The worst college in America – U of Colorado

I promise this will be the last College Sports post in a while. It is just such fertile ground for hypocritical bullshit. Gary Barnett, the coach/pimp at the University of Colorado, is about to get fired because he lost to games to Texas and Nebraska by a combined score of 100-6. He will receive a bonus of $1.6 million dollars if fired.

What makes this noteworthy is that the coach will be fired for losing football games badly. He was not fired for 1) making disparaging comments to a female player who was allegedly raped, 2) having 6 women pres accuse players of raping them during his 6 year tenure and 3) (the best one) the football team using sex and alcohol to recruit players, supposedly without him or anyone at the university knowing. None of these things got him fired.

Now, imagine you live in Colorado and your daughter goes to U of Colorado. You not only pay tuition, but some of your taxes go to the school and the school pays the athletic director, coaches, etc. Your money also goes to the alcohol fueled sex/recruitment parties where women end up raped. So, you could pay for your own kid’s rape.

Colorado will play in the Champs Sports Bowl on 12/27.

Gary Barnett and my dad went to high school and college together and played on several of the same teams.

Big time college sports cannot but make a person want to take a shower.

I remember that. You had mentioned it around the time he took Norhtwestern to the Rose Bowl - I think he turned down the ND job too. I remember that you relayed that your Dad had a number of good things to say about him.

But there is no way what happened there happened without a wink and a nod. Now, I don't think that U of C is the only school to entice recruits with Drugs, Booze and Sex - he just got caught.

Pat Forde has a slurp peice to him on ESPN. What an ass.

This reminds me of the scene in He Got Game, where all the coaches (Smith, Kzwqiryeuski, etc.) appear in the movie, near the time that Ray Allen is recruited with the wild sex parties. I asked, "Why would these guys appear in this?" and you wisely responded, "Because every blue chip recruit in America is going to see this movie."

The Bears are now getting 6.5 points. It's insane.
