Looking at Gundy's comments from April, it's a fascinating perspective in human psychology. I think he's being genuine when he's saying that OAN is a source of unbiased news. i'm not trying to make this a left vs. right thing. i think it's just interesting that he probably truly believes that, just like liberals probably truly believe some of their news sources are unbiased. Probably a source of a lot of our issues today.

Thank you for this explanation, I have never heard of OAN. So I googled it, "On Another Note" is all I got. So, I was confused on the offense. One America News Network, I have just learned as a far-right news outlet.

Regarding the biased vs non-biased. IMHO, all news is biased, simply by choosing what to report as news. So, even if they don't show any opinion, the choice in topics has influence. I don't watch a lot of news anymore, but, I do take all of it with a ton of salt, grain isn't enough. I know who I am watching, and which way they lean/jump. So, I do my best to filter the information. Honestly, I trust the information that I get here, over the news. More respect, though still bias, since we all have it.

John Oliver is not neutral, but he did a long report on OAN. For some, it's a little more than just a conservative slant. They use actual Russian reporters, congratulated Roy Moore after running a wildly erroneous story about how he had won the Alabama Senate race and called Black Lives Matter a criminal organization.

New allegations against Iowa. In a shocker to no one, seems like it wasn't just Doyle who was the problem

I hadn’t been following this story closely until now.

I feel bad for the student athletes who went through this. But that athletic department has been a cesspool for decades, and as far as I’m concerned it can just burn to the ground.

Karma eventually came for Bruce Pearl. It can come for the Iowa DIA, too.

I certainly feel for the athletes who experienced these problems. I do hope that nothing like that has happened here.
Something like this did happen here. It’s just that at Iowa it seems race-related, while here Beckman was an equal opportunity prick.

By the way, some similar issues at Okie St with Gundy. Seems Beckman’s apple didn’t fall far from that coaching tree.

It seems like 75-80% of college football coaches must be lunatics. I wonder what it would take for Iowa to cut ties with Ferentz. I realize there will be an investigation, but I suspect he has the largest margin of "error" of almost any other coach in the country.

He would have to go all Jerry Sandusky and then there would still be pitchforks and torches to retain him.
