Arsenal's Eduardo Da Silva injured in outrageous tackle, possibly ending his career. : A truly horrific injury, broken pieces of bone were sticking out of his sock as he was stretchered of the field. This is the sort of injury that you never truly recover from (See Alex Smith). I hope the FA bans Martin Taylor for life.

Rutgers' coach Mike Rice Berates Players at Practice

I'm with tahoemoj. How has no one snapped? Maybe coldcocking wouldn't have happened (though I'd argue it's warranted), but I'm amazed there hasn't been some sort of Texas Tech/Billy Gillispie fallout here: mass transfers, or at least the players coming together and resisting or reporting the abuse.

Clearly, this guy needs to be out of coaching ASAP.

SportsFilter: The Friday Huddle

Chris Kluwe is an Internet legend because he tries really, really, really hard to be an Internet legend.

He's like Chad Ochocinco Johnson, but with World of Warcraft and flame wars with Peter King instead of touchdown celebrations and an orange mohawk. Ehhhh.

49ers Have Deal to Trade Alex Smith

I feel really bad for Alex Smith. He went through countless offensive coordinators in San Fran, played without decent receivers, put up with Singletary, finally had a good season after a quarterback-loving head coach who understood him took over, and was in the midst of leading the Niners to another NFC championship game when some upstart youngster snagged his starting gig (and only because he sat out ONE GAME with a concussion).

What a bum deal. I wish him the best wherever he lands.

Manti Te'o's dead girlfriend was... fake?

This has to be something Te'o was in on. Stories like this poke huge holes in the "I was taken advantage of by scam artists" argument. If he met her online and had a strictly Internet relationship created by a couple of con guys, how does he explain meeting her?

Obvious rationales behind the falsehood are to curry Heisman votes or cover up something else. Either way, pretty unconscionable.

I was hoping the Jets would force a safety, get the ball back and miss a game-winning FG... but this was almost as good.

College Player Scores 138 Points In A Game

This article makes it seem like there was an intentional effort made to get the kid the record. Teammates wide open under the hoop but passing out for a three? Cherry-picking? Allowing the other team to score to get the ball back faster? This clearly isn't basketball.

Jim Tressel Resigns

Unfortunately, these means that Tressel will most likely be taking the rap, rather than the program as a whole. Here's an interesting article from SI that argues that very point.

This isn't to say that I think Tressel should stay, as he deserved to be let go. But his resignation/firing might cloud the ensuing NCAA ruling.

Peyton Manning Tanks Concussion Tests

I'd just like to point out that the actual interview in question was an informal sit-down chat between Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning, and ESPN writer (and known funny-man) Rick Reilly. For anyone with knowledge of Reilly's work (or even just from reading the original article) realizes that the chances of this being a serious answer to an open-ended question are very slim.

With that in mind, this reads more like a joke with a hidden grain of truth than a "whiny control freak" spouting off. As for making Manning look foolish, I suppose it could... but then again, context is everything. I know I've said and done things with my buddies and/or family members that might look or sound odd or are embarrassing from an outsider's perspective. But if said comment or action is prefaced the right way (which I believe this comment was), it's humorous.

Reggie Bush says he's going to forfeit his Heisman Trophy

Here's another take on it all...

Reggie Bush says he's going to forfeit his Heisman Trophy

So did you honestly think the Heisman Committee would have let him keep the trophy? You were leading the charge in favor of it being "taken away." Bush realized that he was most likely going to lose the Heisman, and jumped the gun.

And being polite in your press conference doesn't hide the fact that he's giving back the trophy. In my mind, that's sticking it to the man. "Thanks, but no thanks." He's taken the most coveted individual award in college football and gave it back. That takes moxy. Look at the last line of his statement. "These are gifts that can't be taken away." Fact is, he won the Heisman on the field. Whether his name is or isn't affixed to the record is irrelevant. He gave a shout out to the people who voted for him, and acknowledged that his on-field accomplishments can't be denied.

As for disgracing himself, his school, etc... Debate will rage about that forever.

Reggie Bush says he's going to forfeit his Heisman Trophy

Ah come on, rcade... I believe Bush's statement just about as much as I buy Tiger Wood's statement(s) after all his dirty laundry got aired. I think pholcomb has this one dead to rights. Bush got tired of the little power trips being played by the Committee, knew he was going to lose the trophy, and finally said "Fuck this, have the damn thing back already."

I mean, being the first Heisman winner to GIVE BACK the trophy sounds way better than being the first winner to have it TAKEN AWAY. Plus, he makes another good PR move by starting a foundation to support student athletes "and help them avoid some of the mistakes I made." Bush just turned a losing hand into a winning hand.
