I'm the co-champion! In yer face SpoFi!
Banner layout by dusted, football image found on the Web by jerseygirl, and gussied up bit by me.

In Fake Classes Scandal, UNC Fails Its Athletes—and Whistle-Blower: Beginning in the 1990s and continuing at least through 2011, UNC’s Department of African, African American, and Diaspora Studies offered more than 200 lecture courses that never met. The department also sponsored hundreds of independent study classes of equally dubious value. Internal reviews have identified forged faculty signatures and more than 500 grades changed without authorization. The students affected were disproportionately football and basketball players. Behind the cover of this week's edition.

Just watched the highlights. Oh. My. God. Too bad the World Cup is half way around the world. I'm able to watch a few overs before needing to go to bed.

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

I love watching rugby. It's all calvinball to me but still fun to watch. It feels like a backyard football game among friends where new moves keep getting added to the game and stick around only if nobody objects. My favorite is the inbound pass that features a guy getting lifted 15 feet in the air by his teammates.

NFL Playoff Pick 'Em Contest, Super Bowl 0x31 Round

Is anyone picking a winner against your rooting interest?

To be honest, I'm not all that interested in this year's Game. Seattle won it last year and I'm just flat out sick of seeing the Patriots on my TV, but I'll peep in here and there just to see how well my picks turn out. However, when The Great British Baking Show is on at 8:00 tonight, you bet your life I'll be tuned in.
