With Kanye, Bronson, Chance and Cudi holding down the hip-hop front and Major Lazer and The Chainsmokers dropping pure electro filth it’s been a solid week for new music indeed.

Alabama – A member of a University of Alabama sorority was released from her organization and will be referred to the Office of Student Conduct after allegedly sending a Snapchat containing a racial slur on Wednesday evening.
The Snapchat, a screenshot of which was obtained by The Crimson White, contains a photo of what appears to be a power point presentation congratulating Nu Beta, the University of Alabama chapter of Chi Omega sorority. The member included the caption, “Off probation n—-!”
“The University of Alabama is extremely disappointed when any student uses language that is disrespectful or offensive to any segment of the UA community,” said Deborah Lane, associate vice president for university relations, in an emailed statement to The Crimson White. “Behavior, actions and choices that disparage other students are particularly reprehensible and do not represent the values or meet the expectations of our University community.”
Pop quiz. What happens when you make national news for sending a Snapchat with the N word in it?
Incorrect, you don’t stop doing it forever. You do it all over again the next semester! Shockingly with the same results too.
And no I don’t think the actual use here is that bad, she obviously didn’t mean it as a slur directed towards someone in particular. I certainly wouldn’t call her a racist or anything. But you gotta know that in today’s climate using that word, no matter how you use it, is going to get you kicked out of something 1000 times out of 1000. That was part 1 of the dumb move. Part 2 was how do you possibly send a Snap with the N word in it to someone who could be offended enough by it to screenshot it and report it? That’s just horrible judgement. Gotta know which friends are cool with N bomb slang and which ones are going running to the dean.

I Hope This Ohio U Student Wins His Court Case Suing The School For Suspending Him Because He Ran Some Game On A Female Classmate
(Doubt the guy in question is this yolked. Arm veins for days oh my)
ATHENS, Ohio – A student in Ohio is suing the university that suspended him after he sent dozens of text messages to a female classmate, including some making sexual advances. Ohio University suspended 20-year-old Michael Marshall for one semester this year after saying that he broke its rules against sexual misconduct. A university panel found that Marshall made the woman uncomfortable and disrupted her ability to focus on academics.
The federal lawsuit filed this week says the university violated Marshall’s free speech rights. Ohio University isn’t commenting on the lawsuit. Marshall’s attorney tells The Columbus Dispatch that the honors student could have used better judgment in sending some of the texts, but he also says that Marshall stopped texting the woman once the university told him to stop.
Is this the most unnecessary suspension of all time? I think it might be. Duh, of course this college kid was trying to run game on this girl. That’s what college kids do. They try to fuck by any means. You know the best way to not have someone annoy you via texts? You don’t give them your phone number in the first place. Once you do, you’ve opened up pandoras box. You can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube as they say. Because make no mistake, men are savages. It’s not our greatest quality but it’s in our DNA. If you’re a hot girl and you show even the slightest amount of interest or basic human decency towards us, we automatically assume that there’s a possibility of fucking. I’m not saying it’s right, I’m just saying its the way God made us. Sorry for our innate desire to procreate and keep the world populated. That used to be called romance.
That’s what a lot of hot girls don’t understand. Like everything in life, it’s a double edged sword. You get to be hot and enjoy the free drinks and the privilege of being fawned over and the center of attention everywhere you go. But the flip side of that is you’re going to get creeps. It’s a sheer numbers game. For every quarterback of the football team that wants to date you, there’s a million ugly animals that want a piece of you as well. And us ugly guys have to try about 3 million times harder. Hence the dozen text messages. I’m not going to defend this kid if he was truly harassing her, but the fact that he stopped texting her when he was told to says to me that he was just some sucker trying to play out of his league. And you’re going to strike out pretty damn often when you’re used to the pitching machine and now you’re trying to hit Pedro in his prime. But you’ve got to at least go down swinging. So if there’s a guy out there who can’t sympathize with this poor sap trying to bag a girl that’s way too hot for him then your life is probably infinitely better than mine and I hate you.
P.S. My official boycott of all matters Ohio University is effective immediately. Your move, OU.
You do layups line and show off your fancy dunks for the crowd, Wisconsin practices diving for loose balls. Bo Ryan playing chess.
