Frump Day Links: Curiously Creepy Cricket Fan Edition

March 9, 2011


Cricket hottie

Unfortunately, it was never quite this intense either...

We’ve missed a couple weeks of these, so it makes perfect sense that I’d wait for the week that B-Diddy’s in Kenya to bring it back.

Believe it or else, I’ve actually watched quite a bit of cricket in my day. That said, no test has ever been this intense (see what I did there?) [Sportress of Blogitude]

Cosby Sweaters offers the 10 Best Notorious B.I.G. songs of all time. I have nothing to offer on that myself, but I think there are at least a couple of Frumpsters that could offer a critique [Cosby Sweaters]

Believe it or else, when I wasn’t watching cricket many moons ago, I played quite a bit of badminton. We called it “shuttlecock,” but that’s a story for another day. Until then, just know that it too was never as intense as this [The Big Lead]

The one where some frat guy writes an incredibly long, absurdly misogynistic — and mildly humorous —  email, and some ladies act like it’s a leaked, highly classified internal U.S. Government memo documenting how its plan to institute a military-run police state over the next decade [Jezebel]

Hey, did you hear that UNC recruit Delvon Simmons wants out of his Letter of Intent? Who the hell could have seen that one coming? [StateFans Nation]

There’s a reason why soccer is primarily played with the feet. [Last Angry Fan]

Haven’t you always wanted to see faith healers do their work set to the soundtrack of classic fighting games (Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, etc.)? The answer to that is yes. [The Score]

Venus Williams: Good at tennis. Bad at karaoke [With Leather]

Bobby Knight comes to Jim Tressel’s inexcusable defense [Inside the Hall]

Did UNC’s hiring of Brian Baker, recruitment of Delvon Simmons violate even more NCAA regulations?

February 13, 2011


Was Brian Baker hired by UNC solely to land DT Blue Chip Delvon Simmons

***UPDATE MARCH 8th, 2011: Delvon Simmons has reportedly asked to be released from his LOI (Letter of Intent) to the University of North Carolina Tar Heels. Not entirely sure as to why, but I’m sure it all may or may not come out eventually…***

    ***UPDATE March 10th, 2011: UNC is reportedly refusing to release Simmons from his LOI. This could get interesting…***

The dark, tempestuous cloud of investigations looming over Chapel Hill’s Kenan Stadium apparently isn’t a menacing enough threat to the sanctity of Tar Heel football. In fact, it appears Butch Davis’ program still doesn’t shy away from spitting into the NCAA’s wind.

As you may recall, UNC landed a big prospect when McKeesport, Pennsylvania’s Delvon Simmons signed his Letter of Intent on February 2nd, 2011. It was quite a National Signing Day coup.

Why a coup? Well, the 6’5″, 265 pound defensive tackle (Rivals’ #5 DT, #80 overall; Scout’s #3 DT, #15 overall; ESPN’s #25 DT, NR overall) had actually eliminated the Tar Heels only a couple weeks prior and — adding to the enigma of it all — never took an official visit to Chapel Hill.

Simmons’ coach, Jim Ward, even chipped in with a great quote to make the matter that much more curious, and just hours before National Signing Day: “I can tell you that UNC has been added. We had a meeting behind closed doors, and that is all I can say. The rest stays there.
