WP Cumulus Flash tag cloud by Roy Tanck and Luke Morton requires Flash Player 9 or better.

Free Donte Paige-Moss!

Wait…the charges were dismissed? Okay, never  mind then.

I imagine the judge in Orange County saw this was nothing more than a fight between two teammates that just so happened to take place in a dorm room instead of the locker room and probably decided he would let Butch Davis handle it.  Which according to [...]

Wall’s Next Visit?

The Wake County Courthouse apparently.

Via WRAL.com:

Wall, a 6-4 playmaker, averaged 21 points, seven rebounds and nine assists for Raleigh Word of God Christian Academy this past season. He is the No. 1-ranked recruit in the country by both Rivals.com and Scout.com and among the last top players yet to commit.

Authorities said Wall, [...]

Three UNC Football Players Assaulted[UPDATED]

Update: The N&O has a fuller account that quite frankly is one of the more bizzare things I have seen.

During a bail hearing Thursday afternoon, Assistant District Attorney Morgan Whitney said the three players had gone to a couple of downtown Chapel Hill bars to celebrate one of their birthdays.

They met Washington, Taylor [...]

The Miami Mess, Part 2

Miami attempted to put the whole brawl controversy to rest today by holding a press conference and having unversity president Donna Shalala shake her fist at the camera and swear it will never happen again.

“This university will be firm and punish people who do bad things,” Shalala said. “But we will not throw any [...]

The Miami Mess

Most anyone with a pulse has heard the Miami and Florida International brawled during their game on Saturday. Both Miami and FIU had extended the ACC/Sun Belt supsensions by suspending a combined 31 players. Miami color analyst for the Comcast Sports broadcast, Lamar Thomas, who applauded the actions of Cane players during the brawl has [...]

Youth Football Parents Gone Wild

As a parent with children approaching the age where they might be able to participate in actual sporting events I have spent some time thinking about how I should conduct myself when I go watch them play. My hope is that I can be more controlled than I am when I watch UNC play(for which [...]

Game. Set. Reasonable Doubt

The defense lawyers for the accused Duke lacrosse players filed motions to have the Durham DA Mike Nifong release all of the evidence he had to them in a discovery motion. Nifong turned over 1300 pages of evidence which the defense promptly leaked to the media. According to Fox News the evidence basically shreds any [...]

Durham DA Spins Wheel, Indicts Third Player

At least that is the way it seems. The Durham County DA Mike Nifong got his third indictment in the Duke lacrosse rape case. The grand jury, who mind you, only hears evidence from the DA, indicted Duke senior co-captain David Evans on charges of rape, sexual assault, and kidnapping. Now based on what has [...]

Duke Lacrosse Case: Witness Intimidation

I am not sure what kind of game the Durham DA Mike Nifong is playing but it is most certainly a dirty one. According to the News and Observer, the alibi witness for one of the players, a taxi driver has been arrested and charged with shoplifting in connection with the theft of five purses [...]

More Thoughts on the Duke Lacrosse Case

In considering the media role in the Duke Lacrosse Case I asserted that one of the deeply troubling trends found in the conclusions being made on the national coverage level exhibited an incredible level of hubris and illustrated little knowledge of Duke, Durham, and North Carolina in general. There was never a starker example of [...]

The Duke Lacrosse Case, Part 2

The Defense

The defense lawyers in this case have been known for their penchant to put their case and counter evidence on display for the world to see. The most obvious reason why is they are influencing a potential jury and hoping the public opinion will tilt so far in favor of their clients it [...]
