Freek, you've done it again.
Assorted Miami news ready go!
- NCAA president Mark Emmert says he's cool with the death penalty. I'll believe it when I see it, but Emmert saying that publicly should make everyone at UM brick their drawers with all speed. Julie Roe Lach, the NCAA's VP of Enforcement, disagrees. Fun!
- Former Wisconsin coach and current AD Barry Alvarez and his family lost about a million bucks in Nevin Shapiro's Ponzi scheme, and predictably they are upset and want their money back.
- Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott is giving former Miami AD Paul Dee the blues for laying the hammer to USC while his entire program was getting showered in lapdances, cash and rims. I hate to stand up for USC here, but Scott is right.
It was just an idea. We were chilling one day, and I came up with I wanted to get a Spartan tattoo to represent my school, and my dislike for the school down the road. I didn't want it to go down as negative message toward anybody. Just wanted to show the love I had for my school. I told my tattoo artist and he sketched it up, and I enjoyed it.
I had it done in Ann Arbor, at my friend's house. We were all hanging out, relaxing and barbecuing, and we were all getting tattoos. A lot of people came up with their ideas, and that's what I came up with. And there it was.
