How the Butkus Award Lost Credibility

November 24, 2010

3 Comments

The Butkus Award released it’s list of finalists today. One glaring issue I see is the lack of Nate Irving. I know, I know, I’m an NC State fan and therefore am subjected to bias. However, the stats just don’t add up on this one? You’ll see below that Nate should be the second favorite to win and definitely in the top 5.

Yahoo came out with the hardest hitting article yet concerning Heeloshima® last night. With it comes a cornucopia of things to talk about, but I want to focus on the hardest hitting fact included in the article…

Calipari Pushing Patrick Patterson Out the Door

April 8, 2010

10 Comments


John Calipari is at it again. In a trend that’s sure to become common practice at Kentucky, Coach Cal is setting the revolving door of players in motion. Just last week, Cal made sure everyone at the McDonald’s All-American game knew 5 players would be leaving early to turn pro. Yesterday, the school released a statement confirming that John Wall, Demarcus Cousins, Patrick Patterson, Daniel Orton, and Eric Bledsoe would in fact be leaving school early.

Unfortunately, this was news to Patrick Patterson and his family according to his mother.  Vaught’s Views ran a story with quotes from his mother:

“I found out UK released a statement saying Patrick and the four freshmen are leaving for the NBA and will declare for the draft,” said Tywanna Patterson Wednesday night. “I said, ‘Really, nobody told me.”

“I have a problem with it going out and not being official. It is his decision. He has not declared for the draft and once he does he can’t back out because he declared for the draft last year.”

Jogger Killed by Plane, #16 Seeds Receive Hope

March 17, 2010

2 Comments

Robert Gary Jones of Woodstock, Ga. was listening to his iPod and jogging in Hilton Head, SC when a small plane, attempting an emergency landing, landed on top of him killing him instantly.  We at Frumpzilla feel like there may be a case against Apple or heck even Sony regarding this situation.  If Sony and their blasted Walkman hadn’t revolutionized the way we run to music, Robert Gary Jones may still be with us.

My favorite part(read: saddest favorite part) about this story is that the pilot was asked for a comment, which he declined but instead said, “I’ve got a lot of issues going on right now. I’ve got a plane that’s all torn up. And I’ve got a young man that I killed”.  This jerk just landed on top of some poor guy and he’s initially worried about replacing his rudder.(there are rudders on planes right?)

What does this have to do with 16 seeds in the NCAA tournament you may ask?  Well, you can’t tell me there are better odds of a plane landing on you while jogging on the beach than there are of a #16 seed knocking off a #1.  True, no #16 has ever beaten a #1 but […]

Eastern Washington Red Field

Ok, I’m a fan of red as much as the next guy, but this is just crossing all sorts of lines.  After seeing the success a school like Boise St. has had after installing a blue field, Eastern Washington has decided to go ahead with making their turf red.

“There is no doubt that one of Boise State’s claims to fame has been their blue turf and like it or dislike it, it has certainly brought them a tremendous amount of notoriety,” EWU athletic director Bill Chaves said.

Wayne Ellington Lived the Life at UNC

Wayne Ellington

Well, either he did(he did.) or his parents did(they did.)! 

I was sent this link recently.  While I understand it’s a link to http://carolinasucks.com and not http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/ like the design would want you to believe, and the images may be fabricated, the facts behind them do not seem to be fabricated.  The images claim that a $400k abode is the residence of Wayne Ellington Sr., the father of the former UNC bball player(06-09).  I don’t quite have the resources to look up Mr. Ellington’s profession or what he was worth before his son made it to the NBA.  I’m not trying to argue whether or not he could afford such a house while his son was in school(before he made money for bball).  I am wondering why the house was(is) owned by James A. Mason Jr. who was a former Morehead scholar at UNC and is now a prominant businessman in Chapel Hill.  Mason Jr. is a founding member of Parish Capital, who has very stong ties to Keenan-Flagler, UNC’s business school.  They’re even part of the Carolina Venture Fellows program.  I’m sure Roy and UNC did a good job of making sure Mason Jr. himself did not donate to the athletic program, but it’s hard to deny these ties seem to be a conflict of interest. 

Frump it on for pictures and links that lead me to these conclusions.

Is Roy Williams Austrian??!?!

Roy Williams True Identity

So I realize that I’m a few days late with this post but if you haven’t noticed, we’ve taken some time away from the site and come back with some aesthetic changes!  All things considered, I believe this is a better late than never situation.  You see, I hate UNC Chapel Hell with all my being.  I feel they have an arrogance about them that just frustrates the crap out of me….words cannot describe the hatred.  This is why I was so happy when this arrogance was put on a pedestal for all the nation to see this past weekend.

During a blowout win for Roy Williams’ basketball team against lowly Presbyterian College, the almighty coach had an opposing fan removed from the premesis for yelling at one of his players during a free throw.  I know what you’re thinking, that kind of penalty must have been earned by yelling a vulgar or (even worse)racist comment at a player during a key moment in the game.  That would’ve been a non-story.  Instead, all this fan did was yell “Hey Deon, don’t miss it!” to Deon Thompson during a free throw with 6:45 left to play in a 103-64 drumming.  The free throw was made and Roy turns to the fan and says, “Why don’t you shut up! Yeah, I’m talking to you!”.  He then gets the attention of his rent-a-cops and motions towards the fan, who is then dragged from his seat without a chance to find out why or show his ticket to the henchmen. 

In an instance of EXTREME IRONY, Coach Williams said after the game “Let’s don’t make it a bigger thing than it is. But I just don’t think anybody should yell negative things toward our players (when) you come in on our tickets to watch our game.”  So if we take him at his word, no fan should ever cheer against his team when you’re in the dean dome, otherwise you will be removed.  With this logic I hope every true blue douche-nozzle that shouts at the opposing team during away games gets dragged out kicking and screaming.

To make matters worse for this Presby fan, unc’s SID tried to spin the situation in typical fashion by defacing his name and claiming he was intoxicated and in the wrong seat.  However the fan was later interviewed and disputed both claims.  I hope this guy is lawyered up or better yet, I hope every opposing ACC team finds a way to get him a ticket behind unc’s bench this season to continue this drama.

Click the Frump to see video of this ENTIRE incident as well as hitler’s roy’s press conference after the game.  As a bonus, there’s also a video of hilarity ensuing after a unc loss to Maryland.  You’ll see crying and disappointment, and if you listen closely, you’ll even hear a unc fan yelling “Go Back to the Ghetto!!” to one of the Maryland players.  I guess that’s alright though since it wasn’t directed at one of roy’s players.

Baby.  Unborn.  Already Brilliant!

November 21, 2008

So, in case you haven’t noticed, some of us are a wee bit pumped up for the rivalry game tomorrow between State and carolina.  I am no different.  The douches are favored and “should” win this game, but that doesn’t faze me.  I have a good feeling about the game.  You know who else has a good feeling about the game??  Unborn baby fetuses! (or is it feti?)  Below is a picture I found here.  It shows an unborn child already supporting the school it will undoubtedly follow through good and bad(mostly bad…sorry little guy/gal, it’s an uphill battle).  I take this as a good sign, GO WOLFPACK!!

babies are so cute at that age

 

More youtubage of The Pack after the jump!
