Stanford Band Lebron

Stanford Band Lebron - In a move as weak as the college bowl system itself, Orange Bowl officials have announced that the Stanford Band will not be allowed to perform at halftime of the Orange Bowl. So it’s come to this: the band is being punished for something it might do. And speculation is that it’s all to protect LeBron James.

While I’ve seen no official statement from the Orange Bowl, I do know that Stanford’s planned halftime performance is entitled “Recent Events in the Pro Sports World in Miami.” That can mean only one thing; a devastating satirical takedown of the Marlins’ Dan Uggla LeBron James. Hilarity was sure to ensue, until Dean Wormer stepped in and invoked double secret probation.

We all know of what the Stanford Band is capable. In the scheme of college bands, it’s George Carlin in a world of Lawrence Welks. Devilishly raucous and often over the top, the Stanford Band has the courage to ditch the big hats and speak truth to power … something totally alien to the DNA of most college administrators, and any bowl game official.

My suggestion: The band should go to a high school somewhere and perform their planned halftime show, and post it on YouTube. You know it’ll go viral, and possibly get more attention than if it were actually on TV.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
