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!

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.

SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle

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.

Here it is. I like how the USC guy wearing #10 was just waiting for the pass to come down as if it were a punt. Dude! Just knock the ball to the ground. *Someone's* doing laps on Monday.

Because I'm too lazy to actually read the article right now, does this ruling affect the other sports as well?

You can still make this week's picks, grum. Obviously you won't be able to pick last night's game, but the rest of the games are still open.

Incredible save by Super King (by way of New Zealand) Brendon McCullum in today's Champions League T20 match. Thanks in part to McCullum's bat, the Chennai Super Kings scored almost 250 runs in a twenty20 match.
