    Assuming this is the reason Chuck got canned? Sounds pretty sketchy.

    I would imagine he got canned for refusing to fire Yancy.

    Too bad Yancy ruined Ole Miss’s chances with this kid. This kid and Lane Kiffin’s Twitter trolling would be Taylor Made for each other.

    Maybe Yancy is a blood sacrifice.

    Did you not see? Yancy is responsible for dozens of commitments to Ole Miss!

    How he was not fired years ago is beyond me.

    Someone should go get (or just makeup) a new quote from Devin Brown on this latest development.

    Nothing really
    UPDATE: Thank you all for the overwhelming response. Keep 'em coming. We have an army of volunteers. I will be getting you set up in the coming days. My plan is for coverage to return to normal and at full speed on Thursday as we get ready for Tennessee.

    All moderator privileges were wiped away from this site last night. If you were a mod and would like to continue, please send me a direct message today. If you weren't and you would like to be, please do the same. After last night, it is obvious I could use a little help. On a separate note, I deeply understand your frustrations right now. I would ask that you all hang tight. I hope to be able to address some of your concerns very soon. Thank you, sincerely.

    it's not terribly common to publicly witness an "I messed up so bad I have to change careers entirely" fuckup, this one is a doozy.

    like yea, he's writing about and interviewing teenagers but he still got to spend a lot of his time covering college football, I can think of a load of worse jobs.

    its just so on brand that Shannon Terry took them on board with swiftness

    id get it if he was in search of known quantities for a big market team

    also this at the end of the article On3 posted on its own site "Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed."

    0% cracked me up.

    All of our olds love Chuck because he published the Spirit as a weekly paper for about 20 years before going online with Scout. On3 is going to get a ton of subscriptions from this that they otherwise wouldn’t have gotten.

    Ben is my favorite on our beat, so I’m glad he landed. I wish he’d gotten the site to run himself, but I get their wanting to keep Chuck involved.

    If you have a dog and don't see poop inside or outside, you should be alarmed. The poop is somewhere, Shannon.

    I saw a documentary named Envy about this very subject where they came up with a product called Vapoorize that gets rid of dog shit.
