favre viking senior 300x271 Lets All Gush Over Brett Favres Hurt Ankle And Your Weekly NFL Total

This is the oldest Favre trick in the book. Play injured, hobble around, look gritty. Then if he wins,  he’s a gamer and peter king will write a 300 page theses on his accolades. And if he loses? well it was unbelievable that he was out there to begin with. That’s Brett Favre in a nutshell, it doesnt matter what is best for the team, it matters that he is in a win-win situation.

Time For The Badgers To Do Work

You know whats crazy. That Badger fans are actually worried about this game. Are you serious? So what if Iowa always beat us, we just kicked the shit out of Ohio State, we’re the best team in the country, theres just no way we lose today.

We’re faster, stronger, and about a thousand times smarter than Iowa.

Badgers + 5 is an absolute gift. I just can’t wait to see all those corn eating hicks with frowns on their faces after Ricky Stanzi and his pretty boy hair throws yet another costly pick.

Honestly, look at this kid. Do you think he is going to beat the biggest baddest team in the country? Fuck No. Lock it up. Badgers Roll

Monday Night Football - Vikings @ Jets

Whoo doggy do we have a good one on tap tonight. I honestly don’t know if I’m more excited for the game or for Mike, Jaws, and Gruden to dance around the fact that the entire country has seen BrettFavre’s dick. Either way I think the only thing that could make this game really great is if they let Mark Chmura be that weird celebrity guest they let in the booth for a few plays. I really could use Chewy’s take on BrettFavre’s penis.

Barf-Fest 2010 Complete - Giants 17, Bears 3

I don’t know what to say, really.  It’s hard to imagine an offense playing worse than Chicago’s did on Sunday night.  Actually, fuck that.  It’s impossible for an offense to play worse.  Plain and simple.  Nine sacks in the first half?  Inexcusable.  Jay Cutler was atrocious and held onto the ball way, way, way too long.  The offensive line did not do him any favors.  And lastly, why the fuck does Mike Martz insist on completely abandoning the running game?  I don’t care if you don’t gain a yard — when your quarterback is taking that kind of a beating, you HAVE to call a few run plays.  I put fault in the first half at 50% Cutler, 30% offensive line and 20% Martz.  And all that happened before the franchise quarterback suffered a concussion and had to leave the game.  Fuck it, if you watched this trainwreck you know how I feel.  Words fail me…

  • Credit to the defense.  As bad as the offense played, the defense was really, really good.  They gave up some bigger plays as the game went on but that has to be attributed to the fact that they were on the field all night.  The defense is the strength of the team and it’s nice to see them return to elite form.
  • I, like (I hope) most Bears fans, am very impressed with Julius Peppers so far in 2010.  For the second straight week, he was the best player on the field.  Last week he made his impact as a pass-rusher and against the Giants it was his play against the run that stood out.  Expect another big game from Peppers next week in his return to Carolina.
  • Honestly, I’m out of things to say at this point.  Nice game by Brad Maynard I guess.  The Giants are not very good.
  • Where was Lance Briggs tonight?
  • The Giants should quit being bitches and just realize Ahmad Bradshaw is their best player.  Don’t even think about giving the ball to Brandon Jacobs.
  • Sick, sick, sick play by Zach Bowman chasing down Bradshaw and punching the ball out.  That should be enough to get your name out of the doghouse, Zach.
  • I wish I could go on but I need a day or two to digest what this game means for the 2010 Chicago Bears.  Is this the beginning of the end?  Maybe.  But the optimist in me sees another angle.  Look, the offensive line needs a lot of work.  But if the team played even 10% better, they would have won.  Things couldn’t have gone any worse (I mean, they had like four fucking first downs), yet they were in this game until the 4:30 mark.  Either way next week is very, very important for the season and the psyche of everyone in Chicago.

The Hot Glove’s Weekly Big Ten Preview

Big Ten Football 300x150 The Hot Gloves Weekly Big Ten Preview

Editors Note - With Big Ten play starting this weekend TheHotGlove, led by schwa, will be taking us through the games each and every week. If you need a reason to read it, which you shouldn’t, here are two of them

1. The Big Ten is the best conference on the planet

2. Schwa knows the difference between things like your/you’re and their/there unlike my illterate ass.

So sit back and enjoy….

