The Real Killer

A lot of people at ScienceBlogs and around the blogosphere have been chattering about the death of Steve “Croc Hunter” Irwin, but here at evolgen we know who the real killer was:


We’re on the ball like the Boulder District Attorney’s Office. Now, we’re off to arrest Kevin Vranes for sexually harassing the football team. They lost to Montana State, Kevin. Montana State!

    Who was that witch (Australin writer)who said the animals finally got their revenge? It was in very bad taste.

    dude, since this is like the 14th university I’ve landed at, I don’t even care. (but ssshhh, don’t tell anybody, I might be trying to get a perm job here). here’s a good one for you: I went to UC Davis for undergrad. Was a really good D-II school and is now a mediocre D-IAA school. But I went to very bad D-I Columbia for grad school. Then taught at very good D-IAA Montana. But since I grew up following Stanford sports, I still follow them. Who the hell do I root for? I’m all confused.

    Don’t knock Davis; they beat Stanford, the Duke of the west (the parallels are eerie).

    Oh, my goodness!

    Speaking of Boulder, what a football debacle to top off the DA mess!

    Last year our steady coach was fired largely because he was a no nonsense traditional playing to win.

    Now they hired a Wussie named Hawkins, real “nice” guy to play “nice” politically-correct, sensitive football, and cut out the rough stuff both by players and fans.

    The ultimate debacle, after paying off a predicted weaker secondary foe, little ole Montana state, to come play them so they could get a win to brag about, lo and behold, little ole Montana State beat hell out of CU at home 19 to 10. Which is worse, payola in recruiting schemes aimed at winning, or payola to a predicted losing opponent team?

    Hawkins has even threatened the CU fans if they don’t behave, he will forfeit games.

    What has the sport come to? In Boulder, you got to be nice, kiss the sacked quarterback on the cheek and apologize.

    You got to cry in public over the team’s excess aggressiveness.

    What happened to the old competitive spirit, kick ass, spit in their eyes on the field, and hug and celebrate after the game, not during it.

    Some schools should just sunset football altogether and shift over to crocket, badminton and volleyball.

    Hawkins was a successful coach at a low tier program (Boise State). He should be able to win at a higher profile school like Colorado. After Neuheisel and Barnett, the football team needed a bit of a cleaning up.

    overheard by my wife before the CU-MSU game, spoken by a local CU fan:

    “their A team is like our B team”


    but c’mon Polly, you’re not seriously blaming the DA for the Kerr stuff are you? I say the DA acted exactly as she should have. The media pumped all the bullshit up, not her. She brought in the suspect and DNA’d him immediately, exactly as she should have done. No harm done. Blame Kerr for making her spend all the money on it, not the other way around. [end tangent]

    yesterday UC Davis beat Montana State 45-0. Put that in your crack pipe and smoke it!
