CLEMSON, S.C.Clemson University’s president and students are outraged over a controversial party held Saturday night.

The gang-themed gathering led to the suspension of a fraternity’s officers, and university officials say more suspensions are possible.

Saturday night, several students sent pictures of the party to WYFF News4 over social media. They were speaking out against a party called “#ClemsonCripmas.”

Pictures from the party showed students dressed up in gang apparel.

Clemson students also used social media to rally a protest over the party at the university president’s house Sunday morning.

Late Sunday night, Clemson officials told WYFF News4′s Mike McCormick that the university’s Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter members, their alumni advisory board and the national headquarters decided to suspend all activity indefinitely. According to a statement from the university, the ‘inappropriate theme party’ was organized by several of the fraternity’s members at a private, off-campus home.

Most of the fraternity chapter’s officers have resigned from their positions and have been suspended from the organization, according to the statement.

University officials said any member who attended the party may face suspension as well, pending the results of an internal investigation.

 

 

Little bit confused about what we’re outraged at here.  Offending…gang members?  Is it bad to hurt the feelings of gang members now?   I mean nobody is in black face.  Didn’t see a single painted black face in all the pictures on Twitter and Instagram.  That’s the line that you can’t cross and it doesn’t seem like anybody did.

Then there’s this statement from the President of the school.

 

At a time of year when our thoughts are turning to family, holidays and the start of a new year – all the things that unite us and bring us joy — it is discouraging that so many events and issues are causing division and hurt, and making many students feel unwanted at this great university. It hurts to read disrespectful and just plain mean comments in social media. Last night’s “Cripmas” party, which the university did not sanction, raised more concerns about the campus climate. Clemson is better than this.

Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion about events in Ferguson, Staten Island and the protest rallies that those events have spawned. Great universities are built on the free expression and exploration of ideas. But the free expression of opinion must not cross the line and become harassment or intimidation, just as rallies and protest marches must not cross the line to lawlessness.

Our core values – honesty, integrity and respect – must be more than just words. I plan to host a series of events in early 2015 to foster productive discussion and unity that includes a broad segment of the campus – and I hope that I can count on your active participation.

 

Wait Ferguson?  What?  Are they trying to imply a fraternity costume party is some sort of Ferguson and Garner counter-movement?  Kind of reaching there.   Not to mention the Clemson president is basically free associating black people with gang culture which is way more offensive than dumbass college kids in bandanas, but whatever.  The moral of the story as always is you just can’t do this shit anymore.  Can’t do the theme parties even remotely bordering on race.  Because you will get blown up on social media,  you will be witchhunted by the internet, and you will be suspended and/or kicked off campus forever.  Unless it’s Golf Pros and Tennis Hoes, nobody will care about that one.

 

 

 

PS – Public shaming. Now this is how you educate!

A Barstool U Tradition…Ranking The Best and Worst College Football Bowl Swag of 2014

http%3A%2F%2Fbarstoolu.barstoolsports.com%2Frandom-thoughts%2Fa-barstool-u-tradition-ranking-the-best-and-worst-college-football-bowl-swag-of-2014%2F

Sports Business Daily 

 

 

It’s Bowl Season which means two things – big time football games and a shit ton of free swag handed out to the players that won’t result in loss of eligibility and year long suspensions. Gift suites, gadgets, gift cards, the newest tech, apparel. Time to take our annual dive into all the items and pick out the absolute trash that’s being offered up to our favorite D1 athletes disguised as “gifts.” Here’s the good stuff, and the worst of the worst, the stuff that will make even the most dedicated team player wonder why he didn’t sign with one of the squads getting iPad Minis and PS4s…

 

 

The Good Stuff 

 

6) Chick Fil A Gift Card (Peach Bowl)

 

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 11.25.00 AM

 

 

Pretty self explanatory.  Chick Fil A is crack.  Sure they have bigoted ownership and don’t open on Sundays but facts are facts, it’s absolutely fire fast food.  The perfect gift for a college kid.  Had one right in the middle of Emory campus, combine that with a parentally funded meal card and what we had was a 2 chicken sandwich + waffle fries lunch 5 days a week.