So… here we are.  The Big 10 season is finally underway.  And it couldn’t come any sooner.  Did you see the schedule of games last week?  Pretty much just a waste of everyone’s time - but at least it gave everyone something to do while getting plastered at 1 in the afternoon.  Anyway, I’ll have one of these for you every Thursday through the end of the season.  And this is no standard ESPN preview.  I don’t really care about stats or anything like that.  In fact, there’s a good chance very little of this will actually involve football, and that’s definitely a good thing.


#11 WISCONSIN @#24 MSU, 2:30 ABC

I’m expecting 3 blowouts in the B10 this week, so this was really a choice between the Badger/Spartan game and the PSU/Iowa game.  Personally, I don’t think PSU is that good, and each of those teams have already lost a game.  The Badgers and Spartans have been engaged in some pretty good games over the last 5 or so years, and I have a feeling we’re due for another one this weekend.  Both teams are running the ball like they’re going up against high school teams, so it will be interesting to see how they adjust when the D’s start loading up the box.  Vegas has the Badgers by a couple points on the road, and my gut tells me Bucky will pull this one out.  Grab a Creek and enjoy.

Speaking of Creek, I fucking love it.  Anytime you have a cheap beer with a high alcohol percentage, I’ll just about guarantee a few things will happen:

  • Someone will bleed
  • Someone will puke
  • Someone might die

It’s also highly possible that all 3 of those things happen to the same person.  Sounds like someone needs to learn how to handle their Creek a little better.  And WTF - my mind was blown when I learned that they sell MC at Trader Joe’s.  Trader Joe’s is so fucking trendy - they sell all this fancy beer and girls get weak in the knees just thinking about their fabulous (their word, not mine) wine selection.  But if you take a look on the bottom shelf, you’ll just find sixers of Creek beggin’ for some love.  I walk this planet to give them that love.


As anyone with HBO knows, there’s a certain elite group of movies that are constantly stuck on the loop.  Here, we’ll highlight the best of the best - movies so awesome that you simply can’t say ‘no’.

Packers vs Bears Preview And Other Week 3 Thoughts


Raise your hand if you thought Monday night’s Bears-Packers game was going to determine early first place position in the NFC North?  No Lovie, your vote does not count.  Few, if any, outside of Halas Hall predicted this game would feature two 2-0 teams.  The Packers were expected to be here and have shown early on why many listed them as Super Bowl contenders before the season started.  Aaron Rodgers is off to a solid start and it’s only a matter a time before the Green Bay offense really kicks it into high-gear.  The defense, led by stringy-haired man-child Clay Matthews, is one of the most talented units in the league.  Despite the loss of running back Ryan Grant, the team appears to be right on schedule and all is good in the Land of Cheeseheads.

The Bears, on the other hand, are amongst the NFL’s biggest surprises.  I’m sure Green Bay thought they would have competition for the division crown.  There’s no doubt, however, that they believed this team would be the challengers, not the Monsters of the Midway.  Chicago has answered the critics and can vault themselves from pretenders to contenders with a prime-time win on Monday Night Football.  Here are some of my keys to the game followed by other random NFL thoughts.

…And 10

College Athletes Get Nothing And Like It

Editor’s Note - Donnie, THG’s Old Blackhawk Writer, is back to get to talk the state of College Athletics

Am I the only person in the fucking world who thinks that paying college athletes is completely ridiculous? Recently, there have been a number of college athletic programs under investigation because their dumbass players are accepting gifts and money from agents and boosters.  Reggie Bush has been exiled from USC and has since forfeited his Heisman Trophy.  The craziest part of this whole scenario is that college athletes in general seem to be getting the benefit of the doubt.  This is not to say that there aren’t blood sucking agents out there, but don’t tell me that the players have not been well educated on how to handle these situations accordingly.  Don’t tell me the solution is to pay college athletes in order to curtail their inclination to accept improper benefits.  Do these kids have no sense of accountability in this?  I, for one, am fed up with the notion that big time college athletes should be monetarily compensated.  People continue to endorse this and now the athletes themselves are jumping on the bandwagon.  Now, I understand that it is only a few individuals who are hurting the reputation of the whole.   I know people who played division one college sports who are, to this day, some of my best friends and continue to exude character traits that I strive to attain.  However, this topic has gotten out of control and my temperature continues to rise as people constantly support this idea.  Here are nine reasons illustrating my opposition:

  • To Donnie, i hope u realize that realize Quarterback is not the hardest, Being an offensive lineman is the toughest position. You have to be strong mentally and physically, and they are generally the smartest people on the team. So suree quarterbacks realll toughh

    - Bubba
  • Thanks for the comments commentsectionbandito. Ryan Mallet was doing an interview with Dan Patrick about a month ago and admitted that it was possible to work DURING the season. Now this is the quarterback, and one of the best in the country this year I might add, of a major college football program saying that. So you have one of the most highly touted players in the country, playing the most difficult position in sports making these comments. Also, I wrote in my column that players should be able to go pro as early as they want. As soon as they get crushed in the pro’s, they’ll be wishing they had a free education to go back to.

    - Donnie
  • If people decide to pay you, no one should be able to say they can’t. I mean they earned that money, why can’t they do with it as they please? In fact, rich people should be entitled to a lifetime supply of free weed and hookers, since they can obviously circumvent the law to acquire these things with their vast wealth.

    No internet comment section ever has intelligent discourse, but can’t people think a little bit before they type? Athletes have these things called “offseasons” where they practice much less than they do during the season. Maybe they could use this time to seek employment? I doubt it would be hard to find given the fact that people actually know they can work hard.

    And for F’s sake, do you know where a lot of universities get the big bucks? RESEARCH AND RESEARCH GRANTS. The best you can get at some places for undergraduate research is housing. Yet, my university alone receives almost $200,000,000 for said research. Just food for thought for those meatheads out there, athletics isn’t the only big fish in the pond.

    Football is a choice. I’ve seen people give up their lives to THEATER for god’s sake, just as time consuming, same levels of talent required, and none of the glory. If you need to get paid to do something you love while you’re on a free ride, you frankly don’t love it and deserve a smack upside the head.

  • Anoynymous is dead on.Finally someone gets it.Yeah the Obannon lawsuit is going to change college sports forever.I love the point you make.They should be able to make whatever legal money they can like any other college student.If they can’t because of a “rule” then it is a labor employment contract and not a scholarship. Total anti-trust issues and collective bargaining issues front and center and there is no where to legally hide….

    - McGomp
  • You are so far off….if it is a scholarship, then they should be able to work or receive money for personal appearances etc just like any other student. Cheerleaders, film students, music students, business students are allowed to make money outside their scholarship and there is no restriction….but the NCAA wants no competition for the billions….not millions of dollar…billions.. that they make off of these players…so hypocritical….hey if they go to class and stay out of trouble then the NCAA should but out…it is none of their business legally where they make additional taxed income….It is Anti-trust and they are breaking several labor laws….the Ed Obannon law suit keeps moving through the courts and I can not wait until the NCAA is exposed as the exploitative fraud that it is….

  • Be careful Seth,
    First of all you’re going out on a limb on every comment you just made.
    I interned for CBS. You may have heard of them. They probably weren’t making much money off of me personally, because I was an intern, but I contributed to their productions which makes tons of money. It’s kind of like how the 3rd string quarterback doesn’t personally make that much money for the school. Why should he get paid? You’re talking about 1 or 2, maybe 3 players a year per team who are marquis players and drive revenue. Secondly, I was not a college athlete, but I was an athlete. Finally, I was paying ALL of my bills during that time, you know why? Because I sucked it up and made it work. Because I wanted something and I enjoyed and appreciated the opportunity to earn my stripes in an industry that I loved. I know this sounds crazy, but, it paid off. Hard work paid off, as I was employed by two companies before my internship was over.
    Finally, if not getting paid was the main reason you stopped playing then I gather you were pretty good. At the same time, if you were good enough to get paid, I find it hard to believe someone with your talent would quit. Many of the kids, who like you, don’t/didn’t get paid, come from slums. How do they keep playing? I sense there are some other circumstances at play here, otherwise you would have played until you were eligible for the draft, and then…gotten paid.

    - Donnie
  • While you were interning was someone making millions of dollars off of you? I’m guessing no right, and I am going out on a limb here but you weren’t an athlete were you. Also, while you were interning who was paying your bills? I love all of sports, but playing without pay is exactly why I had to stop playing.

