If you haven't noticed, the NCAA has had its way with Penn State. They got slammed with a $60 million dollar fine, loss of scholarships blah blah blah. They got hammered and these penalties could essentially be as damaging as the death penalty would've been. When 9:00 a.m. hit, we literally couldn't keep up with the tweets. Angry, blind PSU supporters were throwing F-bombs left and right, with the NCAA catching the brunt of it. JUMP!

Shaving anything onto yourself is a huge commitment and takes a lot of time. Well, this guy just took the shaving game to the next level with this Joe Mauer back shave that includes his number.

The Joe Paterno statue is gone. Workers started erecting a fence at 6:20 a.m. around the statue and by 7:28 a.m. the bronze celebration to the school's disgraced hero was removed, according to the Centre Daily Times. The above photo of the hooded Paterno was tweeted at 6:58 a.m. and soon, the jackhammers attacked the base. It's estimated that it took 30 minutes of jackhammering before the statue was lifted from its base.

According to Yahoo!, Florida State and Jimbo Fisher has banned his players from using the popular social media service Twitter. An FSU friend of mine sent me in some screenshots of some questionable tweets of some FSU players. I didn't think much of it and posted them up. One of them involved a player, Tyler Hunter, quoting a Lil' Boosie lyric talking about killing cops (this was not referenced). Could this have caused the FSU Twitter ban? JUMP!
Johnny Damon of the Cleveland Indians made an amazing dive in the stands and also seemed to make some friends in the process. This girl seemed pretty interested in him even though she didn't put her cell phone or her beer down. The guys around him look completely psyched too. We got a guy that looks like a huge NASCAR fan and a guy with a camouflage hat. You can check out the GIFs here. Enhanced image after the JUMP!
This guy is Tom Izzo and he coaches the Michigan State basketball team. Can you imagine him listening to the late Notorious B.I.G. (who is arguably one of the best rappers ever)? It's possible this was unintentional or just an amazing coincidence but it happened. Izzo was giving an interview and his quote was almost exactly the same as Biggie's line. Analysis after the JUMP!

It's with heavy hearts that we get back to what we do on BC. For those of you who want to stay updated on the Jessica Ghawi (Redfield) story, we encourage you to visit her brother Jordan Ghawi's blog for more information.

By now you know what happened in Denver last night. Multiple deaths. One victim is a three-month-old baby. Another senseless tragedy perpetrated by a madman bent on taking as many lives as possible. The difference this morning is that one of our friends, and a former BC writer, was one of those killed. Jessica Ghawi (Redfield) was an aspiring sportscaster, writer and a sports fanatic. Her parents told San Antonio news this morning that she's dead.
Here's what we know about Brewers' superfan Front Row Amy: she really doesn't give two sh*ts what you guys say about her. Just doesn't care. Still goes to Brewers games. Still sits in that Row 1, Seat 5 seat. 50+ games a year. And now, thanks to a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel fluff feature, commentors are destroying her on a variety of subjects.JUMP!