 

 

5) Tori Richard Aloha Shirt (Hawaii Bowl)

 

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 11.25.54 AM

 

There’s continental US fashion and then there’s Hawaii fashion, bottom line is if you’re flying across the ocean to play a game in paradise, this is the perfect wardrobe staple.    When in Rome do as the Romans do, when in Hawaii wear an obnoxiously colored and patterned short sleeve button down.  If you’re not hitting the bars at night in a Hawaiian shirt you basically don’t even know how to be a tourist.

 

4) Xbox One (Military Bowl)

 

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 11.26.10 AM

 

 

 

 

The Military Bowl gets it.  Everyone else is doling out t-shirts and hats and shit all made by cheap labor in sweatshops, costs like 1 cent to produce and you can hand them out like candy at no real cost.  But an Xbox One, that’s some serious shit.  That’s an actual quality gift.  That and Chick Fil A are right up at the top of perfect gifts to give to college students – fast food and video games.  Throw in a sack of weed and we’re onto something.

 

 

3) GoPro Hero4 (Alamo Bowl)

 

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 11.26.35 AM

 

 

Never used a GoPro and have no idea when I’d ever have a reason to in my boring ass life, but all I know is you wear one of these things around a party and hot chicks just automatically start making out with each other and showing their boobs.

 

 

 

 

Any beaches in San Antonio?  What about a pool maybe?  K State and UCLA players need to throw these on and find one stat.

 

 

 

2) Coleman Chair (GoDaddy Bowl)

 

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 11.25.19 AM

 

 

 

Such a sneakily awesome gift.  One of those things you don’t ever think about and never even consider but when the situation calls for it you’re the smartest guy in group.  Sports games, tailgates, basically anywhere you’re going to be stationary.   What’s the worst thing ever?  Standing.  Boom, pull out a comfy ass chair in a handy compact sleeve.  Sure fancy tech gadgets are cool but a folding Coleman chair is a big time utility, something I can appreciate.

 

 

 

1) Custom Made Fathead of Every Player (Quick Lane Bowl) 

 

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 11.35.52 AM

 

 

Ok this is just awesome.  Showing up to your Bowl and getting a gigantic wall sized blown up sticker of your face.   That’s how you know you’ve made it.

 

 

The Worst

 

 

7) Mighty Boom Ball Speakers (Military Bowl)

 

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 11.55.24 AM

 

Mainly because when I searched to find out what they were and get a picture it turns out they are discontinued.

 

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 11.20.26 AM

 

So either 1) these speaker don’t exist anymore or 2) you now know the ones you receive are all the extra leftover ones they couldn’t sell to anybody.  Which by definition alone means this gift sucks.

 

6) Ohio Backpack (Idaho Potato Bowl)

 

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 11.27.07 AM

 

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 1.59.18 PM

 

 

 

 

Truth be told I don’t know what this is.  I mean I assumed “Ohio” was a brand that I just wasn’t familiar with.  Like for hikers or outdoorsmen or something?  I know Eastpack, Jansports, Herschel, never heard of Ohio.  But when I googled it nothing came up except literal Ohio backpacks.  Like for the state of Ohio.

 

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 11.26.58 AM

 

 

Oh and all Ohio State bags.  Which I’m assuming Western Michigan and Air Force players don’t want.

 

 

5) Belt Buckle (Texas Bowl)

 

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 11.27.26 AM

 

 

Sneaky my favorite worst gift of all last year because of the fact the Texas Bowl was Syracuse vs. Minnesota.  Basically the two most un-South places that would have no idea how to even put a belt buckle on let alone actually wear one out in public.  Good news at least is that this year the Texas Bowl is Arkansas vs. Texas.  Those rednecks might actually appreciate a good solid belt buckle.  Show up to the bar on horseback, lasso some groupies and drag them back to the hotel with some solid 10 pounds of silver on your waist.

