It's June. I don't want to think about fall yet.

Well we could discuss the O'Bannon vs NCAA trial. From reading blogs at SB nation, it looks like Judge Wilken thinks the NCAA is full of bull. Their witnesses all come off sounding like douche bags.

Enjoyable and accurate discussion of Michigan State.

http://www.everydayshouldbesaturday.com ... igan-state
S: I think we also like the kind of player Michigan State tends to recruit on defense, i.e. the Florida kind of defensive player. Someone who enjoys hurting someone at high speed, often with little regard as to whether said hurting was a.) legal b.) directed at the correct color jersey and c.) tats. Just lots and lots of tats.

R: That reminds me: we love Pat Narduzzi. He has lovingly built this murder factory and refuses to sell it to some fancy high bidder in exchange for a head coaching job. There's a real possibility he never leaves, even if we need him to be our lead space ambassador. "Yeah, I know those aliens might kill us all. But all I'm focused on is Wisconsin."

Nobody wants to discuss Dorial Green-Beckham signing as a free agent with Oklahoma?

Yeah, it would be awesome if that case brings the NCAA to its knees.

Ehhh, he'll never play a down with them, so doesn't bother me much. His request to play this year will be denied and he'll enter the draft next year. I just see this is having a place to train/keep sharp/possibly rehab his image for the draft.

If he'd had just sat out and not signed with a school, I see how that might have hurt his draft stock as some teams would assume he'd be rusty/not in football shape physically/mentally.

And if he'd had gone to a div 2 program to play next year, he'd risk injury.

Signing with a div 1 school and sitting out the year, but training/staying in shape always seemed like the best decision he could make, in my opinion.

DGB....what a monumental let down. He had a decentish year last year, iirc. But he never lived up to the hype and then gets booted after two years for a rape or whatever. BOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm ready for SEC Media days to be over. I've paid zero attention this year. Hope Arkansas goes 0-8 again. I'm so sick of Bielema.
