Why, the comma in the headline?
|1 day 6 hours ago||I don't understand what your||
I don't understand what your issue is here. The headline is completely accurate. Regardless of how the topic was brought up, Jalen here is calling on Chris to apologize, and in no uncertain terms:
I don't see a lot of wiggle room there.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Yeah, they publicly invited||
Yeah, they publicly invited him to sit with them. I'm sure he knew where they were.
|1 day 17 hours ago||It's complicated. Many high||
It's complicated. Many high schools on reservations themselves use the "Redskins" nickname. It seems to be a word that can be offensive but may not always be so.
|1 day 17 hours ago||The franchises are currently||
The franchises are currently paying taxes. It's the league office that isn't.
|1 day 17 hours ago||I'm not as emotionally worked||
I'm not as emotionally worked up by this story as I was a few years ago. The return of the program to prominence has helped the healing, as 1993 is no longer our last Final Four. Still, I'd like to see them patch things up.

MLB gave up tax-exempt status a few years ago.
IIRC, this status only applies to the league office and not the individual franchises themselves.

The Detroit News also has an article on him:

Didn't we fake a punt against Va Tech in the Sugar Bowl?
|2 days 8 hours ago||I maintain that Iowa is going||
I maintain that Iowa is going to miss Ferentz when he's finally gone. Yeah he's boring and his teams always start slowly - but they improve as the year goes on, too.
|2 days 15 hours ago||And not only that, but he||
And not only that, but he scored 19 points that night, draining six threes. He led us on and off the court.

I don't think it's too likely that a guy's going to get two PF by accident in a game. One, maybe.
|3 days 7 hours ago||Just a note: in the second||
Just a note: in the second paragraph, when he starts talking about Utah, it says "their" when it should be "they're".
|3 days 7 hours ago||That was awesome.. Football||
That was awesome.. Football needs more "random fake dead guy" plays.
|3 days 8 hours ago||On this topic, college||
On this topic, college football should have a "two personal fouls = automatic ejection" rule as well.
|3 days 8 hours ago||Oregon has pretty much moved||
Oregon has pretty much moved in that direction as well. Marcus Mariota has great wheels but he only carries it a handful of times a game (20 total rushes in 3 games, including sacks).

Big John Falk was forced out?
Why would they do that?
|3 days 14 hours ago||There are always issues when||
There are always issues when you bring in an outsider. Not everyone liked Beilein at first, either (as hard as that is to believe). For example, Daniel Horton badmouthed him.
But if you win, all that goes away.
|3 days 15 hours ago||Speaking of the "We'll never||
Speaking of the "We'll never have an offense like this again" part, to me the best offense we ever had was what we ran in the 2008 Capital bowl against Florida. I loved that offense - a passing spread that also made ample use of Hart out of the backfield - but we only got it for one game.
The RichRod offense is okay, but it seems destined to get his QB physically destroyed every season.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Utah was considered a decent||
Utah was considered a decent team even before the season, though. The game was billed as a coinflip and when we lost, people weren't that disppointed. It was when the losses kept piling up that people got frustrated.
I've always thought that that Utah game was one of the only times the '08 team played to its potential. We were supposed to have a strong defense that year and it played well that day, but later on the defensive staff mutinied against Shafer and the players seemed to stop buying in.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Let's keep in mind, 4th and 6||
Let's keep in mind, 4th and 6 is not a very high-percentage play. Big difference between that and 4th and 1 (which is converted most of the time).
4th and 6 at the 37 is just a crappy position to be in. There's not an awesome choice to be made there.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Hmm, I thought Carr was||
Hmm, I thought Carr was bigger than that - I think he was three bills.
|3 days 16 hours ago||He scored a TD once. I don't||
He scored a TD once. I don't remember the game, but he definitely got one.
The fumble in the '96 Purdue game wasn't returned, but it killed our best TD chance that day.

This was always the responsibilty of the year's Superfan. There still is a Superfan, right?
|3 days 17 hours ago||I didn't attend the Miami||
I didn't attend the Miami game, but the mini-band was in my section for App St.
As for the cowbell, that was always a student thing. Who is the current Superfan? He/she should be bringing the cowbell.
|3 days 17 hours ago||Wow, college football really||
Wow, college football really has opened up offensively when there are 60 teams putting up over 436 ypg.
|3 days 18 hours ago||The issue is that Donovan, in||
The issue is that Donovan, in this role, gets to coach some HS players, some of them uncomiitted. It gives him a direct advantage in recruiting. Coach K's advantage is more a secondary, "Yeah I know LeBron" kind of thing.
I don't think it's that hard to find an under-19 coach. It's basically an all-star team and the stakes aren't that high (who's ever watched the u-19 team play?).
|3 days 18 hours ago||The author focuses on Coach||
The author focuses on Coach K, but I'm actually more bothered by Billy Donovan getting to coach the under-19 team, which seems like a much greater conflict of interest.

Yeah, I don't remember it either.
