Jameis Winston Suspended From Baseball, Ordered to Pay $32 For Stolen Crab Legs
23 Jul 2014

This April, Jameis Winston shoplifted some crab legs from a Publix supermarket.

Winston is the youngest player ever to win the Heisman Trophy, and only the second freshman to do so. Last year, as a freshman quarterback for the Florida State University Seminoles, Winston completed 257 of 384 pass attempts (66.9% completion) for 4,057 passing yards and 40 touchdowns. He also rushed 193 yards for 4 more TDs.

Those are some solid accomplishments for a 19-year-old college freshman. But wait, there’s more. Winston also plays for the Semionoles baseball team as outfielder and relief pitcher. At least, he did.

Winston has been suspended from the baseball team over the crab legs.

He was also ordered to reimburse the grocery store to the tune of $32, and complete some community service. Football coach Jimbo Fisher – after speaking with Winston and baseball coach Mike Martin – has decided that’s punishment enough:

“People need to realize, when you suspend him in baseball, you understand how important baseball is to him? That cut his heart out.”

The shoplifting incident may have been an honest mistake. At least, according to Coach Fisher. Apparently Winston also got some wings from a restaurant two doors down from the Publix; he paid for the wings. Fisher claims that’s relevant somehow. The coach also thinks it’s relevant that Winston usually shops at Winn Dixie (where he “always” pays), not Publix.

On the day in question, Winston was reportedly approached by a number of people who recognized him. According to Fisher, he walked out of the store with the crab legs in his hand – making no attempt to hide them – in front of police witnesses. It was, again according to Fisher, an honest mistake with no malice or intention to steal.

Tim Alexander’s Open Heart Surgery Successful

Drummer Tim Alexander, known for his work with Primus and Puscifer as well as A Perfect Circle and the Blue Man Group, underwent open-heart surgery yesterday (Monday, July 21) to remove blockage which contributed to his heart attack over the weekend. The surgery was successful.

An announcement was made via the Facebook page for Primus yesterday:

Tim Alexander Is Out of Surgery

The Mighty Tim “Herb” Alexander has pulled through surgery, the blockage from his heart has been removed with no complications and all signs point to a glorious and speedy recovery.

Alexander’s family had asked fans for … well, not just prayers and well-wishes exactly. Fans were asked to help “carry the beat.” Here is a note from the family before Tim’s surgery:

Some time during the hours of 7:30 am to 12:30 pm (pacific time) tomorrow, July 21st, Tim’s heart will be stopped for his open heart surgery. The heart is like a drum and we need to help keep it going, so during this time we ask you to please help carry that beat. Whether it be drums, percussion or even in your head, we would like to start a global drum circle to send positive, healing energy to Tim. Any and all prayer, healing words and thoughts at this time would also be greatly appreciated. Follow and send any caring, healing words to #carrythebeat on Twitter (@TimAlexander or @Primus). Thank you.

An outpouring of support from fans through social media offers a pretty good indication that the “global drum circle” was joined. Tim’s surgery was a success and the drummer is expected to make a full recovery.

Alexander is currently in his third stint with Primus; the band is scheduled to perform at Riot Fest Denver in September.

State of the NCAA: Cheating Pays?
22 Jul 2014

Bob Bowlsby, commissioner for the Big 12 Conference, took a bleak tone in his “state of the conference” address yesterday at the Big 12 media days event. Bowlsby criticized the NCAA and warned fans that changes are coming, and most of them are bad.

“If you like intercollegiate athletics the way it is, you’re going to hate it going forward.”

The whole NCAA is waiting for the decision in the O’Bannon antitrust lawsuit - a decision that could be issued very soon. That class action suit centers around the NCAA’s use of former collegiate athlete’s images for commercial purposes. Whichever way the ruling goes, an appeal is all but guaranteed. Several other lawsuits are also in the pipeline.

Meanwhile, football players at Northwestern spearhead a unionization effort which is currently being consider by the National Labor Relations Board.

“I expect to be in court most of the rest of my career,” says Bowlsby.

Collegiate sports are changing, and the NCAA – the supposed governing body – is in rough shape, according to Bowlsby. The O’Bannon suit could end up costing millions in lost ad revenue, and Bowlsby thinks that’s just what’s going to happen. And when it does, he believes we can look forward to huge cuts to sports budgets.

While women’s sports are protected by Title IX, Bowlsby thinks – and he’s probably right – that coaches and athletic directors will refuse pay cuts and athletic departments will do whatever they can to save football and basketball programs. Do you enjoy college baseball? Tennis? Rowing?

But that’s not all:

“Enforcement is broken,” said Bowlsby. “The infractions committee hasn’t had a hearing in almost a year, and I think it’s not an understatement to say cheating pays presently. If you seek to conspire to certainly bend the rules, you can do it successfully and probably not get caught in most occasions.”

Bowlsby qualified that he does not believe cheating to be “rampant” in collegiate sports. Merely that those who do cheat are unlikely to face any consequences in today’s NCAA.

NCAA enforcement director Jon Duncan disagrees:  “Unless you’re on the Committee on Infractions or our staff you don’t know what’s in the pipeline. We don’t publish our tracking chart. They assume if they’re not reading about us every day, we’re not doing our job.”

Tim Alexander Survives Heart Attack

Tim Alexander, drummer of Primus and Puscifer, and formerly A Perfect Circle, has suffered a non-fatal heart attack and will undergo open-heart surgery next week.

Alexander, who has also performed with the Blue Man Group and a number of other acts, recently re-joined Primus. He originally replaced Jay Lane in Primus in 1988 and stayed with them until 1996, returning from 2003 to 2010 and again late last year.

Les Claypool told Rolling Stone in September that Alexander was returning to the band, and hinted at upcoming recording sessions. Word of Alexander’s heart attack, however, came from the Maynard James Keenan-led Puscifer via Twitter and Facebook:

Calling All Cars! Rough news. @timalexander suffered a heart attack. Open Heart Surgery on Mon/Tues. Global Positive Thoughts, Por favor. @Puscifer We need our Herb the Ginseng Drummer aka Peter Merkin alive and thieving.

The next day, Saturday, Claypool released his own statement on the news:

Hello all,

As some of you may already know, our friend and über drummer Tim “Herb” Alexander is having a bypass procedure to remove blockage from arteries near his heart. He is a strong Herculean fellow and we all expect him to be up and around in no time but with all surgical endeavors we want to make sure he has the best energy working for him so let’s all throw our coins in the nearest fountain, wish on the first star of the night, blow out the birthday cake candles with him in mind, pray to whichever deity seems appropriate and generally send good thoughts his way so we can soon, once again, experience the glory that is the magnificent percussive rhythm of the mighty Tim Alexander.

Les Claypool

Alexander’s surgery has been scheduled for early next week, reportedly either Monday or Tuesday.
