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.

Coach Bill Callahan Threw Super Bowl?: Former Oakland Raider players, Tim Brown and Jerry Rice, claim that coach Bill Callahan threw Super Bowl XXXVII against Tampa Bay because was still miffed at the Raiders for trading coach John Gruden to the Buccaneers.

Blind-sided: Blue Jackets’ Jack Johnson is bankrupt; who led him there is biggest shocker

From the article:
One day after the home loan was signed, on March 10, 2011, the Johnsons borrowed $2 million at an interest rate of 12 percent from a software developer in Iowa named Rodney L. Blum, who this month won a seat in the U.S. House.

Blum's office did not respond to interview requests left with Blum's spokesman by The Dispatch. It's unclear how Johnson's family came to know him or why he was making a personal loan at a high interest rate.

What the eff? Why? I just don't get why you would get a high-interest loan from some shmoe on the street. And of course this shmoe is now a House Rep.

The Jack Johnson story is sad. How could parents do that to their kid?

Owly: don't tell us, you're in Buffalo right now. Are you going to be home in time for the World Cup? Speaking of which: can any of our resident billionaires spot me a few bucks so I can spend a few months in Australia and New Zealand for said World Cup?

But the page that you linked to didn't mention anything about lettuce walls. I'm so confused. I'm going to move to Finland. That's how confused I am.

I think yerfatma meant to link here. Maybe not, though? I never found anything about lettuce walls on the Wikipedia page.

It sounds like he would do well at one of those build-your-own plates Mongolian grills.

Giants Win World Series

If, you're like me, you wonder to yourself.... "What was Barry Bonds doing after SF won the World Series?" Well, here is your answer.

That's pretty cool.

There's a local Sunday morning football TV talk show here in the Triangle that is hosted by former ECU head coach Steve Logan and he said during yesterday's show to watch out for Carolina and Cincinnati and how awful they'll be since they had to play a full five periods last week. Sure enough, both teams were awful yesterday. Good thing for you gamblers to take note of.

I remember some time at the beginning of the season, someone mentioned that if Kirk Cousins was really good and ready to lead a team as a starting QB, Kyle Shanahan probably would've had the Browns trade for him during this year's draft as they really didn't have a QB then. If anyone in the NFL knew how good Cousins really was, it would've been K. Shanahan.

I think attendance is going to take a nosedive in Raleigh as well. Unless the 'Canes can actually start winning, that is.

That was a really nice heads-up play on Smith's part. Steve Smith has really been making a name for himself in this series.

Aside: is there any reason I should feel bad for liking Danny Morrison's announcing? He cracks me up. He's not a neo-nazi or anything is he? He doesn't dine on the livers of the young or anything like that, right?

Why did the Rams ever give up this great blue and yellow color scheme? The replacement colors were so...meh.