 

 

4) Fossil Watch (multiple bowls)

 

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 11.28.17 AM

 

 

Attention all 6th and 7th graders getting ready for the Friday Night school dance/playing in college football bowl games, have we got a gift for you!  Listen I don’t mean to be a snob or anything, to each their own, but once you head out of high school it’s time to update your watch game to the next level.  Obviously not saying run out and buy a Breitling but like, let’s at least  up our shit to a big boy brand, not the first metal watch we all owned in middle school.

The good news is that this is just a throw in for a bunch of bowls, along with other stuff like gift cards and headphones etc.  Unfortunately the same can’t be said for the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl which is the most depressing sight these eyes have ever seen:

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 11.14.30 AM

 

 

That’s it.

 

 

3) Shopping Trip to Belk (Belk Bowl)

 

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 11.31.04 AM

 

Never been to a Belk.  Learned last year that it’s some sort of department store.  Which means the gift is basically you have to go to a store and go shopping?  Wonder if you can bring your girlfriend too, maybe pick up some Starbucks and Fro Yo on the way and make a day of it?

Online shopping or GTFO.

 

2) Gildan Blanket (New Mexico Bowl)

 

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 11.27.39 AM

 

 

 

 

Unless it comes wrapped around a butt naked perfect 10 groupie, nobody wants this shit.  Real men don’t use blankets.

 

 

And the reigning #1, two time champion…

 

1) Helen of Troy Hair Dryer (Sun Bowl)

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 11.33.27 AM

 

 

This was #1 last year, and I really have no choice but to leave it at the bottom.   Just a horrible horrible gift that makes no sense whatsoever.  Write up from last year still applies perfectly to this year too:

Kind of feel like I’m getting trolled with this.   Can’t be real right?  A hair dryer for a bunch of testosterone filled men.   Maybe they just figured since every UCLA Arizona State player has a smoking hot girlfriend they could re-gift it for some extra post-game pussy?  Only explanation.

 

Although maybe the Duke guys will like it.

Remember when Kendall Jenner got attacked by that transgender model for taking away jobs from all the “hard working” models out there? This is Exhibit A as to why that lady could have had the most heartbreaking story about rising up from poverty, fighting off critics and large jungle animals, and saving all the children on Earth while curing cancer through her work in front of a camera and I would still be Team Kendall all the way. Did you know what Love Magazine was before today? It’s safe to assume none of us did. But here I am watching their video, going to their website, and generally feeling like the world is just a bit sunnier because Kendall Jenner was kind enough to prance around with them cheeks out for an hour on their behalf. Vacuous, talentless, undeserving of fame, who cares? If I can enjoy Twinkies, pop music, and other ultimately valueless things with no artistic or cultural merits, I can have room in my life for Kendall Jenner, too. God Bless America.

 

 

Also FYI the music on this video isn’t actually screwed up to avoid copyright infringement on Vimeo, that’s just Kendall Jenner giving you a stroke. You might want to go to a doctor ASAP, your brain is leaking out of your ear drums as we speak.

Ohio State Makes The Four Team Playoff; What This Means For College Football

As you no doubt have seen by now, Ohio State made the Four Team playoff over Baylor and TCU, which is pretty revealing for a number of reasons. I think this decision tells us exactly what the playoff committee is, and what we can expect from them in the future. Here’s what this decision tells us:

-Lobbying and internal politics are going to matter. The Big 10 as an organization threw themselves behind Ohio State all week to be given a spot if they beat Wisconsin convincingly. As they should have. That was the smart thing to do. Art Briles was literally arguing with the Big 12 Commissioner on the field Saturday night because he felt like the conference wasn’t putting enough of it’s weight behind Baylor. Baylor had to independently hire a PR Firm for chrissakes because no one from the conference was doing anything to help them with the committee. So if you think the committee is completely independent/won’t be influenced by lobbying and the usual politicking of college football, that just isn’t the case. Conferences are going to have to position their teams in the best possible way to the committee members and media.

