Is Justice a Two-Headed Coin?

11

AC Leonard was arrested for beating on his girlfriend one week before FSU's James Wilder Jr. was arrested for touching a police officer (resisting without violence). Both players plead guilty and were sentenced this week. The sentences? Matching six months probation and a fine for each, but Wilder gets nine days at a work camp and must write a letter of apology to the officer he touched. Meanwhile, Leonards only stipulation is that he continue participating in anger management classes. That's right. CONTINUE. Where is Batman when you need him?

Chris Singleton Gets A Shoe Deal!!!

4

Seriously. This is not a joke! Check out the release: You know Spalding as the world’s largest basketball equipment supplier. Now, the brand has added a trio of young NBAers to serve as brand ambassadors. Sacramento Kings rookie Jimmer Fredette, Miami Heat guard Mario Chalmers and Washington Wizards rookie Chris Singleton will each wear newly licensed Spalding sneakers this season. In addition to supporting Spalding’s existing basketball and equipment product line, the three athletes will also support the launch of a new licensed shoe and lifestyle apparel line that further expands the brand’s consumer footprint. As part of the brand’s 2012 campaign, the trio of rising stars will appear in digital and print advertising as well as in-store signage. They will also wear the new Spalding signature shoe during game time. The three also join Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce, a long-standing Spalding ambassador of basketballs and equipment. "We are very pleased to announce that three young rising stars in the game, Jimmer Fredette, Mario Chalmers, and Chris Singleton, will be key members of our team," added Gary Barfield, executive vice president, Russell Brands, LLC, the parent company of Spalding. "Not only are these players exciting to watch on the court, but they share Spalding’s values of teamwork, determination and all that is true to the game. They will help showcase Spalding and help us lead an even larger consumer audience to be part of Spalding’s tradition of innovation." Congrats Chris!!!

FSU Basketball ranked 17th in the latest poll

10

With this ranking going into the championship week, FSU should have at least a 4-seed locked up with a win Friday and good showing in the semi's against Duke (regardless of win). Winning the ACC and going through Duke and UNC will probably get us a 3-seed. We can assume a 4-seed because while Murray State, Wichita State, St. Mary's, Creighton and UNLV are ranked higher or near us (and in RPI), historically the selection committee has not given that high a seeding to teams of this nature. Prime example is Murray St. (30-1), ranked #10 in the polls, is currently projected as a 6-seed.

FSU's New Kickoff Strategy? A Mathematical Approach

ESPN Magazine $3 per yr w/ Insider

This does not have a lot to do with FSU Football, but I figured it could help a lot of TN readers who don't but would like to have ESPN Insider to read some of their recruiting posts, etc. I have taken advantage of similar deals in the past and that is how I get Insider as well. Note: You will have to wait for your first subscription to arrive to sign up for Insider on Espn's website using your account #, which will be printed on the address barcode of your first (and every) magazine. PPS: I will delete this thread when it expires (will be probably be later tonight)

'Nole Injury Updates

The rumor is that the decision to hold out Jones another week will depend on his performance in practice today. Hopefully he is able to work in full contact without a hindrance as we will need him against Miami Datko finally took a full day in practice and did reportedly well. He will continue to be monitored and Jimbo has said he will not make a decision until Thursday, but felt Datko was in a good position to come back this week. Mister Alexander reportedly did well in a noncontact practice yesterday, and will be in full contact today despite his concussion on Saturday. This is welcome news as he has played extremely well this year and would be very sorely missed for UM. Also here is another story with some more info

Solomon Alabi passed over in First Round of NBA Draft

43

Drafted 50th overall to Dallas in the 2nd round, and promptly traded to Toronto. Much controversy still surrounds his reasoning for coming out, and his draft day plummet shows how the League really feels about big guys who don't play like big guys. Regardless, we wish him the best, and hope that someone can put some dirt in his grits (thank you JV football). A mean streak could literally make him millions. On a side note, the man we wished could be DNA-spliced into Alabi's body, Ryan Reid, was picked up by Toronto as the 57th overall. Very surprising there.

The Future of College Football?

I just read this in about 5 minutes, but it really opened my eyes to where the NCAA is headed. Do you think that College Football as we know it will hit this major evolution, beginning in June 2010? What are the possibilities of the ACC?

For your viewing pleasure: Meet the coaches and the recruits. And maybe a few Cuban's making sandals. Either way, this press conference was one to remember. I think most of us have a new favorite asst. coach, and the ones we already loved continue to delight us(perhaps more after a few drinks?). Its a great day to be a NOLE!!!
