I don't generally make resolutions but I'm going to make an exception this year.
I am putting my mobile phone down while driving. That means no texting, no fumbling with playlist, no looking up espn scores, no changing Pandora stations, no google searches, etc.

A&T athletics director Hilton calls discussion of FBS move 'a thought exercise'
By Jeff Mills email@example.com
GREENSBORO — For now, the talk of N.C. A&T moving up to the Football Bowl Subdivision is just that.
Is it the winner of the Celebration Bowl or is it determined by the final polls? If so, which poll (Sheridan, BoxtoRow,HSRN, BCSP, etc). Are D2 teams factored into the equation?
The past three years the CB has pretty much had a #1 vs #2 scenario so it was fairly easy to determine the champ but that might not be the case this year. I had assumed that it was still determined by the final Sheridan Poll?
Has anyone seen a Sheridan poll this season?
A Time magazine with Trump on the cover hangs in his golf clubs. It’s fake.
The framed copy of Time magazine was hung up in at least five of President Trump’s clubs, from South Florida to Scotland. Filling the entire cover was a photo of Donald Trump.
“Donald Trump: The ‘Apprentice’ is a television smash!” the big headline said. Above the Time nameplate, there was another headline in all caps: “TRUMP IS HITTING ON ALL FRONTS . . . EVEN TV!”
This cover — dated March 1, 2009 — looks like an impressive memento from Trump’s pre-presidential career. To club members eating lunch, or golfers waiting for a pro-shop purchase, it seemed to be a signal that Trump had always been a man who mattered. Even when he was just a reality TV star, Trump was the kind of star who got a cover story in Time.
But that wasn’t true. The Time cover is a fake.
There was no March 1, 2009, issue of Time magazine. And there was no issue at all in 2009 that had Trump on the cover.
In fact, the cover on display at Trump’s clubs, observed recently by a reporter visiting one of the properties, contains several small but telling mistakes. Its red border is skinnier than that of a genuine Time cover, and, unlike the real thing, there is no thin white border next to the red. The Trump cover’s secondary headlines are stacked on the right side — on a real Time cover, they would go across the top.
And it has two exclamation points. Time headlines don’t yell.
“I can confirm that this is not a real TIME cover,” Kerri Chyka, a spokeswoman for Time Inc., wrote in an email to The Washington Post.
Early indications sound like DCEU nailed this one. Finally!
If it's actually as good as I'm hearing I'll probably see it twice.
Authorities: 11 Alcorn players arrested after campus brawl
LORMAN, Miss. -- Eleven Alcorn State University football players have been arrested after authorities say a fight broke out on the school's Mississippi campus.
News outlets reports Claiborne County Sheriff Frank Davis says charges have been filed against each of the players by other students, and more arrests are likely to be made Thursday.
Davis says the charges against the players are all misdemeanors and range from malicious mischief to simple assault.
The fight started April 10 in the school's cafeteria. Officials say the event was captured on several cellphone cameras and widely circulated last week.
It's not clear if any of the accused has an attorney.
I know MEAC folks are tired of my one man crusade but it's time for us to face reality. We do not belong at the DI level!!! We don't have the resources to compete, we are constantly mired in APR issues and we are often on the wrong end of lopsided losses.
Outside of bowling and occasionally track we are pretty much the bottom feeders of every sport. Let's take a look at my beloved MEAC revenue sports:
Record vs FCS OOC completion 0 - 12
Lowest rated FCS scholarship conference
Record vs. DI OOC competition 17 - 137
Games lost by 20 or more points = 51
Lowest rated DI basketball conference
Most of our out of conference wins now come against D2 competition so why not move to D2? The exposure can't be worth the continued humiliation?

49ers QB Olsen threatened to kill victim and himself before rape, prosecutor says
Charlotte 49er quarterback Kevin Olsen, charged Sunday with rape and other crimes, threatened to strangle himself with a phone charger moments before sexually assaulting his accuser, a Mecklenburg County prosecutor said in court Monday morning.
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Olsen is expected to be freed on $103,000 bond later today on three counts of felony second-degree forcible rape, communicating threats, assault on a female and second-degree sex offense (forcible fondling). The incident occurred at 3:30 a.m. Sunday at Olsen’s apartment in University City, near the UNCC campus, according to Assistant District Attorney Kristen Northrup. Olsen and his accuser were dating, authorities said.
Olsen, 22, is the brother of Carolina Panthers’ tight end Greg Olsen.
