Bill Clinton’s Friday News And Views

clinton-carlos

Who says Americans don’t care about Soccer?

Happy 66th birthday to the man that doesn’t look a day past 78, the 42nd President of the United States Bill Clinton. I’m sure no matter what I write here someone will take offense to it, so I won’t go on too long about the man that created a budget surplus, signed NAFTA into effect, was involved in numerous scandals and iconically knew how to make an intern feel like one of the team.  No matter your politics though, you have to give Bill some credit for being a positive ambassador for the United States and a guy you’d totally want to have a beer with.  You know, unless you hate him for being a Democrat.  That’s cool too.

Perhaps not too surprisingly, yesterday was a pretty slow news day in the world of UK Sports.  We are coming off a high from two weeks of surprise August basketball, Joker hasn’t landed a surprise recruit in about 24 hours, and while the football team is finally practicing the games are still a few weeks away.  Still, there are a few things important yo take note of and a few that are of absolutely no significance.  We’ll make sure you know both.

A few news and views headed into a nice August weekend:

— The biggest news in the college sporting world continues to be the controversy surrounding the Miami program.  Matts post just below mine did an excellent job outlining the hypocrisy surrounding the situation so make sure you go read that. But the focus for most non-U fans shifts to what punishments will befall the once better than average program.  While we are still a ways away from learning the results of an NCAA investigation, with the implication that 72 athletes were receiving improper benefits (and we’re talking benefits that would make the President of Fenerbahce blush) most people assume the hammer is going to drop on the Hurricanes.  Only most people would be wrong, according to both Gregg Doyel and the New York Times.  Gregg opines that the NCAA doesn’t have the intestinal fortitude to administer the death penalty anymore – it would just push other NCAA schools even further towards Cal’s 4 independent Superconference idea.

The New York Times agree’s with Gregg, but uses quotes from NCAA officials to back the theory up.  You see, no team has received the harshest NCAA penalties – a television ban and/or the death penalty – since 96 and 87 respectively.  But of the punishments, the NCAA Vice President of Enforcement went so far as to say that little discussion has been had about reviving those harsh penalties.  Instead you will likely see Miami get off with reduced scholarships and a lengthy post-season ban.  Honestly, no matter what the number attached to both of those punishments is, it would be an embarrassment given the allegations currently connected to the story.  What was going on at Miami was the definition of what people think of when they say College Athletics is dirty.  If you can’t come down hard on that (but you can spend half a year arguing with Kentucky about game balls,) your institution is more useless than the US Congress.  And that’s saying something.

— In positive (I guess) punishment news, Terrelle Pryor’s punishment from the NCAA was essentially upheld by the NFL. Pryor left OSU after the controversy at Ohio State exploded and has put his name in the supplemental draft.  The NFL has decided to suspend him for five weeks of practice and the first five games for whichever team decides to draft him.  Honestly it’s a surprising move, and likely one that the NCAA really needed to go their way.  It shows a connection between the NCAA and the NFL that hasn’t been existent in the past, proving you can’t escape your punishments by bolting to the NFL.  Of course you can’ serve your punishment while collecting a paycheck, but hey, you can do that at Miami too.  Connectivity.

— Okay, past all that and onto some Kentucky news.  Yesterday Joker waved goodbye to another player fans were excited about this season.  Jerrell Priester wasn’t on anyones Heisman watch list, but he was a name that fans were familiar with on a team full of new players.  Priester had received a lot of positive press in the off season as a potential player to watch on the defensive side of the ball, but when fall camp started up he found himself towards the bottom end of the depth chart.  There is still no official word on why Preister decided to transfer, but after a year of being delegated mainly to special teams followed by another year sitting 3rd on the depth chart it wouldn’t be surprising if Jerrell left to find a place where he could get more reps.  There will be a few who bemoan the loss of another potential contributor, but Joker has said a number of times that one of the best things about this years team is that they all seem to buying in together.  If there’s a player that doesn’t want to be here, it’s probably best we wish them well on their way out.

— In any other off season, Darius Miller and Team USA would be getting a lot more attention.  Not so with Calipari.  Between the top recruiting class arriving on campus, pick up games, and Pro’s vs the Dominican Republic, it has been easy to gloss over the accomplishments of Kentucky’s own returning Senior.  Miller has been playing his role with Team USA as they have gone 5-0 in the preliminary rounds of the World University Games, scoring when needed and picking up a high number of boards every game.  His point totals haven’t been the highest, but they haven’t needed to be – and the key statistic in my opinion has been Miller’s consistency.  Check out Miller’s box scores and you will see he has been hitting his shots at a clip of 50% or greater nearly every outing.  Up until SEC play last year, Darius was a very inconsistent player.  As the season came to a close he seemed to have found his groove and his stint with Team USA suggests he is still in it.  If he can continue to be a consistent scoring threat next year, Kentucky will very likely be unguardable.