-Brand names matter. If Minnesota, or Maryland, or some other lesser known B1G team has Ohio State’s exact resume, they’re not in the Four Team playoff. If Oklahoma or Texas have either TCU or Baylor’s exact resume, they’re playing for the National Championship. But all things being equal, big time programs generate big time revenue, and Ohio State moves the needle a lot more than either Baylor or TCU do. It’s just the nature of the business in college football, and if you don’t think that business factored into this decision at all, you probably think that companies do charity efforts out of the goodness of their hearts and that you really are the best you’re girlfriend has ever had. Ohio State over Baylor and TCU is a huge part a business decision, in a sport that has always been in large part shaped by business. I ain’t mad at it.

 

-All the prior rankings mean nothing. It’s just television drama for ESPN. If they meant something, TCU being ranked #3 and then winning big the following week would have booked their ticket to play Oregon or Alabama. The media narratives around each team were better predictors of who was going to make the playoff than the rankings were. Just ignore them.

 

-Body of work is less important than who is the best team RIGHT NOW. I don’t doubt that Ohio State could be one of the best four teams in the country right now. Based on what I saw last night, terrible as Wisconsin is, they probably would beat TCU or Baylor on a neutral field. And if that’s how you think the playoff should be judged, by who are the best four teams at this exact moment, then Ohio State was most likely the correct decision. But it’s pretty inarguable TCU has a better overall body of work than Ohio State. They each beat a handful of decent teams, except TCU lost in the fourth-quarter to top-1o Baylor while Ohio State lost to a .500 team. Even with a conference championship, you can’t tell me that Ohio State’s overall season has been as impressive as TCU’s. You just can’t. The committee is going to value who is playing well RIGHT NOW. A great criteria if someone was trying to, I don’t know, incentivize teams to schedule tough out-of-conference games early in the season in order to generate more television revenue/exposure for the sport, and not have to worry about one (or possibly two) early season losses.

 

So at the end of the day, that’s what this decision means. Pretty good indicator of what the direction of what the college football playoff is going to be for at least a few years. Call me cynical, but knowing a lot of decisions are going to come down to business doesn’t really bother me. College football has essentially been professionalizing itself for a few decades now (except of course, the whole paid labor part), and the sport has only gotten better and better over time, so who cares? All I want is that Alabama-Oregon National Championship that fans have been waiting for for the past 5 years anyway.

 

PS: If the name Cardale Jones seemed familiar last night and you were wondering why you knew a Third-string QB’s name, he still holds the belt for the greatest/funniest athlete tweet of all-time.

Nick Saban’s Argyle Pimp Sweater Presents…Barstool College Football Roundup: Championship Week Edition

http%3A%2F%2Fbarstoolu.barstoolsports.com%2Frandom-thoughts%2Fnick-sabans-argyle-pimp-sweater-presents-barstool-college-football-roundup-championship-week-edition%2F
Dec 810:10AM EST

It’s been a great year of College Football roundups, here’s Nick Saban applauding the work I’ve put into it all year:

 

SabanClap

 

 

Anyway we’re finally here, near the end of the road, Championship Week in the books so let’s get into the games and all their consequences.

 

 

The moment everyone was waiting for…the official College Football Playoff bracket unveiled.

 

Screen Shot 2014-12-07 at 12.48.10 PM

 

 

After a few weeks of TCU vs. Baylor bickering over who deserved the last spot, the committee settled the beef by putting neither in.  Cold blooded.  I got to say though I don’t really have problem with it.   Gun to head I would say TCU deserved the 4 spot, but I’m not going to argue against Ohio State.  Their one loss came so long ago I can barely remember the game, they’re clicking on all cylinders, just annihilated a solid Wisconsin team on national TV.

Fact is all 3 teams have/would have a legitimate gripe and strong argument about not getting in, and it all comes down to who you’re a fan of or who you support to decide who is right and who is wrong.

 

 

You got your wish, Ohio State.

 

 

 

One question for you though – does Saban looks scared?

 

Screen Shot 2014-12-07 at 12.48.18 PM

 

 

Ahh, Saturday, back when Baylor was so innocent and full of hope.

 

BAYLORJUMP BAYLORJUMP2

 

 

Would have been cool to see that on the sideline of a championship game, but alas, Condoleeza hated it.

