What a day in sports

My, my, my. What a day for sports.

First up we have Maurice Clarett who was sentenced to 3.5 years for aggravated robbery and carrying a concealed weapon. That make OSU happy… at least for the next 3.5 years or until he’s released.

Second, my statements about the QB situation at NCSU continue to be valid. Chuck named Daniel Evans the starter for this weekend’s game against BC. Much as Marcus Stone replaced an ineffective Jay Davis, now its Evans’ turn to replace an ineffective Stone. Until NCSU finds a solid QB, they are going to continue to struggle. I sincerely hope Evans is it.

Finally, we have the ultimate embarassment of the day. OU President David Boren — not the athletic director; the President — sent a letter to the the Big 12 asking that this past weekend’s game be nullified in the records books. What a joke. And what it statement it makes about how important football is to OU. Forget academics. Its football and nothing but football. If the Boren reported to me I would have him fired.

Much like Chuck’s inane comment about Akron’s non-qualifiers, this request is just sour grapes because they lost… lost the game and lost any hope of winning a national championship, not that they had much chance after the car dealership scandel of several weeks ago.

Yes, the calls were awful as were the refs, but that does justify nullifying the record. Cheating and/or betting?  I would listen, but not for bad calls.  Boren, s@#$ happens and it happened to OU this past Saturday.

  1. Here’s a different perspective on the OU game from Mark Cuban:

    There’s a lot of truth in that commentary… a whole lot of truth.
