RICK REILLY: OBAMA’S ONLY CHANCE OF REELECTION IS TO PASS COLLEGE PLAYOFF SYSTEM

January 6, 2011

Apparently, Rick Reilly knows as little about politics as he does about sports. The despised former S.I. and now ESPN writer/megadouche writes about the college football BCS system and the president today.

Reilly contends the ONLY way for Barack Obama to be reelected president in 2012 is to come up with a college football playoff system.

WHAT KIND OF EGOMANIAC POSTS A PICTURE OF HIMSELF STANDING NEXT TO THE PRESIDENT IN A PHOTO OP FOR AN ARTICLE HE WRITES? ANSWER: RICK REILLY

TATTOOGATE REVEALS NEW STRATEGY FOR NCAA RULE BREAKERS: LIE & DENY

December 25, 2010

SEC PLAYERS GET $180,000 AND THEY GO TO THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP, TERRELLE PRYOR GETS THIS TAT AND HE MISSES NEXT YEAR’S AKRON AND TOLEDO GAMES

Whether you come down on the side of the NCAA or the suspended Ohio State players, the “Tattoogate” scandal shows the complete corruption and hypocrisy on both sides.

In addition to exchanging various Ohio State awards and memorabilia for tattoos, several star players, including quarterback Terrelle Pryor, also received money. Those players have to pay back the money they received for selling their uniforms, awards, trophies etc. and miss the first five games of next season. Not wanting to turn one of their BCS games into a travesty, the NCAA IS going to let everyone play in the upcoming Sugar Bowl.

The NCAA’s latest ruling is once again so idiotic and convoluted that ESPN’s premier college football columnist Pat Forde simply advises every guilty, cheating college football player from here on out to simply utter the phrase, “I didn’t know.” Viola! instant deniability.

Irony: exchanging your college football “Good Citizenship Award” for cash and tats.

MARK CUBAN: HERO

December 16, 2010

If you were a billionaire sports fan how would you spend your money?

If you’re Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, the answer is put up $500 million to abolish the BCS and establish a playoff system for college football.

Cuban told ESPN that he is seriously considering using his money to institute a college football playoff. Cuban’s plan is to put a system in place that is a hybrid of the 16-team plan devised by Yahoo! Sports columnist Dan Wetzel in his book “Death to the BCS.”

Under Cuban’s plan, higher ranked teams would host playoff games. That, he says, would maintain the importance of the college football regular season. Cuban also says there would still be bowl games.

Cuban has failed in a couple of attempts to buy a Major League Baseball team (the Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers.) Cuban says he may now focus his attention on his college football plan “ass opposed to” buying a baseball team.

DRUNK MICHIGAN RUNNING BACK BLOWS A .30

December 7, 2010

KEVIN GRADY


Former University of Michigan running back Kevin Grady was arrested for his second DUI Saturday after Grand Rapids police found him passed out behind the wheel of his GMC Yukon Denali. Worse, Grady’s BAC was reported to be .30, nearly four times the legal limit. This qualifies Grady to be prosecuted under the state of Michigan’s new “Super Drunk” law.

IS BILL MCCARTNEY A RACIST AS WELL AS A HOMOPHOBE?

December 4, 2010

JON EMBREE

Currently, 3 of 119 Division 1 coaches in college football are black. That’s apparently one too many for Bill McCartney.

McCartney is the former coach at the University of Colorado. He won a National Championship at the school back in 1990. McCartney had actively lobbied for the vacant CU coaching job which became open after Dan Hawkins was fired.

Friday, McCartney leaked to the media that Washington Redskins tight ends coach Jon Embree was going to be named Colorado’s next head coach. This was before any announcement by CU, causing the school to have to deny the report. McCartney didn’t stop there. McCartney further opined that Embree was only offered the job because he’s black. Said McCartney, “It was about setting the table for a black man to come in.”

Despite a thin coaching resume, Embree is a Colorado graduate. The school has been adament that it wants to bring in a CUalum as coach. There was a report earlier in the week that some 20 CU faculty members had signed a letter against McCartney possibly being re-hired by Colorado based on his past anti-gay statements.

RICHROD GETS MAN CARD REVOKED

December 4, 2010

 

RICH RODRIGUEZ

This is more embarrassing than coaching the Michigan football team to a record and getting your ass kicked by Ohio State.

Beleagured Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez admitted at a team banquet Thursday that he not only listened to wuss rocker Josh Groban but quoted one of his songs for inspiration and it makes him CRY. A “teary” Rodriguez confessed to wanting to remain “a Michigan man.”

Groban is so insipid that his music has been compared to Lawrence Welk. Even Groban himself took a shot at RichRod onhis Twitter account calling listening to You Raise Me Up “so five years ago.”
