    • “Sexton confirmed that UT is the only job Nick would possibly consider leaving Alabama for, and that his success there created special pressure for him,” Hicks wrote in the email to brother and current Regent Steve Hicks.
    • Tom Hicks met Brown over lunch to tell Brown about Saban and “wanted him to know of Saban’s interest if Mack wanted to make it his idea,” Hicks wrote. “Mack was adamant that he had no interest, and that he wanted to go out on top and leave UT in great place.”
    • Brown was apparently so upset at what he perceived was adminstration trying to pressure him out the door that he called his lawyer, who has threatened legal action if any more overtures to that effect are made. “If there are any more” attorney Joe Jamail said in September, “get ready for a lawsuit.”
    • There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name
    • There’s a ritual dedicated sports gamers go through with each new season. The excitement of peeling the shrinkwrap off the latest edition of NHL or NBA 2K quickly gives way to the realization that, once again, we’re going to throw away our promising careers.
    • Sure, Iron Man is all wry and meta, and The Hulk, particularly as played by Mark Ruffalo, has genuine pathos and pain, along with a dark sense of humor about his whole predicament.
    • He’s just a god who hangs out with other gods in a castle in space, occasionally hopping down to earth to save puny humans. He’s a hairy Superman carrying a hammer, for some reason.
    • The Whedon-ization of the Marvel franchise was, it’s now obvious, a genius move, linking genuine fanboy enthusiasm with a healthy awareness of how nerdy all of this is; these movies love and mock in equal measure.
    • There’s no real reason that out of all the trillions of beings in the universe this world-destroying disease would choose Thor’s girlfriend as its host except for the fact that Natalie Portman needs to be in the sequel, in various positions of peril.
    • It’s the secret ingredient that makes these movies work; he takes it just seriously enough, and not a smidge more.
    • But mostly, Thor: The Dark World is here to make you laugh, against the backdrop of a yet another Battle To Save The Universe.
    • They’ve hit on the right tone, that Whedon tone, of deference and celebration mixed with wit and spectacle.
    • Miami Dolphins coaches asked player Richie Incognito, who was the offensive line’s undisputed leader, to toughen up teammate Jonathan Martin after he missed a voluntary workout last spring, multiple sources told the Sun Sentinel. The sources told the paper they believe that Incognito, who is accused of using racially incendiary language and bullying tactics against Martin, may have taken those orders too far. …
    • Sources say that communication took place when Martin skipped two days of the team’s OTA program, and Incognito was encouraged by his coaches to make a call that would “get him into the fold,
    • . A less-kind reading of the “toughen up” instructions, meanwhile, raises the possibility that Incognito was embracing his role as bully at the request of his coaches.
    • Bongino is so upset with what he witnessed that he is now running for Congress because he feels it’s the only way to take America back from the sycophants who have made every effort to enrich themselves with money and power at the expense of the American people.
