The @CollegeGameday handle tweeted out a picture of the MSU motivational board in the locker room yesterday and surprise, their mentality in life still hasn't changed...

"Approach the challenges of every day – in all phases of your life – with a fist fight mentality!"

Isn't that what's gotten so many of their players in jail to this point? When in doubt, fist fight.

Ok, first off, this is not a post about politics, so slow your roll. It is, however, a sentiment that I have had for a long time about the beloved coach of the Michigan State Agricultural College's Prison Deferrment Program. The local Michigan media as well as many national pundits, consider Tom Izzo an icon and a man of great integrity. The last coach to be thought of with such blind disregard used to coach the pro football team in Columbus. After watching last nights presser where this "leader of men" vomited all over the press corps with foul language and a lack if respect for the team that just beat him, I became enraged. His first 2 sentences took all credit away from Beilein and the boys when he said that his team "gave" Michigan a 10 point lead. Really? I seem to remember your team actually taking shots after each subsequent Michigan score. It just reminded me of what a pompous and arrogant prick he really is. It also reminded me of the first time I ever met him. He was on a "speaking tour" about 8 years ago and he paid a visit to my employer, Coca Cola. His motivational methods were absolutely embarrassing. After listening to this fraud curse and swear at a room of executives and sales professionals for 35 minutes, it occurred to me that this man had as much integrity as any other blowhard phony with a Napoleon complex and something to prove. I'm curious to know if anyone else had any insight into the subject? It will not surprise me when he goes down in flames and scandal. The only question will be if it happens before Thad Motta.

Plaxico Burress has learned that prison has benefits. He discovered that he enjoys learning through reading.

"It was one of those deals that kind of grew on me," Burress told Newsday. "Ever since I went to prison and in my spare time, I try to read as much as I can. Having a lot of time, I found something that became something I love to do. And that's gather information through reading, expanding my knowledge. I never would have known that if I didn't go through what I went through."

"Reading never would have been on my radar," he told Newsday. "Now my wife comes into the room at night and I'm reading my book, she just starts laughing. It's something that gives me peace."

Glad we didn't end up with this kid, he got arrested over the weekend for contempt of court-not answering summons.

Also looks like he's put on a little weight. Do you think a greyshirt is in order? Or a medical schoarship? Maybe he'll just get cut all together.