    - Seth
  • Just throwing this out there - the NCAA signed a 14 year, $11 BILLION deal with CBS for the Men’s Basketball Tournament. Add in the NCAA’s TV deals with ESPN, CBS for SEC Football, and every other channel, you’ve got so much money it’s hard to fathom. I’m willing to bet the NCAA can find a way to pay each athlete $2000/year from those BILLIONS of dollars. This takes the heat off athletic departments to fund the stipends, and gives an equal amount to every D-I athlete. This issue isn’t a school specific topic - it’s an NCAA topic, so they should be the ones to pony up.

    - Clinton
  • Most of you people who try to disagree with Donnie are fucking retards. I dont have time nor the patience to go through in detail over every comment, but I am a former college athlete and I work in a division 1 athletic department.
    In no way shape or form should any athlete ever be paid. There is no greater difference in the size of athletic budgets than Division 1 Athletics. Top programs clear 100 million annually… Those schools being Texas, Ohio State, Tenn, Florida (not hard to fathom).

    The bottom schools struggle to make ends meat and still put a team out on the field. (Take notice of how many schools are dropping D1 Athletics programs, it happens everyday). So if you start paying these kids, you can kiss their ass good bye- any chance at seeing any “Miracles” or “Cindarella Story’s from ever fucking happening again, meaning the special year Butler had this past year in NCAA, bc I can tell you in fact, that there is no way they could every compete by playing players while they already operate off a budget less then 10% of what their instate rivals do in Bloomington.

    Point being before I go off on a tangent, the general finances of college athletics are that only the top programs make a profit, less than 8% actually, and if you pay the players, you will without a doubt create the most uneven playing ground in any sporting culture.

    If the players have a problem with the strict guidelines, practice schedule, early morning workouts, christmas eve, christmas day, fucking new years eve, missing spring break bla bla bal more fucking whining… then step back and realize what you are getting… a “chance” at a free education (chance meaning if you step out of the geology and sociology apartments and take a major worthwhile), you get experiences of a lifetime and the opportunity for people to be talking about your name for decades, you develop character and the chance to battle adversity (something the frat kid only knows about by loosing a 3rd straight beer pong game), you get better cafeteria/meal food- no room for argument there, and again… you get to walk out onto that field everyday, as man donnie says… …

    …. athletes.. step up to the plate, realize you are the marketing flagship for the university… if you cant handle the heat or dont have the juevos.. join the fucking chess club… i hear 100,000 people show up to watch those events every saturday….

  • I’m a huge fan of this column. If we start paying college football players, why not high school football teams too? Think about it—the money people pay at the door for a football game on a Friday night gets spread around to all the sports and “activities”-the quiz bowl team possibly included.
    One thing to keep in mind—a lot of those full-ride scholarships are actually paid for by endowments established by wealthy boosters.
    I say keep this great spectacle reserved for amateurs; personally, I don’t want to pay $300 to sit through a game I’m probably not going to remember much of anyways.
    Just a couple of random thoughts…

    - Magnus
  • Hey man,

    I’m not gonna react to each of your points one by one, but rather just in general. I am 100% FOR paying college athletes, from basketball to football to track/field to softball, ANY interscholastic varsity sports. I believe this because college sports have become such a massive amount of revenue for colleges, and to say that giving an athlete a full scholarship is enough no longer is apropos. To me, it’s not just practice and games - it’s all the things we don’t know about: mandatory study halls, community service appearances, film study, curfews, etc. Whereas a normal student might have class from 9-11 and then say 1-2 and then he’s done, the athlete has lifting from 5:30-7, class 8-10, then study hall 10-11, then class 2-3, then practice 3-6, then night study hall 8-9 (for example) and then with lifting again at 5:30, I don’t think this athlete is staying up past 10:30. This athlete has no time to find a side job to afford pizza, or going on a date, OR having their parents come watch them play if they attend a school far away (and this is something you ALWAYS hear about football players taking advantage of from boosters). Save up money during the summer then, some say! Well, NCAA sports has become a 24/7/340 business. No longer do they get summers off - they might get 1-2 weeks, but then it’s right back for summer school (to help make up classes they couldnt fit into their schedule why? Because of their crammed daily schedule!) or summer practice. Ultimately, I feel the NCAA will eventually find a way to give every athlete some percentage of their school’s athletic revenue. I’m not saying $10K/student; I’m just saying give them something like $3000/year.

