mediocre football schools. Both have good lacrosse... I don't follow it closely but Duke probably has an edge. Duke is a phenomenal basketball school and has better academics. What does UVA give? A couple extra TV sets in that key Charlottesville market?? Please....
If Duke and UNC are split up I will shit myself. I really just can't see it happening though. If Delaney wants UVA over Duke he is certifiably insane.

Let's not kid ourselves... This is a *huge* get.
Someone posted earlier (in fact, was it you?) that this is the first time in over a decade that a 5* RB from the south has gone to a school in the north. Green is a top-10 recruit, but not just that, seems like a really high-character kid and a hard worker, someone that has the potential to really set the tone for other players and be a leader. I would not be surprised at all if Green is a captain down the road. (Yes, yes, I know, way too early but if it could be said at this point that any player has this kind of potential, it's Green.)
Furthermore, with this commitment, Hoke finally closed an elite prospect near signing day, and shook the "can't get elite skill position players" monkey off his back.
The positive effects this has for the program cannot be overstated. Green's commiment could really end up being something that makes the difference in bringing Michigan back to national elite status.
Given all that, and how invested a college football coach is in what he does, I have no problem at all with Hoke crying.
(Furthermore this happened 24 hours after another recruit's dad said the Big 10 should do things more like the SEC.... Then Hoke lands a top 10 player over 2 SEC schools. That's a huge vindication for how Hoke does things vs. how they do it in the south.)

So sketch. Not only did he do this off camera and with his lawyer there, but Schapp said he looked very comfortable... Look at the photographs. They say otherwise... He's hunched over playing with water bottles in one pic (a very defensive and uncomfortable, fidgety posture) and covering his mouth with his hand in another pic (often a pretty obvious tell that someone is lying).
So yeah, the interview was off-camera, but we're totally supposed to take Schapp's word for it that Te'o looked comfortable and relaxed, when what little visual information (the photographs) that we do have say the exact opposite.
Furthermore, what he said tonight contradicts things that were said in the ND press conference on Wed.
Wed: Swarbrick says Te'o came to him saying he got hoaxed on Dec. 26.
Today: Te'o says he wasn't convinced he was hoaxed until 2 days ago.
Further, in the interview today Te'o admitted to lying to his dad about meeting Kekua.
So at this point, we do know for sure that Te'o is a flat out liar. Even in the muddy waters of this story, that much is clear at this point. Whether he was in on the hoax: who knows and I don't think so. (Although where is the receipt for the whtie roses and the phone records? He could easily show these to corroborate his side of the story and hasn't.) But at this point what we can say for sure is the guy is a liar and has no credibility.

Ok something I just thought of....
I was thinking Te'o was in on it.
BUT... If he was, why would he even go to Swarbrick about the phone call? Swarbrick didn't call Te'o in, Te'o approached him.
At that point the hoax had been a success.... If Te'o was in on it, what's the play, by going to Swarbrick at that point? If Te'o was in on it, he had absolutely nothing to gain by going to Swarbrick....
Unless... Either Te'o caught wind of the Deadpsin story developing (I don't know how) and went to Swarbrick as pre-emptive cover, or, Swarbrick caught wind of the deadspin story and called Te'o in and changed the narrative in the press conference saying that Te'o came to him.
One thing I do know is either way, Te'o comes out of this looking awful. He is either immensely, immensely naive, or a manipulator of sociopathic proportions. And if there was a cover-up and he was in on it, who else knew? His family? Kelly? Swarbrick? If any/all of them caught wind of what was going on, they certainly have motive to participate in a cover up.
This whole thing is just so mind-blowing. So much to think about and I'm a sucker for a good mystery.
In any case, there's a special edition of Catfish in Te'o's future, since he either got Catfished or IS a Catfish.

The part about seeing her grave is actually a great point. It's small details like this that often can lead to solving mysteries, and the fact that he never visited her grave leads me to believe Teo was in on it.
He called her the love of his life. He didn't go to the funeral because it was her wish for him not to miss any games.... ok, I can buy that. But if she was THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE, how is it he still had't visited her grave more than 3 months after her death?
Yes "she" lived in Cali and Teo was a student athlete in the middle of football season.... Still there has to have been a time he could've gone out there, right?
For one, ND played at USC, I find it really hard to believe that if he wanted to go out there a day early to visit his late girlfriend's grave, that the ND AD wouldn't have moved heaven and earth to accomodate him in that. So, why wouldn't he have done that?

Interesting point about this being one of the better openings in the NFL this year if Schwartz is fired.
I wonder if Chip Kelly is a possibility. That'd be pretty random but stranger things have happened, and if nothing else it'd be an interesting ride with him at the helm. I have a feeling it'd be one of those things that'd either go really well or really terribly (aka, not any worse than the rest of our lifetime), so really there's only potential upside.
The only question is whether our offensive personnel would fit his system, but there's certainly a lot of talent for him to work with on offense.

Brandon should be on the hot seat, plain and simple.
There are some things he does really well, but that does not justify keeping him around when he is whoring out central aspects of our tradidion for those Adida$ uniformz dollar$.
It's like RR. He did one thing really well, but seriously (and continually) fucked up another thing, and eventually he had to go. Same thing applies to Brandon. This shit is getting ridiculous.

