  1. Wasn’t it grand jury testimony? which is typically one sided to prove the prosecution has enough evidence for indictments. Thus that testimony is usually sealed.
  2. All this based on hearsay testimony by McQueary that Schiano wittnessed Sandusky sexually assulting a child. McQueary who as a grad assistant really did see Sandusky assulting a child, but instead of calling 911 to report a felony, McQueary sat and cried and later went to talk to his daddy about what to do. Then McQueary took a job working as an assistant coach at Penn St.
  3. UT hasn't had a decent football program for over 10 years. They kept Fulmer around longer than they should have because of the 98 BCS championship. UT runs through coaches like UAT did before Saban. Now they've had an announced head coach that never coached a down in Knoxville. UT owes Schiano an apology and probably some money for disrupting his career. UT may need another AD too.
  4. FINAL: Auburn 26 Alabama 14

    And Lee Corso wore that stupid elephant head for nothing. He chose poorly.
  5. Arkansas wants Gus

    It's not just Gus that Arky wants, they would take just about anybody to get rid of that train wreck of a coach they have turning their program into a dumpster fire. It would look worse but the weak sisters in the SEC weak division (Tennessee and Florida) look so so bad. On the upside with all the coaching changes at UT, Ole Miss, UF, and maybe TAM, there will be lots of assistant coaches that may be worth hiring. Arky hasn't had decent coaches since old Lou Holtz and Ken Hatfield left 40 and 30 years ago.
  6. Perhaps they lied to Auburn’s investigators and other evidence collected proved they were lying? Lying to your employer is normally not a criminal act, but usually grounds for discipline or dismissal. Falsifying records also falls in that area. When your employer is a public university it gets messy
  7. Butch Jones resigns/fired

    You could argue Kiffin might have worked if given time, but UT has been through 3 coaches in 9 years in the weaker SEC division. The program is a mess. Getting the kind of coach they need will take lots of cash and a long contract. Or they need to concentrate on basketball.
  8. End could be near for Jacobs

    The article quotes the differences between Auburn and UAT AD depts for senior staff and their salaries. Something is out of wack if Auburn is spending 50% more on salaries. Unless UAT just puts the extra money all on the football program

    That scenario kept Saban from going to UT Austin, so it is claimed The rest has been a disaster for Texas football
  11. End could be near for Jacobs

    I don’t think head coaches coaches active or former can be considered as ADs anymore. That used to be the norm 40 or 30 years ago. The AD job is so much different now and requires experience in that area and at smaller schools before a person can be an AD at a major school. I do think some experience as an assistant coach is needed, but not many years of it. Learning to manage athletic programs, fund raising, facility planning, personnel administration, NCAA compliance, Title IX, etc. requires years of experience as an administrator in the AD department.
  12. Stop subsidizing NFL

    Actually the kneeling will cost the advertisers, networks, and eventually these players and non protesting players money. TV Ratings are down as is attendance. The TV networks have already backed away from live coverage of this and thus censored them. Employees have no right of protest or free speech while working or in their employers workplace They need to picket on public property or rent a auditorium to state their position and not wear clothing belonging to their employers. Of course they won’t get paid while doing any of that. The NFL team owners are all about making a profit and surviving just as any other private business. The simple solution is to leave all players in the locker rooms as college teams do for the anthem. Watching the owners squirm and try to manage this is more entertaining than the not really football NFL.
  13. Stop subsidizing NFL

    Perhaps you’ll need help one day and you’ll just happily listen. Some other customer will have the repair guy disciplined or fired by his boss. The joy of customer contact jobs. The NFL players can’t do any better either. They’ve got a union and could strike or picket outside the stadium like any other union, but they wouldn’t get paid for that.
  14. UNC avoids major sanctions

    Maybe the DoJ has time now to investigate North Carolina.
  15. Stop subsidizing NFL

    Antonio Brown paid $11,576 for exercising his 1st amendment right of free speech/ expression by jumping on a goal post.. The NFL felt fans didn’t want to see this
