    The “logic” issue surrounding the NCAA decisions held by the BBN centers around the absence of the NCAA rules and bylaws being cited to support these decisions. Matt, do you have or know the applicable rules or bylaws?

    I think those in the media trying to make a big deal of this are doing it for the right reasons. The NCAA is a joke, almost everyone is ready for their assinine rules and regulations where half make no sense and the other half no one knows exist.

    Love Oscar Combs, but he definitely did overreact. We will find out what happened in time, and an apology will be given. I think the fact that the game will not be aired in any way is more upsetting for those of us who can’t make it.

    The truth is right by not explaining the how. Politicians get elected by making promises, not following through with them. People (in a general form) like to hear that a politician is going to “create jobs” or “reduce debt” but have about 0 plans set to do so.

The film has since resumed and Craig will return as Bond once again,[27] with the film due for release on 9 November 2012.