Not a surprise though, really.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||I thought the same thing||
I thought the same thing about too much Klosterman.
My reactions to him went from, at first, "Why is he even in this?" to, "Ok, I get it. Bo was a cultural icon that transcended sports and having Klosterman here isn't so bad," to, "Wow this guy is trying to turn Bo into something that feels really forced and contrived." That point was really cemented in the part at the end where he tried to frame Bo as an "anti-authoritarian" figure because Bo did the non-conformist thing of excelling at multiple things... that conclusion and his rationale was just really a stretch.
Overall great documentary though. I have a vague memory of Bo but was still pretty young when he was around so didn't know as much as what the documentary said.... all the personal stuff was really cool, like the stuff about his relationship with his mom, and just hearing him speak, how soft-spoken and well-grounded he is, and just how really he's kind of a normal guy, into hunting, his man cave, etc. He just seems like a very down-to-earth, genuinely good, kind, likable person.

I thought it was really good.... other than the ocassional cheesy cartoon interludes (eh, guess they had some amusement value....) and too much Chuck Klosterman (why was he included??) it was a really good 30 for 30. Bo's a cool dude. I loved the stuff about his personal life and how he's a hunter, it was interesting.

|1 year 19 weeks ago||Duke and UNC aren't redundant||
Duke and UNC aren't redundant from a "new markets" perspective.
The majority of North Carolinians are UNC (or NC State) fans and hate Duke.
Duke's fans and alums are spread out all over, mainly on the East Coast for alums, everywhere for fans. UNC also has a lot of fans outside the state of NC.
So the Big Ten would actually be getting a lot of bang for their buck with Duke and UNC as far as the market perspective and the two wouldn't be redundant at all even though they're 8 miles apart.
The con, of course is that neither school is good at football.
The pros are basketball (obvs. Adding Duke and UNC would make the Big Ten the best basketball conference by far.), other sports like lacrosse, and academics.

Exactly. The SEC run has already been so long it's like, what difference is one more year going to make?
Bama winning will almost be anti-climactic because it's just a repetition of the story-line of the past several years' championship games.
One thing the media loves is shiny new stories. If ND wins we will be hearing about it CONSTANTLY, for a very long time.
In conclusion, Roll Tide.

I'd rather have an 11 team Big Ten sans championship game where our actual best team goes to the Rose.
Also this part:
"Michigan at High Point Solutions Stadium to play Rutgers."
made me throw up in my mouth a little. :(
College football as we've known it is on its death bed, and with Media and Money the determining factors in the direction of the game, there's no going back, it's over, it's only a matter of time now.

Do people really think Hoke would say anything other than what he said?
I mean, seriously, do people think Hoke is going to get up there in a press conference and be like, "Oh he'es probably not going to get it." or "How the hell should I know?"
Given the nature of press conference communications under Hoke I just don't take anything he says in a presser too seriously.

Fuck this shit.
Before, I never would've wanted to change the conference name.
Now, I think it must be changed.
This new monstrosity is no longer the Big 10, it's something completely different, way worse, and totally fucked up.
The Big 10 is dead, they should at least acknowledge that and not pretend that it isn't, by giving the conference a new name.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||This is very true and what||
This is very true and what kinda bothers me about this board is that this kind of "board orthodoxy" gets enforced in the moderation.
For example a couple weeks ago there was a thread saying Gardner should be the starter even if Denard was healthy.
That thread was locked.
I did not agree with that opinion and still don't. I wouldn't have participated in the discussion had the thread remained unlocked, but why shouldn't other people have been allowed to discuss it if they want to?
Yes, yes, this is a privately owned site, I get that, but, the modding here is downright draconian at times when there are relevant topcs that aren't even allowed to be on the table for discussion.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||You're right. But I think the||
But I think the reason people have a problem with it here more than other places is because the people on this board fancy this place to be somewhere that rational thought and open discourse prevails. Often it is but in instances where that turns out not to be the case it smacks of hypocrisy and that's I think what irritates people.
*awaits crucifixion* :P

I absolutely hate this.
Rutgers? Maryland? Are you kidding me? Do. Not. Want.
The article I just read on ESPN talks about Rutgers "offering up the New York market," a meme that gets repeated so tirelessly when Rutgers is mentioend in B1G expansion speculation that it's apparently become fact-y enough for actual media outlets to state it as if it's real.
Guess what? NO ONE, and I mean no one in NYC gives a fuck about Rutgers.
Newsflash: Rutgers isn't even in the same state, it's in Jersey which may as well be on a different planet than NYC.
Saying Rutgers will offer up the NY market is akin to saying Arizona St. would offer up the LA market. Vague geographic proximity does not equal "offering up" a market.
Rutgers (and Maryland) in the B1G is absolutely retarded, unless one thinks that watering down our product and making it less of an actual "conference" is a worthwhile trade-off for the illusion of gaining a market.
That's the reality of what's going on here. Ruining the conference in exchange for smoke and mirrors.

Re. those things not flying at U of M I think you're right and it's super disturbing that flew at ND. U of M is a secular institution. It seems like a religious institution would hold themselves to the same level of morality, if not a higher one.
Not trying to stir up religious discussion or anything but that's just the truth.
Stuff like that is immoral no matter where it happens but the fact that it happened at ND also makes it uber-hypocritical.

He's getting his degree from Michigan though, and at the end of the day that's what really matters. He probably wasn't going to the NFL so he now has a great degree from a great school. Congrats on that, Ricardo. Things didn't turn out like many of us envisioned, but at the end of the day he has a ton to be proud of with finishing his degree in 3 years.

Actually, what was said in the postgame presser was that Bellomy had a "situation."
A reporter followed up and asked Hoke what Bellomy's "situation" was and he said he didn't want to talk about it.
The fact that he could've simply dismissed it just as easily by saying Bellomy was injure and had a "boo boo," yet he didn't do that, kind of leads me to believe it wasn't injury related.
