What's really good people?! Today is Friday and while I'll be slogging it out at the new basecamp there's something I really wanted to hit this week before I dive into work. We'll get to that after the jump, for now I've got a handful of fun things to hit on. No particular order of importance but I'm putting this first because I definitely need folks to get over to the site and vote. The Sandwich Bracket is raging folks and while your March Madness Bracket got busted and you had 0 control over it, the Sandwich Bracket is one that people like you get a say in. Go vote for the regionals, go help turn the fortunes of the Kentucky Hot Brown, the Country Ham Biscuit and all the other regionals.

So now some Flo Rida because I'm in that sort of a mood.


People, I'm doing a Spartan Race tomorrow so there is only one thing to say; #Pray4Felder. My best friend, a college teammate of mine, and I are going to partake in this thing and combined I think we have like six days of actual training for it. None of it in the last three weeks. Neither of us are good at running any sort of distance. Neither of us particularly enjoys physical challenge. Both of us will finish and we'll have some folks there taking photographic proof of this. Also proof that I'm doing it is right here, I'm bib number 1388. THAT'S MY LUCKY NUMBER! NOT!!

Now we'll get into the fetch because I've got something pretty serious to go with a Fetch Friday veteran.


Before I get into transfer policy and how totally ****** up it is where kids are concerned we'll take a moment to just remind you of how awesome Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Wales, really is. She's killing the whole charity aspect of it, she's handling the PR demands like a boss, she's actually making the Royal Family a bit of a family and her fashion game has its swag on a million.

The last point is not really up for contention. She's not busting out all designer everything but she is making it work and that's just flatout awesome. It seems like just yesterday we were busting out "Friday, It's So Fetch! Vol. 2" where Kate was getting married and I had woken up early for the Royal Wedding and random dudes were attempting to make me feel unmanly about it but then I remembered that I don't use television to determine if I am a man or not. Sucks for those of you who do but for me the Royal Wedding was just a cool event to watch and there were some mighty fancy clothes rocked, including the weird hats that Fergie's kids wore.

Yes, I wrote that all from memory because I still follow the Duchess like whoa.

Speaking of "whoa" her latest move that I absolutely adored, hate I didn't toss this in like a week or so ago, was the tangerine jeans. For starters she went and kicked it with the field hockey team as they prepared for the Olympics, as a guy who has friends on the national team and who watches UNC field hockey plenty; that is badass to me. Kate got out there and mixed it up and she did it all in tangerine jeans. I highly recommend this move, seriously, tangerine should be acquired ladies. Hell, after much consideration I think I'll be acquiring some tangerine-y shorts for the summer season.

Alright time to get serious here so fall out of Kate love for the end of this write up.

Signed w/ a FBS college football team in 2009? 68% chance you had a change in head coach, 86% for another Off C & 88% for another Def C.

That's the tweet that I got from friend and now co-worker Adam Jacobi earlier this week. I haven't been able to find a place for it at Bleacher Report so you guys win here at the website.

Do you guys see those numbers? It's not that it is staggering, it is, it just really ties into how much total ******** the transfer rules are. You people who get pissed when a guy like Amir Carlisle gets to play but your transfer doesn't are some total selfish assholes. Everyone should get to play. Every single one of those kids who transfers should get to play so when one kid is allowed, regardless of reason, that's a damn positive.

Look at the numbers, seriously, head coaches are hired and fired and taking new jobs at a ridiculous clip. If you don't think it matters ask guys like Quinton Coples or Zach Brown at North Carolina. Ask Ryan Mallett how the whole "new coach thing" would have worked out for him had he stayed. Hell ask me how much it sucked because I can tell you, unequivocally that it does blow.

Playing for a guy who didn't recruit you is a crapshoot at best. More often it turns into a total crapfest where you don't fit what he wants, he doesn't feel like he owes you anything and ultimately there is no loyalty. Without loyalty the relationship is touch and go and when a new coach doesn't do things the way the old coach does it can absolutely suck.

Alright I've complained enough the point here is that with such tremendous fluidity in the coaching spot there needs to be a way for kids to free themselves of the school they are at and they should not be penalized. I've gone pretty in depth as to why here on the site just over a month ago and this measure to eliminate the one year penalty needs to be enacted like a decade ago.
