  1. Recruiting

    Oh, I underestimated Truth. He wouldn't have had a plantation. He would have run a concentration camp. Lol.
  2. Recruiting

    He's been doing it for 20 years so my guess is a solid no. You have to understand, his world is crumbling around him. If NAGG had his way, he'd own a cotton plantation stocked with slaves.
  3. Recruiting

    Nolley decommits 18 hours after committing to UGA.
  4. Jeff George will start against Iowa

    Deputy moniker isn't racist or trashy enough for Plaza. Though the NASCAR mullet would help take that up a notch.
  5. Recruiting

    Still waiting for the link. And the blog.
  6. Recruiting

    Did Jonbenet Ramsey play tennis?
  7. Recruiting

    Link to cheating? Interstesting that you'd disparage your own "degree" like that.
  8. Recruiting

    I've got some ideas for Dom's Duds. Maybe a picture of a bush with eyeballs? Or possibly one with a height measurement marked at 4'8" that says "must be this size of smaller to ride".
  9. Recruiting

    They sound too old for Plaza.
  10. I wasn't worried until I heard BU

    Consider your audience. Crazy black and white thinking out of ILMAN? Shocking I say. Shocking.
  11. PJ Fleck is better

    Plus Brohm is white. That helps too, amirite?
  12. I wasn't worried until I heard BU

    No conspiracy. Not if it's done right.

    I think a lot of this comes down to how you view boosters. I view them as outside the program and you don't. They aren't employed by UI, don't work directly with anyone in the AD. They are an outside resource. You say "I don't want to steal but then I turn around and steal anyway". I say "I don't want to steal but I'll let this guy over here steal it for me and just chalk it up to dumb luck when it mysteriously shows up on my doorstep". Big difference I'd say.

    We will have to agree to disagree. Boosters aren't employed by UI. Coaches are. It's possible to keep things in-house "clean" while stuff goes on outside. I watched it happen for years at Nebraska with football. Nobody has ever come knocking for their three titles from the 90's yet I can tell you unequivocally that the money moving around was fast and loose. Whether Tom Osborne "knew" or didn't is up for debate, but he was shielded from those seedy dealings by taking them out side of the athletic department. In an ironic twist, the person who told me about a lot of those dealings is now in line to possibly become the new AD here. Now, if the FBI comes in and this #$%&@!storm somehow levels the playing field then by all means let's make sure we are clean. But expected the NCAA to enforce any kind of equitable or meaningful sanctions is just a joke. UNC cheated academically for 20 years and they've done nothing. It's in their best interest not to, because why bite the hand that feeds them? The system "as is" is a pile of shiitake. Maybe this FBI stuff changes that. We can hope. What I really want is for UI to be good in the major sports and compete for championships. I don't think that will happen in the current landscape with so many big schools all around doing the things I described (and more) above. A level playing field is nowhere in sight.

    No, it's more like I don't want to speed but I'll let you drive super fast and I'll ride along making sure I don't notice. I don't want our coaches handing money to players. I don't want them setting up jobs for parents. I definitely don't want UI to go unc style and make up classes for athletes. But if guys get money from outside the program, I have no issues with it. Just insulate yourself from what is going on. I know the difference seems subtle to some.
