“IX”

Righteous halftime show, Owl Marching Band.

The Rice marching band formed a “IX” on Friday night at halftime of a 38-10 loss to visiting Baylor in an apparent reference to the sexual assault scandal that has rocked the Waco, Texas, school this year.

The Marching Owl Band, which has long been known for its parody-driven performances, took the formation in front of the Baylor fan section, in an apparent reference to Title IX.

Too bad Art Briles didn’t stick around to watch.

The ultimate “Second Chance U” candidate?

After all, you know how some coaches love offensive linemen with a nasty streak.

That’s so Gators.

My favorite two tweets today:

Clearly, Huntley Johnson needs to open a multi-state practice.

Oh, to be young and in Louisiana…

Except when LSU loses.

A new study points to an even more disturbing pattern of haphazard justice: In Louisiana, juvenile court judges appear to have issued harsher punishments following an unexpected loss by the Louisiana State University football team. And disproportionately, those longer sentences fell on black children.

LSU economists Ozkan Eren and Naci Mocan came to these conclusions after studying more than a decade of state court data. In a draft of their paper, released this week by the National Bureau of Economic Research, they show that the Louisiana judges sentenced children differently during the football season, depending on how well LSU had played the previous weekend.

If I were a Louisiana criminal lawyer with a juvenile defendant, I guess I’d be doing anything I could to get a continuance this week.  Thanks, Coach Miles!

Spoken like a man who hasn’t followed the Georgia football program for years.
