My favorite two tweets today:
Clearly, Huntley Johnson needs to open a multi-state practice.
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!
In case you were wondering about one other thing in the defensive depth chart…
Spoken like a man who hasn’t followed the Georgia football program for years.
Time for a little college football nosh.
Remind me why you got your ass fired, again.
Art Briles claims to be dumbfounded by the unfolding of events at Baylor. I can’t figure out what’s more damning — that he’s sincere about feeling that way, or that he’s BSing.
In any event, he’s promising “That day will come” when he gets to tell his side of the story. I suspect that’s when many of us will join him in being dumbfounded, although not for the same reason.
So, how tone deaf has Florida been handling the Title IX inquiry involving Gators receiver Antonio Callaway? This tone deaf:
Florida athletics officials, including athletic director Jeremy Foley, were furious with their university-side counterparts Friday for the way they handled this situation. If not for this, the athletic department could have explained any outcome with this: The university has handled this from the start. Here are all the steps that were taken. This was all by the book.
Shades of ‘We want to build a university our football team can be proud of.‘ Too bad they can’t live up to that lofty standard.
Maybe Foley will testify at the civil trial.
