LSUfreek is pretty much an auteur of the medium at this point.

Jim Leavitt? I'd be surprised if he is allowed to coach North Greenville let alone a top contender in the SEC.

Gus Malzahn's marriage, thankfully, is probably just fine. Right?

49ers Fire Coach Mike Singletary

That explosion on the sidelines with his QB? Bad coaching. The "I'm not an Xs and Os" guy? It shows. Good riddance Giant Wooden Cross Guy.

Nice. Over-signing now puts the financial burden on the student.

High School Hires Female Football Coach

Hmm... my previous comment isn't showing up or was deleted. Eh... to respond directly to your fake question: I'm put-off by what I know to be true. High schools run the spread. Football is a no girls zone. High schools run the spread as one of the most predominant offenses in the country. I know this game. I know what people say. It makes me wince IN ADVANCE (YES!) because it is obvious and therefore sad/gross.

Also, I have never been nor intend to be a member of the Communist Party. Oh, I've never had a homosexual experience/relationship. Also, I am allergic to cantaloupe.

Anything else?

Kenyon Martin Flips Out Over Popcorn Prank

I'm sorry. I'm ridiculous. That they allowed some ANYBODY access to his things/cars/etc.

Kenyon Martin Flips Out Over Popcorn Prank

Did any of you read the story? He wasn't so much pissed about the prank as the fact that the organization seemed complicit in allowing some nobody access to the dude's personal items (keys) AND access to the team's private parking lot:

Martin stormed in and out of the locker room several times, and a person close to him said his anger was not over the prank, but over the fact that someone could go into his pocket and take his keys during a game. Realizing the culprit had to have access to the private code for the team's gated parking lot, he assumed members of the organization either pulled the stunt or assisted in it.

"The fact that no one saw it or had anything to say about it -- not security, not the equipment manager," a person close to Martin said, explaining the player's anger. "Somebody had to see it. He was wondering how the organization let something like that happen. What if the kid had really wanted to do something evil?"

This in a league where an owner does this:

During the Nuggets' second-round playoff series in Dallas, Mavericks fans taunted Martin's mother. After a fan allegedly called the Nuggets thugs, Cuban admitted to saying, "And that includes your son."

One might feel a little tense about stuff.

Titans Owner Bud Adams Flips Off the Bills

Adams looks like an idiot doing that. Larry Johnson got drummed out of Kansas City for calling a couple people fags and insulting his coach. Isn't Adams' display of juvenile behavior -- which was in sight of hundreds, including kids -- worse?
