Eleven years later, [Redacted] says "I'm sorry"


In a statement released today, [Redacted] finally and formally apologized for publicly defending Pierre Pierce. He called his remarks at the time "inappropriate, insensitive, and hurtful" to the victim. Maybe hell froze over. But it's also possible that this was UCLA's idea and he was once again "doing what the university told him to do."

ISU Guilty of Major Recruiting Violations


We'll see what kind of punishment the NCAA doles out, but this is significant. ISU was found guilty of major recruiting violations in every sport. From USA Today: "Iowa State University athletic coaches made 1,484 impermissible phone calls to recruits and has agreed that it has committed "major violations" of NCAA rules, according to documents made public Wednesday.

This also marks the first time an Iowa player earned Offense POW since Moeaki last year against (guess who?) Michigan. In honor of Stanzi's stellar play, Big Ten officials will re-name the award "Manzi of the Week."* Not to take anything away from Stanzi's superb performance, but if any Hawkeye was going to be OPOW this week I expected it to be Robinson. DJK would also have been a deserving winner. *(I can only dream that this is true.)