— The Kentucky SEC schedule dropped yesterday with the only surprising note (other than the exclusion of potential TAMU games) was the noticeable drop in attractiveness in the Tennessee vs Kentucky match up.  You knew the game would lose some of its luster with the firing of Bruce Pearl and we all knew Cuonzo Martin’s Volunteers wouldn’t have the same hype surrounding them, but seeing the game delegated to ESPNU and the series being over before February was an eye opener.  In the past few years Kentucky/Tennessee has been one of the must watch series in the sport – in part because of the length of the rivalry and yes, in part because of the deep seeded dislike between the two head coaches.  Sadly it seems as if that era has come to a close for now with Kentucky/Florida and Kentucky/Vanderbilt getting the prime late season match ups, but who knows, maybe Cal will schedule whatever D-League team Pearl ends up coaching for next season.  Pro’s vs the Maine Red Claws?

— You likely heard about the Georgetown brawl in China, but did you know that it very well could have been our own Jon Hood out there showing that China team that The Mop nickname stands for more than his just high school mascot costume?

hood

So yeah.  I think it’s safe to assume the Bayi Chinese basketball team took one look at our man Jon Hood and said that’s a fight we can’t afford to get into.  Smart move my friends.

— Finally, the UK Volleyball team posted this video of them goofing around during a photo shoot.  It’s not news and it’s not views, but it is attractive women on a Kentucky team for a sport I recently found out I’m really bad at, so I figured it was worth a little publicity.  Seriously, if anybody out there wants to join a bad bar volleyball team, we could use a ringer for the tournament.

That about covers it for tonight.  Make sure to tune in tomorrow for the radio show as Matt makes fun of Shannon the Dude for being Shannon the Dude all the while discussing Kentucky sports and delving a little into the Miami situation.

    First: Clinton only looks like he knew what he was doing because his presidency fell during the internet bubble, and by the end of his presidency the bubble was blowing up. Also, the majority of financial regulations that led to the housing bubble, o yea happen under 1 William Jefferson Clinton. Clinton had 1 of the best lines ever to show his Arkansas stupidity: figuring out he had to listen to the markets; Clinton said I have to decide on what I can & can not do because of what some bond trader thinks. The majority of Americans are too stupid to know that Clinton was an idiot when it came to business & economics; kinda like the idiot we’ve got now running the show.

    If the NCAA doesn’t hit the U upside the head with something after this blatant breaking of the rules, then watch out because the flood gates of even more out of control cheating is defiantly on. If the NCAA doesn’t make an example out of the U, then they will destroy what little bit of creditability they have left.

    If it wasn’t for Newt Gingrich and the Republican controlled Congress there would have never been a surplus. Clinton is a progressive nut-job just like Obama. He’s just a little smarter is all. He doesn’t require a teleprompter for every word that comes out of his mouth like Obama. Let’s not forget he was also impeached. Somehow he gets the credit for what Congress created during his time as president and the internet boom. But i wouldn’t expect the hardcore democrats running this site to know that.

    I love how the run-of-the-mill Republican voter HATES the idea of NAFTA since it came about during the Clinton administration and “results in lost American jobs!”, but then they fall silent once they find out that it’s an EXTREMELY conservative ideal and is something that liberals absolutely hate. Perfect example of agreeing with something just because your party agrees with it.

    Dummiecrat has it right – if you go back and check you’ll see that the budget surplus and NAFTA were both Congressional Republican initiatives, with Clinton signing on towards the end when he found he could no longer block them. Same with welfare reform, which wasn’t his idea either. He’s the last person most folks would want to have a beer with. Lying to the FBI, his wife and kid, and the American people about his affairs also puts him in last place among American presidents.

    The fact that he was an Arkansas fan doesn’t help either…but let’s omit this praise and longing for an impeached president who was disbarred.

Call bull, or whatever, but it’s what the kid told me, and I’m sure other prople have heard it too. There’s a bunch more, but I’m sure I’ll get mopped up or deleted for posting this, so…

    It’s an honor for me today to be joined by my
    predecessor, President Bush, who took the major steps in negotiating
    this North American Free Trade Agreement; President Jimmy Carter,
    whose vision of hemispherical development gives great energy to our
    efforts and has been a consistent theme of his for many, many years
    now; and President Ford who has argued as fiercely for expanded trade
    and for this agreement as any American citizen and whose counsel I
    continue to value.

