Sheesh. These kids and their baggy pants. When will it ever end? It ended for University of New Mexico football player Deshon Marman. Albuquerque’s KRQE reports that Marman was boarding a U.S. Airways flight Wednesday at San Francisco International Airport when an airline employee asked him to pull up his pants, “because she said, they were ‘below his butt and his boxer shorts were showing.’” Next thing you know, he was asked to leave the plane. Next thing you know, he was arrested and cited for trespassing. A US Airways spokesperson said the airline’s dress code forbids “indecent exposure or inappropriate” attire. Who was that spokesperson? David Stern?
As the down time of college athletics enters its early stages, an interesting situation is brewing at the University of Miami. Yes, the self monikered “U”. Seems as if the U isn’t really a destination anymore, at least not for coaches. Or maybe athletic directors. And based on these decisions, maybe someday soon not even the talent they hope to recruit. Let’s catch up on the train wreck the last 4 months have been at the U Read More »
If you thought the lunacy of college football’s “National Signing Day” was behind you, we’d like to introduce you to DeMarcus Smith. Smith is a highly touted 4 star quarterback prospect out of Louisville’s Senaca High School. He’s made some curious choices of late, and in the process he has sparked an interesting debate. Let us explain… Read More »
The Jim Tressel saga took an interesting turn today, with the embattled OSU coach perhaps putting an even bigger stain on his pristine sweater vest. For those unaware, a quick recap is in order:
In December, 5 Buckeye players were suspended 5 games apiece for receiving improper benefits. The players admitted they sold rings, trophies, and other memorabilia in exchange for money, and some free ink from a local tattoo shop. At the time Coach Tressel stood by his players, but insisted that he had no knowledge of the situation. However when OSU was planning its appeal of the suspensions in March it discovered evidence that Tressel was indeed made aware of the issue as far back as April via an email he received informing him of the players activities. Of course Tressel failed to inform anybody at OSU of the situation, which causes him to come off looking a little smarmy. He gave some cockamamie excuse and OSU gave him a 2 game suspension. Tressel then played the high and mighty card and self-increased the penalty to 5 games in order to match his players. End of story right?

Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Ruh roh Reorge! Trouble! Oh we got trouble. Right here in Gainesville, Florida. With a capital “T” that rhymes with “B” and that stands for Brandon James. That’s right folks, senior receiver/return specialist Brandon James won’t be able to play in the Sugar Bowl against Cincinnati after having surgery on his foot. That’s gotta hurt. James is the all-time Southeastern Conference leader with 4,089 total return yards. James leads the Gators in all-purpose yards. Like Sandy Olsson always says, “The power you’re supplyin’, it’s electrifyin’.” Well sports fans, the light have gone out in Gatortown. Few may realize the impact James has on this Florida team. I am not one of those few. This just may be the difference maker.

On Saturday night, Mark Ingram became the first Alabama player to win the Heisman in the closest vote in the 75 years the award has been handed out to college’s best player. A close second was Toby Gerhart, who had only 5 less first place votes and only 28 points less than Ingram. Texas’ Colt McCoy finished just behind Gerhart and Ingram in third place. Now that the dust has settled and the voters have spoken, the five players divert their attention to their respective upcoming bowl games. Of the five finalists, which will have the greatest impact on their team’s bowl game? Let’s examine the match-ups. Read More »
