McKnight/SUV Scandal: Follow-up Re. "United States of China" Marketing Guy

A followup re a hilarious (but questionable) individual who was one of the focal point of Joe McKnight's SUV scandal at Southern Cal.

NCAA insists it plays fair, but ... IT DOESN'T

+

Been an interesting month for us Bronco fans. Being part of the "most frivolous "Lack of Institutional Control" case in NCAA history" has been an interesting experience. Dan Wolken over at FOX sports has a great write up in light of the NCAA's recent attempt at increasing goodwill dubbed "The Enforcement Experience." Actions speak louder than words fellas. From the article: "Just think about the headlines we’ve seen in the past year. UConn basketball received only minor, meaningless penalties for using an agent and a booster to recruit a high-profile player. Even as his father admitted to soliciting a pay-for-play scheme, Newton was never suspended, and no school has been accused of violating rules. Oregon paid $25,000 to a "scouting service" run by an alleged street agent, who had connections to two high-profile players in Texas. The North Carolina football program has been probed for both academic misconduct and connecting players with agents....the general public knows the difference between sleeping on a floor in Boise and having agents recruit your players." NCAA, start acting by dropping this crapfest LOIC case and get some real work done IE:Scam Newton's Auburn, OSU, Oregon, etc.

Maybe the NCAA is Trying to Make It Up to Us for Suspending A.J.

Jim Tressel Is Safe and Bruce Feldman Is Wrong, an Examination of Where the Case Stands

70

Ohio State coach Jim Tressel is safer than people think and the media are perpetuating the idea that his job is inevitably in danger.

Jim Tressel Voluntarily Ups His Suspension To Five Games

17

Moments after the NCAA denied Ohio State's appeal of the players five game suspension, Jim Tressel announced that he'll increase his own suspension to five games. Take a wild guess who Ohio State plays in that first game back? Personally, I don't expect this suspension to remain intact. The NCAA is still investigating Tressel and Ohio State after it was revealed that Tressel knew about the tattoo-parlor violations a year ago, and failed to take action. When the NCAA finishes that investigation, I expect Tressel to be suspended even longer, if not fired.