Does anyone have an explanation for the Minnesota court by the way? Like, for example, why the hell it’s raised so far off the ground? Is there some sort of benefit I don’t know about that outweighs the risk of players breaking all the bones in their lower bodies? Seems like player safety might be a little more important than some sort of historical nostalgia.
ESPN – The NCAA on Friday has suspended Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim for nine conference games and has taken away scholarships as a result of a multiyear investigation into the university’s athletic programs.
Syracuse’s penalties also include a five-year probation and for the school to vacate all wins in which ineligible men’s basketball students played in 2004-05, 2005-06, 2006-07, 2010-11 and 2011-12 and ineligible football students played in 2004-05, 2005-06 and 2006-07.
“Over the course of a decade, Syracuse University did not control and monitor its athletics programs,” the NCAA said in a statement, “and its head men’s basketball coach failed to monitor his program.”
The NCAA said that the violation, which were self-reported by Syracuse and dated back to 2001, included academic misconduct, extra benefits, the failure to follow its drug testing policy and impermissible booster activity.
Other violations included impermissible academic assistance and services, the head basketball coach’s failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance and monitor his staff, and the school’s lack of control over its athletics program.
Live look at Jim Boeheim failing to monitor:
All in all, a pretty light penalty for Cuse. They already banned themselves from this year’s postseason which successfully satisfied the NCAA, they already have a monster recruiting class coming in. Considering we’re talking about “multiple infractions” over and EIGHT YEAR period, I think the Orange will take it. Academic misconduct, impermissible benefits, not drug testing, gifts from boosters – all for close to a decade. Hey remember when Bruce Pearl lost his job for having a cookout? Lol NCAA.
YouTube – Of course the kill was intentional!! I accurately predicted the spawn of the player after I killed him for the first time, knew exactly where he was positioned when he shot at me and therefore deliberately ricocheted the bullet of three surfaces to take him out, it was very simple really!
I’m an overly competitive bag of shit so I love everything about this. Love that the guy not only hit the shot and is jokingly pretending he did it intentionally, love how absolutely LIVID the other guy must have been after dying like this, and love how insanely overproduced the video is with the dramatic music and slow mo path of the bullet to really rub it in the guy’s face after the fact. I’d never watch competitive video gaming even though they’re acting like it’s an actual sport these days — spoiler alert: if a fat guy who can’t walk up ten steps without gasping for air can do it, it’s not a sport — but a video like this? All in on it every single time.
For the record if I was the blue guy in this I’d never play Halo again. Losing is one thing, losing like that? Full on “This is BULLSHIT, fuck this game” mode 10 times out of 10.
Fox Sports - The last time we saw Baylor’s LaQuan McGowan, teammate Antwan Goodley was (sort of) attempting to lift him into the air. This is notable because McGowan, at 410 pounds, outweighs Goodley by almost 200 pounds.
The 6-foot-7 McGowan caught a 19-yard touchdown pass in the Cotton Bowl, leading to the celebration with Goodley, but Baylor is hoping for an encore soon. McGowan is working at tight end and H-back for the Bears in spring practice.
“We’re looking at him as kind of a slot and tight end type of guy,” Baylor coach Art Briles told reporters on Tuesday. “He can certainly help us in the run game in those situations. The way we’re looking at it is we’ve got three games in nonconference to kind of feel it out and see what he can do and teach him what to do in live action.”
Quarterback Seth Russell sounds like a fan of the move, too.
“His hands are about as big as my leg, so I can pretty much put it wherever, and he can snag it out of the air,” Russell said.
The first word of McGowan’s bio on the Baylor website is still “enormous” and for fans of unorthodox touchdowns, the news is enormous, too.
“The hardest thing is practicing with him, because we don’t want to get anyone injured,” Briles said.
What the hell does Baylor feed these kids? Feel like their practice sessions are like cattle farms, just lined with troughs full of raw beef and HGH. I mean how else do you end up with 410 pound athletic tight ends/H backs with soft hands and light feet?
How else do you get something like this?
It’s crazytown down there in Waco, like their entire team is made out of Create A Players. Championship or bust.