    - Clinton
  • Biff, point well taken however:

    1)I never suggested that it is easy. I’ve played sports with strict workout regiments, I know how much it can suck, but I would rather be out exercising and doing calisthenics then stocking shelves at wal-mart in the middle of the night.
    2)If you prefer to roll out of bed hungover and after the football team has lifted and gone to class, don’t play.
    3)”nothing but tuition and books,” I can’t agree with that statement. This is exactly the point, the value of a college education is being compromised. Do you know how much books cost? Also, In most cases you are looking at tuition costs of $100k or more. I would hardly call that “nothing.”
    4)There is a contingent of students who have everything paid for, including social life, by parents or whomever, but its hard to make an argument for stipening athletes when there is also a large contingent of students who work around the clock to PAY for school.
    5)Possible solution: I know that students can request extra money for living expenses through their student loans. Perhaps, Athletes could look into that for help.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    - Donnie
  • oh christ:

    1. tuition and money generated by the athletics dept are separated; in fact, athletic revenue subsidizes your tuition as well as the university’s research endeavors.
    2. Football, Men’s basketball, and in some cases hockey and baseball subsidize all other collegiate athletic scholarships; essentially the football team pays for the women’s water polo team, and the men’s wrestling team, and the women’s soccer team, and the softball team, and the men’s diving team. Why? Title IX. Not only do you have to spend an equal amount on women’s athletics, but the coach’s have to make the same amount. So the assistant women’s basketball coach at Ohio State clears around $900k, but brings in virtually no revenue to the athletic department whatsoever. I can’t believe I am saying this next line, but that screams of socialism to me.
    3. Clearly you never played football before because if you did, you would know football practice fucking sucks. Have you ever heard the Ray Lewis quote where he essentially says you get paid to practice, but you play the games for free? Granted, that is in reference to professional athletics, but irrespective of that it rings true. I personally sympathize with guys who, by the time most students roll out of bed hungover, have already had an hour long weightlifting session, are in now inclass, and have another 3 hours of practice and meetings later that day. I realize plenty of students work their way through school, but if that doesn’t constitute working your way through school then I dont’ know what does.
    4. Because of the absurd demands placed on them by these ridiculous coaches, often times players struggle to balance their academic and social lives in the limited time they have away from their sport, and as such, struggle to take advantage of the academic opportunity presented them. Suggesting that they work more would only make this problem worse, not better.
    5. Here is what you completely miss: players receive a stipend for living expenses during the season, but as soon as the season is over they get nothing but tuition and books, which is why you see star running backs working the door at scummy college bars on Saturday night. I don’t mean to suggest that one should sympathize with them for just because they have to work a job while in school, as many students, scholarship athletes as well as everyone else does, but what I am suggesting is that it’s easy to have something given to you, but once it’s taken away things become more complicated.

    I generally agree with the statements saying, you knew it was wrong and you did it anyways; no excuse for that. But the argument where you’re saying that lots of people work while they’re in school is pretty whack- playing football constitutes a full time job, in addition to taking a minimum of 12 credits (NCAA rules dictate such). Again I must point out that football practice fucking sucks. You don’t get to “play football everyday”; usually practice consists of painfully boring walk-throughs, calisthenics, and drills where you run to the left, then the right, then back, then forwards based on which way your coach is holding the ball.

    My only suggestion would be to take a small slice of the revenues generated and rather than subsidize the women’s underwater basketweaving team, give the players an equal, reasonable stipend year round to deal with living expenses. Once you do that, then you have more ammo to lash out at the bad apples who take improper benefits, right?

    - Biff
  • Great point Little Cat! The reality is they are compensated. The reason they are not paid is because we have leagues for that….the pros!

    - Donnie
  • Very well-written article. You make some solid points. I’d also point out that with all the expenses with college athletics including so many sports, facilities, coaches, etc. they actually don’t make mad money.

    Check out this article:

    Only a few of these schools are making bank, 14 out of 120. With that being the case, how can they actually pay players or even make the argument that the school is making tons of money off them.

    - Little Cat
  • I agree with some of your points but fundamentally disagree with one. You pass over the fact that so much money is being made. Its more than so much, its millions upon millions. Don’t pay the athletes a lot but give them some compensation, theres a middle ground in there somewhere
