Move along, nothing to see here…or its in no way sketchy that I can’t tell you where I got these tickets

Anyone who’s had the misfortune of spending time in Texas knows that you spend every waking moment trying to escape; and watching the NY Giants ruthlessly dismember Real America’s Team would drive any warm-blooded American to drink.  But while each impulse on its own is fine, combining the two at 4am is frowned upon, and thus Oklahoma State’s breakout sensation, WR Justin Blackmon found himself arrested for a DUI as he raced back to Oklahoma after attending the Dallas Cowboys play the Giants last Sunday.  Mike Gundy did what any successful college coach would do and suspended him for one likely meaningless game against a hapless Kansas State team to teach him a lesson about how football players are treated differently than everyone else. 

But here’s the part of the story I think will have greater long-term consequences. 

“Blackmon said he can’t comment on where he got the tickets for the NFL game.”

NCAA investigators have been spending most of this season finding new and creative ways to torture Butch Davis for the transgressions of Marvin Austin, among others.  But methinks that there’s a concerned citizen somewhere in Big 12 10 “Whatever Texas Wants To Do We’re Cool With That” Conference country who may feel that it is his civic duty to point out to the NCAA that if you can’t comment on where you received tickets to a sold out NFL football game, you got them from an agent.  Will be interested to see if anything else comes of this.
