SMQB Reporting on Maryland Trying to Have the Spread Option Ruled Illegal

Me have no time to blog today at least until after the game tonight. But thankfully, Sunday Morning Quarterback does.

Marland's Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a Sept. 2006 injunction favoring Maryland's defense, which had filed a lawsuit against West Virginia coach Rich Rodriguez, accusing him of violating the Eighth Amendment protection against cruel and unusual punishment by unleashing the formation for 340 yards rushing in WVU's 45-24 rout in Morgantown.

In a decision issued by a three-judge panel, the court ruled that "the preliminary injunction ... burdens more expression than necessary to protect Maryland's strategic interest and was an unlawful prior restraint upon Pat White and Steve Slaton's right to humiliate an overpursuing defense on national television."

Thank you SMQB! We needed a laugh on such a day!

And for one more laugh....
