Errors in Inquiry on Rape Allegations Against FSU’s Jameis Winston - NYTimes.com
Early on the morning of Dec. 7, 2012, a freshman at Florida State University reported that she had been raped by a stranger somewhere off campus after a night of drinking at a popular Tallahassee bar called Potbelly’s. As she gave her account to the police, several bruises began to appear, indicating recent trauma. Tests would later find semen on her underwear. For nearly a year, the events of that evening remained a well-kept secret until the woman’s allegations burst into the open, roiling the university and threatening a prized asset: Jameis Winston, one of the marquee names of college football. Three weeks after Mr. Winston was publicly identified as the suspect, the storm had passed. The local prosecutor announced that he lacked the evidence to charge Mr. Winston with rape. The quarterback would go on to win the Heisman Trophy and lead Florida State to the national championship. - Eric Logan from Bookmarklet
Florida State University Response To Today's NYT Story. http://fsunytimes.fsu.edu/ - Eric Logan
I truly don't understand why so many intelligent adults are fans and spectators of professional and collegiate sports. If the fact that most of the players are drug enhanced meatheads who don't belong on a college campus doesn't turn fans away, the obvious social agendas should be a turn-off. - Todd
Two quotes that stick out in this article: "“I learned quickly what football meant in the South,” said Mr. Ruiz, who grew up in New York State. “Clearly, it meant a lot. And with respect to this case I learned that keeping players on the field was a priority.”' and " It [Seminole Boosters] also paid roughly a quarter of the $602,000 salary of the university president, Eric Barron, who was recently named president of Penn State." - Todd

The federal government has opened an investigation of Florida State University's handling of the Jameis Winston case.
The federal government has opened an investigation of Florida State University's handling of the sexual assault allegation against Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston, FOX Sports has learned. And that investigation will also look back at all sexual assault cases involving Florida State students in the past three years. The question: Whether school administrators complied with their responsibilities under the federal gender-equity law known as Title IX. - Eric Logan from Bookmarklet

We Only Need to Fill Out 425 Brackets Each to Win Buffett’s Billion.
Warren Buffett’s Bracket Challenge* has put even more of a spotlight than usual on March Madness, the annual NCAA basketball tournament. Buffett has offered a billion dollars to anyone who correctly predicts the outcome of all 63 games in the tournament. There are 2 possible outcomes of every game and therefore 263— 9,223,372,036,854,775,808, or about 9 quintillion—different brackets we could create, giving us a 1 in 9 quintillion chance of winning. Not so hot. - Eric Logan from Bookmarklet

Falcons WR Roddy White wants to see how NFL punishes Jim Irsay - CBSSports.com - http://www.cbssports.com/nfl...
Falcons WR Roddy White wants to see how NFL punishes Jim Irsay - CBSSports.com
"Most of the conversation in the wake of Colts owner Jim Irsay's arrest for operating a vehicle while intoxicated, along with four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance, has been about a man struggling with drugs and how he "desperately needs help." But if this had been an NFL player instead of the man who pays them, the media and fan reaction would've been predictably different (see here, here, here and here, for examples)." - Anika from Bookmarklet
"And the double-standard was enough to make Falcons wide receiver Roddy White tweet about it. I want to see what the NFL does about this Jim Irsay situation if a player loses a game check no matter the amount he should lose a game day — Roddy White (@roddywhiteTV) March 17, 2014 I'm guessing a million dollar fine will come which is nothing to a man that makes billions — Roddy White (@roddywhiteTV) March 17, 2014" - Anika

Lauryn Williams Becomes 5th Olympian Ever to Medal in Winter and Summer Games - The Root - http://www.theroot.com/article...
Lauryn Williams Becomes 5th Olympian Ever to Medal in Winter and Summer Games - The Root
"Track star Lauryn Williams is now the fifth Olympian ever to medal in both the Winter and Summer Games, Yahoo Sports reports. With bobsleigh partner Elana Meyers, Williams scooped up the silver in the two-woman bobsled event on Wednesday in Sochi, losing to the Canadian team by just 0.1 second, the news site notes. She won a gold just two years before in the 2012 London Games with the U.S. relay team. Meyers and Williams were originally expected to win but ultimately lost the gold because of a stellar final run by the Canadian team. Still, it was an impressive run for Williams, who has been participating in the sport for only about six months." - Anika from Bookmarklet
Lauryn Williams made an amazing feat. It's not lost on me that despite winning no medals in London or in Sochi, the media is *still* hyped up on Lolo Jones. - Anika

#‎NFL‬ team that drafts Michael Sam will be iconoclasts—film says, he can really PLAY! You don't lead the SEC in sacks if you're soft! But the social baggage he'll bring into the locker is considerable—good luck!

If he makes it that far, we'd welcome of good Von Miller replacement for the Broncos. - Eric - Watch Me Now
…yup, @Eric… Broncos need to work on that defense, I think. But I could be wrong. I'm a NY Giants fan, so what do I know?—.LOLz! - .LAG liked that

Fearless Super Bowl Predictions?
Broncos win 38 -17 - Eric Logan
Manning switches audible to Yamaha, confuses Seahawks, earns lucrative new sponsorship deal, rushes 15 yards on final play of the game to grab a 27-24 win. - Mark H
Lol. Broncos by a field goal. - Todd Hoff
Seahawks win big. The defense will be stifling and Peyton proves he is Peyton. - Todd Hoff

No-hitter http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... The last no-hitter was thrown on June 08, 2012 and it was a collective no hitter using six pitchers by the Seattle Mariners against the L.A. Dodgers. It was the 10th combined no-hitter in MLB history - Thomas Page
Perfect game The feat has been achieved 23 times in the history of major league baseball—21 times since the modern era began in 1900, most recently by Félix Hernández of the Seattle Mariners on August 15, 2012. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... , List of Major League Baseball pitchers who have struck out... more... - Thomas Page
