Attention all non-child molestors, child-rapists, weirdos, mouth-breathers, over-handsy-types, pocket self-touchers, and other non-freaks who happen to coach sports. Now would be a good time to come forward to defend your profession.

Is “I’m a college sports assistant coach” about to become the new “meet me in the rectory” in the pantheon of uber-creepy phrases?

Syracuse has fired Jim Boeheim’s bff Bernie Fine who is accused of being a creepy creepy creepy sex abuser of boys. His wife isn’t much better, apparently. She reportedly had a sexual relationship with one of her husband’s alleged victims.

Christ, people. I know it snows a lot in Syracuse, but there’s got to be more to do in the winter than wax poetically about Billy Owens and have unhealthy-to-illegal sex rings…right?

Urban Meyer is a complex man.

After experiencing acute chest pains that he feared could lead to lethal heart trouble, he quit his head coaching job at Florida in 2009. Then, he re-hired himself.

Then he quit again again, and left Florida. This time it wasn’t his heart, it was his desire to spend more time with his family.

Family, I hope you enjoyed your year. The man named after a pope is back in the saddle, baby. He’s Ohio State’s new 6-million-dollar man.

And one more thing. OSU is Oregon State. Not Ohio State, not Oklahoma State. I will not argue this.

You know how the NBA is cannibalizing itself right now, and how that totally sucks? Especially if you’re not psychotically clamped to the NFL teat?

Good news. Major League Baseball won’t be doing that for at least another five years. Say what you will about Bud, but the lessons learned from the 1994-95 strike have not been forgotten. Credit to both sides. Play ball.

Happy Thanksgiving, Wuhl Nation. Hope you are enjoying this week with loved ones in good spirits, with good cheer and food. We’ll be checking in here and there, and of course on twitter.

Now, this is good clean fun from North of the border. That one dude really gets his stomps in, Hells Angels style:

Comedy throughout, Mets specific at the 7.11 mark.

Maybe it’s not just Penn State. Maybe it’s not just the Catholic Church. While we hope there is no rush to judgement of Syracuse assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine, there is no denying the truth: Sex abuse of children is a far larger issue than any of us care to think about. Maybe it’s time for everyone to look more skeptically at institutions that have relatively unfettered access to young people.

Maybe this is just a sad, sad chapter of history in college sports.

Oklahoma State head women’s basketball coach and an assistant coach were killed in a small plane crash in central Arkansas. Kurt Budke and assistant Miranda Serna were among 4 killed after a single engine plane went down last night, according to Oklahoma State. There were no survivors of the crash.

Oklahoma State lost 10 members of the school’s men’s basketball team in a 2001 plane crash.

Looks like Andrew Luck isn’t the only Cardinal student-athlete with accuracy down field. Dig Gabriel Harris’ effort for Stanford against Colorado State just before halftime. The bomb brought Stanford within two points at intermission. Stanford went on to win at home over the Rams 64-52.
