    Masterful job by Ole Miss on timing this release so that it's buried as much as possible. Credit where it's do for a well done PR job here.


    Except... it looks like the link doesn't work.


    Hmmm... something might be up here.


    Oh, hell! ****ing SEC.

    Friday is the best day for negative press releases. Even better when a 3 day weekend is starting. Add in the Baylor stuff, and boom, great PR play!

    Imagine if we had a PR staff like that during the Barnett era. Sigh.

    How does paying a self imposed fine to yourself work?

    Yeah. They're doing a masterful job here.

    1. Delaying for a couple months and then releasing this in the midst of the Baylor news dominating headlines.
    2. Choosing a Friday ahead of a holiday weekend to release.
    3. Positioning it as the most serious football allegations being pre-Freeze (despite 11/13 under his watch).
    4. Naming 28 total violations, so they can spin it as "most violations occurred in programs other than football".
    5. Filing a motion to delay NCAA hearing again due to the need to fully investigate the Tunsil statements that took them by surprise.

    (y)(y)(y)

    If CU would have played it this well in 2003, managing the media, coaching Barnett on how to deal with certain questions, and aggressively planting supportive stories... it wouldn't have been such a big scandal. The playbook for all other colleges is built on a foundation of "don't do like CU did" as THE cautionary tale.

    Round numbers look like you made it up. Random numbers look like there was thought put in to it.

    In another brilliant strategic move, the Ole Miss report is a ****ing phone book. Not only does the media have to commend them for a comprehensive release, most of them will get lost in the damn thing. Verbosity is a great tool for watering things down and obfuscating.

    Exactly. Ole Miss' hope is that the NCAA takes one look at the lengthy train of logic and calculations that ended up with a $159K figure and says, "sounds reasonable to us" or at the worst, "we think you made a false step in logic and so the actual figure should be $250K" or something close.

    It gives a good anchor point in negotiations.

    Maybe.

    If this were to be held at a neutral site the venue might need to look for different teams.

    Let X = Fine per football violation
    Let Y = Fine per other violation
    13x + 15y = 159,326

    Let X = Y
    13X + 15X = 28X
    159,326 / 28 = $5,690.21429
    $5,690.21 x 28 = $159,325.88
    And that's my 12 cents worth.
    Simple.

    No, just his mental capacity.

    I thought I smelled something burning.

    CU should probably take notes here.

    The thing about this that's so funny is that everybody knows why they're doing it this way. We laugh it off and MSU laughs right along with us.

    They timed it with the holiday weekend, Briles getting fired yesterday is just a fortunate coincidence.
