This recruiting blurb is so chock full of teh awesome that I hardly know where to begin.
But lemme try, anyway: Charlie Weis, “known mostly for his recruiting prowess”, has picked up his first commitment at Kansas, a seventy-inch tall, 160-pound receiver whose dad coached for Weis at Notre Dame and whose high school coach is joining Weis’ Jayhawk staff. Sounds like Charlie really had to break a sweat to sway this kid to switch his commitment from… Northern Illinois.
That’s not the best part, though. Here’s the cherry on top of the sundae.
“He runs tremendous routes, shows terrific hands and blazing speed,” analyst Tom Lemming said of Parmalee. “In fact, coaches at Bishop Miege said he has the best hands and ran the best routes they’ve ever seen at the high school level.”
Just like old times! Get a room, you two.

Apparently, South Carolina’s defense to the numerous (and serious) NCAA rules violations outlined in its own 111-page report boils down to “don’t hate us ’cause we’re stupid”.

If you wonder why Mike Leach refers to the Wildcat as a passing fad, this might give you some insight.
As much as I enjoyed watching Darren McFadden tear up opposing defenses with it, I wondered why anyone treated Casey Dick as a serious option at wide receiver (although he did throw the occasional nasty block). Basically, once you quit doing that, you diminish the blocking advantage the Wildcat is designed to give the offense. Combine that with someone taking the snaps who isn’t a threat to pass and that’s how you get to a dead end.

Shorter Bob Davie: Let me humbly say that there isn’t a head coach out there who’s doing a better job than I did at Notre Dame.
I guess we can start penciling New Mexico in as next season’s BCS buster.

Meet Mark Emmert’s latest train wreck.
You begin to get the feeling that the guy was deliberately planted in his position as a secret weapon to blow up the NCAA.

It sounds like Jerry Sandusky’s attorneys intend to raise a hygiene defense.
Some of these kids don’t have basic hygiene skills. Teaching a person to shower at the age of 12 or 14 sounds strange to some people, but people who work with troubled youth will tell you there are a lot of juvenile delinquents and people who are dependent who have to be taught basic life skills like how to put soap on their body.
Maybe they intend to call Son of Dooley as an expert witness at Sandusky’s trial.
