This is just plain cool.

It's also a great example of stats being skewed via self-selection. Take a look at how Obama "polls" via Twitter users - it's a LANDSLIDE!! I don't know how much better Electoral-vote.com and Hubdub.com work around the self-selection bias but at least it looks a bit more reasonable.

In addition, it's a great lesson in the oddities of the electoral college system. Obama and McCain could be a dead-heat percentage wise but as long as Obama carries the big states he's can walk away with it...hence the ever present discussion of battleground states.

Here's the keys to the article:
UF welcomes back player that beat up then shot at another student....with an AK-47!?!?!?
FSU welcomes back a player that was caught with a gun and weed
Penn State has had 46 players arrested since 2002 and says "I can't control what they do off field"
Georgia had 8 players arrested this off season

AND THEY STILL CALL MIAMI THUG U!

Every single REAL Canes fan needs to get behind Randy Shannon and support him 110% - no questions asked.

In a pathetic attempt to achieve "Project 119" and greater glory, the Chinese government has actually done the opposite and "lost face" by doing things like this....sad....pathetic and sad
