Quack Fix: Alex Rovello, SEC Rule Changes, and Media Speculation

New, comments

Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.

  • For the latest in media speculation regarding Willie Lyles and his relationship to Oregon, we turn to the KVOS TV out of Vancouver who likens Oregon's success to a shooting star that could burn out too early. I love articles like this because they say things like "it's plausible that Kelly could end up in what could be a long unemployment line of line of former standout coaches". Sigh.
  • The RG has a feature on tennis player Alex Rovello as he prepares for the Pacific Continental Bank Open tennis championship. If he does end up winning the tournament, he can only accept the $2500 prize money to cover "tournament expenses".  
  • I missed something in these long summer months without football. Apparently the SEC changed their rules regarding acceptance of transfers with 1 year of eligibility remaining. The article references the conference getting a "black eye" over the Masoli situation but I'm not sure I agree with that. It was obviously a loophole in the rules but I don't think too many people cared about the violation of the spirit of the rules in that case. The quote at the end of the linked article is well worth the price of admission.
  • Since we're light on quack, I leave you with this story out of Chicago, jtlight's backyard. Stephanie Robinette was arrested and charged with domestic violence, resisting arrest, and other charges on Monday when she sprayed police with breast milk after they approached her car. Link is safe for work.

Will work for quack. Anything helps.
