Well, at this point no one ever saw him with any stolen guitar, and they saw his teamate with the laptop. He pleaded guilty to avoid a trial. I take his word for it. You dont have to, thats fine.
The point is, the NCAA cant use the excuse that he was not in good standing with his previous team, as there are numerous examples, not just the one I pointed out, of people who were kicked off their previous teams and moving on and not sitting out. Hell we had one here just last year as Eniel Polynice got kicked off and transfered to Seton Hall and he will play this year.
I am not saying Masoli is a saint, and sure, he fucked up, but the NCAA cant just enforce the rules whenver they like. That is bullshit. If he were a 2nd team lineman he would be playing Saturday.
Also, we kicked off a player, Tig Barksdale, a few weeks ago, and he will play AGAINST us Saturday. Granted, he went down a division, but how in the fuck does the NCAA rationalize that type of behavior then?

Another thing that is funny, is how later down the road you here about violations and shit. For example, Reggie Bush, Derrick Rose, how do those things not get taken care of right away? Certain players get passes or maybe it is just certain colleges and franchises, but I think big-time places some how pay people off to make it unnoticed until later dates.
USC thing doesn't really happen to until everybody is gone. The Same with Rose, both coach and him bounced, they make the obvious statements that isn't why they left, but I doubt that as well, cause they all know what is going and all know that it is against the rules.
Yeah, I hate retroactively punishing players and teams when the offending players AND coaches have moved on. That seems like bullshit. Maybe punish the University financially, but to limit what kids who are just now getting there can do in terms of bowl games, that seems wrong.
Speaking of the sucker puncher, he has looked nice for the Titans this exhibition season, easily replacing Lendale the Whale.
Well, last nights games were mostly duds, except Utah beating an over rated Pitt team. Every year a few teams from the Big Least get ranked way higher than they should, Pitt was that team this year. Dont get me wrong, Utah is a good team, but nothing compared to what they were a few years ago. But shit, they can run the table now and get a BCS big after beating one ranked team.
Southern Miss laid down and took it like a woman at USC, that was a big let down. I thought USM would put up more of a fight, but it looks like Spurrier might finally have a team that can challenge Florida/Georgia, but it could have just been the terrible ass USM defense, who knows.
In other news, Lane Kiffen: STILL A DOUCHE, going for 2 pt conversions last night on the first 3 TD's, WTF is that?

The reason all teams don't go for two is because it is a risky play. Kiffin probably has some plays that he feels very confident about. It's a percentage game. If you think you can successfully get two points more than 50% of the time consistently, then it is a success. Most teams probably don't feel you can get that, compared to the much higher rated PAT.
How good is BYU supposed to be this year? Havent heard much talk about their team other than all the conference re-alignment shit. They are always legit it seems like.
Is UW gonna win the Pac10?
Big time high school game in my neck of the woods as the #1 High school team in the nation (per Rivals) is taking on another team on a 28 game win streak out of Memphis (MUS). Quite a few highly prized recruits to take the stage.
If going for 2 gives you a better chance to win they why doesn't every team in the country do it? There is no way to rationalize going for 2 in the first quarter of a game you should win in a blowout.
Obviously not every team feels like it gives them a better chance to win. Kiffin did. Nothing wrong with it if you ask me.
And I don't want to hear about games you "should" win in a blowout. Shit happens, especially early in the year on the road. You can't take anything for granted. Maybe if Michigan made a couple 2 point conversions vs Appalachian State they wouldn't have lost.
I'm not a Kiffin fan, and he probably is an asshole - but his actions last night don't prove anything.
Dash: I fell asleep in the 3rd quarter of both games. Bucks/Hawks was hype though.

Dash: Bucks are not a good team and are only in because Nets/Hawks got injured. They look several steps behind Phoenix.

sativa417: I'm not a Chris Paul fan, since I hate his flopping and Grizz played his Clipps in some good playoff series, so he's like the enemy to me, but still a great player, so down for him finally getting a ring. Crazy Suns are where they are now. When James Jones

sativa417: took over as GM, people were crapping on some of his moves, but he's put together a hell of a team

kfilament: its interesting how everyone wanted to put an asterisk next to last years champions, but honestly this year seems fluky as hell with injuries, etc., but yeah, hate CP3 as a grizz fan by not mad to see him win one.

kfilament: Pumped the Bucks gonna do it.

Dash: Feel bad for Paul and Booker. Ayton was so ass.

kfilament: Draft night and for once I am not worried the Grizz are going to fuck themselves on national TV
