English izz hard.

So the University of Oklahoma tells the NCAA it’s FOS about its conclusion that the school didn’t adequately monitor Rhett Bomar’s employment. Rather strongly, as a matter of fact:

“We … assert that the University met, if not exceeded, industry standards regarding our student-athlete employment monitoring,” University President David Boren said in a letter dated March 7…

I might be more impressed with Boren’s stand if his command of the mother tongue were a little better when he writes:

“The University of Oklahoma stands for principal (sic), and all the actions we took in this matter illustrate that character.”

Dude, you’re the President of a state university. The least you can do is carefully read what goes out over your signature – assuming you do know the difference between “principal” and “principle”.  If you don’t, you’ve got  problems besides a car dealership’s payment arrangements.

Psst… wanna make some easy money?

After you read this, see if you have the same two questions I do:

  • Are there really people that are jonesing so bad for some gambling action that they have to resort to betting on Toledo football games?
  • Does Toledo have a player on its roster that could affect the outcome of a game by sitting out?

I’m just trying to figure out what kind of return “Gary” got for his investment. On the surface, he doesn’t strike me as the sharpest tool in the shed, so to speak…

UPDATE:  “Gary” is “reached by phone Friday at King Cole Foods, a grocery store in Detroit.”
