It’s 8:34 am on the morning after a category five hurricane hit college football. The folks at Michigan fan site MGoBlog have already put in some yeoman’s work, demonstrating that the top story is, without a doubt, the allegations of numerous violations at Miami.
And while reluctant to join hands in a spirit of fellowship* with fans of the school up North, I say kudos! Although, I would also like to suggest you could have gone one step farther.
After all, not only did The Sporting News, CBS Sports, Fox Sports, NBC, SB Nation and (naturally) Yahoo have the Hurricanes’ scandal as their headline, so did Sports Illustrated:

…But closer inspection reveals it wasn’t even the top story on their friggin’ college football page!

*All kidding aside, the writers of MGoBlog do some very, very good work. As an Ohio University alum, though, I am begging, pleading with you to tell Brady Hoke to stop calling the Buckeyes “Ohio.” They are “Ohio State.” Ohio wears green and white and plays in the MAC. I’m serious. Tell him to cut it out. Now. It’s not cute.