    Republitards have selective memory, Clinton had a Democratic congress until 1996, and the act that gave the US a surplus was the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993 which passed Congress without a single Republican vote. Step down conservatives, you can’t take credit for that one, nice try though.

    Large amount of BS to those who refuse to give credit where credit is due. Surplus was on Clinton’s watch, period. He shut down the government until he got certain provisions he wanted. Deficit was caused by Bush “refunding” when we “overpaid” and starting two unnecessary wars. He’s simply an idiot/puppet, take your pick. Funny how Reagan and other prez’s get credit, but when it’s Clinton, it’s all due to the Republican congress. Just like in sports, the leader, head coach, prez, etc. should and will get all the blame or credit. That’s just the way it works.

    I’m not affliated with either party, BTW. Independant is the only choice, IMHO. Vote ideas, not party. Both parties are corrupt.

    George W. Bush allowed his terms to be defined by 9/11. He didn’t have to do that. He could’ve made it about more than that, but for whatever reason (either didn’t have the guts, willingness, or know-how) chose not to. I don’t hate or even dislike W…..not anymore that is. Perspective is a good thing to have. In the words of the thread author, he’s a guy that I would love to have beers with…but hey make’em good beers!! Cheers to Bill Clinton and happy birthday to the man who forever made us look at the Oval Office in a different kind of way….think about it. Even the folks who hated him would have a really hard time not laughing or smiling when you think about the deed going on behind closed doors in what for all intents and purposes is the most important room in the Western Hemisphere.

    Im sure you wouldnt have been thinking the NFL decision to honor an NCAA suspension for a player wouldnt have been quite so positive if the player was Jeremy Jarmon, who, as we all remember, tested positive for banned substances than skirted his punishment by going into the supplemental draft.

When you’re not fighting two wars that costs us over a billion dollars a week you don’t need as big of a military. For all you saying he was impeached wrong.

    There was no budget surplus, regardless of who you think created it. Taking social security money, throwing it into the overall budget pot while knowing it will be an outlay later on, does not a surplus make.

    39. You’re wrong, Repubs didn’t take over until 1995 officially, but even so, the surplus was resolved with the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993 which passed Congress without a single Republican vote in… 1993. In 1993 both Senate and Congress were controlled by the Democrats. Republicans can’t take credit for the surplus, it’s nonsensical and completely baseless; and bringing up the dot-com boom is a copout. You will find no factual or credible evidence that Al Gore’s Internet helped create a government surplus.

    Clinton was the most oveerrated politician ever. He got elected, thanks to that nutjob Perot, with a lower percentage of the vote than the loser Dukakis. He inherited a recovering economy and bequeathed a recession. Managed in two years to turn the Congress over to the GOP for the first time in decades. He only went to the center after being forced to do so by the GOP Congress. Somehow the GOP managed to nominate the weakest candidate possible so Slick Willy eased into a second term which was memorable only because he got his fat ass impeached.

    55. Fiscal bills only last a year and are then renewed and reenacted the following October; AKA fiscal year policies. It’s literally spelled out for you and you still put your foot in your mouth. Clinton’s surplus bill was the Omnibus Budget Reconcilliation Act of 1993, which was not a fiscal bill. This is why I try not to argue with Republitards, they have no clue what they’re talking about.

    62. Clinton’s last four years were controlled by a Republican congress, and in those final four years (not including his first four) we actually saw a deficit; not a surplus. His true surplus happened in his first four years, the year after he passed the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993, in which congress was controlled by the Democrats. It’s not just a coincidence that as soon as the Republicans took over congress since the early 50s that we plunged into a deficit below $400 billion for the first time ever; if you Republitards take credit for anything it should be that.

The budget surplus was more a result of the economic conditions (and luck), not the specific policies of either party, although historically Reps have supported smaller government, lower taxes, and more individual freedoms, which result in economic GROWTH and thus greater revenues. That’s the way it should be, IMO. Our leaders are no longer leading, they are looking out for their own self interests and they should all be replaced.

    After reading through these responses, it is obvious why the Republicans want to cut spending on education. They want you to be a mushroom. They want to feed you bs and keep you in the dark. From some of the replys, it is working.

    There is a certain future President who I am sure will be the Saturday News and Views tomorrow. Will would it be possible to get a little Ron Paul love tomorrow?

    Its sad to see blind partisans try to take credit for something that NEVER happened: there was NEVER a surplus. There was a PROJECTED surplus for down the road. Guess what year it was projected to?

    2012.

    How is that “surplus” looking these days?
