Navy Beats Notre Dame In Triple Overtime

The problem is there is no real accountability at Notre Dame. Notre Dame fans are too loyal to question the program. Notre Dame has no real conference, so every year they are essentially competing with "themselves". Charlie Weis's contract is obviously way too long. So all of a sudden, there's nobody left to criticize. They are a team on an enormous pedestal and no safety net. Meanwhile, nobody's talking about Michigan. As a Buckeye fan, I'll be damned if I'm not proud of the way Lloyd Carr turned things around after two disastrous, early-season losses. There's a guy who managed to keep his career intact, not because of the length of his contract, but by his ability to keep his team together after a loss that brought them to the brink of disaster. And they are positioned to potentially win the Big Ten. And fans in Columbus will be biting their nails when Ohio State rolls into Ann Arbor this year. The question is simply this: why could Michigan turn it around, but Notre Dame couldn't? I'm sorry, but on the merits of his post-game interviews alone, I feel fairly comfortable stating that Weis talk and acts like a stupid fuck. He's not talking to his players through the media, he's not talking to the community that supports him. He has no upside. He doesn't appear confident. He doesn't even act that accountable to the spirit and legacy of the program. He just is. Almost Belicheck-ian. But sorry brother, this isn't the NFL. And it's starting to disgust me how overweight he is.

Martina Hingis reveals she tested positive for cocaine at Wimbledon, announces retirement immediately thereafter.

Wow. I have a lot of respect for Hingis, and I think that if major sports organizations are going to drop the hammer on players that test positive for banned substances, they damn better well make sure that positive test results are 100% correct. I mean, you're talking about professional athletes' careers being ruined by speculation. Sponsorship dollars. Advertising stream. I had a friend recently take a drug test - they were looking for a particular drug - and he ended up failing for something he had never taken before in his life.
