    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Never been a Gee fan, though. I thought Dan Wetzel summed it up well in an article yesterday:

    It would be easy for the rest of the country to brush of old E. Gordon as just a guy in Ohio with a lack of self-awareness who either entertains them or infuriates them or is just worth ignoring. How much is your life influenced by some far-off school president?

    The problem is he's spent his career moonlighting as one of the chief busybodies and reformers of the NCAA. ...

    E. Gordon Gee is the NCAA: tone deaf, clumsy, situationally arrogant and obsessed with bringing in more and more money (and making sure Delany, or anyone else, doesn't then get their paws on it).

    Looks like MSU will be getting a very special letter from the NCAA tomorrow morning.

    I wonder if big ten fans see the actual infractions and the penalties and wonder what the heck is going on here?

    I think the NCAA basically just told MSU to start paying players because the penalty handed out is pretty light IMHO.

    There is no Camelot in college concerning this kind of story:

    Four vandy football players have been suspended and this is a developing story.

    I don't know about any of these anymore. Headlines appear everyone is shocked, 2 months later the story changes. Ohio State had something like this several months back.I think it ended up with someone quietly leaving school.

    Allegedly, the events that occurred at Vandetbilt mostly played out in front of security cameras, so we will likely have a fairly clear idea of what went down if it came to a physical level. Also allegedly, this incident involves 3 freshmen who all redshirted this past year and one incoming freshman.

    Jojo--We already knew it wasn't Camelot. In Franklin's first season, a walk-on was involved in a burglary, this past spring, two kids who had been on the team got into an altercation outside a bar and one was allegedly stabbed, and a starting DT was suspended for team rule and academic violations.

    Everybody at Vandy loves the 9-4. But this crap will put Franklin on the hot seat post haste. I sure as hell hope it does. And I love the guy. But this will not do.
    When all is said and done more is said than done.

    Man, other than Auburn SEC fans apparently don't care much for footbal. They all must go to the games for the marching band.

    Apparently a higher percentage of Auburn fans do more than tailgate.

    Two A&M players arrested for assault-both are listed as starters coming out of spring practice.

    Vegas odds are 1500:1 that Sumlin actually doles out a penalty that affects the Aggies on the field.
