I'm too lazy to make a banner that shows I beat all y'alls asses in the World Baseball Classis pick 'em game. And I beat the m-effin crap out of that m-effin Baseball Prospectus

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.

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.

I don't see any sidebar ads because of my AdBlock, but I seeing the B I & link below this box stacked vertically. This has been true since last week. Also, it seems that the SpoFi twitter feed is sending double tweets whenever there is a new post here at SpoFi.

There, I have nailed these complaints to the large doors of rcade's cathedral.

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

My first thought upon seeing Elvis Andrus last night was, "Must be the one guy that looked at the 9/11 hijackers as fashion icons". Glad to see someone in the administration has called him out for his facial hair.

Call me when he gets to Moeen Ali beard status.

Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara made my Indian friends sad today. Him and four ineffectual overs to wrap up India's batting, that is. But hey, good for Sangakkara and Sri Lanka for winning the T20 World Cup.

"The other side of the Earth"? Depends where you are standing, I suppose.

And they were standing upside down!

South Africa with another squeaker of a victory by getting a ton of wickets at the end when the other side was going to overtake them. Exciting stuff.

Ralph Wilson, founder and owner of the Buffalo Bills, dies at 95

I'd prefer they stay in Buffalo.

Totally agree. The NFL, to me, just wouldn't be the same without the Green Bays and the Buffalos.

I missed South Africa's at-bat, but I caught New Zealand's. That was a very exciting finish to the match.

I always thought they were called the Orangemen.

Marketing decision? Yes.

Dayton Flyers - How can you not want to cheer for the massive underdog against their intrastate rivals, AND then against the big, bad, super school? Throw in another Canadian (Dyshawn Pierre), and a player named Scoochie ("Scooooooo!"), and they were easily every one's favourite "alternate" team.

Plus, Archie Miller!
