Interesting article about how the Athletic Department has been monitoring the student athletes social networking sites...... or maybe not monitoring, but mentoring. Yeah, that's it. Big Brother is mentoring you because you're still not prepared for the big, bad world that awaits. It's a helluva thin line between the two, ain't it?

This is why Fortune 100 companies are full of people who all think the same, act the same, and why they can't create but only control. If that's where you want to work, then be prepared to follow inane rules and be laid off without notice. I have no idea why some people consider them more secure than small companies. - JJ

Seriously - if you saw this game live, did that thought (points shaving) ever occur to you (or are you just disgusted because I just called you a paranoid whack job with shit on your shoes?). - JJ