 

 

And also on Saturday, TCU thinking they had their spot basically locked up, no chance they didn’t make it right, not with their offense on fire running trick plays all over that bitch.

 

TCUTRICK

 

 

 

I mean who could possibly knock them off?  An Ohio State team with THIS guy as their QB?  Ha, you think he picked up the playbook?

Highlights of the OSU/Wisco game later that night in case you missed it….NSFW for Wisconsin fans.

 

 

 

Note to Wisco fans – invest in a QB that ain’t come to play school.

 

 

 

Live look at every Baylor and TCU fan’s heart, soul and spirit at 1 PM Sunday:

 

           

 

     

Anyway speaking of the champions, pretty sure we found the champion of ballboys for the year. Red Lightning, sup pussy?  

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s check in on Kiffin real quick, yup, still an offensive guru.

 

 

     

 

 

Seriously that one was like 0.003 seconds after the snap left the center’s hand.   Very, very cool gesture by Michael Bennett wearing Kosta Karageorge’s #53 for the game.  

 

 

 

  Screen Shot 2014-12-07 at 5.01.20 PM    

 

 

 

 

The ACC championship started off with a bang, and by a bang I mean, with a ton of firework smoke that ruined everyone’s time and took like 20 minutes to clear out.  

 

 

 

  Screen Shot 2014-12-07 at 5.02.07 PM Screen Shot 2014-12-07 at 5.02.24 PM  

 

 

 

Has to be a metaphor for the ACC or something at the very least.     #BlameJameis

 

 

This stadium employee couldn’t believe the beatdown going on either.

 

 

  SEC-GUARD    

 

 

 

Not really any champions involved in the SMU/UConn game, but SMU deserves a shout out for their first win of the year. Better late than never! Oh and they had no idea how to do the victory formation.

 

 

 

 

 

That’s the moment you know for sure that your season was a total shitshow. When you get flagged for illegal formation doing a kneel down.

 

 

 

Oklahoma/Oklahoma State game kind of snuck under the radar Saturday, Tyreek Hill sending it to overtime with a 92 yard punt return with 1 minute left was the highlight if you missed it.

 

 

OKST

 

Then won it with a field goal in OT.

 

 

Note for Matty Mauk, forget about the pocket passing bullshit – if that game taught us one thing, you’re at your best scrambling out of the pocket and chucking up off balance prayers.

Stadium Cops Put A Billy Club Beatdown on Fan at the Pac-12 Championship For Walking Down The Wrong Pathway

The ducks game was great tonight, but I also witnessed and recorded this incident. The man getting struck by the police officer with the baton was there with his son and tried to go down the wrong pathway. The police had a tazer out right before I started to record. I’m not sure anyone else has footage of this incident.

 

 

Props to this guy for giving fans something to be excited about at the Pac 12 Championship.  Nothing like a little Mariota Heisman performance + gang cop beatdown to make it a memorable night.

Anyway it’s always tough to judge these videos without seeing everything that led up to it .  Like as easy as it is to pile on cops for excessive force and police brutality from a quick 2 minute clip, we’re also all just taking one person’s word for it on Facebook.  Don’t know if there was any shoving, spitting, fighting etc right before the camera started rolling.  I mean do you need like 6 cops with billy clubs and tasers out for this one guy?  Do you need to whack him in the back of the kneecaps in the Karate Kid sweet spot when he’s not looking for walking down a wrong pathway?  Probably not.  But also as an objective observer I’d have to disagree with the dudes yelling into the camera that he wasn’t fighting back – not like he was going down peacefully either.   Yeah maybe you feel like you’re being wrongfully charged here, but when you see the batons out and taser prongs aimed at your chest, nothing good is gonna happen by hunkering down with a low center of gravity and shoving cops off your arms.  Just let them take you in peacefully then sue the shit out of everyone later, that’s the American way.

 

 

 

PS – Worst cops ever?  No not because of the possible brutality – I mean literally, at their jobs, the worst.  Dude it’s one guy.  You need the whole department to get one guy to his knees?  Bet everybody feels real safe in the case that there’s an actual threat there to needs to be subdued.
