Apologies for the brief shift in focus from the game of the week, but this is too annoyingly stupid to go unmentioned:
Apparently the NCAA has decided that it was okay for Ian Johnson of Boise State to help support himself by selling crocheted scarves etc., before he was famous, but now he has to stop it.
You might think, given that the guy manages to play football, get acceptable grades, own his own house, work as a plumber's assistant, crochet, and date the head cheerleader for Boise State, that the NCAA people might conclude, "Hey, this seems like the kind of slightly eccentric guy whom we could use to pretend that we really are interested in student-athletes, instead of being a farm league for the NFL."
You would be wrong. What a bunch of idiots.
