    I've been following the story today. This is the one line in the story that involves Miles; Player, "Coach, I don't have any transportation". Coach Miles, "I'll see what is available".

    That's it! Not, we have cars available for players or see this alum, he'll supply you with wheels. Heck, Les might have had the campus bus in mind.

    Tim, when was the last time you purchased a SI mgaizine that didn't have a girl wearing a tiny bikini on the cover? I thought so. When was the last time you have gone to thier website other than to look at the girls in tiny bikini videos? I thought so. SI just isn't what it was 25-30 years ago. ESPN has killed them financially and with readership/viewers.

You will see a dismantling and ill bet you a dollar to a doughnut that they end up at the least, in the middle of the SEC pack. A joke.
    Well, you might have made a statement, but that doesn't hold much water. I can say I'm a billionaire, but my account will not reflect that. Let me break this down for you. Oregon won't even win The PAC 10/12/14/16/whatever they are calling it today. I'm certain it'll be something different tomm. Did you watch the games @ all???? Do you know what the word you used implies???? It doesn't appear that you do. In any event, The SEC is The Conference & nothing you left coasters can say to debunk that simple fact, will do that. Let me see here, UT will finish no better than 4th in their division. They would be no better than 6th in The West. So if they lose big, which most predict they will, that will prove nothing. Oregon has proven that their gimmick offense doesn't win big games. Soooo, spin away. I'll be here the rest of the day.

    No need to hire a new coach. There's not a smoking gun. Slingblade, despite his asinine game time decisions, actually runs a good program. Is he my choice? No. He's one of 2 people who has what it takes to win a championship & never lose their mind or a ton of games. Urban Legend couldn't deal with The SEC year after year. St. Nick hasn't proven that he can. He's probably looking for a rebuilding gig. So I'll take him. He hires excellent assistant coaches & usually does a good job with coordinators.

    Part 1 of 5, that's all I'm saying at this point.

    "Fields disputed the credibility of the players quoted in the story. Five of those players were dismissed from Oklahoma State for various reasons."Anyone that played at OSU or is from Stillwater knows those guys [quoted] are not credible," Fields told McMurphy. "If you thought guys were getting paid, why not prominent players instead of backups and third-string guys?"

    Honesty and integrity something that is totally lacking from the suits at the ncaa, to the suits at the university collegiate level, to the coaches on the sidelines, to the players on the field. Step into the real world Wayne they are all corrupt. Wake up America. lol
