Here is the PJ Star report of the disturbance outside the Civic Center. They make it seem like it was just 2 or 3 people scuffling, but from people who were there, I have heard it was much more than that. There were lots of high school students involved, and multiple fights broke out despite the PJ Star's attempt to minimize the incident-

months later, Minnesota is still struggling to find someone for their open Athletic Director job.

They had Parker Search help them last time and paid them $112,000, and they ended up hiring Norwood Teague - who had pending actions against him for sexual harassment at his former school when Minnesota hired the guy and apparently Parker Search had never bothered to check that out!

So this time, they hired a different group - Turnkey Search and are paying them.... $150,000 plus expenses!
Plus they have a committee of coaches & players to help out!

Looks like Roger Goodell might get the last laugh. After a lengthy investigation by the NFL, Goodell suspended Tom Brady last May for 4 games, which would have been served at the beginning of the Fall, 2015 season. Virtually everyone was ripping him and the NFL for suspending Tom Brady over the deflated footballs the Patriots used in the AFC Championship game in January, 2015, against the Colts, claiming he overstepped his authority or that Brady was denied due process or that there was no direct evidence proving him guilty.
Brady and the NFL Players Association appealed to the US District Court and the NFL's decision was struck down just before the start of last season. But Goodell did follow the appropriate protocol spelled out in the collective bargaining agreement between the NFL and the Players Association, so they counter-appealed. Today, the US Court of Appeals overturned the previous decision, and ruled that Goodell acted properly in suspending Brady. Thus Brady's suspension will be reinstated-

Brady's side can try another appeal, but that would be costly and take a long time. On the other hand, Bradley would miss games against Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, Houston Texans and Buffalo Bills if the suspension stands.

maybe some people are pretty clueless or biased by being Brady fans..
but it's pretty much a no-brainer here that Brady & his coach engineered this effort to cheat to their advantage and got caught..
..all their ridiculous pleas and defenses are likewise difficult to take seriously except that they do find some sympathetic fans & press ...

Here's one that blows me away...clear-cut drug use & abuse and criminal behavior simply kept quiet by the University of Minnesota wrestling coach & department

players on the Minnesota wrestling team were selling controlled, prescription drugs for profit...and the players also "admitted to using narcotics" as well...

The coach found out about it but chose not to blow the whistle, nor call the cops, nor even directly discipline them...
EVEN THO he confiscated 1,400 illegally possessed prescription Xanax pills. The players stated they had 2,500 such pills but had already sold or recreationally used the 1,100 not confiscated.

instead, he simply assigned the guilty wrestlers an extra assignment of just "writing an essay"..

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...m-write-essay/
http://www.startribune.com/source-go...lly/380899191/

I recall an incident where ONE SINGLE PLAYER acquired six such pills and was arrested, faced serious charges, was smeared by the local press for months & was suspended for multiple games,
but these guys at Minnesota seem to act like this is just jaywalking!
Why are these athletes not immediately suspended and the coach fired!!!


One more - housecleaning at Baylor- this is what needed to happen at Louisville, North Carolina, and all those other places that broke so many rules but just hoped it would all go away. We kinda always knew Ken Starr was soft on this kind of stuff.

If there's a guy who Univ. of Minnesota ought to look at it's ex-NBAer & ex-Chicago Bull Trent Tucker..

Tucker is the Minneapolis Public Schools' Athletic Director....
his school district's graduation rate for athletes is an amazing 99%
