Blaze of Glory

Remember that post I wrote just a few days ago that said Pitt was making all the right moves and fan sentiment was at a ten year high?  Well, I should have known better.  If you haven’t yet seen the news, this happened:

So 2000 – 2014 eh?

The good news is that nobody outside of Pittsburgh is actually talking about Pitt, including our friends at Sports Illustrated.

The bad news is that since Pitt (and arguably Northwestern) are the small fry in this fish tank, IF the court finds that there is wrongdoing by any university, it’s very likely that we’ll get the worst of it, while the Alabamas, the Notre Dames and the Penn States of the world get, well you know…

However, it’s also entirely plausible that Blazer was not acting on the behalf of any university at all, and he was simply trying to entice these student athletes to use his financial services after they turned pro.

And to think that just twelve hours ago all was well with the world.  If only.

Last but not least, this Blazer dude is sleazy, and he is from Pittsburgh, and had dealings (apparently post-college) with both former Pitt RB Kevan Barlow and DeJuan Blair.    Greaaat….

So if you’re a believer in the power of positive thought, we can get out of this.  Just repeat after me:  “Plausible Deniability.  Plausible Deniability.  Plausible Deniability”.

Hail to Pitt (smh)
