In case you missed it on my twitter feed or the FTRS facebook, we present Spencer Hall's piece regarding the NCAA-Miami debacle. Its fairly short and 1000% worth your time.

Mr. Robert Big Wheel, an accomplished lawyer, breaks down exactly how the NCAA screwed up in the Miami investigation up in the parlance of normal folks.

Bees and balls! That Sounds Wrong! Baseball America pinned GT baseball at 16th in its preseason poll, and this is exciting to me and maybe The_GT_LineageX11. GT has now been ranked 12th, 16th, and 17th in the preseason baseball polls, and my full season preview will be up at the end of next week.

This sort of thing cannot be made up. The Louisville Cardinals earned a bit of praise from an unlikely place today as a resolution passed on the floor of the Georgia state Senate lauded the Cardinals for their win over hated Florida in the Sugar Bowl. I read laws and other legal documents for fun sometimes (I've watched The West Wing waaayyy too much), and I just wanted to point out my favorite sentance in any one of them, ever:

WHEREAS, sophomore quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who went 20-for-32 for 266 yards and two touchdowns in the win, was named the Sugar Bowl Most Valuable Player, as well as the Big East Offensive Player of the Year this season...

A stat line! In a legal document carrying the force of law! You can't make this shit up, indeed.
