Not so fast, friendo.

The University of Colorado’s Board of Regents, not wanting to be tarred with the same brush as Baylor, has delayed considering Mike MacIntyre’s $16.25 million contract extension while the school reviews the coach’s handling of domestic abuse allegations levied against a former assistant coach.

Not sure where this is headed.  Regents run the risk of looking like they’re rubber stamping if the investigation is done merely to provide cover for the school.  But MacIntyre won 10 games last year and coached in the conference title game.  Colorado posted a grand total of 11 wins in the four previous seasons, so how hard do you want to make his life?

Sad beyond words

There are times when that phrase is not a cliché.

This is one of those times.

Today, in Baylor, a continuing series

Progress of a sorts:  an assistant strength coach was arrested in Waco and charged with a crime of a sexual nature, but the good news is that at least the sex was consensual.

Hey, you gotta start somewhere.

It’s signing day!, part eleven

Those of you who thought Florida had suddenly grown a pair of… um, scruples about refusing to sign the kid who was cited for pot possession while on a recruiting trip to Ohio State need to rethink.

I bet he’s already got Huntley Johnson on retainer.

I could have played for Urban Meyer, but then I got high.

There is so much about this story to enjoy.

Reports surfaced Saturday that Lakeland receiver James Robinson, a top Gators’ target with National Signing Day approaching Wednesday, was cited for possession of marijuana last weekend during his official visit to Ohio State.

In the state of Ohio, where marijuana possession has been somewhat decriminalized, possessing amounts up to 100 grams is considered a minor misdemeanor and violators will receive a citation and up to a $150 fine. There is no jail time and the incident does not become part of the defendant’s criminal record.

As dumbass moves go, taking weed on a recruiting trip ranks right up there with the best.

Corch dropped the kid like a hot potato, but Florida, as we all know, right now can’t be as choosy about whom it chases, and here’s a kid who didn’t get into enough trouble to require Huntley Johnson’s services to play for the Gators.  (At least, not yet.)  What to do, what to do?

Head coach James McElwain has had two current players cited for marijuana possession during his two seasons at UF. Running backs Mark Thompson and Jordan Scarlet both served one-game suspensions, so McElwain has show a bit of tolerance for this type of rules violation, since both players remained on the team and have been large contributors at times.

The man’s not even gonna break a sweat with this call.

The father of Second Chance

Bobby Bowden’s lettin’ it all hang out these days.

“Back in those days, when a boy gets into too much trouble it starts as a felony. If a boy has a felony, he can’t play, nothing I can do,” Bowden said. “So you try to get it reduced down to a misdemeanor, and unless it’s a terrible thing you usually can. I think (the movie) shows how I’d give them second chances if I can. Some boys would get in trouble so bad I couldn’t do nothing. I’d lose ‘em. But the worst thing is I didn’t want to kick them back out on the street. They don’t need to be out on the street. I’d try to save ‘em.”

Amen, Reverend Bobby.

The man is an inspiration to countless head coaches who have followed in his wake.  What a legacy!

All about Mixon

Unfortunately, as great as things started with the Rose Bowl, the evening had to end with the Sugar Bowl.  The game itself was a clunker, as Auburn typically got off to a good start and then gradually disappeared.

Along the way, we were treated to an embarrassing defense of Joe Mixon by Brent Musburger.

Brent is apparently unaware of the Rule of Holes, as he went on later in the broadcast to defend his comments.


Meanwhile, the fans didn’t want to be left out of the fun.

Nice shit show, guys.
