I think The Colts should give the entire fans at the stadium one third of their money back.

That shyt is like going to a concert and the headliner cutting the show short because he doesn't feel good...
unless your Steven Tyler and knock off cause you're one clumsy sombiych

conch salad

I said before the season this was the year we get back to double digits. I meant it when I predicted that and I intend to see it happen! The Randy looks like he's a lot happier with the bowl game this year than around this time last one.

Six i remember those days. i never got a spanked a lot, but when i did it hurt like hell.

the worst was when my mom started to use slender belts instead of switches and thick belts. i would rather her punch me in the jaw than beat me with one of those.

and Truth, there is no benefit to resting your starters a week before the final game. keep in mind the Colts have a bye so they'll have the first week of the playoffs off anyway. it gets your players rusty.

the Colts never won anything when they were the favorites. it was only in 2006, when their defense couldn't stop anybody in the regular season, that they won anything.

they weren't resting their starters then because they had been playing so poorly leading up to the playoffs. when they got to the playoffs they were underdogs in all three playoff games.

the key is that they had to maintain the same sense of urgency that a wildcard team has to have. their recent play didn't afford them an opportunity to "relax" or play it safe with the starters down the stretch.

i think resting the players this early will come back to bite them, again.

Wow $100,000K a year per would have probably bought the women's silence. Being cheap cost Tiger about $100 million in endorsements and the stockholders and businesses who invested in him even more.

Once again the Heather Mills (Paul McCartney's ex) - Ashley Dupree (Eliot Spitzer's prostitute or in Tiger's case 16 Ashley Dupree's) breakdown holds true

Two University of California, Davis, professors have pinned the loss to shareholders from Tiger Woods' marital infidelity at up to $12 billion.

The study focused on nine sponsors: Accenture, American Express, AT&T, Tiger Woods PGA Tour Golf ( Electronic Arts), Gillette, Nike, Gatorade, TLC Laser Eye Centers and Golf Digest.

Shareholder value fell 2.3 percent — or about $12 billion. The pattern of losses is unlikely to stem from ordinary variation of stock prices, the researchers stated in their study.

Investors in three sports-related companies — Tiger Woods PGA Tour Golf, Gatorade and Nike — fared the worst, experiencing a 4.3 percent loss, or about $6 billion

Looks like the civil courts will get around to ruling on Reggie Bush's college years before the NCAA.

Reggie Bush has lost his bid to go to confidential arbitration to settle a lawsuit filed by a fledgling sports marketer.

The state Court of Appeal on Monday upheld a lower court's order denying Bush's motion to compel arbitration with Lloyd Lake, meaning the case will proceed in court.

CANES 34, BADGERS 20

"I'm privy to a lot of stuff going on down there, and I think whole thing has been blown way out of proportion. I'm totally in support of coach Leach," said former offensive lineman Cody Campbell, who was part of Leach's first recruiting class at Tech. "I've heard Adam James was involved with it, he supposedly had a concussion and that Leach basically made him adhere to team rules and guidelines when it comes to injuries. And (James) was upset by that.

"Leach has unusual methods for doing things a lot of times, but he's never cruel and never out of line in doing them."

Former Tech offensive lineman Daniel Loper, who now plays for the NFL's Detroit Lions, also was stunned and surprised by the allegations against Leach. Loper said the incident in question is nothing like the one earlier this year at Kansas, where head coach Mark Mangino resigned amid allegations that he abused his players verbally and physically.

"The whole time I was there, and as well as I know coach Leach, he would never do anything to publicly humiliate or endanger someone's wellbeing, and he would never do anything unprofessional," Loper said. "... I never saw him show any kind of favoritism or any kind of hate toward any singular person."

Former players Graham Harrell and Eric Morris, who finished their Tech careers last season, said Leach handles injured players appropriately and equally. They said Leach and his coaching staff do not pressure players to return to the field before they're healthy enough to do so, and Morris also said injured players are required to participate in practices just like every other Red Raider.

For example, a player with an injured leg would be required to do pushups during a workout so he could maintain his conditioning and continue to build strength. Former Tech offensive lineman Glenn January referred to the common practice as "Muscle Beach" and also said Leach "doesn't deviate from the (NCAA) rule book at all and wouldn't do anything to put a player in harm at all."

