A person owns 49 pairs of shoes: are they a girl or about to be charged with a felony?

6

Jordan Jefferson, LSU's starting QB along with a backup linebacker Joshua Johns were both arrested on felony battery charges stemming from a bar brawl in Baton Rouge. An eye-witness says she saw Jefferson kick a guy on the ground in the face. While I know better than to think that SEC football players will charged with full felony charges, it wasn't really the part of the article that caught my eye: On Wednesday, police executed a search warrant of Jefferson's apartment and took 49 pairs of shoes, along with a DNA swab. I love how that little gem was buried in the article. Now obviously it doesn't say what kind of shoes they were, or how much they were worth, but let's be honest, where the hell does a college kid get the money for 49 pairs of shoes? They didn't even say that those were ALL of his shoes, they only indicated they took 49 pairs from his collection. Something doesn't sit right with this to me.

17 teams watched Pryor workout. Will yours be the "lucky" team you'll no longer be rooting for?

23

Pryor worked out for 17 pro teams at a HS stadium in PA: Steelers, Colts, Redskins, Saints, Buccaneers, Cowboys, Chargers, Browns, Lions, Eagles, Raiders, Dolphins, Bengals, Bills, Chiefs, 49ers and Patriots. Shockingly Pryor said, "I would like the opportunity to play quarterback, but I'll do anything that a team needs me to do to win." However just in case you were worried you were going to read a post without a golden Pryor quote, I liked this one: "I'd like to thank the commissioner, Mr. (Roger) Goodell, for giving me the opportunity to play in the NFL. It's a dream of mine to play quarterback here. We will not appeal. I'll serve (the suspension), along with my senior Buckeye buddies, because I did a wrong thing when I was young and I must serve it." Sorry, nice try, but wrong, kid. First, you did MANY wrong things (plural). And second, it wasn't "when you were young", the last wrong thing you did was LESS THAN A YEAR AGO. And the reason you won't be appealing is because the NFL has you by the balls and you know you aren't going to get paid if you don't take it. The guy from the Colts was the only one that publicly said they would absolutely NOT be taking Pryor. Tune in Monday for the supplemental draft to find out if your favorite pro team will become your EX-favorite pro team!

WOOO SIREN #8!!!!

I should note before I continue that I DO NOT have premium access to these sites. A 247 post popped up on my Facebook news feed, and I was able to deduce who it was by forum stalking reading. They give a caption-less picture anyway, so if you knew the kids face (which I don't) you could have figured it out yourself anyway. Ok, disclaimer out of the way, it's highly touted 6'6" 310lb OT JJ Denman. Welcome to the PSU family JJ! Update: Ok, so the name was released two minutes later, so my whole legal disclaimer about stealing premium info was unecessary.

"I think Bolden's gonna be here," Paterno said Friday. "I don't know. Obviously, that's something he and his family will work out. I don't want to let him go. I think he's a good prospect. When he stayed, I tried to convince him to give yourself a shot in spring practice and see what happens."

Apparently nothing changes at USC

22

I know I should just let it go, but as I was checking out oversigning.com I noticed USC has signed 28(!) recruits today, and finished in the top five of ESPN and the recruiting sites top class lists. You might remember a little incident that happened over the summer that docked them 30 scholarships over the next three years, as well as a 2-year bowl ban. Apparently thanks to a loophole in the NCAA rules, because USC is appealing their punishment from the NCAA, they're allowed to recruit as if no scholarship reduction has occurred. Not to mention rumors from signing day today that USC boosters and possibly the coaching staff were calling recruits to get them to stay committed to USC, which is another huge violation. They clearly want it, so can they just finally get the death penalty so we don't have to deal with this anymore?

Former PSU Prof. Survives Plane Crash

5

This is a pretty crazy story. And please, a former very recognizable politician was killed in the crash, and while I didn't care for the guy myself, he was just killed so don't belittle this story with politics, this was meant to be a story about a former PSU professor. Professor Shawn O'Keefe and his son were two of four of the survivors of a plane crash that killed 5 people, including former Alaska Senator Ted Stevens. They sustained minor injuries. The article says O'Keefe was a business administration professor from 1993-96, and then was NASA administrator from 2001 to 2004
