Shea is a preseason Heisman candidate.  Therefore, he has to start.  Listen to the smart people behind their keyboards.

Actually, it's "Fuck Penn State" 

"To Hell with Notre Dame" is the correct phrase.

Thomas Rawls "never got an opportunity" either.

Maybe Drake can follow his example and get paid in Sundays.

Agree.  A year after the new coach is in place, the team will carry Urban on their shoulders parading him around the field.  Same as the last coach, minus the sweater vest.

Congrats!  My "baby" turns 13 today.  Yours will be a teenager before you know it.

If that was allowed, the player should announce that prior to the draft.  Just so that the NBA teams to spin too much effort on a player they won't be able to draft and develop.

I suspect there aren't any rednecks on the board.

Down here in the south, they pour gas on both the entrance and exit and strike the match.  One beer later, repeat.

The fact that Shelley is employed by the university and didn't (allegedly) tell any of her superiors could do damage to the university independently of what Urban didn't report.  Double the trouble of both are found in the wrong.

They finally took down the Twister attraction at Universal Studios.  Bill Paxton (may he rest in peace) always looked like he was twisted up when standing. Made me hurt just to watch his video at Universal

Dude.  I did read the article. 

The "tl;dr" part was a straight cut-and-paste.  ESPN paid McMurphy not to publish on their website.  They gave him money and chose to keep the news off their website, thus taking a pass on reporting it.

Had they used the money to buy the story and publish it on their website, they would be in the "first to report" camp.

I found this article this morning (it's "old" so SIAP): https://deadspin.com/how-espn-ended-up-paying-brett-mcmurphy-to-post-the-yea-1828089258 

tl;dr: "Brett McMurphy, who is about as plugged in as any college football reporter can be, was always going to scoop ESPN on the Urban Meyer-Zach Smith story. But that the Worldwide Leader paid him to not publish the scoop on their own website, well, that’s the result of a very particular kind of corporate derangement."

In the day and age of "first to report", not sure why ESPN took a pass on this bombshell.  Although I'm not surprised.

08/06/2018 - 10:27pm Meyer is guilty in the court…

Meyer is guilty in the court of public opinion because of all the evidence we see.  That’s waaaaay different than blindly supporting him because he’s good at the footballs where players don’t play school.

Zack had an alcohol problem.  This might be the "personal problem" referenced.

My college roommate was in a band and played at the local clubs back in the day.  He used to complain about Ted Nugent because he (Ted) could on play using the A chord.

Tressel was fired for less.  I don't think Urban stays on and think Gene Smith will "retire".

I am actually surprised when I hear people get their "news" from shows on Comedy Central or fall for "news" on Facebook.  My 12 year old showed me a site called Fake News Generator.  He created a news report that Alexander Hamilton was going to run in 2020.  It was funny, but some subset of humanity would believe it as it looked real.

We were at the beach last week, vacationing along the Atlantic Ocean.  I looked out to the horizon and it looked flat.  Just saying, you guys should listen to these NBA stars.  They may be right.

Great old-school highlights.  Got some Keith Jackson, Barry Alvarez, Joe Tiller, and a scrawny QB with #10 on his back!  Back in the day before their were high def TV's and a rewind button on the remote.

Vacation for me and the family, too.  We are at the beach south of Savannah, GA.  Need to check in for work and this give me an excuse to check in here!  

Go Blue!

That alone should cover for most of the other wrong doings.

I'm in an area that has both AT&T and Comcast into the homes.  As Comcast's speeds got faster, AT&T started building out their fiber to offer faster speeds than their 3x1 DSL.

I think this would be a good thing if more households had two carriers actually competing to deliver services.  From this post and past posts, most of the comments tell me that a single provider is more common.

July is halfway over.  Fall camp starts soon and will get us through a few weeks (albeit in a submarine) with some football info to chew on. Kick-off will be right after that.

It will be here before you know it!

Is there a gif for "too lazy to load a picture in this new blog"?  Posting straight from the Internet was much easier.

Great news, except that I no longer get BTN from my cable provider because I live out of BTN footprint.
