Duke University managed to save $450,000 but according to today’s Charlotte News & Observer “the school had to trash itself to do it.”

Duke was scheduled to play Louisville for four straight years in college football. However, after losing to the Cardinals 40-3 in 2002, the school broke its contract with the Cardinals and pulled out of the remaining three years of the deal.

Louisville took the Dukies to court claiming breach of contract. The contract called for either side to pay a penalty of $150,000 per game if it pulled out of the deal. The fee would be assessed if a date with a “team of similar stature” could not be scheduled. Duke’s lawyers argued that since its program was so bad they could be replaced by ANY Division 1 football team.

On Thursday a judge ruled in Duke’s favor. In his decsision the judge said,


“At oral argument, Duke persuasively asserted that this is a threshold that could not be any lower. Duke’s argument on this point cannot be reasonably disputed by Louisville.”

In other words, the judge bought the school’s argument that they were so bad they could be replaced by ANY team in college football. Humiliating? Yes, but it saved the school $450,000

For several years the Downtown Athletic Club has given out the “Butkus Award” in honor of the nation’s top college linebacker. Now, former Chicago Bears linebacker, Dick Butkus, has won a lawsuit preventing college football from using his name for the award.

In fact, a federal court in California ruled the Downtown Athletic Club may actually owe Butkus damages.

The football Sports Information Director at the University of Miami has been fired after authorities found Child Pornography on his university issued computer. Details of the firing are in the Palm Beach Post.

Rick Korch, 52, was with the University of Miami from 2004 through last month.

A police spokesman declined Wednesday to comment, but Korch’s attorney issued a statement.

Rick Korch was terminated at the University of Miami due to inappropriate pornography on his work computer,” attorney William Barzee said.

“However, he is innocent of any criminal wrongdoing and looks forward to having the opportunity to clear his name in the appropriate forum at the appropriate time.”

Korch had complained to the university that his computer was running slowly. The U sent a computer technician who reported finding sexually explicit material after logging onto the computer using Korch’s university provided user name and password.

The technician reportedly found a video of a man having sex with a “prepubescent female” and images revealing “scantily clad females who appeared to be between the ages of 10 and 15 years old in sexual-type poses.”

Under a folder titled “Season Recaps,” university technicians found other images of children engaged in sexual conduct, According to police, one child was estimated to be between 6 and 8 years old.

Korch had worked with the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins before joining the University of Miami.

Penn State “Ballhandler” Stanley Pringle

Not one, but TWO college athletes have been arrested in the past two days for masturbating in public.

First, Penn State point guard, Stanley Pringle, was charged following an incident at the school library.

Police said Pringle, the team’s point guard, sat behind the victim in the stacks section of the library, attempted to start a conversation with the woman and began masturbating. Police have filed charges of public lewdness and disorderly conduct against him in connection to the incident, but Centre County District Judge Jonathan Grine, who is out of the office, was unable to sign the criminal complaint as of 2 p.m. today. Without the signed complaint, Pringle cannot be formally arrested.


Spencer Ridenhour

Now U-Mass defensive back, Spencer Ridenhour, has been arrested for lewd conduct. Police claim Ridenhour’s “lewd act” was a drive-by incident.

In what could be the police quote of the year, a spokesperson said,

“She got a very good description of him, and the model and make of the car. He was masturbating while driving. I imagine he was driving very slowly.”
