49er’s Tight End Vernon Davis had been penalized by NFL referees for doing something boneheaded, AFTER THE PLAY WAS OVER, and then tried to defend himself to coach Singletary on the sideline. At that point Singletary had had enough and sent him to the locker room.
That act as a head coach in itself was nothing short of AWESOMETASTIC, but add to that, the fact that Vernon Davis was a first round top 10 pick in the NFL 2006 draft and has done pretty much NOTHING ever since entering the league, so to send him off the field for being a jerk was just pure CLASSIC UNIVERSITY genius by itself.
However the beloved Mike Singletary did not stop there…noooo, he showed even more CLASSIC UNIVERSITY skills by having THIS press conference after the game.
I personally loved what he had to say, I hate these cry baby players who have never done ANYTHING but for some reason think people should cater to them.
I hate players who have done A LOT and think people should cater to them. You think because you can run fast and have muscles that makes you a better man? Real men are men like MIKE SINGLETARY, men with honor, work ethic and heart, so if you want some respect, try earning it.
Vernon Davis…GO GET A HAIR CUT PUNK!!!

The IAAF has asked the South African athletics federation to conduct a gender verification test on 800-meter runner Caster Semenya amid concerns she does not meet the requirements to compete as a woman. Caster Semenya.
The 18-year-old Semenya won the 800 final on Wednesday at the world championships in a world leading 1 minute, 55.45 seconds, beating defending
champion Janeth Jepkosgei by a massive 2.45 seconds. Jennifer Meadows of Britain took bronze. Olympic champion Pamela Jelimo was eliminated in qualifying.
The IAAF requested the gender test about three weeks ago, after Semenya
burst onto the scene by slicing her personal bests in the 800 and 1,500 by huge
IAAF spokesman Nick Davies stressed that "it's a medical issue, not
an issue of cheating." He said the "extremely complex, difficult" test has
been started but that the results were not expected for weeks.
The verification test requires a physical medical evaluation, and includes reports from a gynecologist, endocrinologist, psychologist, an internal medicine specialist and an expert on gender.
"So we're talking about reports that are very long, very time consuming," Davies said. South Africa team manager Phiwe Mlangeni-Tsholetsane would not confirm or deny that Semenya was having a gender test, but said "there was no cheating on our part." "We entered Caster as a woman and we want to keep it that way," Mlangeni-Tsholetsane said. " Our conscience is clear in terms of Caster. We have no reservations at all about that."
Although medals will be awarded for the 800, the race remains under a cloud
until the investigation is closed, and Semenya could be stripped of the gold
depending on the test results, IAAF general secretary Pierre Weiss said.
"If at the end of the investigation it is proven that the athlete is not female, we will withdraw the medal," Weiss said. "But today there is no proof and the benefit of doubt must always be in favor of the athlete."
Semenya qualified for Wednesday's final with a top time of 1 minute, 58.64 seconds, and posted the world's top time this year of 1:56.72 three weeks ago at the African junior championships in Bambous, Mauritius.
Does anyone besides me find this HILARIOUSLY FUNNY?!?! I mean I am just saying...I wouldn't fight her!
This little devil is a hand-crafted ceramic head sporting a puzzled expression and a huge nose.
Then this little booger, pardon the pun, while the yolk is blocked by the nose, the rest of the egg tastefully drips through the nostrils and into your bowl.
I love it!! It’s a kitchen knife block that is shaped like a human head. This is so awesome, unless of course you are offended by this, then it’s disgusting and I am sickened by it.
Let me introduce you to one, meet Mississippi State hoops center Jarvis Varnado, who has led the nation in blocks for two years straight, and propelled the Bulldogs to an SEC title and NCAA Tournament appearance last season.
That may seem like a big deal but suddenly he is playing as a walk-on. What happened to his scholarship?
Here is where Jarvis just earned himself a Classic University Scholarship.
With incoming players John Riek and Renardo Sidney both signed by the Bulldogs for this coming season, coach Rick Stansbury found himself one scholarship player over the NCAA limit of 13.
So Varnado put his name in the NBA draft, thus giving up his scholarship, with the understanding that he could then take out a loan to pay for his senior year of school.
Unbelievable…..Jarvis went into debt so that another player could attend college, and the Bulldogs could get that much stronger.
Varnado tested the NBA Draft waters before withdrawing in May. Now, he’s like quite a few of his classmates — indebted to student loans for the $5,151 that it costs for a full-time undergraduate student per year at Mississippi State.
Bracky Brett, MSU’s associate athletic director for compliance, said the arrangement is OK by NCAA rules and is no different than when any of State’s
other walk-ons incur student loan debt to pay their way through school.
If Sidney and/or Riek are not cleared, Varnado could be placed back on State’s
But for now, Varnado, who led the nation in blocked shots
the last couple of years, appears to be the leading candidate for the title of
nation’s best non-scholarship player.
Jarvis Varnado, you sir are a product of the Oldschool, where team comes first and home of those that know that if you do right by others its comes back to you. I salute you Jarvis Varnado and offer you a scholarship to the Classic University.

But with a massive list of game-enhancing tweaks on offer -- many of which amount to little more than typical game cheats -- does the upcoming blockbuster Madden NFL 10 charge too much for too little?
Money, Money, Money, Money...Money.
Gaming blog Joystiq points out some of the game's quirkier downloadable items, which include everything from simple one-time enhancements (letting a severely injured player fully recover, giving all players a 10% stat boost for one play) to the more robust "Elite Status" download. For $5, Elite Status will let players "access exclusive VIP lobbies, leaderboards and play the all new Elite Gametype," which is essentially a tougher difficulty setting.
In other words, you'll pay $60 for the game, then an additional $5 if you want to enjoy the sum of its features.
That kind of nickel-and-diming has in the past proven irksome. Shortly after releasing their award-winning role-playing game The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, publisher Bethesda unveiled their first piece of downloadable content: armor for a character's horse. Though priced at a meager $2.50, gamers were outraged at what was considered at the time to be an act of gouging them for extra cash for content that should have been in the game from the outset. Similar complaints were aimed toward game maker Capcom over a downloadable extra mode in their hit game Resident Evil 5, as well as EA for a $5 "unlock everything" cheat code in the skateboarding sim Skate 2.
What do you think about this?
