Saturday Links (1/17)

A small bit o' reading for the day...

(NOTE: This batch of links includes English breeding standards, sex problems for a hoops coach, girls in lingerie, and a pole dancing instructor talking football, thus making today our raciest batch of links ever. Consider it a ratings ploy.)

-- Consider this the Butterfly Effect at work: Jon Gruden turns down the Tennessee job. Then Tennessee hires Lane Kiffin. Then Lane convinces his dad, Monte, to quit Gruden's staff in Tampa Bay to become UT's defensive coordinator. Then Raheem Morris gets the D coordinator gig in Tampa before Gruden is fired, and now will be named Bucs head coach. Funny how life works, huh?

-- The British Kennel Club is changing the breeding standards for the English Bulldog, and the Augusta Chronicle lets you know how it might affect future Ugas.

-- I have no clue who this guy is or what makes him a draft expert. I suppose it's his overuse of question marks. Nevertheless, he breaks down the underclassmen in this year's draft. Oddly, he seems to give Asher a more ringing endorsement than Knowshon or Stafford.

-- Billy Gillespie has warned his Kentucky team that Georgia's defense will be far better than what they saw in Tennessee earlier this week when Jodie Meeks dropped 54.

-- The AJC's Tim Tucker wonders what Meeks might do against Georgia on Sunday.

-- Apparently his scuffle with a Cincinnati cab driver hasn't been the worst thing to happen to Mississippi coach Andy Kennedy.

-- Speaking of unhappy coaches, things aren't looking good for Steve Spurrier at South Carolina, where his assistants are leaving in droves.

-- The Gym Dogs looked good against LSU on Friday.

-- Remember the Gator girl pole dancer video I linked to the other day? Well, she sat down for an interview because, well, I don't know.

-- As a Cubs fan, I'm not sure if this mathematical analysis of the probability of failing to win a World Series for a century makes me feel better or worse. I think I'm probably confused because I killed all the brain cells I used to pass Finite Math my junior year in college.

-- Five days counting until the new season of "Lost." USA Today gets you caught up.

-- And finally, you can now rest easy: The Lingerie Bowl lives.

I suppose I should have ended with Asher Allen's down side, right?



I am a African American male from Detroit,MI. I am 26 and at FT.Benning,Georgia. even though I might get in trouble for typing these controversial words I don't care. The army is no place for todays youth from the inner city. There is too much racism and low patience. Now if you really want to join and fight this so-called war on terrorism then go for it. There are a total of over 3,600 dead soldiers and over 27,000 wounded soldier from March 19, 2003 to August 2, 2007 according to the Army Times Magazine. Those totals are just from Operation Iraqi Freedom. The total deaths from Operation Enduring Freedom are 1,448 injuries and 415 deaths from October 10, 2001 to August 2, 2007. The average age of these soldiers are from 18-24,which is the ripe age of a struggling ghetto youth. The black man has no place in the military unless they wish to lose contact with their roots. Turning the white man's way is not always the way out. Especially now in the situation our country is in. I can understand why someone would leave the street life to go kill legally! I'm just speaking from a inside the box stand point. With me being in the military I see day to day how the racism and favoritism and sexism floats about in uncle Sam's world. Let's not forget the drug use also,the main people you have to watch out for nowadays are the Army recruiters. They will manipulate a young African Americans mind to get him to believe that the military is the only way out of the ghetto. I propose to the government,better yet challenge them to put more money in the ghetto by rebuilding schools and hospitals. I challenge them to help these single mothers off welfare and find them a decent job. I challenge them to stop cutting summer programs out and free lunch for under-privileged youth. By cutting all these necessities to urban society you are limiting the youth of today and all their capabilities making the military their only option. When you enter the military you are trapped at least for three years. Please do not follow in my footsteps,stay in school and strive to do whatever it takes to stay away from the military. This war is not worth it,you have a better chance surviving in the streets than you do in Iraq.