"If you're injured, you're required to still participate in some form or fashion. You still have to be outside and doing something," Morris said. "At times people have tried to get away with faking a little nag here and there, and to get away from people doing that, you always need to let everybody know they're not going to stand around and do nothing. It's a great thing to have in place. Some people want to get complacent and do different things because things aren't going their way."

Harrell, who finished the 2008 regular-season finale against Baylor despite breaking several bones in his hand during the first half, said Leach left the decision up to him and did not pressure the quarterback to play through the injury. Harrell also said he had the blessing of Tech's trainers and doctors.

"He was hard on us," Harrell said, "but it wasn't like he ever threatened us or put us in a situation that was dangerous to us."

Some former Tech players, who said they have been in contact with current Red Raiders and the coaching staff, questioned the validity of James' complaint as well as his motives and intentions. They also said James has a reputation for being soft and somewhat of a prima donna.

"I think some people honestly are not tough enough to play college football, and (James) might be one of them, especially if he's worried about being called out or humiliated," Loper said. "... Sometimes that happens, especially at the collegiate level. It's not like high school and Pop Warner, where everyone gets to play and gets a pat on the back. Sometimes coaches can be mean and yell."

January said the shed in which James spent practice on Dec. 17 might have been the most appropriate place to deal with his concussion, because it kept him out of the sunlight. January said he and his teammates on the offensive line often retreated to the same shed during practices to rest and escape the heat.

"It's not like it's some dungeon," he said.

January and some other former Tech players also suggested the incident wouldn't have been scrutinized if James wasn't the son of Craig James, a former SMU and NFL standout who now works as a television analyst for ESPN.

"It's basically a non-issue," January said. "The only reason it's getting any attention is because of who his dad is."

Neither Adam James nor any other Tech player was made available for comment Monday after Leach's suspension was announced, and Craig James did not return multiple calls from The A-J seeking comment.

Regardless of what happened, many former Tech players said the timing of the Jameses' complaint and Leach's subsequent suspension is unfortunate. The Red Raiders face Michigan State in the Alamo Bowl on Saturday, and it's also prime recruiting season.

Former players such as Harrell, Loper and Ryan Aycock said Tech administrators, recruits and even fans should not rush to judgement.

"Anybody that looks into this story should not be shied away," Loper said. "I don't know the whole situation with Adam's father and his influence, and I don't know if they're thinking they're being mistreated like the deal at Kansas. I don't think this is a situation where (Leach) should be fired or even suspended. Form what I've heard, I think it's a little over the line."

From Manny Navarro:

PREDICTION

This is going to be another tough, hard fought game for the Canes who are basically taking on a better version of the North Carolina Tar Heels. Wisconsin is physical and can create turnovers and loves to run the football. Sound like Carolina? The difference here is I don't think the Hurricanes will turn it over in this game. UM coach Randy Shannon said Monday he's been stressing all week about winning the turnover battle and protecting the football. I think in the end, UM makes enough stops on Clay and the Wisconsin running game to force the Badgers to throw the football more than they want to and Orlando Franklin has another great game at left tackle.

I'm going with UM 34, Wisconsin 24.

Now, go read his article and tell me what U think? See if anything sounds familiar?

86Cane

Yeah I agree, enough already on Leach.

At least the Urban Liar story had relevance because it's in Florida and DIRECTLY impacts Miami recruiting.

The TT story is completely irrelevant to UM.

Let it go...

The Truth

Jesus it f@cking COLD!!

It's a pity we don't have a Flash animator amongst the legion. A wheel of Urbie would fun.

Divide it into: In, Out, Leave of Absence, Doing it for family, Doing it for players, Doing it for God.

That way we'd have just as much insight into his thinking each day as everyone else around him.

Texascane

I will move on...it must be noted, for posterity's sake, that I did not start the TT discussion on this board.

...and it did liven up a late night session...

Maaaan it is cold up here in Orlando! It's gonna be colder for the game tonight!!

For those of you that are concerned with parking issues, I read that you could park your car at the AMWAY ARENA, and there are shuttles that will bring you back and forth. First shuttle time is at 5:30 p.m. I don't remember where I read it, so please confirm for yourself. Go Canes!!!
