    Three observations:

    1) Herbie isn’t a real fan of the B12 either; apparently didn’t appreciate how funny we thought the earthquake video was last year….

    2) SI is clueless…only 4 conference wins? really? I really hope UT is reading that thinking they’ve got an easy beat down on their schedule in Stillwater.

    3) It’s a great relief that I was a child of the 60′s where getting your hands in a girls pants wasn’t called “rape by instrumentation”….it was called “getting to 2nd base”…..I’m not a fan of indulging athletes, but this prosecution and conviction does look way over the top.

      Great points. On #3, I agree completely about the conviction, but I’m with Kyle in my ambivalence. Responsible minds need to prevail. These kinds of things can do way more harm than good if someone doesn’t keep their hands around it.

      On your #3: Not saying he’s guilty or innocent, but if it did happen, you can’t compare it to “getting to 2nd base”.

        Didn’t mean to leave that impression, if it’s not consensual then it’s felony battery in it’s most minimal legal definition and without doubt over the line. I was just really surprised that it was called rape by instrumentation; that has a different mental image for most people usually involving some object.

          Gotcha, and yeah I agree the terminology gives off an impression of something different.

    Loved the Grantland piece.

    And didn’t Monken say pretty much the same thing as Mike Leach did at Texas Tech regarding girls being distractions to football? Just Monken was more polite about it than the Pirate. Contrary to the opinion of others, Monken is learning some social graces, after all.

    According to SI, if Lunt completes 64% of his passes, then there is a very small chance we only go 7-5, unless all 14 of those INT’s are Pick 6′s

  • Jeff

    Noticed that too…
