Show of force

You know, I’d feel better about this if they’d come out and say whom they’re protecting.

I keed, I keed… I think.

It just means more.

Sports Illustrated runs a piece analyzing which schools had the least, most incidents on campus on gamedays in 2017, and only three from the SEC failed to make the list of the top 33:  Kentucky, Missouri and Vanderbilt.

Clearly, if we’re ever going to talk about removing programs from the conference, we’ve got a starting point.

Zen and the art of couch burning

If you’re the West Virginia mascot, is getting popped for a DUI a crime or part of the persona?

A plague on both their houses

I’m more than a little conflicted over this news.

On the one hand, it’s a visceral reminder that, for all the NCAA’s chest beating about being there for the kids, the organization really isn’t there for the kids.

On the other hand, at least I’m spared the sight of Mark Emmert ripping up the NCAA manual to make a personal point like he did with Penn State — a point that, by the way, was essentially neutered subsequently.

Shameful either way.

Fighting Cock

An alert reader passed this on to me, and I haven’t been able to stop laughing about it since I saw it:

Live PD is the best show on television. It’s sort of like Cops and NFL Sunday Ticket had a baby. Cameras follow police officers in several different precincts while three in-studio hosts direct viewers to where the action is. Best of all, as the title of the show indicates, most of the action is happening live, or at least on a short delay. You’re seeing your fellow Americans at their worst, and sometimes best but usually worst, as it happens.

Here are a few examples…

Richland County, South Carolina

Police respond to reports of a fight at an apartment complex. It is eventually revealed that the fight started when one man told another man that, “The South Carolina Gamecocks are an embarrassment to the SEC.” Cops said, “Well, the man has a point,” and gave him a warning.

They arrested the Gamecock fan.

Justice is served.

After further review (h/t jt), I’ve decided rather than urging Florida football to ditch the hashtag in the header, it’s better to appropriate it for our usage.

It appears Huntley Johnson is in for another busy fall.  It also appears another Lexicon entry is in the works.


UPDATE:  Dawg bringing the wit.

Today, in the grass is always greener

Yo’, mane, Justin Watkins just wants to get on with the next phase of his life after assaulting a woman or two.

I hope by “better opportunities” he doesn’t mean fresh meat.

Please, don’t @ him.  (Actually, you can’t even if you wanted to, because the tweet’s been taken down.)  The thug life is tough enough without have social media all over your ass.
