Here is a nice story

Multiple SEC assistants say that Sam's coming out will be used by rival schools to negatively recruit against Missouri. "Coaches are going to be all over this," said one assistant at another school.

If that sounds like backward thinking, that's because it is. It also provides insight into the way football coaches operate. Some are tactful in how they approach things. Others, not so much.

"It's a powder keg just waiting to explode," the assistant said.

The assistant predicts that opposing coaches will pose a number of questions. "Why did [Missouri] cover this up?" the assistant said. "What else are they hiding? What were they trying to do? Keep a secret society?"

He added: "I can see it getting really ugly."

There is the low road and then, if you want to take a really deep dive, there is the SEC football recruiting road

And speaking of low roads, El Rushbo has been gracious enough to share his thoughts on Michael Sam

Only excerpts below - to truly appreciate America's most popular radio personality click on the link below and immerse yourself in the wit and wisdom of Mr. Limbaugh

Why is Homosexuality a Political Issue?

RUSH: Now, ladies and gentlemen, yesterday on this program, I mentioned it but did not discuss it, and that is Michael Sam, University of Missouri, announcing that he's gay prior to entering the NFL.....

Why is homosexuality political? Why is there a political aspect to -- or agenda associated with -- homosexuality, and why does heterosexuality have no political agenda at all? ... Heterosexuality does not have activists. (interruption) But they're under assault. You say, "Heterosexuality may be 95, 98% of the population."

They're under assault by the two to 5% that are homosexual.
...

CALLER: The reason I called is the other side has purposely made homosexuality political, what you were talking earlier. The left believes that men like me, who hold to that traditional American value system, they think we're on the ropes, and they seek a knockout punch. That's why I think all this talk about a gay football player's coming up....

RUSH: Why is the political agenda that is attached to homosexuality in opposition to traditional American values?

CALLER: The traditional American values that I always think of are God, family, country -- and I think the left, all the different groups, are attacking the traditional quarterback. The referee is in the game. They're piling on. They see a victory with their worldview by piling on any way they can. So they all come together and they're just piling on.

Why would they want to blow up traditional American values?

RUSH: Yeah.

CALLER: You know, I wonder that all the time, too. Because if you examine what traditional American values do for people, you tend to come out on top at the end of your journey in life. I don't know why they do that. It's puzzling to me. I'm hoping you can guide me on that.

RUSH: Obviously I can.
...

[NEW] CALLER: Is it courageous -- well, they never say what it is. Is it courageous because he's gay? Is it courageous because he came out and said he's gay? Is it courageous because he's gay, said he's gay, and wants to play football? Or what is courageous about it?

RUSH: What do you think?

CALLER: I have no idea.

RUSH: Yes, you do
. You're just like everybody else. You just don't want to say it.

CALLER: Okay, ask again. What do I think is courageous about it?

RUSH: Okay, Moochelle (My Belle), after her husband says he wouldn't let his son, Trayvon Martin, play, now here comes Moochelle saying this Michael Sam is courageous, this a courageous man. Wait a minute. Courageous to play something that your intelligence says shouldn't be played, 'cause it's too risky, cause it's too dangerous? It might lead to suicide, concussion, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and yet it's courageous to play? I thought last week it was stupid to play? Now all of a sudden it's courageous? Why is it courageous? Well, because he's gay. All right. Well, what's the courage? Where is the courage? Why does being gay make him courageous in entering the NFL? ...

Remember something that I said last week to help you understand the left, particularly leftists in the media. Liberals believe that it is an act of bigotry to be an objective reporter. Why? Why is being objective bigoted? The simple answer is: If you are objective, it means you are not championing the victims that you see left and right as you go about your job. If you're objective, it means you're not standing up for, calling attention to, making the case for, members of minorities.

Oh, I got an e-mail: "What do you mean, a political agenda to homosexuality and there's no political agenda to heterosexuality?" I mean exactly what I said. Homosexuality has a political agenda attached to it. What is homosexuality? Same sex, same sex. There is a political agenda to that.

There is no political agenda to opposite-sex couples having sex. There's nothing political about it. What's political about same sex? By the way, I have a question from Moochelle (My Belle). If Michael Sam, University of Missouri, announced homosexual, is courageous for coming out and joining the NFL, would a bisexual player be half courageous? (interruption) Well, I'm just asking. It's what I do here. I mean, I observe and I react. Would a bisexual player be half as courageous as a homosexual player coming out?

http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/20...olitical_issue

Damn leftists politicizing Michael Sam

Ryan Clark has hit the big time - his comments on Sam are linked at the bottom of Mr. Limbaugh's transcript . Wat to go Ryan

Yeah - shut it down - Rush Limbaugh is the gift that keeps on giving - fitting he gets the last word (unless Lady Steel wants to take one more swing at me)

I think we should try and leave the politics in the locker room.
