They didnít.

Again, ludicrous semantics on your part.

It makes you appear petty.  Is that your intention?
My intention is argue facts.

I believe the "him" was Meyer. Pretty clear from the part of the post you deleted.

he knew that.  He is making the point that "officially" it is a paid leave...and not a suspension.   The word suspend, means "pause" and often that is what a suspension is for - to put everything on hold while investigating...so to a reasonable person it is basically the same thing...but he is right that there are nuances and shades of grey.

Really? Jesus, even I think that's undue nit picking.

There are no Title IX implications to the Smith issue, because it does not cover the treatment of the wives of University employees.

If that is the case why did they bother suspending him?

The point is Meyer was not suspended.

Give yourself a gold star.

Saw an interview with Cleese where be talked about how odd it was that people still ask him about nearly 50 year old comedy routines. Which made me realize how damned old I am, and also how timeless many of those bits are.

 Well it looks like the clock is ticking on DJ Durkin. May have to rethink my interest in college football. Tired of jerks running programs

Yep. Maryland is everybody's homecoming game team of choice. Interesting thing, students at Maryland don't have to pay to go to games at Byrd (there's an athletic fee paid wiith tuition but it's minimal). At Michigan the students pay for each game's ticket (I presume that's the wayvat most "football schools")." Despite not knowing anything about football and caring even less, my daughter bought the tickets.

I'm watching Orioles-Red Sox game and in an interesting coincidence an ad for Maryland football tickets came on. One of the lines in the ad was "Game times to be announced; what time can you get here?"
