Did The Sweater Vest Fool You?? Yes Jim Tressel Plays The Game Too.


Let’s begin…

    First off, I think Jim Tressel knew that his players broke the rules, and I think he lied hoping that the issue would go away. Once the issue came to light he owned up to what he did, because he had nowhere else to turn. With that being said, is anyone surprised? This is college sports. It’s a system based off the exploitation of individuals that are denied the opportunity to profit off of their skills (If I read that too you and asked you to guess the profession. You would probably say black market prostitution or AAU basketball). Big time college sports are dirty, and when you’re in a dirty industry it’s hard to be clean while being successful. Just ask Randy Shannon of the University of Miami what a clean program gets you (Gets you fired in case you’re wondering).

Ohio State publicly reprimanded Jim Tressel yesterday in a press conference. They suspended him for 2 games and docked him $250,000. Now I think this is hypocritical. Look no further than the players that he covered up for. They got a five game suspension, and Tressel only got two? At the same time isn’t it also hypocritical that Terrell Pryor and the tattoo five got to play? Was it hypocritical that Cam Newton got to play last season? And while we’re at it lets sprinkle a little Reggie Bush scandal in here? The entire scope of college sports is hypocritical. So, can we please stop the farce that is, “College Student Athletes” and start paying the players.

There is too much money involved college sports to call it amateur athletics. Even Don King thinks college sports are immoral. There needs to be a union to represent the players. I propose the idea of giving players the option of a scholarship or cash (I’m talking straight cash homie). The amount of money would be collectively bargained through the union. If players opt for the cash, then they would forfeit the right to all amenities normally supplied by the university including tuition, books, and housing (I’m talking about being an adult homie).

Until changes are made these are the rules. Jim Tressel violated the rules, and should be punished. You can suspend him and his sweater vest for the entire season, but it’s not going to fix the problem. You have to end this idea of amateur athletics, and start compensating players. Now excuse me I have to wire some money to Thad Matta.

Kortney Shane’s College Football Preview: Week 8


The Last Two Undefeated SEC Teams Will Battle This Weekend

Let’s begin…

    The AP Ranked #1 team went down this weekend. The Ohio State Buckeyes were beaten by The Wisconsin Badgers (feel free to substitute “dominated” for the word beaten). That was the kind of game where one team took the upper hand early and held on for the win. I don’t think The Badgers are a better team, but they were last Saturday.

    After this weekend I don’t know who the best in anything is. I don’t know the best team or the best quarterback. Then I looked at Boise State. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Boise State has the best quarterback in college football, in Kellen Moore. I don’t think they have the best team, but I think they will play in the National Championship. Eventually I think the best team will rise to the top. So, just sit back, try not to get work up about the BCS, and watch the games.

    My game of the week is LSU v. Auburn

Breakdown

    The LSU Tigers v. The Auburn Tigers will be a match between the only unbeaten teams left in the SEC. Let me start with LSU, the most underrated, undefeated team in college football. Everyone wants to fire Les Miles because of his coaching, and sometimes I think he’s actually trying to lose games. However, the guy just keeps on winning. This year LSU has Patrick Peterson, the most exciting player in college football this year. If you have heard about him, YouTube him now, I’ll wait… On the other side of the field is the Auburn Tigers. At quarterback they have what many people think is the leader in the Heisman Trophy race, in Cameron Newton. Newton was nothing short of spectacular in Auburn’s win over Arkansas last week. Cam Newton accounted for 4 touchdowns last week, in what was the highest scoring game in the history of the SEC. Although Newton ran for 3 touchdowns and 188 yards, I do think he will hold up physically because of his size (Unlike Denard Robinson who was injured again this weekend. I think I had that right). So, make no mistake about it. Cam Newtown is the real deal. I think that Auburn is good enough to stay unbeaten at home, but if this game is close LSU will win. As much as I want to straddle the fence, I will predict a close game.

LSU wins 26 – 24

Kortney Shane’s College Football Preview: Week 6


Michigan State Will Go Into The Big House, But Will They Will?

Let’s begin…

    Raise your hand if you’re pissed off about Boise State dropping to #4 in the polls. Now keep your hand up if you’re surprised. This is the way the BCS works. The same system that gives Boise State hope of playing in National Championship must also reward Oregon for looking like a more impressive team. I’m not going to rant on this topic, because the BCS has already written Boise State a letter (see here).

    I was impressed with Oregon this weekend as was everyone else. Them boys can score my friend. I think if a team wants to beat them, they must make them throw the ball. That quarterback has a raggedy arm, and you must make him use it. If you don’t, get used to seeing the back of LaMichael James‘ jersey.

    The whole Denard Robinson spectacle has reached a frenzied level. Everyone has given this guy the Heisman after 5 games. Will he win it…I don’t know. I do know that he hasn’t played a good team yet, and Michigan‘s schedule picks up this week. Michigan State will be coming to town, and the Wolverines will be tested.

Breakdown

    Denard Robinson is the most captivating college football player since Reggie Bush. Dude can flat out play my friend. This week the Michigan Wolverines will be matching up with the Michigan State Spartans. The Spartans are a good team that dominated Wisconsin last week. Their defense made John Clay look average. So, I think their defense can at least compete with Robinson. At the same time…that’s Denard Robinson. The Michigan Wolverines have home field advantage, and the previously mentioned Robison. That’s it! I’m not buying into the hype. Michigan isn’t a good football team. You may say, “Kortney their 5-0.” Well last year they were 4-0, and then they played Michigan State. So I think the Spartan will go into the BIG House, and beat the Wolverines.

Michigan State wins, 30 – 24

“Boise State, Welcome To The BCS”


Let’s begin…

Boise State Is Now Ranked Fourth In The Nation. Could This Be The Beginning Of Their Free Fall?

Dear Boise State,

We regret to inform you that through no fault of your own you will be downgraded from the third to the fourth ranked team in the nation. It’s not something we wanted to do, but our hand was forced. I wish we would have been able to warn you, but you should have seen it coming. You knew you were playing in a terrible conference. So, it was only a matter a time before a team with a better schedule leaped over you in the rankings. By now you know that team is the Oregon. Now we don’t know if they’re better than you, but we have to use or best guess. And for now they’re better than you.

It’s a long season so things change. Our only advice is to win all your games, and hope the teams above you lose. I know the system is flawed, but it’s the way we make the most money. Please send our reguard to the groin we kicked you in.

Ps. we will have a spot waiting for you in the Fiesta bowl…if you win all your games.

Sincerely Yours

The BCS
