Matilda: Love the avatar.

Everybody: Mike Rice? Some coach (or assistant coach, the radio n ews wasn't clear) was "abusing" his players? Can someone give me the cliff notes version? I have no idea who he is or who he coaches.
I posted this and a link to the ESPN story when it first broke nationally, before they fired him.

The assistant coach Jimmy Martelli, nicknamed "Baby Rice", resigned the same day Mike Rice was fired. He has the same coaching style and was on the video.

It is especially a big deal for Rutgers because after Tyler Clementi's suicide, the university has been pushing their anti-bullying and anti-discrimination measures. Mike Rice was screaming at his players, calling them f'ing fairies and f'ing f*****s. One player transferred and Eric Murdock, who is the whistleblower and no longer employed by the school, said that the player's nickname was "Lithuanian f****t".

Here's anotehr blurb I just read on Mike Rice.

Rice so frequently let anti-gay name-calling fly, according to Murdock, that he even berated a 10-year-old at a camp for younger players that the flip-flops he’d shown up in “are for fa--ots.”

Watxhing it whwn you were 10 wasn't enough? You need another Shatner fix?) I want my ESPN College Gameday. I wanna see Corso's head gear. I want college football running from 10am till the midnight wrap up. I want Sunshine's Sunday replay of the mighty Nole's dominating win from Saturday. I want my Inside the NBA with the Jet and the Chuck Wagon. My TNT game of the night. Fan's choice Wednesday.
Netflix? Psshht!

But with the savings you could easily buy one. I bought a 32HD for 300 So it was paid off after 5 months of no cable.

Yes. I'll give up sports and watch a tv show that was popular when I was a child. That'll solidify my standing as a grown ass man.

You dont have to watch it, I gave up trying to figure you out when you said you were not a Rush Fan.

I'm just sayin that being fixated on college games is creepy.
